A 'Creed' Anime is reportedly in the works following the spectacular success of 'Creed III.' The third installment of the Michael B. Jordan-led spinoff series of the 'Rocky' franchise earned over $100 million internationally upon its debut this month.
On Thursday, Deadline reported that Amazon, having recently acquired MGM, the business behind the 'Creed' collection, is allegedly in negotiations with Jordan about the possibility of extending the universe of Rocky/Creed with other related projects, including — and unsurprisingly — an anime series.
Jordan, a great admirer of the anime genre, assured that his ardor had been reflected in the boxing scenes of 'Creed III'. He even got his partner, Jonathan Majors, to watch anime in preparation for their film, which was necessary to comprehend the clash between Adonis and his enemy, Damian Anderson, as reported by Kotaku.
Deadline reported that, aside from the 'Creed' anime series, Amazon is also pondering a new project concentrating on Adonis' offspring, Amara (Mila Davis-Kent).
Back in July 2022 it was revealed that MGM was developing a spinoff film crafted by Robert Lawton. This movie is to follow the story of Russian boxer Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren) and his son Viktor Drago (Florian Munteanu), who was the antagonist in 'Creed II'.
'Creed III' has arrived in theaters across the globe. After 'Creed II', viewers have been eagerly awaiting the continuation of the franchise and are now able to catch it on the big screen.
