How Anime Inspired Michael B. Jordan on ‘Creed III’

Creed III opened on March 3rd, making it the ninth movie in the Rocky franchise and the third in the successful spin-off series. The film also marks star Michael B. Jordan‘s debut as a director. Several of the fight scenes, especially one in particular, look vastly different from a typical boxing movie and even past Creed films. Critics say Jordan left his creative mark on Creed III, and anime was a clear inspiration.

Jordan has often spoken about being a fan of both anime and comics. So it was fitting that he played The Human Torch in 2015’s Fantastic Four and then went on to star as villain Eric Killmonger in Black Panther.
