CREED II stars Michael B. Jordan, Tessa Thompson, and Florian Munteanu made their way to Brazil to chop it up with fans about the film during the Comic Con Experience in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
The trio sat on a panel for a screening of the film before it hits theaters there on January 24, 2019.
We can't lie, Florian is HOT.
While on the CREED II promo trail, we noticed Tessa has worn the color green at several events.TheYBF.com reached out to her stylists, Wayman + Micah, who explained the significance behind the hue. They told us, "Green is the color of the heart chakra. That was Tessa's feeling towards her character in the film, so she really wanted to play that up."
Sweet! She wears it well too.
Pandemonium ensued when MBJ and Florian got up close and personal with fans as they signed autographs and snapped pics.
Tessa, who plays MBJ's on-screen girlfriend, also sat down for the Sony presentation during Comic Con Sao Paulo to chop it up about the boxing film.

At an event with a cause...
YBF stars - Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Angela Bassett, Miss Jay and Alfre Woodard - came together to celebrate five high school students who have excelled academically despite facing extreme adversity both at home and in the classroom at the Children's Defense Fund's 29th annual Beat the Odds Awards ceremony held at the Skirball Cultural Center.
The 60-year-old actress snapped it up with Marian Wright Edelman, President of the Children's Defense Fund, after praising her on stage:
The Oscar nominated actress slayed this one-shouldered LBD. Simple, yet elegant. She will be lending her voice for the new film Bumblebee, which hits theaters December 21st.
Spider-Man: Homecoming star Garcelle Beauvais, "Underground" actress Jurnee Smollett-Bell and "Queen Sugar" star Rutina Wesley hit the stage to speak.
Garcelle had her twins, Jax and Jaid, by her side. They're getting so big.
Jurnee's husband Josiah Bell wasn't far behind.
Jurnee's brother/"Empire" star/singer Jussie Smollett was also in the mix. He hit the stage to honor the students for their accomplishments.
Partying for a cause. Gotta love it.
