It's time to get back in the ring.
MGM has released a "Creed II" featurette, and it showcases the man who will challenge Adonis "Donnie" Creed (Michael B. Jordan). Based on what we've seen, he's a beast, but that should come as no surprise. Donnie's new rival is none other than Viktor Drago (Florian Munteanu), the son of the man who killed his father in "Rocky IV."
Munteanu, a real-life boxer, certainly looks like the real deal. The video shares some facts that would intimidate most opponents, like how he's 6-foot-4, 245 lbs, and has a 79-inch reach. Plus, he makes training look like it's nothing.
As you can see, Viktor is a very lean, mean fighting machine. He's not messing around, and obviously Donnie won't be, either. Jordan has opened up about what the storyline means for the movie and how "really, it's about life," as he told the Toronto Sun in September.
We'll see how it all goes down when "Creed II" hits theaters on Nov. 21.
