After a poster reveal and a release date for the upcoming one Creed IIIFans are already speculating about the origins of Jonathan Majors’ character’s debut in the franchise.

Creed III Star Michael B Jordan. Making his directorial debut with “Threequel,” immediately caused a stir in the Twittersphere with his post, which featured character posters for Jordan’s titular character, Adonis, and Jonathan Majors, our main character’s alleged ringside opponent.

With the film’s motto “You can’t run from your past,” people have already begun to speculate as to who Majors’ character might be connected to in the original Rocky Franchise. During 2015 Believe saw newcomer Tony Bellews “Pretty” Ricky Conlan as the main antagonist, Creed II‘s main villain was the son of Rocky IVby Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren). With Viktor Drago by Florian Munteanu he introduces the concept of the children of Rocky Franchise opponents appearing in the Believe spinoff franchise, it’s only natural for people to wonder if the same can be said for the character of Majors.

It didn’t take long for people to immediately theorize that Majors’ character is the son of Clubber Lang, the antagonist of Rocky III presented by Mr T.

Clubber Lang was the person responsible for the death of Burgess Meredith’s Mickey Goldmill, the longtime trainer of Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky Balboa. Even if Stallone’s Rocky won’t be there Creed IIIa duel between Adonis and Clubber Lang’s son would still be an epic rivalry.

one Rocky III The fanatic was even hoping for a recreation of a memorable scene between Rocky and Carl Weathers’ Apollo Creed embracing on a beach as the former rivals became friends over the course of the film.

However, one fan couldn’t help but point out that Adonis’ father had little direct connection to Clubber Lang — aside from helping train Rocky — so it wouldn’t entirely make sense if the rivalry between Adonis and Clubber Lang would take place son, after all.

“[W]Are they together in the youth or residential group? Bet it is,” the Twitter user wrote, referencing the fact that Adonis’ upbringing after his father’s death was marred by being in and out of juvenile detention centers and group homes – basically living as an orphan and living away from his estranged mother.

“I guess [they’re] Foster brothers or knew each other from teens,” agreed another Twitter user, noting that Majors’ character name – Damian “Dame” Anderson – has no apparent connection to Clubber Lang’s name.

Should the trend of Adonis fighting the children of former Rocky rivals continue, it was a Rocky fan’s wish that it would be nice to get a redemption arc for it rocky v‘s secondary antagonist, Tommy Morrison’s Tommy “The Machine” Gunn, in a future Creed film in which his son becomes a good guy who teams up with Adonis.

Featuring acting powerhouses Michael B. Jordan and Jonathan Majors, we’re sure the threesome has plenty of potential to blow our socks off when it hits the ring in theaters on March 3, 2023. Creed III theorists are already convinced Jonathan Majors is the son of a Rocky icon
