Sylvester Stallone has teased a familiar Rocky plot for Creed 2. The 70-year-old actor is hinting at a return to Russia for the boxing sequel, which fans will remember as the setting for 1985’s Rocky IV.
The fourth film of the franchise saw Rocky take revenge on Ivan Drago during the Cold War in Russia, after he killed his pal Apollo in the ring. And now his son, Adonis Creed, played by Michael B. Jordan, also looks set on revenge, as Stallone teased the plot for Creed 2 on Instagram, pitting Jordan’s character up against the big Russian:
So will Adonis head to Russia to confront his father’s past? We await for official confirmation on this but it’s looking likely based on Stallone’s posts.
Creed was a huge success in 2015 and a sequel is now highly anticipated, a release date is yet to be set.
