Sylvester Stallone took to Instagram on Sunday to give the world its first glimpse at the latest installment in the Rocky saga – and its new boxer protagonist.

Creed tells the story of Stallone’s Rocky Balboa training a new boxer played by Michael B. Jordan: Adonis Creed. He’s the son of Rocky’s late boxing rival Apollo Creed, who was played in the first four Rocky movies by Carl Weathers. Stallone’s photo shows him, as Balboa, training Jordan’s character, along with the caption “Get ready to go for it!”

In addition to Stallone, 68, and Jordan, 28, the film stars Phylicia Rashad and Tessa Thompson. It’s currently being filmed on location in Philadelphia, and is scheduled for release on Nov. 25.
