Chris Hemsworth Trades MCU For MIB In First Men In Black Set Photos


Here come the Men in Black, galaxy defenders…

Production has officially commenced for Sony’s upcoming reboot and to prove it, Just Jared (h/t CBM) has relayed the first set pics of a sharp-suited Chris Hemsworth, who’s clearly traded the MCU for the MIB.

The Avengers: Infinity War actor was pictured with his black suit and black Ray Bans on, and while he’ll inevitably share the screen with a host of A-list talent, Hemsworth was the only one needed for this particular sequence, which appears to involve some sort of investigation into a local case.

Headed up by director F. Gary Gray (The Fate of the Furious), we know Men in Black features a script from Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, the duo best known for their work on Iron Man. Liam Neeson, Kumail Nanjiani and Rafe Spall of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom are among the ensemble cast, but perhaps most exciting of all is the Thor: Ragnarok reunion that’s about to transpire, what with Valkyrie herself, Tessa Thompson, expected to rub shoulders with Marvel’s God of Thunder next summer.

So while there’s been a lot of fuss concerning Avengers 4 and Thor’s last hurrah, we can at least take solace in the fact that 2019 will serve up another comedic performance from Chris Hemsworth. Which, after the back-to-back release of Ghostbusters (Kevin) and the spectacular Ragnarok (Thor Odinson), is almost worth the price of admission alone.

Sony’s Men in Black will once again defend Earth from a slew of intergalactic threats when the F. Gary Gray-directed reboot blasts its way into theaters in time for June 14th, 2019.
