Romanian boxer Florian Munteanu has joined Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone in “Creed 2,” sources confirmed to Variety, with production expected to start in spring 2018.
Along with Jordan and Stallone, Munteanu also joins Tessa Thompson, who will also return for the sequel, reprising her role as Bianca.
Munteanu is set to play Ivan Drago’s son. Drago, portrayed by Dolph Lundgren in “Rocky IV”, is the character that killed Apollo Creed, Jordan’s father, in a boxing match. Lundgren is also set to reprise role in “Creed 2.”
While plot details are vague, a match between Jordan and Munteanu’s characters seems highly likely.
