Creed 3 is almost in theatres.

Michael B. Jordan (in his feature-directing debut) is the director and star of the 2023 American sports drama film Creed III, which is based on a screenplay by Ryan Coogler and Zach Baylin.

The movie is the third in the Creed series, the follow-up to Creed II (2018), and the ninth overall in the Rocky movie franchise. Tessa Thompson, Jonathan Majors, Wood Harris, Florian Munteanu, and Phylicia Rashad are all featured in it. Sylvester Stallone no longer plays Rocky Balboa in this movie, though he still works as a producer.

On February 9, 2023, Creed III held its world premiere in Mexico City. On March 3, 2023, United Artists Releasing and Warner Bros. Pictures are expected to release the film domestically. Critics gave the movie mainly favourable reviews.

In reaction to the idea that Deontay Wilder would portray the son of Clubber Lang in a prospective Creed II (2018) sequel, Sylvester Stallone and Michael B. Jordan both showed interest in having such a figure appear in the story of the following chapter in December 2018. Jordan stated that Creed III was formally under active development in September of this year.

Plot of Creed III

Adonis "Donnie" Creed is succeeding in both his boxing career and family life following the events of Creed II (2018). Damian "Dame" Anderson, a boyhood friend and former boxing prodigy, makes a comeback after serving a lengthy prison sentence, and he is anxious to show that he merits a chance to compete.

The confrontation between the two ex-friends is more than just a brawl. Donnie must fight Dame, a fighter with nothing to lose, in order to settle the score, risking his future in the process.
