Here come the Men in Black, galaxy defenders…
Production is now well underway on Sony’s upcoming reboot and to prove it, Chris Hemsworth has shared a new behind the scenes video. Though hardly revealing, we see the Thor: Ragnarok star shaving his stuntman, Bobby Hanton, who’s worked with the actor on a number of films – including all his MCU efforts.
Those hoping to see some footage or even a proper look at what’s in store may have to wait a bit longer, as this video provides none of that, but given that production’s progressing along smoothly, we imagine it’ll be just a matter of time now before some official promo material arrives. After all, the movie’s less than a year away from release, so some hi-res photos should be coming soon.

Of course, Hemsworth won’t be alone in his Men in Black shenanigans, as his Ragnarok co-star Tessa Thompson will be joining him as the duo replace Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones as the leads of the series. That’s not to say that this will be a completely clean reboot, though. Not only are the adventures of Agent J and Agent K from the first three movies still canon to the franchise, but Emma Thomspon will also be reprising her role as MIB head Agent O from 2012’s Men In Black 3.
While the series continues to hold a special place in the hearts of sci-fi fans, there’s yet to be a Men In Black sequel that’s been welcomed with the same excitement as the 1997 original. With that in mind, we’ll see how Hemsworth and the rest of the team fare in recapturing the magic of the first installment when movie number four arrives in theaters next year, on June 14th, 2019.
