Creed trailer proves Apollo was the best part of Rocky

Everyone's favorite Rocky movie is either Rocky or Rocky IV. Rocky II and Rocky III are pretty good. Rocky V was a mistake. Rocky Balboa was fine. There seems to be a clear correlation between that amount of Apollo Creed in a Rocky film and the success of said film. That is why I was so excited to see this trailer.

Granted this is a film about Apollo's son and Apollo almost certainly isn't in it because [Spoiler Alert] he gets boxed to death in Rocky IV but still. There is something special about the prospect of seeing more Apollo Creed. Hopefully at some point young Creed learns the value of showmanship and maybe we can even get a throwback to this classic scene. 

A man can dream.
