New Delhi: Michael B. Jordan is returning to the big screen as Adonis Creed in the upcoming sequel to the Rocky spinoff, ‘Creed 2,’ trying to rewrite the history.

The movie also stars Sylvester Stallone and Tessa Thompson.

Fresh from his fight, the trailer shows that Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) is all set to face his next challenger, Viktor Drago. Viktor is the son of Ivan Drago who killed Adonis’ father in an exhibition match 30 years ago.
