(HOLLYWOOD) — It’s all about family drama, and a new surprise opponent, in the just-released trailer for Creed 2.
Sylvester Stallone and Michael B. Jordan reprise their roles as Rocky Balboa and Adonis Johnson, respectively, with Adonis apparently taking a hard hit in the ring that puts him in the hospital and has his family concerned for his future if he fights again.
And there’s a new contender Johnson’s itching to fight — Vitor Drago, the son of the brutal Russian fighter Ivan Drago, the character played by Dolph Lundgren in 1985’s Rocky IV.
“Listen to me, this guy is dangerous,” Rocky tells Adonis.
“You don’t think I can beat him,” Adonis replies. But something tells us Adonis just might win.
Lundgren returns for Creed 2, with Florian Munteanu playing his son. Tessa Thompson and Phylicia Rashad are also back for the sequel, which opens November 21.
