The Creed II Cast and Director on Building on an Iconic Legacy

Also, Russian is an extremely difficult language to learn, and Sylvester Stallone is an on-set prankster.

In 2015, Sylvester Stallone passed the torch to Michael B. Jordan, as Creed successfully introduced the world to another scrappy underdog in the Rocky saga, Adonis Creed. That film was a critical and commercial success, but it was just the first chapter of Adonis Creed’s journey. This week, the franchise returns to one of its most iconic moments — the tragic fight between Russian boxer Ivan Drago and Adonis Creed’s father Apollo in Rocky IV — for Creed II, a tale of revenge and redemption that bridges the generations and ties the new champ’s story to Rocky’s legacy.

RT editor Jacqueline Coley sat down with director Steven Caple Jr. and stars Michael B. Jordan, Tessa Thompson, Dolph Lundgren, and Florian Munteanu to chat about the new film; talk about the growth of Adonis, Bianca, and their relationship; explain how difficult a language Russian is; and discuss training montages and music collaborations. Also, we learn about Sylvester Stallone’s on-set shenanigans.

Creed II opens in theaters on November 21.
