Michael B. Jordan is back with another sure hit on the big screen.
The Black Panther actor stars released a new poster and trailer for Creed II.
Jordan. Baby oil. Muscles. It’s all there.
Creed II is the much-anticipated sequel to Adonis Creed’s story. After finding his footing in professional boxing, he’s now training for his next big fight against an opponent with “ties to his family’s past.” From the trailer, it also looks like Creed has a daughter with his love interest, Bianca (played by Tessa Thompson), and family obligations that will either hinder him or further fuel him to become a champion.
Look, even if Jordan doesn’t win his on-screen fight, the ESSENCE cover star is always a winner in our books, okurr?
Sylvester Stallone, Wood Harris, Andre Ward and Phylicia Rashad also return to round out the cast. Jordan and his chiseled chest hit theaters November 21.
