AceShowbiz - Michael B. Jordan has revealed he is working on plans for "Creed IV". While preparing to launch the third movie in the boxing series in March which sees him returning as Adonis "Donnie" Creed - the son of Rocky Balboa's former opponent Apollo Creed - and taking charge of the movie as director, the actor has now confirmed his plans beyond "Creed III".
"For sure," he told IGN when asked if fans can expect a fourth film. Jordan went on, "I just want to expand the 'Creed'-verse within reason, but definitely expect other things around Creed for sure."
Jonathan Majors plays Creed's nemesis in "Creed III" and he previously told fans Jordan is taking the series in a new direction. He told NME, "Michael is really trying to do something different with this Creed. Something that's a bit more intimate. With intimacy comes complexity. It's he and I. It's a story about these two men trying to work something out, and it's very different from the others."
The sequel will be the first "Rocky" spin-off not to feature original star Sylvester Stallone, but Jordan insisted the "spirit" of Rocky Balboa will be felt throughout the film. He said last year, "I think that Sly let it be known that he wasn't coming back for this one but I think, you know, his essence and his spirit… there's always going to be a little bit of Rocky within Adonis."
"But this is a 'Creed' franchise, and we really want to build this story and this world around [Adonis Creed] moving forward."
