Details regarding the plot of the film have been kept under wraps; however, Jonathan Majors revealed a bit of insight into his character, Anderson Dame, during a recent interview with Men's Health.

"There are certain reasons you build your body," he explained to the outlet. "Dame’s body was built from loss. He had lost something, and that hole is what made him work the way he worked. When you see Dame’s body, you go, Oh, that makes sense. You don’t look like that and be happy with life."

Creed III will be the first film in the Rocky franchise without Sylvester Stallone to play the iconic fighter. It will also be the first time Jordan steps behind the camera to direct. The first Creed was directed by Ryan Coogler while the sequel was helmed by Steven Caple Jr.
