Creed III final trailer teases explosive fight between Adonis and Damian

The final trailer for Creed III highlights the impending showdown between Adonis Creed (Black Panther’s Michael B. Jordan) and Damian Anderson (Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’s Jonathan Majors). The brothers-turned-enemies will settle their long-standing score in the ring in what promises to be an explosive fight.

“When Dame came back, the past came back too,” Adonis says to a concerned Bianca (Thor: Love and Thunder’s Tessa Thompson) in the trailer. Damian and Adonis were like brothers growing up until an encounter with the police changed their lives. Damian was forced to serve a lengthy prison sentence while Adonis became a boxing world champion. Now a free man, Damian is going after Adonis and the life he believes Creed stole from him. Faced with few options, Adonis is forced out of retirement to settle his score with Damian inside the ring.

CREED III | Final Trailer

Creed III marks the feature directorial debut of Jordan, who reprised Adonis for the third time in the franchise. Keenan Coogler (Space Jam: A New Legacy) and Zachary Baylin (King Richard) penned the script from a story by Ryan Coogler (Black Panther: Wakanda Forever). Reprising their roles from the previous Creed films include Wood Harris (The Wire) as Tony “Little Duke” Evers, Florian Munteanu (The Contractor) as Viktor Drago, Tony Bellew (Creed) as “Pretty” Ricky Conlan, and Phylicia Rashad (The Cosby Show) as Mary Anne Creed.

Creed III will be the first film in the franchise without Sylvester Stallone (Tulsa King), who has appeared as Rocky Balboa in every Rocky and Creed film up to this point.

The verdict is in: Creed is a hit with both audiences and critics -- not to mention that it has already hauled in $115 million against a budget of just $35 million. With that said, it was always a pretty safe bet that this film would be getting a sequel.

According to Variety, a follow-up is already planned, and Sylvester Stallone has already discussed a few ideas with director Ryan Coogler.

Creed’s Michael B. Jordan aims to create his own role by co-writing comic book series
creed 2 release date michael b jordan

Simply starring in comic book-based films apparently isn't enough of a challenge for Michael B. Jordan. The actor is joining forces with writer Nathan Edmonson to co-write a new action spy comic series called North, reports THR. The goal is to later bring the story to screen in the future, with Jordan starring in the film version.

North, which will be illustrated by Denys Cowan and Bill Sienkiewicz, will center on a soldier whose mind is modified after being recruited to join a top-secret organization. The group will turn on him, but they'll find he becomes a bigger threat than they imagined. The basic plot has elements that we've seen before, but it could certainly be done in an interesting way.

Amid all of the reboots, remakes, and sequels in the works, the buzz surrounding the upcoming Rocky spinoff movie Creed has been relatively low-key, but the arrival of the first trailer for the film might be all the hype necessary to have audiences looking out for the movie later this year.

Set an unspecified number of years after the events of the previous Rocky films, Creed stars Michael B. Jordan (Fantastic Four) as the son of Apollo Creed, the former heavyweight champion boxer played by Carl Weathers in the first four Rocky movies. The film features the return of Sylvester Stallone as the iconic, never-stay-down southpaw Rocky Balboa, who agrees to train the son of his former rival and closest friend in order to pass along the lessons that made his father -- and Rocky himself -- into true champions.
