“I think it was one of those things where I just felt comfortable,” he said of the film. “I knew it was going to be a risk. I’m super excited to get behind the camera.”

Michael had previously starred as aspiring boxer Adonis “Donnie” Johnson Creed, the son of Apollo Creed, in Creed (2015) and Creed II (2018). He’s set to reprise his role in Creed III as well.

He went on to say that directing has allowed him to explore the story he wants to tell in the movie and “execute the vision I saw in my head.”

“So from the second one to the third one, I called [director] Ryan [Coogler] up and he’s like, ‘You’re ready for it. Just do it,’” he said.
