First Set Photo From Sylvester Stallone’s “Creed”

Sunday afternoon Sylvester Stallone gave fans of his Instagram account the first glimpse of Creed. This will be the seventh film in the Rocky franchise and has a release date of November 25, 2015.

Creed, helmed by Fruitvale Station director Ryan Coogler, is a spin-off from Stallone’s own legendary Rocky series focusing on the son of former world heavyweight champ Apollo Creed, Adonis Johnson. Born after his father’s death (and despite the circumstances of Apollo’s passing) Adonis heads to Philadelphia to be trained by his father’s best friend: Rocky Balboa (who is described as currently “battling an opponent more deadly than any he faced in the ring”).

Get ready to go for it!
