Creed IV (D: Jordan)

Michael B Jordan created quite a storm as a first-time director for Creed III the feature looked stunning and felt exhilarating and maintained the same DNA as its predecessors. Jordan took double responsibility of leading the feature on screen and behind it and knocked it out of the ring. The movie was not only a commercial success but a critical one too and he’ll return to spread some more magic with Creed IV in the dual role. Producer Irwin Winkler recently confirmed to Deadline, Jordan “will be” returning to helm the fourth feature.

“We’re planning to do Creed IV right now, and we have a really good story, really good plot,” Winkler said. He further mentioned that the plans saw a delay “because of strike, like everybody else” but “probably a year from now we’re going for pre-production,” he informed the audience. The plans for the fourth installment were in place since the success of the previous installment and the makers are making good on those. It’ll be interesting to see which trick Jordan pulls out of his hat now as a filmmaker after breathing a new life into the franchise with Creed III.

Re: Creed IV (D: Jordan)

So they are going to try to make more Creed films than Rocky? Can you even box in space?

They're pulling a Rocky Balboa now? Pull him out of retirement yet again?

I didn't realize Irwin Winkler was the Crypt Keeper.

Anyway, this reminds me I need to watch Creed III.

Creed III was pretty good... and I'm always up for another one. MBJ did a great job behind the camera.

Re: Creed IV (D: Jordan)

It was dumb to have him retire in Creed 3. He looked like he could have been in the prime of his career. Happy to hear part 4 is coming. Wonder if Creed’s daughter will have a bigger role.

Re: Creed IV (D: Jordan)

There was this comic that came out too... I wonder if they'd skip ahead to this...




BOOM! Studios, under license by MGM and in collaboration with Michael B. Jordan’s production company, Outlier Society, and Chartoff-Winkler, is proud to announce an upcoming four-issue limited comic book series based on the CREED franchise.

Creed III’s director, producer and star Michael B. Jordan serves as the creative director on the new story. He joins superstar co-writers LaToya Morgan (Dark Blood, AMC’s Walking Dead) and Jai Jamison (Superman & Lois), highly acclaimed artist Wilton Santos (Break Out), colorist DJ Chavis (Lunar Room), and executive producer Elizabeth Raposo, associate producer Christina Raquel of Outlier Society and Chartoff-Winkler to bring the future legacy of the legendary boxer to life within the pages of a comic book for the very first time in June 2023. The announcement comes following the record-breaking theatrical release of MGM’s Creed III.

The CREED comic book series begins ten years after the events of Creed III. Adonis Creed is out of the ring but not out of the game as he trains – along with his manager-wife Bianca – the next champion—his daughter Amara, now an amateur boxer. But with Adonis and Bianca reluctant to pit their daughter against more dangerous opponents, Amara feels like her career is at a standstill, and she’s hungry for more. Amara will have to find another trainer. Someone who’s not afraid of defying Adonis but still knows how to teach her to fight like a Creed. Who’s up for the challenge of training a young boxer to become the next champion fighter?

The first issue features cover art by highly acclaimed artists Mateus Manhanini, Valentine de Landro, Paris Alleyne, and more.

Re: Creed IV (D: Jordan)

So is her new trainer gonna be Rocky? Also, Adonis has a rainbow ring. I guess Amara is gay (not a complaint, just a detail I noticed in the art).

I read the third film sets up her future in boxing, but I kinda wish they didn't jump forward so fast. It feels like we barely got to know Adonis and he's already retired. I wanted him to stick around until a hated Creed V, followed by a beloved Adonis Creed, before finally transitioning to Amara​​​​​​.

I don't know if you're aware of the drama of this series. But, Sly had a falling out with Irwin Winkler over money and wants no part of this series. It's well documented on the internet. They just gave him a vanity producing credit for Creed III.

That plot is also from the comic book. I haven't read it, but apparently the trainer is Adonis' half sister that was never mentioned before, Artemis.

Yeah, I know. But given that plot summary, only Rocky makes sense (everyone else is dead). So I assumed/hoped that hatchet had been quietly buried.

I did like Creed 3, but to me it was the weakest of the three. I at several problems. The retirement wasn't a good idea, no Rocky was unfortunate and the blast of the past didn't really work. It wasn't believable that the two had been friends at one point and Kang was way to evil.

Re: Creed IV (D: Jordan)

I thought Creed III was pretty weak as well, and wonder if that will affect box office. I've said this elsewhere, but I'm MUCH more interested in that Drago spinoff they were talking about than another Creed film.

I need to rewatch 2 and 3 but slightly preferred 3 actually. I really enjoyed both fights in part 3 and felt like the fight where Kang won the title might be the best non final fight in Rocky history. I need to see it a few more times to feel confident with that but it really told a story well from what I remember. I agree with your criticisms of the film though.

Re: Creed IV (D: Jordan)

I didn't care for his choices on how he shot the fights in 3. 1 & 2 are how I want to see the fights. 3 took me out of being invested like a spectator.

Re: Creed IV (D: Jordan)

I can see people not liking them as he definitely made strong choices. Made me excited for him as a director in the future for Creed and non Creed projects.

Re: Creed IV (D: Jordan)

The time jump in 3 was an interesting choice that worked as a decent cap to the storyline, however going past that is now a bit problematic imo. (would've just preferred more of Creed in his 30's) And I have no interest at all in whatever that comic is above. I really hope this doesn't end up being another series where I just have to forget about later installments... but I suspect it may be.

100% agree. I thought Creed III was the weakest of the bunch and I just really didn't care about the characters anymore.

And even though it was just under two hours, it felt bloated and dull. I was bored by the middle of it and never recovered. I was glad I never got around to seeing it at the theater.

I loved the first Creed and thought the 2nd was a little above average. This one was just slightly below average in my opinion.
