Drago vs Balboa?

So I don’t know about you, but I am pumped about Creed 2. Like a lot of us, I have been a fan of the Rocky series since I was a child, and I was pleasantly surprised by just how good the first Creed film was.

With Creed 2 (starring Michael B. Jordan) just days from release, we have been getting a slew of trailers and TV spots being released online. Usually, I stay away from a lot of trailers to keep myself from spoiling the film, but I am fascinated by this new films central antagonists Viktor and Ivan Drago. But what I’m writing to tell you about is that it looks like…


…Rocky has a fight with Ivan Drago.

The trailer below shows Sylvester Stallone and Dolph Lundgren (do I even need to tell you who they’re playing) rehearsing a small fight scene with their stunt doubles and then acting out a scene that features Rocky and Drago duking it out for old times sake.

Skip to the one minute mark for the action.


Personally, I love that this film is making Ivan Drago out to be the real bad guy of this film, giving him a character depth that he lacked in his last appearance in Rocky IV. And honestly, it looks like Dolph Lundgren is going to kill it in this one. Now hopefully he will play He-Man’s dad in the inevitable reboot of Masters of the Universe.

Creed 2 opens November 21st.
