Creed 3 Star Michael B. Jordan Teases Epic Dragon Ball Z Punch in Upcoming Sequel

It's no secret that Michael B. Jordan is a huge anime fan and it looks like his love for animated Japanese shows will be made even more obvious in his upcoming project. The Black Panther star has just teased an epic Dragon Ball Z reference in Creed III.

Michael B. Jordan is currently promoting the third Creed movie and in a recent interview with IGN, the Fruitvale Station star shared the influences that helped him try to make the fights different and unique in the sequel.

"Without nerding out too much... You've seen so many fights throughout the Rocky and Creed franchise, and I really wanted to put my spin on it, you know?" Jordan said. "How to make these fights different, and you know, from Hajime no Ippo, to Megalo Box, to Naruto, to My Hero Academia, all of those different anime that I watched growing up, there's an inherent spirit to them in how they fight..."

But what kind of influences can we expect to see in Creed 3? Michael B. Jordan admitted we'll be seeing an epic Dragon Ball Z reference in the sequel.

"I would say from the Dragon Ball Z universe, there's a punch... [in] me and Damian's fight, where there's a Dragon Ball Z punch that's in there," Jordan said.

It's great to know that Michael B. Jordan is always committed to paying tribute to his anime favorites. With that in mind, we're looking forward to Creed III next month.

The upcoming sequel will also star Jonathan Majors who is set to debut as Kang the Conqueror in Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, which hits theaters on February 17, 2023.

Creed 3 also stars Thor: Love and Thunder actor Tessa Thompson and Florian Munteanu, who played Razor Fist in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Stallone, who appeared in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, serves as a producer of the sequel. The film will premiere on March 3, 2023.
