3 Reasons to Get Excited for Creed II
The upcoming “Creed II" has become the most anticipated movie of the year. The action-packed trailer featuring Michael B. Jordan, who is returning to the franchise following the massive success of Black Panther, was recently released and hype surrounding the movie is at an all-time high after. Fans of the "Rocky" franchise were pleasantly surprised with the most recent installment, featuring Jordan as the son of Apollo Creed, and early looks have us amped in anticipation for this fall release.
1. Adonis Johnson vs. Viktor Drago
The rivalry that set the world on fire in 1985 between Rocky Balboa and Ivan Drago, and made "Rocky IV" a timeless classic, is now getting re-ignited. Adonis, whose father was killed in the ring by Ivan, is gearing up to fight his son, Viktor, and get some closure regarding his father's death.
2. Returning and New Cast Members
The movie sees the return of Sly Stallone and Tessa Thompson playing key characters in the story, but much is expected from a newcomer to the franchise, Florian Munteanu, who plays Viktor. Judging by the promo pictures and the trailer dropped in June, both Michael and Florian absolutely tore it up in preparation for the movie. Expect great action and heightened emotions between the two.
3. Directing Staff
Originally, a sequel was supposed to be released in 2017, but both Michael B. Jordan and previous director Ryan Coogler were busy finishing up "Black Panther," so the movie production was pushed back by a year. This delay means that Coogler was involved only as a writer, and the directing reigns were given to Steven Caple Jr., an up-and-coming director who has several impressive projects lined up.
