Creed III to be Michael B. Jordan’s Directorial Debut



Michael B. Jordan is set to make his debut as a director in the third installment of the Creed franchise it was announced today by MGM,

The movie is set to be released in the US on 23rd November 2022, with a UK release potentially set for the week after.

Jordan released a statement following the news:

“Directing has always been an aspiration, but the timing had to be right. Creed III is that moment — a time in my life where I’ve grown more sure of who I am, holding agency in my own story, maturing personally, growing professionally, and learning from the Greats like Ryan Coogler, most recently Denzel Washington, and other top tier directors I respect. All of which sets the table for this moment. This franchise and in particular the themes of Creed III are deeply personal to me. I look forward to sharing the next chapter of Adonis Creed’s story with the awesome responsibility of being its director and namesake.”
