Could Brock Lesnar be joining the cast of Creed 2, the sequel to the 2015 film Creed, a spinoff of the popular Rocky franchise?
In recent days, actor Sylvester Stallone has been teasing big news is coming regarding Creed 2, which is scheduled for a November 21, 2018 release. While plot details about the sequel are still vague, Stallone has hinted the story would revolve around the Ivan Drago character, the boxer who killed Creed’s father Apollo in Rocky IV.
Last week, Stallone posted a photo from Rocky IV (1985) of his Rocky Balboa Character in the ring with Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren) with the caption,
“Get ready the next generation is about to get into the ring!”
On Monday, Stallone posted a Photoshopped image on Instagram on Monday afternoon ofhimself fighting Brock Lesnar with the caption,
“Big challenges come in all shapes and forms!”
Stallone followed up with an announcement that he’s stepping aside as the director for Creed 2 and Steven Caple, Jr. (“The Land”) will be taking over. As for the Lesnar photo he posted and who will be playing Drago’s son, we’ll have to wait and see.
UPDATE: Stallone has since updated this post to confirm that “this is just for entertainment, Drago’s son will be played by a new unknown.”
