Michael B. Jordan’s Creed III is riding high following the immediate success of the film during its opening weekend. While many critics and viewers were under the impression that it may be the final chapter of the cinematic boxing saga, there is a strong sense that not only will it not be the final Creed film, but the franchise will soon be expanded into television series.
“I just want to expand the Creed-verse within reason, but definitely expect other things around Creed for sure,” Jordan said last month.
More recently, there have been reports that Jordan, MGM and Amazon are developing several Creed spinoff projects, including an anime using the Rocky IP and a series about the life of Amara Creed. Not to mention, Tessa Thompson said that she’d be willing to return for another movie if the opportunity presented itself.
“The thing that has been really exciting about all of the movies that we’ve made thus far is that everyone has real skin in the game. We have something that we collectively want to say, and I think there’s still plenty left to say,” Thompson told The Hollywood Reporter.
“If audiences want to see it, I think we’d all be happy to return.”
Now, it appears another star may be willing to return for the Creed universe. At a private event during the week of the 95th Academy Awards, Jonathan Majors, who played Damian Anderson, said that he’d be willing to return as well.
“I know that’s always been an aspiration for brother Michael…I don’t know how far he’s going to take it. I’ve seen a few things that are very exciting. It’s on now. He’s got the ball. He’s gonna run with it,” Majors said when asked about rumors of expanding the film franchise.
“I will be as involved as brother Michael will let me.”
