‘Rocky’ Spin-off ‘Creed’ First Look Features Sylvester Stallone Training Michael B. Jordan (Photo)

The boxing drama directed by Ryan Coogler hits theaters on Nov. 25

Sylvester Stallone has given “Rocky” fans the first look at upcoming spin-off “Creed,” starring Michael B. Jordan.

The photo shows Stallone in character as Rocky Balboa training the grandson of his fellow boxing alumnus, Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers), who was permanently knocked out by Russian boxer Ivan Drago during an exhibition match in “Rocky IV.”

“Creed,” which is currently shooting in Philadelphia, is being directed by Ryan Coogler, who caught Hollywood’s eye in 2013 when he wrote and directed “Fruitvale Station.” Jordan played the lead role in the film, which was based on the real-life story of Oscar Grant, who was fatally shot by a BART police officer in Oakland, California, in 2009.

“Creed,” co-starring Phylicia Rashad (“The Cosby Show”) as the young boxer’s grandmother, is set to hit theaters on Nov. 25.
