Adonis Creed is returning to the ring and Michael B. Jordan is taking a seat in the director’s chair for 'Creed III.'
After a few years away from the ring, Adonis "Donnie" Creed is enjoying the family and life he’s built for himself. But when his childhood best friend — and former boxing prodigy — reaches out after being released from prison, the heavyweight boxing champion’s peace becomes threatened by the reminder from his past.
Tessa Thompson and Phylicia Rashad returns alongside Creed franchise newcomer Jonathan Majors in Jordan's directorial debut. When asked during a private trailer screening why he decided to take over the reins for the third film, Jordan told journalists that he felt it was "the perfect time" after his extensive experience in various roles throughout "over 20 years" in the industry. While the Rocky Balboa character won't be returning on screen, Sylvester Stallone will remain a producer on the creed film.
"I finally got to this place in my career where I wanted to tell a story and not just be in front of the camera, not just execute somebody else's vision," he explained. "And having a character that I've played twice before, you know, it's been seven, eight years living with this guy. So to be able to tell a story of where I believe Adonis is at, and also at 35 years old, I had a lot to say as a young Black man [about] my life experiences and how I could actually share a piece of myself with the world through these characters and through this story."
