The Italian Stallion is back in the ring… sort of!
Sylvester Stallone released the first image from his upcoming Rocky spin-off Creed!
The Expendables actor posted a picture on his Instagram of him and co-star Michael B. Jordan in a boxing ring, complete with the caption:
"Get ready to go for it!"
The movie follows Jordan's character Adonis Creed, who is the grandson of former heavyweight champion Apollo. After Adonis realizes he has his grandfather's natural boxing talent, he tracks down Sly's famous character Rocky Balboa to become his trainer!

This makes sense, as in the photo Rocky looks like he's teaching Adonis one of his signature jabs!
We're pretty excited for this spin-off of the hit boxing franchise. Apollo was Rocky's rival in the first two films, so this story should definitely bring the series in full circle.
Are U planning on seeing Creed when it hits theaters this November?
