The first image from the set of "Rocky" spinoff "Creed" is here, courtesy of Sylvester Stallone.
The photo, which Stallone shared on Instagram, features the actor alongside "Creed" star Michael B. Jordan, who plays Adonis Johnson, the son of the late "Rocky" favorite Apollo Creed. "Creed" focuses on Adonis's quest to become a heavyweight champion, just like the father who died before he was born.
In "Creed," Adonis travels to Philadelphia to seek out Rocky for guidance and help training. That's purportedly what's happening in the photo that Stallone shared, though we question Rocky's choice to wear a fedora in the ring.
Per Coming Soon, "'Creed' also stars Tessa Thompson ('Selma,' 'Dear White People') as Bianca, a local singer-songwriter who becomes involved with Adonis; Phylicia Rashad (Lifetime's 'Steel Magnolias') as Mary Anne Creed, Apollo's widow; and English pro boxer and former three-time ABA Heavyweight Champion Anthony Bellew as boxing champ "Pretty" Ricky Conlan."
"Creed," directed by Ryan Coogler ("Fruitvale Station") and co-written by Coogler and Aaron Covington, is due in theaters on November 25.
