The second round of Creed is arguably the most anticipated movie with a taste of combat sports expected in 2018. The Sweet Science drama follows the first film, featuring Michael B. Jordan as Adonis Johnson, son of Apollo Creed portrayed by Carl Weathers in the Rocky films.

The boxing icon of the big screen Sylvester Stallone also appears in the movie as the legendary, retired, fighter Rocky Balboa. Moreover his old foe Ivan Drago, portrayed by Dolph Lundgren returns to action. In addition, a new character has been added to the storyline – the son of Drago portrayed by the actor whose name is yet revealed.

Earlier this month numerous media reported the release date of Creed 2 scheduled for next November. On Wednesday Sylvester Stallone posted a new image on his Instagram dedicated to the film.

“It is coming in November!!! Thanksgiving!!!” Stallone wrote in the caption. “You’re really won’t know how tough you [are] until you have to stand toe to toe with your worst fear and knock it out cold!!!”

“How much is your legacy worth” says the tagline featured on the image below the Creed II title. The 12.25.2018 date stamp is located above it.

In addition, according to Variety a new director of Creed 2 is Steven Caple Jr. The film was expected to be directed by Stallone, however after the talks with Jordan and the execs, the decision was made to find another director.
