Los Angeles, USA, Apr 27 (EFE).- Following his roles in Marvel’s Black Panther and Fruitvale Station that have transformed him into a Hollywood blockbuster star, Michael B. Jordan is now preparing for the release of his new action movie Without Remorse.
“As a kid, these are the movies I watched, that I always wanted to be in,” Jordan said during a press conference ahead of the movie’s premiere on Amazon Prime on April 30.
Jordan is the star of the adaptation of Tom Clancy’s novel, a story of revenge and betrayal alongside Jodie Turner-Smith, Lauren London and Colman Domingo.
The 34-year-old Jordan began his television career in the drama series The Wire (2002-2008) and later landed a role in the sports drama series Friday Night Lights (2006-2011).
However, he rose to stardom after he played a black man who gets shot and killed by a police officer in Ryan Coogler’s first feature film Fruitvale Station in 2013.
Coogler once again turned to Jordan to take on the supervillain character in 2018 Black Panther, which grossed over $1.3 billion in revenues worldwide.
By then, Jordan was already well-known thanks to his role in Creed opposite Sylvester Stallone in 2015.
In Without Remorse, Jordan plays US special operations agent John Kelly, one of Tom Clancy’s best-known characters.
After a mission in Syria, Kelly returns to his home country, but his enemies chase him to his home and kill his pregnant woman, a murder for which Kelly will seek revenge and take down anyone who gets in his way.
