Michael B. Jordan Says Anime Inspired His Creed II Film Performance

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

Black Panther film star Michael B. Jordan has made it no secret that he's a fan of anime, declaring that the medium is "the best" in a video interview with Vogue magazine.

He's chatted about the latest episodes of Naruto on his social media account and is taking the next step to appear in the anime-influenced animated series gen:LOCK. Jordan sat down to talk about the web series and how anime has influenced his other career performances, including as boxer Creed in the Rocky spin-off films.

Rooster Teeth's gen:LOCK will star voice actor Kōichi Yamadera (Spike in Cowboy Bebop) alongside Hollywood stars like Jordan and Dakota Fanning. Rooster Teeth describes the story:

Fifty years in the future, an oppressive authoritarian force threatens to conquer the world. A daring team is recruited to pilot a new form of weaponized neuroscience that powers devastating mecha, but they must be willing to sacrifice everything to save the world.

The series will premiere on January 26.
