How to Watch ‘Creed III’?: Get ready for another round of the action-packed boxing franchise Creed! This year marks the highly-anticipated release of Creed III, officially making it a trilogy since its debut in 2015. The series follows the story of Adonis “Donnie” Creed, portrayed by the talented Michael B. Jordan. As the son of the legendary Apollo Creed (played by Carl Weathers), Donnie strives to uphold his father’s legacy while making a name for himself in the boxing world.
Fans are excited to see what Jordan brings to the plate, following in the footsteps of Ryan Coogler (Black Panther) and Steven Caple Jr. (The Land), who directed the first two films. For the third installment, Jordan takes on a new role as the lead actor and director. Creed III is written by Keenan Coogler (Space Jam: A New Legacy) and Zach Baylin (King Richard), promising to deliver another thrilling chapter in the Creed saga.
Creed III Cast:
Joining Michael B. Jordan in Creed III are returning cast members Tessa Thompson (Thor: Ragnarok) and Phylicia Rashad (The Cosby Show), reprising their roles as Bianca, Donnie’s wife, and Mary Anne, Donnie’s stepmother, respectively.
Wood Harris (Empire) and Florian Munteanu (Shang Chi: The Legend of the Ten Rings) also make a comeback as Tony “Little Duke” Burton, Donnie’s trainer, and Viktor Drago, Donnie’s previous rival from Creed II.
