Veteran action star Sylvester Stallone has teased that “Creed 2″ could be inspired by ‘Rocky I”. The 70-year-old actor shared a photoshopped movie poster in which Apollo Creed’s son Adonis Creed (Michael B Jordan) from the 2015 title stands toe to toe with his father’s biggest opponent and killer Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren), who featured in the 1985 film, on Instagram and vowed that “history will always repeat itself”. “Here’s a chance to stretch your imagination … History will always repeat itself in one for or another, just got to be ready!…Sins of the Father…. #creed2 # agentnickyc (siC), Stallone captioned the photo.
Stallone reprised his role as Rocky Balboa when the Rocky franchise was rebooted two years ago and the poster suggests that Drago could play a part in the plot of the ‘Creed’ sequel. The Ryan Coogler directed movie revolved around Apollo’s son Adonis and his quest to follow in his father’s footsteps to become a professional boxer. Rocky is persuaded to train Adonis and leads him to victory in a fight against Ricky Conlan.
