Leon is a supporting character in the film Creed 3 from 2023. He is the abυsive foster father of Adonis Creed and Damian “Diamond” Anderson, his closest friend.
Leon is initially seen in a flashback scene from Adonis’ childhood. The first Creed movie revealed that Adonis was a foster child adopted by his father’s wife, Maryanne. The opening flashback of Creed 3 depicts Adonis as a child residing with Maryanne.
In the middle of the night, Dame picks him up and takes him to a boxing match, where Dame competes and triumphs. They encounter Leon at a liquor store on their way back.
The film exposes Leon to be Adonis and Dame’s abυsive foster father, and when they encounter him in Creed 3, Adonis attacks him and Dame draws a gun on him.
Do you know that the third part in the Creed film series was released in theaters on March 3, and fans are already anticipating Creed 4, which will be written out as Creed IV? We have been following Adonis Creed’s path to maturity since 2015, when he was still a troubled adolescent struggling to live up to his name:
Adonis and Dame have just returned from a fight, so they are feeling potent in the scene. They believe Leon deserves it because he treated them horribly when they were children.
They wish to give him a taste of his own medicine by letting him know that he no longer has power over them and that he should now be the one in dread. Dame desires to defend Adonis against Leon because he cares for his comrade and desires to have his back.
In Creed 3, Dame was forced to confront the consequences of his and Adonis’ actions. Adonis is able to flee the site of the crime as soon as the police arrive, but Dame is left behind and taken to jail.
The reason Dame was composing so many letters to Adonis was that he was attempting to maintain contact with his friend while detained. However, Adonis never responded because Maryanne concealed the letters from him.
Throughout the years, Adonis felt too regretful to reach out to his friend. Because of Adonis’ comparatively privileged upbringing, Dame harbors resentment toward him.
Even though Adonis was raised in foster care and spent time in a detention center before being adopted, his father’s wealth enabled him to live a lavish lifestyle.
Creed 3 reveals that Dame was not adopted by a wealthy and loving mother, so he had a much more difficult existence and had to face the consequences of his and Adonis’ actions. This is why he is adamant on becoming a boxer like Adonis.
Because of his father’s status in the boxing world and his mother’s ability to provide him with luxuries, it was simpler for Adonis to accomplish the goals he had as a child.
Dame did not have it as simple as Adonis, but he wanted to prove he could be just as great a boxer regardless. He desperately wants to defeat Adonis in a boxing match because he wants to reclaim a fantasy he never had the chance to realize.
In Creed 3, Adonis’ friend was on his way to becoming a successful boxer when he was imprisoned for defending Adonis. Dame stood by his companion, but Adonis did not, and Dame was unable to recover from Adonis’ betrayal.
In Creed 3, is Leon still alive? What Occurred To Him? Creed 3 does not specify what transpires with Leon. The last time the audience sees him, he is on the ground after being attacked. It only discloses that Dame endured the repercussions of a fight that Adonis initiated.
However, Leon appears to be severely injured. The film also fails to address whether or not Dame reported Leon’s abυsive behavior when he and Adonis were children. Nonetheless, if Leon is still alive, his reappearance in Creed 4 could result in an intriguing plot development.
