“Creed 2” Could Have A “Rocky IV” Connection

Talk of a sequel to “Creed” began almost immediately after Ryan Coogler’s “Rocky” spin-off film opened to rave reviews from all corners along with becoming a box-office hit.

One idea that was floated and was subsequently shot down quickly by series producer Irwin Winkler was a prequel reuniting Rocky Balboa and Carl Weathers‘ Apollo Creed. At the time it was confirmed that any sequel would focus on Michael B. Jordan’s Adonis Creed character, son of Apollo.

However, Stallone dropped a post on Instagram today using some Photoshop to tease a tantalising idea about a “Creed” sequel – one that could involve Adonis facing off against Drago (Dolph Lundgren) who killed Adonis’ father in the ring in “Rocky IV,” or someone akin to him like Drago’s son. Check out the post below.

“Creed 2” has been announced but currently hasn’t got a production date or director let alone a release date.
