Creed II is coming to theaters later this month, and the boxing sequel sure has some large personalities on board.
In a new featurette posted by the official Creed II Twitter account, we get a better look at who Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) will be facing off against, Viktor Drago (Florian “Big Nasty” Munteanu).
The fight – the pain – the work – the gain. Florian ‘@big9nasty‘ Munteanu is Viktor Drago. Get tickets to see him in the ring this Thanksgiving 🔥#Creed2: https://t.co/aZAOQe2Bq1 pic.twitter.com/CyGYojuW1M

Here’s what MGM has to say about the film:
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.
Creed II stars Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson, Wood Harris, Russell Hornsby, Florian “Big Nasty” Munteanu, Andre Ward, Phylicia Rashad, and the return of Dolph Lundgren as Ivan Drago. Steven Caple Jr. is directing.
Creed II is set to hit theaters on November 21st 2018.
