Fans react as Michael B. Jordan takes centre stage in new Creed II trailer

The sequel to the 2015 Rocky spin-off is out in November.

MGM have released a first look at a determined Michael B. Jordan in Creed II.

Tessa Thompson stars alongside Sylvester Stallone and Jordan in the Steven Caple Jr-directed sports drama, out this Autumn.

The sequel to the Rocky spin-off comes three years after the first film, directed by Ryan Coogler.

The intense two-minute trailer shows Apollo Creed’s son Adonis training tirelessly in preparation for the fight of his life.

Mentored by Rocky Balboa, Creed will face Ivan Drago’s son in the ring more than thirty years after Drago killed Apollo during a match.

Set to Kendrick Lamar track DNA, the clip had fans riled up and ready to watch.
