Creed III is in the works. But it’s easy to forget that fans of Rocky were pleasantly delighted by the franchise’s most recent spin-off, Creed. The 2015 film starring Michael B Jordan as the titular teenage boxer received positive reviews from reviewers and audiences, and did well at the box office.
Creed’s sequel, Creed II, was predictable, given that the original Creed franchise consisted of six films. The fact that it was set up as the final chapter of Rocky’s tale, with the mantle passed on to Adonis Creed himself, was shocking.
That has now been confirmed, with Sylvester Stallone stating that he would not reprise his part in the third Creed film, also named Creed III, as expected. Here’s everything we know thus far about the flick.
