Both the actors were able to successfully complete the tasks because they underwent rigorous physical training.
In addition to the physical component, Jonathan assisted Jordan in developing the character, Damian. The movie script was hardly complete when Jordan received it. Major stated, “The character’s name was originally Brandon – it was completely different. There was a vehicle, but the vehicle had no paint on it and it had no wheels. We just knew who was going to drive it. The design of it was essentially very Mary Shelley.”
Although Majors continues to distinguish himself as one of the finest performers thanks to his portrayal of all those diverse characters in Creed III, Jordan’s directorial debut takes the spotlight. Creed III is enhanced by the competition in the acting and storylines by both the actors.
Despite having a framework that is typical of a sports movie, the movie delivers 12 rounds of cerebral gut punches that will stay with you long after the final buzzer.
