‘Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan) never knew his famous father, boxing champion Apollo Creed, who died before Adonis was born. However, boxing is in his blood, so he seeks out Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) and asks the retired champ to be his trainer. Rocky sees much of Apollo in Adonis, and agrees to mentor him, even as he battles an opponent deadlier than any in the ring. With Rocky’s help, Adonis soon gets a title shot, but whether he has the true heart of a fighter remains to be seen.’
Well it appears that the movie is more up front about its sequel-lite status in Europe, in Germany at least, where the movie is called ‘Creed: Rocky’s Legacy’. I think they’ll probably go for a trilogy here, so what will they call the third movie, Rocky IX?!
