According to Deadline, Jonathan is in negotiations to join the third installment of the boxing film as Adonis Creed’s ring nemesis.

Of course, the biggest hurdle will be working out Jonathan’s schedule, the “Lovecraft Country” star stays booked and busy.

On the heels L.C. and starring in Spike Lee‘s “Da 5 Bloods,” Jonathan Majors is also set to play Kang the Conqueror in Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. 

He also stars in the Jeymes Samuel-directed Western, “The Harder They Fall” for Netflix, and Black Label Media’s Korean war flick, Devotion.

Tessa Thompson and Phylicia Rashad have already signed on to reprise their roles in Creed III, but it will be major if Jonathan is added to the cast.

See what I just did right there?

I’ll keep you posted!
