What is the plot of Creed 3?
This is movie is set seven years after Creed 2 when Adonis ‘Donnie’ Creed (Michael B Jordan) move to Los Angeles with wife, Bianca (Tessa Thompson) and their young daughter.
Donnie is living a successful life, at the peak of his boxing career when his childhood friend Damian comes back into his life. Damian has just finished serving 18-years in prison and feels that Donnie has stolen his place as boxing champion.
You will recall that Donnie too was on a bad path when Mary Anne Creed picked him up from an LA juvenile detention center as a child. As you can see from the trailer itself, the presence of of Damien brings back a lot of old memories and raw feelings.
When Donnie helps Damian to set his life, Damian takes this opportunity and tells him that he’s back for revenge and wants everything from Donnie.
This is surely a roller coaster ride for emotions and bound to have action in it.
Will Sylvester Stallone appear in Creed 3?
Sylvester Stallone will not be appearing in this movie and will not be watching it in theaters. This news has come as a shock to fans of the franchise, who have come to love and admire Stallone as Rocky Balboa.
It’s important to remember that Stallone’s absence from the film is due to a disagreement with one of the producers Irwin Winkler, and not with the film itself. Stallone also has objections with the tone of this movie.
Here’s Stallone’s response in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter about not being in Creed 3:
That’s a regretful situation because I know what it could have been. It was taken in a direction that is quite different than I would’ve taken it. It’s a different philosophy–Irwin Winkler’s and Michael B. Jordan’s. I wish them well, but I’m much more of a sentimentalist. I like my heroes getting beat up, but I just don’t want them going into that dark space. I just feel people have enough darkness.
