Creed III hits theaters nationwide on Friday, but before that, Michael B. Jordan has been honored with his own star!
HOLLYWOOD — Michael B. Jordan is definitely basking in his greatness right now.
The 36-year-old is celebrating the upcoming release of Creed III, which marks his directorial debut, and now has his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The ceremony took place on Wednesday afternoon, where Jordan was joined by “Black Panther” director Ryan Coogler and “Creed III” co-star Jonathan Majors.
“Oh man, that’s pretty cool,” Jordan said. “This is probably one of the most memorable weeks I’ve spent. I am extremely happy and grateful to be here … I know this is no small achievement. I have not forgotten how special this moment is and what it represents to our community, so I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
Creed III opens in theaters nationwide on Friday, and it’s a fresh start for Adonis Creed. He finally stepped out of the shadow of his father Apollo and Rocky Balboa, whose legacy loomed over the first two films (Sylvester Stallone decided Creed II would be his last).
Jonathan Majors, who plays the powerful villain Kong the Conqueror in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantum of Solace, stars alongside Jordan in Creed III, and honored his dear friend at a ceremony on Wednesday.
“I love my brother,” Majors said during his speech. “I watched him get up, smile, be grateful and keep his heart open. I watched him move honestly, every round.”
“It takes a long time to move the world the way he does, and I watch him, admire him, and he encourages me,” he continued.
Jordan’s star became the 2,751st star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the motion picture category.
