With little known about Sylvester Stallone‘s upcoming film Creed, the people of the world wide web have been calling it Rocky 7. It’s a fair point, Stallone is definitely playing Rocky Balboa in it after all. The first trailer released a few months ago introduced us to the main character Adonis Johnson Creed who is the son of Rocky’s rival,Apollo. It focused on the fact that Johnson never really knew his father and gave us our first glimpse at Michael B. Jordan (Fruitville Station) playing him.
But that was basically it, we didn’t have a clue where dear old Balboa fitted in… until now.
A few days ago a new trailer was released showing Rocky as Creed’s trainer. It showed a relationship being forged between them and a want for Balboa to pass his legacy and wisdom onto someone else. Sure, it probably could be conceded as Rocky 7 where the torch is passed on to a new champion in the making but I am hoping for more than this. It looks promising with the hope of a new star stepping forward and proving himself away from his trainer and father’s name but only time will tell.
Creed is released November 2015
