Earlier today, Sylvester Stallone took to Instagram and revealed that he’s wrapped up the first draft (handwritten) of the upcoming Creed sequel. Rumors surfaced not too long ago that the sequel would feature a connection to Rocky IV, and Stallone’s post confirms this with the return of Ivan Drago!
Considering how Rocky IV remains one of my favorites from the original films and Creed is just an amazing piece of work, I’m doubly excited for this news. It’ll be interesting to see how the character (which will undoubtedly be reprised by Dolph Lundgren) comes to play in the story. Since he’s the one who killed Apollo Creed his meeting with Adonis is sure to be an awkward one.
There’s still no start date, or release date for the film, but with Coogler/Jordan wrapping up work on Black Panther and the script just about done, it shouldn’t be too long before we get more updates. Definitely hyped to see this one.
