Creed II finally wrapped up filming last week and yet we really don’t know too much about the plot of the latest chapter of the Rocky franchise. However, one of the movie’s writers revealed some intriguing tidbits about the upcoming movie and how the plot is centered around the relationships between sons and fathers.

Cheo Hodari Coker has been a writer and executive producer for a number of high-profile entertainment properties such as Luke Cage, Ray Donovan, NCIS: Los Angeles, Southland, Almost Human, Notorious, and the upcoming M.A.S.K. movie. Coker is also the co-writer for Creed II along with Sylvester Stallone. Entertainment website SlashFilm interviewed Coker about the new Creed II movie and the writer provided some insight into the direction of the latest film in the Rocky Balboa universe.

We know that the two main fighters in the movie are Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan), son of Apollo Creed and Ivan Drago’s son, played by Florian Munteanu (you can read more about him HERE). The movie will focus on the emotional aspects of how both young men are still haunted by the legacies of their fathers.
