The latest trailer for the forthcoming installment of the Rocky franchise reveals more of the involvement of Ivan Drago.
Played by Dolph Lundgren, Drago is famed for his tragic fight with Apollo Creed but hasn’t been seen on screens since 1985.
Lundgren returns in the sequel to the 2015 hit, in which Adonis Creed battled Ricky Conlan, portrayed by former world champion Tony Bellew.
Drago’s son, Viktor will face the main character in the ring, chillingly played by real-life fighter Florina Munteanu.

Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life.
Facing an opponent with ties to his family’s past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what’s worth fighting for, and discover that nothing’s more important than family.
Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can’t escape your history.
