Adonis and Rocky are back in action in the Creed 2 trailer, and we have to say, we’ve missed them. It’s been three years since the release of the Ryan Coogler-directed Creed, the spinoff and seventh installment of the Rocky film series, in which we meet the son of Apollo Creed, Rocky Balboa’s rival-turned-friend. This time around, The Land director Steven Caple Jr. is at the helm, while Coogler serves as an executive producer.
In the first film, Adonis won our hearts with his determination, intense desire for family, and impressive six-pack. (What? We’re only human.) He’s back at it in the trailer for Creed 2, which sees Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson, and Phylicia Rashad all returning to reprise their roles. The film picks up after Adonis’s defeat by “Pretty” Ricky Conlan in Creed, as he struggles to balance his boxing ambitions with his new family with Bianca (Thompson), as well as training for a fight against Viktor Drago, the son of former prize champion boxer Ivan Drago (who killed his father Apollo during an exhibition match).
