Michael B. Jordan has teamed up with Sony to promote the PlayStation 5, and the star calls for an old game to make a modern comeback.
Actor and producer Michael B. Jordan has teamed up with Sony to promote the PlayStation 5, and he thinks the console needs Marvel vs Capcom 2. Jordan is a young actor who has risen to prominence for his roles in Hollywood blockbusters like Chronicle, Creed, and Black Panther. Marvel vs Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes is a crossover fighting game from Capcom that was released in 2000, and it has since been released on a number of consoles over the span of a few years.
Michael B. Jordan has kept his finger on the pulse of popular culture, which has contributed to his becoming a household name around the world. His performance as Adonis Creed in Creed, a spinoff of the Rocky franchise which co-stars Sylvester Stallone, was lauded for its emotion and authenticity. Jordan trained hard for the role and actually got knocked out filming the movie’s finale, helping to establish him as an intensely driven performer. Jordan will also be producing a film based on DC Comics hero Static Shock, a character with a long history in comics and cartoons. Many of Jordan’s projects, including both Creed and Static Shock, involve real-world themes of race relations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has teamed up with Sony to promote the PlayStation 5 via a video on the star’s Instagram, showing him play next-gen titles like Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Jordan discusses his history with the PlayStation brand, and gives particular praise to the console’s graphics and DualSense controller. In a separate post, Jordan also explains that he wants to see Marvel vs Capcom 2, a crossover fighting game from the early 2000s, on the next-gen system. He writes, “We gotta figure out how to bring back Marvel Vs Capcom 2.”
Michael B. Jordan isn’t the only celebrity who has gotten involved in this week’s launch of next-generation consoles. Last month Microsoft sent rapper Snoop Dogg an Xbox Series X fridge, filled with gin and orange juice, for his 49th birthday. The fridge is modeled after the next-gen console, and the inside contained both an actual Xbox Series X and a cake also in the shape of Microsoft’s newest piece of hardware. Actor and WWE legend Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson also recently teamed up with Microsoft to donate a number of Xbox Series X consoles to children’s hospitals. 20 children’s hospitals across America received customized “Rock” consoles for use by the young patients.
Michael B. Jordan has become a pop-culture icon for his roles such as Adonis Creed and Black Panther villain Killmonger. This makes his partnership with Sony to promote the PlayStation 5 a smart decision, but the associated video seems quite genuine. The actor’s association with Marvel also makes his mention of Marvel vs Capcom 2 very fitting, and the fighting game’s fans would no doubt love to see the title on PS5. Citing a long history of playing Sony’s consoles, Jordan’s support of the PlayStation 5 is sure to gain the attention of many gamers.
