Black Panther Star Michael B. Jordan and actress Tessa Thompson are the cover stars for Entertainment Weekly new issue.
In the magazine, the actors discuss reprising their roles as Adonis Creed and Bianca Taylor in Creed II, which will be out on Wednesday, November 21, 2018. They also talked about rising up, straight to the top, and making sure their voices are heard.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You must have been excited to get back into this world. Did you go back and watch Rocky IV to brush up on the Drago drama?
MICHAEL B. JORDAN: Yeah, Rocky IV is one of my favorites, so I was familiar with the whole beef that they had. Just getting back into that definitely got me amped up to play this part.
TESSA THOMPSON: You know what I did go back and watch was Rocky II, just to get a sense of what they did with [Rocky’s wife] Adrian in that film, and how those characters started their family and how their relationship transitioned from the first [film] to the second. I thought there was an opportunity to do something nice with ours in terms of an homage to that.
