“Creed” might be getting its own Amazon universe, with Michael B. Jordan potentially behind an anime spin-off.
Jordan, who starred in and directed “Creed III” — the ninth installment in the “Rocky” franchise — is in talks with Amazon to develop a “Creed-verse,” according to Deadline.
The media outlet noted that conversations between the 36-year-old actor and Amazon have reportedly been ongoing since last year.
Upcoming “Creed”-related projects might include “an anime series connected to the ‘Rocky’ spinoff IP [intellectual property” and “a companion live-action TV series.”
The recent news may not come as a surprise to fans of Jordan, who notably made headlines in February 2018 following the release of “Black Panther.”
Several followers of the Marvel star noticed his love for anime, with many of them dubbing him a “weeaboo.”
Earlier this month, Jordan shared that he was heavily influenced by anime while developing “Creed III.” A fight scene between the characters Creed and Damian, for example, was inspired by a scene from episode 450 of “Naruto Shippuden.”
