- Sylvester Stallone spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about not reprising his role as Rocky Balboa in this sequel "That's a regretful situation because I know what it could have been," Stallone told THR's James Hibberd. "It was taken in a direction that is quite different than I would've taken it. It's a different philosophy [producer] Irwin Winkler's and Michael B. Jordan's," Stallone said of the movie to THR. "I wish them well, but I'm much more of a sentimentalist. I like my heroes getting beat up, but I just don't want them going into that dark space. I just feel people have enough darkness." Stallone also revealed in the interview that despite having created Rocky Balboa, he has never had any rights to the character, despite asking Winkler. "It's never gonna happen," Stallone said. "It was a deal that was done unbeknownst to me by people that I thought were close to me and they basically gave away whatever rights I would have had." "At the time I was so excited to be working and I didn't understand this is a business," he continued. "Who knew 'Rocky' would go on for another 45 years? I've never used one [line of dialogue] from anyone else and the irony is that I don't own any of it. The people who have done literally nothing control it." I'm not an executive producer on the 'Creed' movies. Ryan Coogler is. Michael B. Jordan is. [Winkler and fellow producer Robert Chartoff's] children are. Not mine. I'm the only one left out."
- Mila Davis-Kent, the actress for Amara Creed, is deaf herself in real life.
- While Adonis speaks to Felix and Little Duke at Bianca's party, Damien can be seen in the back speaking to the man who attacks Viktor later in the scene.
- In the prologue, a younger Damien brags to Adonis about using a specific combination ending with a straight right to take down his opponent. Adonis uses the very same combination to knock out Damien during the last round of their fight.
- Sylvester Stallone confirmed that he will never watch this movie and the reason is "Irwin Winkler" saying "You can't make peace with someone who has been so, so nefarious, in my opinion," and Stallone criticized Winkler for developing a new spin-off based on the character of Dolph Lundgren, Ivan Drago by saying "A unnecessary spin off movie"
- In early 2020 it was reported that Creed III would be Michael B. Jordan's directing debut. He executive produced Creed II (2018).
- This will be the first film in the Rocky/Creed series to not feature Sylvester Stallone as Rocky Balboa. With his absence, there will be no characters who have appeared in every film in the series.
- In the opening flashback, Adonis gives Damien a ticket Apollo had of the famous Rumble in the Jungle fight between Muhammad Ali and George Foreman. Both Ali and Foreman were inspirations for Apollo's characterization.
- Donnie's room in 2002 is littered with various pieces of anime memorabilia, which Michael B. Jordan confirmed to have drawn from his own experiences growing up as a fan of the medium.
- According to Jonathan Majors, Damien's surname, Anderson, is taken from his own grandfather.
- The scene in the locker room after the final fight where Adonis and Damien reconcile is directly inspired by a deleted scene from Creed II (2018), where Adonis speaks to Viktor after their second fight.
- Sylvester Stallone announced on his Instagram that he would not be returning as Rocky Balboa for Creed III. Director Ryan Coogler convinced him to come back for the first Creed, and he stuck around for Creed II (2018), but now, Rocky's story has been completed, and Adonis Creed's story will continue.
- Before Adonis starts his training, Duke gives him a rundown on all of his weaknesses and health issues to turn them into strengths, just like how his father before him did with Rocky in Rocky Balboa (2006).
- With a run-time of 1 hours and 56 minutes, this is the shortest film in the Creed series.
- In the movie, Damian (Jonathan Majors) is a couple of years older than Adonis (Michael B. Jordan). However, Jordan is actually Majors' senior by two years in real life.
- For Adonis' relationship with his daughter, Amara was inspired by Michael B. Jordan observations of Kobe Bryant and Jamie Foxx, which he discussed with IndieWire: "We were on the 'Just Mercy' tour and Kobe Bryant hosted a screening. And Jamie Foxx has a strong relationship with his daughter, who was into basketball, she was playing basketball. And Kobe's sitting there talking about Gianna and basketball and the Mamba Academy and everything. And I just remember stepping out of myself for a second, and I'm looking at these guys that I have real admiration for and hearing them talk about their daughters. I was like, 'Man, I'm pulling from all of this right now for the movie.' I wanted to honor these kinds of relationships and what it means to be a girl dad."
- Continuing the tradition that Sylvester Stallone started with Rocky II (1979), Michael B. Jordan has officially inherited the role as director of the series he's starring in.
- Michael B. Jordan is a huge anime fan. In an interview with IGN's Logan Plant, he referred to various anime to make this film's fights feel distinct from the previous entries. He specifically mentioned boxing anime like Fighting Spirit (2000) and Megalo Box (2018), along with popular shonen Naruto (2002) and My Hero Academia (2016). A particular punch from Dragon Ball Z (1989) is teased between his Creed and Jonathan Majors' Damian's match, and Jordan points to a Cross Counter performed between Naruto and Sasuke in Naruto: Shippuden (2007) as a reference for a similar moment in the film.
- Damien compares Adonis in his retirement to Don King, which means that King exists in the same universe as George Washington Duke, who was heavily inspired by him.
- A scene in which Adonis, Bianca and Amara revisit Adonis' previous juvenile detention center was ultimately cut from the final theatrical version of the film. A glimpse of said scene is shown in the first trailer.
- Ludwig Göransson, who composed the first two Creed films, will not return to compose due to schedule conflicts. Instead it will composed by Joseph Shirley.
- Mila Davis-Kent (Amara Creed) said in a red carpet interview that she does not condone her character fighting back against her bully and would seek an adult instead.
- Just like in Rocky IV (1985) a boxer close to the protagonist receives a no-holds-barred beatdown from the antagonist and suffers grave injuries as a result. This results in the protagonist challenging the antagonist. Fortunately, this time the boxer survives.
- The third film in the Creed series is released on the third day of the third month (March) in the third year of the third decade of the third millennium of the Common Era.
- The film will be released in the US by MGM via United Artists Releasing and internationally by Warner Bros. (who co-distributed the first two movies) on November 23, 2022. It is also the first Rocky film since Rocky V (1990) to go under the United Artists banner.
- During the training montage, a lyric in the song mentions the Marvel location Wakanda. Director/producer/star Michael B. Jordan plays a Wakandan in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
- This is Jacob 'Stitch' Duran's 4th consecutive Rocky based movie, starting with Rocky Balboa (2006).
- It is the first film to be self-distributed by MGM under the ownership of Amazon, which shut down the studio's previous distributor United Artists Releasing on the day of the film's release, due to the financial failures of Bones and All (2022), Till (2022) and Women Talking (2022), all of which were the studio's 2022 awards season films that were ignored by audiences upon their releases, as well as the decision to release Amazon Studios' Air (2023) into theaters in April in response to that film's generating 2024 Oscar buzz.
- Though it wound up being a deleted scene, if Spider Rico's death from Creed II (2018) is considered canon, then a death/substantial loss has occurred in every Rocky based movie since Rocky III (1982).
- In a 2023 interview with BlackTreeTV, Michael B. Jordan spoke about the themes he wanted to address in the film: "Nature vs. nurture, you know, and what does that look like with one of our heroes? How is he challenged in a real way? What does childhood trauma look like for us? What does toxic masculinity look like for us? What does being emotional and vulnerable and talking, what does that look like? Having that black experience and understanding what that is and organically actually put it in a story where it makes sense. What does black love look like? What does that family look like? What does a black ASL family look like? There's so many tropes that are in there that I kinda wanted to talk about and we got a chance to organically do that."
- Michael B. Jordan, Jonathan Majors, and Tessa Thompson, along with director of the first Creed film Ryan Coogler have previously worked in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Jordan portrayed Erik Killmonger, Majors portrayed He Who Remains/ Kang the Conqueror, Thompson portraying Valkyrie, and Coogler serving as the director for both Black Panther (2018) and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (2022).
- In the opening scene, Adonis has a Naruto Shippuden poster on his bedroom wall. The scene is a flashback that takes place in 2002, five years before Naruto Shippuden premiered in Japan and seven years before it premiered in the U.S.
- Film debut of Jose Benavidez.
