I’m very excited about this one!
Michael B. Jordan Directed the Film
In addition to playing the lead, Jordan is also donning the director’s hat and making his debut as a filmmaker of a feature picture. I think that Sly let it be known that he wasn’t coming back for this one but I think, you know, his energy and his spirit there’s always going to be a little bit of Rocky within Adonis, he remarked while discussing how he intended to take the movie in a new path after Stallone’s departure.
But because this is part of the Creed series, we intend to continue to center the rest of the narrative and the environment around [Adonis]. The actor-turned-director continued, “So, it’s always respect and always a shitload of love for what [Stallone] built, but we truly want to push and navigate Adonis forward and the family that he created.
