Before Michael B. Jordan rejoined the Marvel Universe he starred in “Creed” with “Black Panther”, Director Ryan Coogler at the helm. “Creed II” is the continuation of the Rocky film series and the sequel to that 2015 film.
Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family’s past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what’s worth fighting for, and discover that nothing’s more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can’t escape your history.
Coogler takes on Executive Producing role this time around, Steven Caple Jr. makes his feature film debut with an original screenplay written by Stallone himself. Reprising their roles, Phylicia Rashad, Wood Harris, Andre Ward, Tessa Thompson and Dolph Lundgren as Ivan Drago.
