Jonathan Majors is in early talks to join Michael B. Jordan in Creed III.
The third film in the Creed franchise is set to be Michael B. Jordan’s directorial debut, as well as the first film in the wider Rocky franchise that doesn’t feature Sylvester Stallone. While the latter news might be disappointing to fans, there’s still tons of excitement in seeing Jordan helm a Creed film all on his own. And every worthy hero needs a worthy adversary, and that just might end up being Lovecraft Country‘s breakout star Jonathan Majors.
Deadline is reporting that Jonathan Majors will star as an adversary to Michael B. Jordan’s Creed in the ring. Unfortunately, beyond that, details regarding Major’s character aren’t known. The Lovecraft Country star hasn’t officially signed onto the role, but it wouldn’t be surprising if the deal came through considering how much of a heavyweight Majors has become in Hollywood.

Here is the synopsis for Michael B Jordan’s Creed II:
Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family’s past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what’s worth fighting for, and discover that nothing’s more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can’t escape your history.
Directed by Steven Caple Jr. from a script written by Cheo Hodari Coker and Sylvester Stallone, Creed II stars Sylvester Stallone, Michael B Jordan, Tessa Thompson, Phylicia Rashad, Dolph Lundgren, Wood Harris, Andre Ward, and Buddy Marcelle.
