In the final instalment of the Creed series, Michael B. Jordan will reprise his role as the title character.
The third instalment, for which Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman is adapting the screenplay written by Keenan Coogler and Zach Baylin (who also penned Will Smith’s Oscar-winning King Richard), will mark Boseman’s directorial debut.
Jordan will take up directing duties from Ryan Coogler and Steven Caple Jr., and he will also be involved in producing the film.

Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) trains Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan), the son of Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers), Rocky’s longtime competitor and close friend.
In addition to Tessa Thompson’s comeback from the last film, Lovecraft County and Loki star, Jonathan Majors has been cast as Adonis’ new boxing opponent Anderson Dame in the third instalment. Stallone has recently stated that he will not reprise his role as Rocky.
Below, you’ll find all the information we have about Creed III at this time.
Creed 3 Plot
Training and mentoring by Rocky Bilbao was the focus of Creed, and Adonis’s subsequent victory over Viktor Drago put an end to his family’s feud with the Dragos, whose patriarch Ivan killed Apollo Creed in Rocky IV.
Adonis’s daughter and his upcoming fight with new adversary Damien Anderson are set to take centre stage in the upcoming film.
Creed 3 Cast
Anderson Dame, Adonis’s new boxing opponent, is played by Jonathan Majors.
Earlier this year, Stallone’s representative told The Hollywood Reporter that the actor will not be participating in the next Rocky Balboa film for MGM. The explanation ended there.
Michael B. Jordan, who has confirmed to Deadline that he will make his directorial debut with the upcoming Creed 3, said: “I’ve always wanted to get into directing, but I knew the time wasn’t right until recently.
“Creed III represents a turning point in my life, a time when I finally feel like I know who I am when I have some control over my own story, when I have grown as a person and as a filmmaker, and when I have had the opportunity to learn from greats like Ryan Coogler, Denzel Washington, and other directors whose work I admire.
Creed 3 Release Date
Once scheduled for a November 2022 debut, Creed III has been pushed back to March 3, 2023.
