Sylvester Stallone posted the first photo from his upcoming Rocky spinoff, Creed.
The photo features Rocky (Stallone) coaching the son of former world heavyweight champ Apollo Creed, Adonis Johnson (Fantastic Four star Michael B. Jordan). Creed tells the story of Adonis Johnson who ups and moves to Philadelphia to be trained by the great Rocky Balboa.
Adonis was born after his father’s death and despite the circumstances of his father’s death decides to become a boxer and be trained by his father’s best friend. Verging on spoiler territory for the classic films, but many will be hoping that Rocky is more willing to throw in the towel if necessary this time around.
The movie will be directed by Ryan Coogler, who is known for his work on Fruitvale Station (2013), and Locks (2009). Creed stars Sylvester Stallone, Michael B. Jordan, Graham McTavish, and Phylicia Rashad.
Creed currently has a November 25th release date in North America. We’re expecting details about a more widespread release in the near future.
