Episode 30: Creed II

Creed II dragos

2018 — The Year of Dolph. Or the “Lundgrenaissance.” On this month’s episode, we’re discussing the next installment in the Rocky franchise, Creed II!  While this is a giant leap ahead in the filmography of Dolph, there’s no denying the momentous year that Lundgren has been having!  And now is the time to talk about it! In this sequel to 2015’s smash hit, Creed, Lundgren returns to the role that initially made him a star 33 years ago — Ivan Drago!  Joining me once again for this inevitable discussion is Craig Cohen of the SlyCast! What is it about this franchise and these characters who continue to enthrall so many for over 40 years?  How was director Stephen Caple and everyone involved able to take the cartoon that is Rocky IV and ground it into the real world of Creed?  Is Lundgren’s Ivan Drago truly a villain?  Where can this series go should it decide to continue?  And where would we like to see Lundgren’s and Stallone’s careers go at this point?

Listen in as the hosts of the Stallone podcast and the Lundgren podcast join forces once again and BREAK down Creed II currently in theaters!
