Sly Stallone was set to direct Creed 2 but it looks like Sly backed out and now a director by the name of Steven Capel Jr. is set to take over. Even if Sly is no longer directing Creed 2, he still gonna star as Rocky Balboa in it, though. Michael B. Jordan and Tessa Thompson (who played Adonis’s pop-star girlfriend) will also return.
This film is probably gonna be about Adonis Creed wanting to get revenge at Ivan Drago for killing his father so Dolph Lundgren is probably gonna reprise his role as Drago. Dolph hasn’t been officially announced yet, but it will probably happen.
Also, if you look at Sly’s Instagram post, he confirmed that Brock Lesnar is gonna play Drago’s son. So Lesnar is gonna play a Russian boxer then, hey?
I’m sure Adonis Creed wants to get revenge at Ivan Drago for killing his father Apollo but Ivan would be too old to fight. That means Ivan’s son is probably gonna fight instead. Ivan is probably gonna be his son’s manager, I bet.
Anyway, will Rocky and Ivan go at it in a little fight? I think they will get violent at some point so who knows. Sly once joked that he would love Rocky to punch Ivan again so that would probably happen.
I loved the first Creed movie and I’m looking forward to the sequel. Now I wonder if Brock Lesnar has some acting chops ’cause he isn’t really a great speaker knowing his work in pro wrestling. Lesnar’s Creed 2 character probably won’t say much. He’ll probably just say one line similar to Ivan’s: “I must break you” catchphrase but Lesnar will say a little something different.
An Ivan Drago comeback is gonna be interesting, though. I’m sure the plot is gonna be that Adonis is desperate to fight Ivan for revenge, but Ivan ends up getting his son to fight instead.
