Sylvester Stallone has announced that Romanian boxer Florian “Big Nasty” Munteanu has been cast in the role of Ivan Drago's son in Creed 2. As you can see... this guy is a monster! He's 6'4", and 245 pounds of intimidation.
When we first learned that Dolph Lundgren would be reprising his role of Ivan Drago, fans immediately speculated that the film would also introduce his son and that his son would fight Michael B. Jordan’s Adonis Creed. We now we know for a fact that we are going to see Creed and Drago step into the ring and fight.
This is going to make for a very interesting story dynamic because, as you know, Ivan Drago killed Adonis Creed's dad Apollo. I thought the first Creed film was great and I'm looking forward to seeing this sequel and how this next chapter of Creed's story plays out.
Creed 2 will be directed by Steven Caple Jr., who is best known for directing 2016’s skateboarding drama The Land. The script for the film comes from Stallone and Luke Cage showrunner and writer Cheo Hodari Coker. Production will begin in Philadelphia in March, and the movie will be released on November 21, 2018.
