Michael B. Jordan Reveals How 'Creed II' Can Help People

Michael B. Jordan and Tessa Thompson are on the cover of Entertainment Weekly‘s latest issue, on newsstands on November 19.

Here’s what the stars of the upcoming Creed II had to share with the mag…

Michael, on certain aspects of the film resonating with black audiences: “As broad as we want it to be and as accessible to everybody, we try to find moments to make it very specific for us. We deserve that.”

Tessa, on making big movies: “I couldn’t imagine myself within a huge franchise because, with the exception of a few women of color, it just didn’t exist.”

Michael, on the film’s ability to motivate: “It’s to help people dream, to get over hard times, as an escape from their reality. The Rocky films, they did that. If the Creed franchise can have that same effect, I think we’ve done our job.”
