Well the “Creed II” trailer is finally here and I’m already impressed with it. Looks freakin’ awesome.
A lot of you know I’m a huge Rocky fan. Love the Rocky series and I’m loving the Creed spin-offs too. Can’t wait for this one.
I had to watch this trailer a couple of times and some of you may ask, where’s Dolph? When I first watched it, I asked myself that same question. “Why didn’t Dolph get put in the trailer when he’s in the movie?” Well, after watching the trailer a couple of times, Dolph is actually in it if you look closely. Dolph is in the trailer but very briefly.
In the trailer, there’s a short clip of Ivan’s son pushing Adonis on stage during weigh-ins and you can see Dolph on stage. That was the only time Dolph as Ivan Drago was seen in the trailer but I’m sure we’ll see more of Dolph as Ivan Drago in trailer no. 2. This is just a teaser.
It is a great trailer, though and it gave me goosebumps watching it. This is looking like to be the most realistic boxing movie ever. Can’t wait.
Some of you may say it’s kind of silly to bring Ivan Drago back but I don’t think so. I actually think it’s a great idea and makes sense for Ivan to come back. The whole point of the Creed spin-off is that Adonis wants to get revenge at Ivan Drago for killing his father in Rocky IV. Ivan is too old to fight in the ring so he has his son fight Adonis instead. Rocky’s son vs. Ivan’s son is a great idea. That’s something that Apollo and Mickey would have wanted to happen.
Can’t wait for this movie and looking forward to seeing more trailers. Technically this is gonna be the 8th Rocky film.
