Creed 3 release date delayed to March 2023
Creed 3’s release date, which had been set for just a few months earlier, was postponed to March 3, 2023. On November 23, it was initially planned to stun spectators. The Michael B. Jordan boxing movie, which he was set to helm for the third time, was postponed by MGM without providing any explanation. The fight between Creed 3 and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (November 11), The Fabelmans (November 23), Strange World (November 23), and Disenchanted (November 23) would have taken place on the previous date (November 24). It will now have competition from John Wick 4 (March 17), Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom (March 3), and Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves (March 24).
While Jordan will reprise his title role in Creed 3, he will also serve as director and producer. He will appear alongside Tessa Thompson, Jonathan Majors, and Phylicia Rashad in the movie “Thor: Love and Thunder” (Soul). Majors will have a big year because he will play Kang again in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. This will cement Kang’s place as the MCU’s next big bad guy and set the stage for Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars, both of which will come out in 2025.
Zach Baylin (King Richard), Keenan, and Ryan Coogler will co-write the movie (Black Panther). Together with William Chartoff, Jonathan Glickman, Nicholas Stern, Charles Winkler, David Winkler, and Irwin Winkler, Ryan Coogler will produce the film. Executive producers include Adam Rosenberg, Sev Ohanian, and Zinzi Coogler. Ryan Coogler will have a big year with Wakanda Forever even though Creed 3’s release date was postponed.
The third installment of the Rocky/Creed series, Creed, will be the first to not star Sylvester Stallone. In reference to the rights to the Rocky franchise, the actor criticized producer Irwin Winkler. Despite acting in, writing the script for, and directing parts of Rocky, he has no ownership of the franchise. He attacked the producer on social media because he wanted to leave something from the series that made him famous for his children.
