Men in Black is getting the reboot treatment, and in the lead we have none other than the God of Thunder himself, Chris Hemsworth. You can check out the first set pics from the flick below. In them Hemsworth is sporting a beardless face with a nice conservative haircut and suit.
Hemsworth always brought it as Thor is the MCU, but I think he’s best when he gets a chance to flex his comedic muscles. Just take a look at the underwhelming comedy reboots Ghostbusters: Answer the Call and the Ed Helms starring Vacation. And of course we can’t forget Thor: Ragnarok, which, thanks to director Taika Waititi, is the funniest and best of the Thor films.
Speaking of Ragnarok, Hemsworth will once again be starring with Tess Thompson, who plays his partner in MIB4; so, yeah, that’s awesome. This time around we’ll get to see how the British branch of MIB operates. Other than the location, not much is known about the plot, but I’m guessing some aliens are going to be doing some stuff they shouldn’t and our heroes with stop them.
F. Gary Gray is taking over the directing reins, with a script from Iron Man‘s Art Marcum and Matt Holloway.
There haven’t been any sightings of anyone else suited up, but we will be sure to bring them to you when they appear. Thompson’s character might not be suited up right away – apparently she plays a civilian who knows the Men In Black exist and wants to join. That will be a fun dynamic to explore for everyone.
Men in Black 4 is set to hit theaters May 17, 2019.
