‘Creed 2’ Trailer: Adonis Creed aims to rewrite history against Viktor Drago
Adonis Creed has his heart set on rewriting history in the forthcoming new film Creed 2.
The follow-up to the acclaimed Creed, Michael B. Jordan returns as the son of Apollo Creed in the ever-expanding Rocky franchise starring Sylvester Stallone. The sequel, which welcomes director Steven Caple Jr who is replacing Ryan Coogler, sees a return of old faces that Rocky fans will remember from years goneby.
“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,” the film synopsis reads. “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.”
