Creed 3 (2023)

The script by Ryan Coogler and King Richard scribe Zach Baylin follows our favorite retired world heavyweight champion of the world, Adonis “Donnie” Creed living his post-fighter life. Creed manages the Delphi Boxing Academy and promotes the champ Felix (current and real-life welterweight boxer José Benavidez Jr.). He now has the “Don King” role in boxing. He is working on the fight of the century between Felix and Viktor Drago. Creed’s wife, Bianca (Tessa Thompson), is producing music, and they are raising their adorable daughter Amara who is hearing impaired.

However, a wrench was thrown into Creed’s big-picture plans. Donnie’s childhood friend, Damian (Jonathan Majors), has just been released from prison after serving 18 years. Damian wrote Adonis over the years, but he never responded. Creed claims he never received the letters, a source of hurt feelings between the two. He is now Felix’s sparring partner. Why? So he can get ready for the big title fight with Drago. This doesn’t sit well with Damian, who tells his oldest friend the only thing he wants is a shot to be the heavyweight champion of the world.
