Have no fear Michael B. Jordan is here
Michael B. Jordan stuns in the first Creed II trailer
Michael B. Jordan fans, rejoice: The first trailer for Creed II is here.
The clip, which dropped Wednesday, takes everything to the next level: The stakes are higher, the foe more menacing. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone shine as they reprise their roles of Adonis Creed and Rocky Balboa, respectively, in the sequel to 2015's Creed.
The trailer begins as Jordan's Creed finds himself struggling to keep his father's legacy alive as he continues to build his own, and ultimately builds to a pivotal reveal: Viktor Drago — the son of Ivan Drago, whose infamous punch killed Creed's father Apollo in Rocky IV — steps up to challenge Creed.
Creed earned more than $170 million worldwide and earned Stallone a 2016 Oscar nomination for Best Actor in a Supporting Role. Stallone wrote the screenplay for Creed II himself, and Steven Caple Jr. has signed on to direct. The film will reunite Jordan with Black Panther director Ryan Coogler, who is an executive producer on the film.
Creed II is set to hit theaters Nov. 21. Watch the full trailer below. Amari Pollard
