Bummer: Adonis NOT Fighting Drago?

It has been all over the place for a while that Adonis Creed would take on the man who killed his father in the ring in Creed II.  Dolph Lundgren is officially in the movie, so it looked like this was true.  Especially since Sylvester Stallone was so old in Rocky Balboa, and fought, it looked possible.

Well apparently not, according to this Finnish news source.

They’re looking for a real boxer to play Drago’s son.  They want a 20-25 year old blonde male, at around 6’3.

But who knows, maybe there will be a Drago/Creed fight.  Perhaps early in the movie?  With Drago’s son seeking a follow up?  But that seems unlikely.  It looks like Drago will be in his son’s corner and Rocky in Creed’s corner.

    Well it was kinda obvious he wasn’t going to fight Drago. I don’t know why everyone wanted it to happen so badly. I also don’t want Adonis to fight Drago’s son. It makes no sense whatsoever.

      Since Dolph is in such good condition for his age, I kinda hoped he was going to fight Drago, especially since the caricature super villain theme might be toned down with the age angle.

      But fighting his son seems odd. Maybe Dolph might even be limited to an extended cameo, a scuffle with Balboa at the weigh-in.

        I’m definitely hoping for some sort of scuffle between Rocky and Drago as it would be amazing.

        Adonis fighting his son or even Drago makes no sense as Rocky has already taken his revenge for Apollo.

        I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

          I didn’t realize Adonis fighting Drago was even a rumor. Thought it was always expected to be the two sons climbing into the ring.

            It’s been a rumour for quite a while and it felt like people just assumed that would be the story. I’m a huge Rocky fan but I felt like I was the only one who didn’t want Creed vs Drago/Drago Jr. story as we had the revenge story already.

    “Rocky IV” is my favorite “fight” movie.
    People around me are like “man you must be excited” but the truth of the matter is that I’m not.

    “Creed” & “Rocky IV” are miles & oceans apart in tone. My cynicism, my skepticism and my love for “Rocky IV” will not allow me allow me to be hopeful about this sequel.

    You know the “Creed” soundtrack will be nothing like this

      Sadly, that’s how I feel about most of these rumored nostalgia projects. There’s just no way you’re going to be able to do justice to Rocky IV in 2017. (Mainly because there’s not enough awesome left.)

      Rocky 4 is hands down my favourite Rocky is fucking awesome and shits all over Creed which was a rip off of that Tom Hardy film Warrior but I’m hopeful that with Sly writing and directing and starring and Dolph returning also that it could be good

        If they’re going to do it it might as well be good but I’m still not optimistic.
        I’ve seen “Creed” already a couple of more times and I still think that Rocky Balboa should’ve gotten the credit and the praise that “Creed” got.
        I love “Warrior” like you and I think it’s a very underrated movie with a fantastic score.

    Still to this day…
    Every time a friend of mine gets beaten to death by a Russian,
    I get in my car and play this and reminisce about the great times we had

    “They want a 20-25 year old blonde male, at around 6’3.”
    Too old & too tall for Kevin Spacey I guess

        There is something about these hot chicks we used to fancy when we were young. They are pass their “youthful prime”, however we must still fulfill that youth hormone driven fantasy.
        Dont get me wrong, some of them have aged extremely well.

        Somebody please let Belinda Carlisle from the Go-Gos I still want her😁

    I never expected him to fight Drago himself. I always assumed it would be against Drago’s son, or protégé.
