The expansion of the Rocky & Creed Universe
Following the release of Creed 3, Michael B. Jordan has openly shared his vision of broadening the scope of the beloved boxing saga into a cinematic universe. Given the significant success of the threequel, there is talk of Amazon and MGM laying a robust foundation for an array of interconnected film and TV projects.
As per reports from Deadline, plans are being hatched for a spin-off film focusing on the character of Drago. Additionally, a promising project spotlighting Adonis Creed's daughter, Amara, is under consideration.
Amara ventured into the boxing world in the threequel and is expected to take the franchise into exciting new territories. Furthermore, plans extend beyond live-action projects, with both an anime and a live-action TV series rooted in the Rocky universe rumored to be in the pipeline.
Streaming is set to play a critical role in shaping the future of this iconic boxing franchise. Mirroring how Disney+ has positioned itself as the epicenter for Marvel and Star Wars, in addition to the new original series, Amazon Prime Video is poised to be the one-stop streaming destination for all things Rocky and Creed.
