Rocky vs. Creed

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Perhaps the only feat more difficult than conquering the steps of the picturesque Philadelphia Museum of Art is writing a film worthy of carrying on Rocky’s legacy. Creed co-writer Aaron Covington will compare the two stories, discuss how the original informed this spin-off, and what it was like to work alongside writer/actor Sylvester Stallone and director Ryan Coogler.

THIS PANEL HAS EXTENDED TIME AND WILL END AT 12:15PM.
Those who enrolled in the advance sign-up for this session are required to show up 15 minutes early and will be admitted first. The panel will then open to remaining Badge holders.
