Four years have passed since it was released. creed II in theaters and the franchise derived from the saga of Rocky presented the first posters with its protagonist Michael B Jordan, who will not only put on his boxing gloves again, but will also sit in the director’s chair. The rival, in this case, will be the rising figure Jonathan Majors. The release date will be March 2, 2023.
It was through two images shared by Prime Video Y MGM Studios (company that produces the film) that it was officially announced that the third feature film in the franchise already has a release date, although it had originally been announced that this project would see the light of day in November of this year.
The two images shown do not give much detail of the plot, since while in one of the photos B. Jordan is seen in the corner of a ring, in the other he appears Jonathan Majorswho will give life to Damien Anderson, in the same position, both showing challengers and prepared for the fight in fiction and at the box office.
The battle on this occasion will not be easy for this team, since for the third installment, there have been some important changes, the most significant of which is the departure of Sylvester Stallonewho will no longer be like Rocky Balboa. Who was the protagonist of the first two films and who in both believe he served as Adonis’s mentor and trainer.
Another big change is that this time around, Michael B. Jordan will not only be returning to play the title character and produce the film, but he’ll also be in the director’s chair for the first time, though Ryan Coogler will still be involved as an executive producer. For his part, Ludwig Göransson (The Mandalorian) will also not be composing the score again after working on the first two films, and this time it will be the co-composer of boba fett book (2022), Joseph Shirley, who will assume this task.
Jordan is ready to show the world that he too can direct a movie and Creed III (2023) will be that opportunity, although it has also been announced that the film will be the conclusion of this trilogy that began in 2015 and that managed to introduce a new iconic name to the franchise with Adonis Creed (B. Jordan), the new hero of the franchise and son of Rocky’s old rival and close friend, apollo creed (Carl Weathers).
So far the details of the plot are scarce, the last time Adonis was seen in Creed II (2018), he won a fight with Viktor Drago, ending a rivalry of decades, which came from the father of Viktor , Ivan Drago, killed Adonis’s own father, in Rocky IV (1985). At the end of the previous feature film all the characters have a somewhat happy ending. Adonis makes peace with his family’s legacy, Rocky is able to reconnect with his estranged family, and even Ivan and Viktor decide to put this petty rivalry aside and focus on building a better father relationship.
This has led many critics and specialists to believe that the third part of the story will focus more on the family life of the protagonist, that is, that Adonis will be seen to grow even more to become a better father for his daughter and not follow in the footsteps of other father figures in this franchise, who have lost connection with their own children.
Although Stallone did not return as Rockywho will be back is the actress Tessa Thompson (Thor: Love and Thunder) as Creed’s wife, Bianca Creed, as well as Phylicia Rashad (Soul) like her mother Mary Anne. The cast is completed by Selanis Leyva (Spider-Man: Homecoming), Spence Moore II (We Are Who We Are) and Thaddeus J. Mixson (South of Heaven).
Also returning are the two main boxers Adonis fought in the previous two movies, both real-life boxing athletes Tony “Bomber” Bellew (believe) as “Pretty” Ricky Conlan from the first film and Florian Munteanu (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings) as Viktor Drago from the second.
Other well-known real-life boxing figures will also be a part of the film, including the legendary cutman Jacob “Stitch” Duran who also returns from the previous two films, as well as featuring the world boxing champion Canelo Alvarez as Saul, making his acting debut.
creed II will feature cinematographer Kramer Morgenthau (The Many Saints of Newark) and costume designer Lizz Wolf (Jupiter’s Legacy) and the rest of the team is rounded out by editor Tyler Nelson (batman), production designer Jahmin Assa (mid90s) and casting director Alexa L. Fogel (Judas and the Black Messiah).
