The first photos of Sylvester Stallone and actor Michael B. Jordan in character as Rocky Balboa and Adonis Creed have surfaced as the actors shot scenes outside Philadelphia’s Victor Cafe, temporarily dressed as Adrian’s Restaurant.
Rocky’s white van, first seen in Rocky Balboa, emblazoned with the familiar green oval Adrian’s Restaurant logo is visible in this scene with its rear doors open.
Sylvester Stallone is wearing the same style of clothing used in ‘Rocky Balboa’ ten years ago including his military style field jacket and fedora hat. Michael B. Jordan – who’s in the spotlight as Adonis Johnson – is dressed in a similar navy blue color palette including a hoodie sweatshirt with a zip up vest and muted blue cold weather wool cap much like Rocky Balboa wore during his Philadelphia training scenes in the original ‘Rocky’.
Scenes were shot around a Philadelphia neighborhood showing Michael B. Jordan jogging in this costume as his character seemingly trains for his match against opponent “Pretty” Ricky Porter, played by real-life English boxer Tony Bellew.
