Creed II’s Dolph Lundgren, Florian Munteanu, The Dragos Talk Family Ties

The Drago saga continues in Creed II.

“If he dies, he dies.”

The iconic words spoken by Dolph Lundgren three decades ago effuse a vitriol that could only be satiated with a fight to the death. As the notorious Ivan Drago in Rocky IV, both he and the character became the definition of scripted evil.

After killing Apollo Creed, Rocky avenged his death by defeating Drago and pushing the latter into the background of culture. But in Creed II, Drago returns, this time with his son, Viktor.
