There will be many releases in 2023, some of which are already set to become blockbuster hits, and one of those movies includes Creed III. If you have watched this franchise’s first two installments of this franchise, then you know that something brilliant is in store for you, but this is only the beginning.
Ryan Coogler and Steven Caple Jr. directed the first and second Creed movies. Still, this time, the director’s chair will be occupied by Michael B. Jordan himself. If there is anyone who can perfect Creed III, it is probably the man who plays the role of Adonis Creed himself. Creed III will be Michael B. Jordan’s directorial debut, and we can’t wait to see how he continues to shape this popular franchise.
Creed 3 is set to conclude the trilogy, with Ryan Coogler still involved as a producer. For those of you who don’t recognize Coogler, he is the mind and talent behind Blank Panther: Wakanda Forever, so you just know that Creed III will be a success amongst its existing fans.
It isn’t long before you will be able to watch Creed III, so ahead of its release, here is everything you need to know about the upcoming movie, from the plot to the cast to the release date and more:

What Is The Plot of Creed III?
Before we dive into any significant details about the storyline of Creed 3, let’s take a look at the official synopsis, which will give us a good overview of what we can expect from the movie:
“After dominating the boxing world, Adonis Creed has thrived in his career and family life. When a childhood friend and former boxing prodigy, Damian, resurfaces after serving a long sentence in prison, he is eager to prove that he deserves his shot in the ring. The face-off between former friends is more than just a fight. To settle the score, Adonis must put his future on the line to battle Damian – a fighter with nothing to lose.”
It is no secret that Adonis Creed has been successful in both his professional career and personal life, but how long can he possibly thrive in both places? Things are about to change for Adonis Creed after someone from his past makes a comeback.
According to sources, Creed 3 will take place a few years later, so there will be a little time skip, but it shouldn’t impact the storyline too drastically. The time skip is probably just to show that Adonis has settled into his life, but a storm is brewing.
Brothers turned enemies is the official tagline for Creed 3, and it makes sense because while Donnie went on to live his dream life, Damian ended up in jail, feeling robbed of a career he deserved.
Both of them will settle their fights in the ring, but can we hope for a happy ending in Creed 3? Or will this fight be the downfall of Adonis Creed?
The Cast of Creed III
Without a doubt, the star of Creed III will be Michael B. Jordan, who is reprising his role as Adonis Creed. As we mentioned before, Jordan isn’t just starring in Creed III but also directing it, so the spotlight will genuinely be on him the entire time.
For most fans, this will come as a big disappointment, but Sylvester Stallone will not be returning to Creed III as Rocky Balboa. Stallone has officially bowed out of the franchise, and while we aren’t thrilled about this news, we are still looking forward to seeing the cast members return for Creed III.
Tessa Thompson will be reprising her role as Bianca Creed, aka Adonis’s wife. Phylicia Rashad will join her as Mary Anne Creed and Mila Davis-Kent, who will be playing the role of Amara, Adonis, and Bianca’s daughter.
Florian Munteanu and Wood Harris will also be returning for Creed III, so some familiar faces will be around. Rest assured, Jordan has told the fans that even though Sylvester Stallone won’t be a part of Creed III, his presence will still be felt.
While we are thrilled about seeing all these cast members return for Creed III, we are most looking forward to Damian, who will be the brother turned into an enemy and will be played by none other than Jonathan Majors, who has currently taken over the internet. Majors has been around for a while, but he has most recently gained popularity by playing the role of Kang in Loki and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. 2023 is an excellent year for Majors, and Creed III will be one of his biggest movies yet.

We know that Creed III has been one of the most anticipated movies of 2023, so the good news is that you won’t have to wait long for its release.
