Your favorite Asgardians are teaming up for a new project, but far away from the world of Norse mythology and Marvel comics. Back in March, Variety reported that Thor: Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson were in talks to appear together in a new Men in Black spinoff film that will premiere in May 2019. The God of Thunder and a fierce Valkyrie fighting crime in dapper outfits? Yes, please! And fun fact: Chris isn’t the only Hemsworth brother who Thompson has worked with on a fun sci-fi project . . . she also stars with Luke Hemsworth in HBO’s Westworld!
The writers behind Iron Man are reportedly writing the script, and it will be directed by F. Gary Gray of Straight Outta Compton fame. Unfortunately two of the Men in Black franchise’s biggest stars will not return for the film; neither Will Smith nor Tommy Lee Jones is set to slip into their suits for the spinoff. But don’t worry, there’s still plenty of star power behind the scenes in addition to Hemsworth and Thompson on screen. Check out the cast ahead!
