Los Angeles: Veteran action star Sylvester Stallone has teased that ‘Creed 2’ could be inspired by 'Rocky I’.

The 70-year-old actor shared a photoshopped movie poster in which Apollo Creed's son Adonis Creed (Michael B Jordan) from the 2015 title stands toe-to-toe with his father's biggest opponent and killer Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren), who featured in the 1985 film, on Instagram and vowed that ‘history will always repeat itself’.

‘Here's a chance to stretch your imagination ... History will always repeat itself in one for or another, just got to be ready!...Sins of the Father.... #creed2 # agentnickyc (siC), Stallone captioned the photo.

Stallone reprised his role as Rocky Balboa when the Rocky franchise was rebooted two years ago and the poster suggests that Drago could play a part in the plot of the 'Creed' sequel.

The Ryan Coogler directed movie revolved around Apollo's son Adonis and his quest to follow in his father's footsteps to become a professional boxer.

Rocky is persuaded to train Adonis and leads him to victory in a fight against Ricky Conlan.
