How Tessa Thompson Is Preparing For Her Return In Michael B. Jordan’s Creed 3

Tessa Thompson has been receiving praise for her performance in one of Netflix’s best films in 2021, Passing. Aside from that, though, she’s been busy with other projects that are awaiting release or are in the midst of production. One of those projects is Michael B. Jordan’s directorial debut, Creed III, in which she returns as Bianca Taylor. Getting back into the world of the Rocky franchise required some preparation on Thompson’s part, though, and the star recently spilled about what she’s done to prepare for the upcoming sequel.

The reunion between Tessa Thompson and Michael Jordan has been a long time coming, as fans have been eager to see the on-screen couple again. Though the wait has been long, the pandemic allowed for the co-stars to have a longer prep time, which worked out for Michael B. Jordan as a first-time director. It proved to be beneficial for Tessa Thompson, too, as she had to reconnect with Creed III’s Rocky legacy. The Thor: Love and Thunder star opened up to The Wrap about what her preparation for the sequel was like, and it seems to have involved some rewatches:

I hadn’t seen the first and second ‘Creed’ [films] since they came out, so I went back and watched both those films because Mike and I have been working a lot on the scenes. It was such a trip to watch them because I didn’t think of them, even when we were making them, necessarily as contributing to the Rocky franchise. I mean, when we made the first one, it was Ryan Coogler’s second film? Third film? He’s an independent filmmaker. When I made ‘Thor: Ragnarok,’ Taika came from the indie world. So even inside of these franchise spaces, I’ve typically worked with people that make it feel pretty small.
