When we last saw Adonis, he had just defeated Viktor Drago, putting an end to their long-standing rivalry since Apollo Creed, Adonis’ own father, was murdered in Rocky IV by Viktor’s father, Ivan Drago (1985). Almost all of the characters have somewhat happy endings. Rocky can reconcile with his estranged family, Adonis accepts his family’s legacy, and even Ivan and Viktor resolve to set aside their small-minded rivalry to forge a healthy father-son bond.

Adonis’ continued development as a better father to his daughter and his resolve to avoid following other parental figures in this series who lost touch with their own children will likely be the main themes of the next movie.
