Creed II will see the return of famous Rocky villain Ivan Drago. Drago is notorious for killing Apollo Creed in the ring in Rocky IV, which had a huge impact on Adonis’ life as seen in the first Creed. This time around, Adonis and Rocky will have to reface the past as they are challenged by Drago and his son, Vitor. The first batch of set photos for the film reveal the Russian father and son together at a familiar Rocky location.

The photos show Dolph Lundgren returning to the franchise alongside newcomer Florian Munteanu.

Rocky fans will recognize this location as the famous “Rocky” steps outside the Philadelphia Museum of Art. This is where we saw Rocky make so many iconic runs throughout the franchise, and it’s even home to the real life Rocky statue as displayed in Rocky III. 

While there’s not much revealed from these photos, this scene likely has Ivan Drago showing his son the legacy of Rocky, so he can rightfully challenge it when fighting Adonis.

Creed II is written by Sylvester Stallone and the directing duties will be handed over from Ryan Coogler to Steven Caple Jr.
