Creed 2 is set to hit theatres next month and before it’s here star Michael B Jordan wants fans to know that the sequel will about more than just “revenge.”
“Victor’s storyline is very layered,” he told the Toronto Sun. “The two guys are similar in a lot of ways…Adonis feels, naturally, a certain animosity towards Viktor and Ivan, and then there are other themes in there: the maturity of growth, the importance of family, of legacy, is what makes Creed so special. It’s not just about revenge.”
The 31-year-old told the publication that his gym routine was a bit harder compared to the first Creed. “I’m probably the biggest I’ve ever been…. But I knew I was fighting someone who is a lot bigger than I am, so I wanted to try and catch up as best I could, and I killed myself in the gym to do that,” he said.
As for his legacy in the film, Michael would love to play Adonis Creed for as long as he can. “If I’m lucky. I want to keep making them as long as they’re good,” he added. “I always want to keep my finger on the pulse. Forty two years, I mean, who knows?”
