Previously, a video was released in which Jordan worked hard to get his giant biceps for the role.
‘Creed 3‘ will continue the story of boxer Adonis Creed, but it won’t bring back his longtime mentor. That way, Sylvester Stallone won’t come back like Rocky Balboa.
In an interview with IGN, Jordan explained why the star does not return.
“I think Sly made it clear that he wasn’t coming back for this one, but I think, you know, his essence and his spirit… there’s always going to be a little bit of Rocky inside Adonis. But this is a Creed franchise, and we really want to build that story and that world around it moving forward. So it’s always respect and always a ton of love for what he’s built, but we really want to push and navigate Adonis forward and the family that he’s raised. I hope you love what I’m creating… what we’re preparing. I think it will be something special.” he stated.
The feature film will be released on the day November 23, 2022.
Tessa Thompson also returns as Bianca Taylor.
Zach Baylin (‘King Richard’) scripts.
Please note that ‘Creed II‘ was a critical and public success, grossing $214.1 million worldwide – surpassing the box office of the first chapter ($173.6m)
