Spin-Offs can be a hard gamble, especially when it’s a spin-off from a critically acclaimed franchise like Rocky. However, Creed surprised many as a well crafted story that paid homage to the classic characters we fell in love with decades ago. Now, it has officially been announced that the highly anticipated sequel has begun production with Warner Bros. And MGM releasing an official synopsis.
Creed 2’s story follows Adonis struggling to balance his personal obligations and training for his next big fight. Adonis, with Rocky by his side, will be going up against an opponent who has ties to his family’s past. The duo will confront their shared legacy and learn that nothing’s more important than family.
Ryan Coogler will not be returning to the director’s chair but will serve as Executive Producer as Steven Caple Jr. takes the mantle. All of the cast is slated to return which includes Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson, Phyilicia Rashad and Wood Harris. Dolph Lundgren will also reprise his role as Ivan Drago with Florian “The Big Nasty” Munteanu as his son, Viktor Drago.
