Balboa reluctantly agrees to train Adonis, and so begins the young man’s ascent to the top in the world of boxing.

The second Creed movie was released in 2018, and saw Adonis face his most dangerous opponent yet; Viktor Drago (played by Florian ‘Big Nasty’ Munteanu).

Made on a modest budget of $50 million, Creed II earned an impressive $214 million and this has spurred MGM to move ahead with plans for a sequel.

Baylin is behind the script of King Richard, a biopic that will take a look at the life of real-life tennis sisters Venus and Serena Williams. His hiring by MGM shows that he is good at what he does so we should expect a great third outing for Adonis Creed.
