Amazon Welcomes Michael B. Jordan's "Creed-Verse" With Arms Wide Open - Report

Following Creed III's massive success, the tech giant has plans to expand the franchise.


Amazon is looking to expand the Creed movie franchise into a universe that spans both film and TV. Deadline was first to report.

Following the global success of Creed III, which achieved an over $100M global opening and broke box office records, there have been meetings between Amazon and franchise star Michael B. Jordan. Details of the scope of the universe are still being worked out, but plans for an anime series connected to the Rocky spinoff IP are in the works, along with a companion live-action TV series. Additionally, there is talk of a project focused on Adonis Creed's daughter, Amara, who was played by deaf actress Mila Davis-Kent in Creed III.

There has been a Drago spinoff movie in development at MGM, which would center around Russian boxer Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren), and his son, Viktor Drago (Florian Munteanu), who was introduced as Creed's adversary in Creed II. So far, a script has been commissioned, but it is unclear whether it will be produced--or whether it would be a series or a standalone movie.

There is also the possibility of more Creed feature installments, as well as ideas for other live-action and animated movies. Jordan has expressed his excitement about building the Creed universe, and through three movies, the franchise is nearing the half-billion-dollar mark at the global box office.

There have been talks about exploring the story of the mothership Rocky franchise, including Rocky's origins, for years. Stallone, the creator and star of the franchise, is expected to be involved if and when a project comes together.
