Two months stand in between fight fans and the release of Creed III. After five years layoff, Adonis Creed will return to the ring to face off against an old friend turned foe. While the action inside of the ring will undoubtedly captivate viewers, the story of how Creed reenters the sport of boxing will be equally as attention-grabbing.
A major aspect of Adonis Creed’s evolution in Creed III will be the maturation of his daughter, Amara. As explained in previous films, Amara Creed is deaf and her mother, Bianca, suffers from progressive hearing loss. In the third film of the growing film imprint, the role of Amara Creed will be played by Mila Davis-Ken, a deaf child actress. Recently, actor and director Michael B. Jordan explained how the film’s cast and crew went about properly representing Amara Creed on screen.
“I think naturally it was the right evolution of Creed’s family. How do they grow? How do they deal with that obstacle and turn it into a superpower? It’s a community of people that didn’t really get true representation as much as they should and we use this as an opportunity to do that,” Jordan said, per Slash Film.
Jordan and the Creed III team not only worked to properly represented Amara Creed on screen, but they also learned American Sign Language during the course of the film.
“Learning ASL and normalizing it was a really big deal for us,” Jordan said, per Slash Film.
“Hopefully in watching this movie, you feel it.”
Amara, Bianca and Adonis Creed will bring Creed III to the big screen on March 3, 2023. In the meantime, check out the film’s trailer below.
