Creed III, the third installment in the boxing film series starring Michael B. Jordan and Jonathan Majors, has given fans another glimpse of the long-awaited third installment ahead of its March release.

On October 18, 2022, MGM released the long-awaited first trailer for Creed III, which shows a time warp into the glamorous future of Adonis, years after he successfully defended his world heavyweight title. This time, however, he will face a new challenge from his past.
In the film’s preview, Damian reappears in Adonis’ life 18 years after his imprisonment, and he wants to train with the world-famous boxer. But along the way, jealousy and personal resentment arise between the two, leading to an epic showdown in the ring. Now the big question on everyone’s mind: will Adonis be back at the top or will he spoil his near-perfect record with another loss? “We wanted to make sure we were growing and still duplicating the things that people have come to expect and love about this franchise, but also take them to new places.” Although Sylvester Stallone won’t reprise his role as Rocky Balboa in Creed III, which he played in the famous Rocky franchise, Adonis’ trainer in the first two Creed films, his absence will surely advance the story of Adonis since she cemented his boxing legacy. alone.
