28 Feb – Jonathan Majors recently revealed that the third instalment of "Creed" will have Japanese anime influence, seeing how big a fan of anime the director is.
The actor, who spoke about working with Michael B. Jordan, who plays the titular character while also directs the movie, stated that Jordan always talks about the complexities of friendships and rivalries in anime.
"He showed me one of his favourite fights between two friends where they get to a point in their battles where everything else seems to fall away. There's this idea that there is the fight going on externally and then the fight going on internally and perhaps another fight going on on top of that's more meta or spiritual," he said.
Fans of Jordan will already know that the actor is a big fan of Naruto, and that Majors' revelation about the anime influence might be related to the long-running Shonen series. "Creed III" is directed by Jordan himself in his first directorial effort.
The movie will see Damian (Majors) facing his former best friend Adonis (Jordan) in the ring, forcing them to explore their rivalry.
