[Michael B. Jordan] he is a big anime fan. He’s always talking about the complexities of friendship mixed with rivalry and all that in these stories. He showed me one of his favorite fights between two friends where they get to the point where everything else seems to falter. In this idea, the battle is external and then internal, and perhaps the next battle is over what is more meta or spiritual.
