We want to see more of Michael B. Jordan shirtless.

Period.

There's certainly not enough of his hot body in the recently released trailer for Creed, his new drama in the Rocky franchise.

"How good does his back look in that trailer?" Jordan's Fantastic Four co-star Kate Mara gushed when I chatted with the two of them at Comic-Con.

The trailer does feature some of his muscled back and shoulders but just a one-second glimpse of his torso.

"I got in shape," a seemingly embarrassed Jordan said. "It's pretty cool."

Warner Bros.

He put on a whopping 24 pounds of muscle for the role. He plays Apollo Creed's son, an aspiring boxer being trained by—you guessed it—Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone).

"Diet and exercise!" Jordan said of training for Creed. "Honestly, diet has a lot to do with it and lots of water."

Mara cracked, "He was so annoying during our movie—every 30 minutes he was eating something.

"Literally in the middle of takes, I would just be eating food," Jordan explained. "Chicken and rice and broccoli—a lot of it."

Fantastic Four is in theaters Aug. 7. You'll have to wait a bit longer for Creed because its release isn't until Nov. 25.
