With his time as Thor seemingly coming to a close in Avengers 4, Chris Hemsworth has lined up another potential franchise in Men in Black. After some other projects that didn't pan out, the sci-fi series is returning with an all-new cast that includes Hemsworth and his Thor: Ragnarok co-star Tessa Thompson. Not much is knowm about the movie, but it's been filming and set photos have started to hit the internet. Hemsworth shared his own video from the set, but you're just going to make yourself dizzy trying to find any new details. Check it out.
Simply called MIB, the film is technically a spin-off because it will not see the return of former series leads Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. Instead, Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson are stepping up as Agents H and M, who will no doubt have to prevent some sort of alien catastrophe from destroying the planet. The movie has been filming since July, but few details have emerged. It looks like Hemsworth has taken the lead on sharing moments from the set, such as the first look at himself and Thompson in costume. (White shirts, black ties. What else could it have been?).
Chris Hemsworth's latest post from the set is a video of himself, but those looking for some juicier details might be disappointed. The video features Hemsworth spinning himself and the camera around in a circle, jokingly calling this "doing my own stunts." It's difficult to tell even what the set is, so it looks like we'll have to wait a little while longer to get some stronger facts about the movie.
The goal of MIB is that it will revitalize the Men in Black franchise, which has been stagnant for the last few years. After Men in Black 3, a follow up was in development but it was ultimately dropped. A potential crossover with the 21 Jump Street franchise was also under consideration, and while it would have been bonkers, it likewise never made it out of development. Now Sony is starting fresh with an all-new cast, and it has enlisted F. Gary Gray to direct.
MIB will avoid the question of whether it exists in the same continuity of the previous trilogy, by taking place in the London branch of the MIB. This helps explain why it has an entirely new cast of characters, which include Kumail Nanjiani, Rafe Spall, and Rebecca Ferguson. The movie also features Emma Thompson as a fellow agent and Liam Neeson as the boss of the operation.
MIB is currently scheduled to release on June 14, 2019. That's still almost a year away, so keep yourself busy by going to see movies coming out soon, all of which you can find in our 2018 movie release guide.
