Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone On The Set Of ‘Rocky’ Spinoff “Creed” [Photos]


Actor Michael B. Jordan worked hard to sculpt his physique for his latest role.

In the Rocky spinoff, Creed, Jordan plays Adonis, the son of Rocky Balboa’s former friend and foe Apollo Creed, who was tragically beaten to death by a Russian man/possible robot in Rocky IV.

Stallone posted the first official image of the movie on Instagram yesterday, showing himself and Michael B. side-by-side in the ring as Adonis trains to live up to Apollo’s legacy. Creed will be Stallone’s seventh time playing Rocky, his first appearance in nine years since 2006’s Rocky Balboa, and it’s set to hit theaters on November 25. 

To get ready for the role, Jordan worked with celebrity trainer Corey Calliet.
