Michael B. Jordan remains one of the most established actors in Hollywood right now. The Black Panther star is generally tight-lipped about his personal life, notoriously so. However, that was not the case when it came to his relationship with Lori Harvey.
The Rocky films starring Sylvester Stallone remains an iconic series for fans and is still regarded as one of the best underdog stories ever told. The spinoff to the series, called Creed, already has two films under its belt and has done fairly well for itself as well.
It stars Michael B. Jordan as Apollo Creed’s son Adonis. However, Stallone’s character will not be returning in the third Creed film. He is also the director of the film. The reason for Stallone not being in the film was also revealed previously.
While speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Michael B. Jordan talked about why he decided to follow in Sylvester Stallone’s footsteps and sit on the director’s chair for the upcoming film.
“My ambition has intersected at this moment where I have the experience and knowledge to direct, the opportunity within a franchise to step behind the camera and [the ability] to maximize it by having a production company. It’s my turn to make my impact while I have the energy and strength. I’ve got to tee up the ones that come after, but at the same time hyper-focus on what needs to be done right now. It’s the moment I’ve waited for my entire life. This is it. This can dictate the next 10, 15, 20 years.”
Stallone played Rocky in eight movies, directed four of them, and served as a writer or co-writer on all the Rocky movies and Creed II. Creed III is slated to release on 23 November 2022. We will fare and whether it will live up to the expectations.
