Following their fantastic work together in Thor: Ragnarok, Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson have reunited again for Men in Black 4. Hemsworth shared the first look at the new Men in Black film on his social media accounts, posting a photo from the set and a video featuring both Hemsworth and Thompson.
Thompson was cast in the film in March to star alongside Hemsworth, who showed off his comedic chops in Ghostbusters and Ragnarok. The new film is expected to take the MIB organization on a more global scale compared to the earlier films. UPDATE: The new official title reflects that: The movie is going to be called Men In Black International, according to Collider.
Here’s a look at Hemsworth and Thompson on the set:
