Michael B. Jordan is kind of one of Hollywood's it-men right about now, with The Fantastic Four on the horizon and a strong resume already that has proved his versatility as an actor. Next up is Creed, which should be just about as awesome as you would expect a Rocky spin-off to be.
This is the synopsis for the film, which will feature (and be produced by) Jordan's character's "out of the game" mentor Sylvester Stallone.
Despite his insistence that he is out of the fight game for good, Rocky sees in Adonis the strength and determination he had known in Apollo—the fierce rival who became his closest friend. Agreeing to take him on, Rocky trains the young fighter, even as the former champ is battling an opponent more deadly than any he faced in the ring.
With Rocky in his corner, it isn’t long before Adonis gets his own shot at the title…but can he develop not only the drive but also the heart of a true fighter, in time to get into the ring?
Here's a new photo from the film that shows an absolutely shredded Michael B. Jordan (Adonis Johnson) training with Stallone (Rocky Balboa).
I can dig it.
Creed opens in theaters on November 25, 2015
