Michael B. Jordan is hoping to continue making 'Creed' movies - but he may not always star in the ring
Michael B. Jordan wants to keep making 'Creed' movies.
The 31-year-old actor portrays Adonis Johnson in the sequel, which is set for release in November, alongside Sylvester Stallone - who plays his trainer Rocky Balboa - and he has admitted he'd love to create a huge franchise in years to come.
He said: "I want to keep making them as long as they're good. I always want to keep my finger on the pulse. Forty two years, I mean, who knows?"
However, the 'Black Panther' star doesn't know if he'll always get in the ring because he finds training for the role really intense and the physical side of playing the legendary boxer in the movies is already taking a toll on his body.
Speaking to the Toronto Sun, he said: "I'm not saying I'm old by any means, but the process of getting in shape was a bit harder for 'Creed II'. "
Jordan's career has gone from strength to strength over the past few years and he has no plans to slow down any time soon as he's just signed up to produce new WWII movie 'The Liberators' as he wants to spend more time behind the camera.
Jordan - who runs the production company Outlier Society - said recently: "I think that's a fair assumption. I think in time we grow as people, as humans, as artists. We want to continue to grow and elevate, I know I do.
"For me, producing and creating opportunities and telling stories is something that I've always been fascinated with. To be able to have my own production company, be able to start telling more stories and get more on that side of things, it's important to me. So I'm not going to put a time-frame on it or whatever, but in the future for sure I'll spend more time producing and hopefully directing and telling stories.
"Then I'll pick my projects that I'm really passionate about, that I really want to do as far as getting in front of the camera and I'll do those as well. It's about trying to find a balance."
