With Creed, Michael B. Jordan came out swinging in 2016 and snatched the gloves away from a legendary fighter to take aim at a tale we weren’t even aware we needed. Adonis Creed, the son of Apollo, a companion of Rocky Balboa, was first introduced to us in the drama film directed by Oscar-nominated Ryan Coogler.
He also discussed the history of the Creed family. By departing from the previous films in the series, the sports movie inspired a fresh love for the series. It went on to receive a sequel, and now a third installment is about to enter the fray.
With the Italian Stallion no longer by his side, Michael B. Jordan is now ready to take on a new task. In addition to playing Adonis once more, he will also make his directing debut. So what can we anticipate from his first decision-making experience? Let’s ring the bell now and give you the specifics of the Creed season 3 release date.
Creed III Release Date
The third installment of the Adonis Creed story, Creed III, was reportedly slated to arrive in theaters in November 2022; however, it has now been revealed that the film will now be released on March 3, 2023. Currently, Creed III is anticipated to make its theatrical debut, similar to the first two movies.

The most likely option for Creed III’s online home appears to be Amazon Video, considering that it recently paid a multi-billion dollar price for Rocky series owner MGM.
Story of Creed III
The Creed movie series has so far been heavily influenced by the Rocky films, from Donnie’s friendship with Rocky Balboa and his efforts to uphold the family reputation to his coming face-to-face with his father’s demise during the Dragos fight.
However, it appears that the third installment will further depart from the core of the original series by delving into Donnie’s past without the Creeds, Dragos, and Balboas. Following is Creed III’s official plot summary: “Adonis Creed has been succeeding in his career and personal life after ruling the boxing world.
In order to earn his chance in the ring, Damian, a boyhood friend, and previous boxing prodigy must first show that he is worthy of doing so. It’s more than simply a battle that the two ex-friends are having. Damian is a boxer who has nothing to lose, therefore Adonis must fight him to settle the score and risk his future.”
According to Jordan, the main themes of this project include returning home, paying off debts, and accountability. The director instructed the audience, “You have to confront your past and discover who you truly are.” I believe that this is a topic that is covered in the film. Everyone should feel like they can relate to something in the story I wrote, I desired that.
How does he convey a relatable, all-encompassing tale? Dwelling on his own experiences, he said, “I had a lot to say as a young man, as a young Black man, [about] my life experiences and how I could truly share a piece of myself with the world via these characters and through this story.”
The dynamics between Adonis and Bianca start to change in addition to the movie’s themes. Jordan started his thought experiment with, what felt like a subliminal dig at his ex-girlfriend Lori Harvey, “I feel like there’s a moment where adults, individuals in a relationship, have to make choices.”
Creed III’s cast
Adonis Creed’s fiancée Bianca Taylor is once again played by Tessa Thompson (Marvel’s Thor), while Adonis’ mother Mary Anne Creed is once again played by Phylicia Rashad. In the role of Viktor Drago, Florian Munteanu is returning.

Creed III Director
The first Creed movie, which was released in 2015, was directed by Ryan Coogler; Creed II was the subject of Steven Caple Jr. Creed III and will be directed by Michael B. Jordan, another newcomer but one who is already quite familiar with the series.
In Creed III, which serves as his directorial debut, Jordan is simultaneously the film’s lead and director. Upon his selection as Creed III’s director, Jordan issued the following statement: “The desire to become a director has always existed, but the time had to be right.
The release of Creed III marks a turning point in my life when I became more confident in who I am, had control over my own narrative, and was maturing both personally and professionally while learning from legends like Denzel Washington, Ryan Coogler, and other esteemed filmmakers I like.
Is There a Creed 3 Trailer?
A Creed 3 trailer has recently been released, and it is amazing. We first see Damian, played by Jonathan Majors, in the trailer. He certainly has a scary-looking exterior! In all honesty, Adonis is more likely to survive this than we are, even though we don’t know how.
