The story of Adonis Creed continues in the highly anticipated third installment of the Creed franchise. “Creed III” finds the titular boxing champ (played by Michael B. Jordan) freshly retired and enjoying married life with his wife, Bianca (Tessa Thompson), while raising his young daughter, Amara (Mila Davis-Kent). However, a blast from Adonis’s past — a childhood friend, Damian (Jonathan Majors), who just got out of prison — comes back into his life and shakes things up. Ultimately, an old grudge forces him out of retirement.
“Creed III,” directed by Jordan, visits parts of Adonis’s youth and days of running around with his former partner in crime Damian. The movie suggests an incident that landed Damian in prison as a teen is largely what drove the two friends-turned-rivals apart.
While Adonis is reluctant to rehash that part of his life — mainly out of guilt for not checking on his friend while he was locked up — “Creed III” treats fans to a few eye-opening flashbacks that slowly reveal how their friendship fell apart. Those handful of scenes feature a young Adonis and Damian.
So, who are the actors who play the younger versions of Jordan and Majors’s characters? Keep reading to learn all about them.
