Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson were absolutely badass in Thor: Ragnarok, even managing to chuck in a few laughs along the way.

So you can imagine that fans were even more delighted to hear that this Marvel superhero duo would be coming back to the big screen in a very different way - turns out Thompson and Hemsworth will be the suit-wearing, alien-fighting team in the upcoming Men In Black reboot.

While the film will have some very big boots to fill, in terms of those vacated by Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, the remake will be directed by Fate of the Furious filmmaker F. Gary Gray and written by the blokes that brought us Iron Man, Matt Holloway and Art Marcum.

Oh, and it'll have some fella called Steve Spielberg as executive producer.

Sounds like we're in good hands.

We'll just have to twiddle our thumbs until the release date of 14 June 2019, but luckily Chris Hemsworth has provided a little update on what's to be expected.


The Aussie actor told Variety: "We're developing the script now. We're basically trying to put a lot of humor in to it like the previous ones.

"These are obviously some big, big shoes to fill, so we're working our butts off on it to make something pretty epic and fun. They're trying to change up the locations, make it feel unique and different to the last ones as well.

"So I think you might even see some different countries, maybe. Some different cities than you've seen in the previous Men In Black movies."

The Hollywood Reporter says that instead of reviving the beloved agents K and J, we're going to get new characters for Hemsworth and Thompson to play, and get an expanded look at the secret government agency that protects earth from freaky aliens.

But if that isn't your flavour then there's more Men In Black stuff that's been rumoured.

When Sony Pictures' system was hacked in 2014, documents revealed that the movie studio was planning on a crossover between MIB and the Jump Street movies involving Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill.

Now that would be an interesting movie to see come to fruition.

Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones haven't ruled out returning for a fourth movie in the franchise, either. Jones told CNN: "It is easy to pick up where we left off. We know what we are doing, we know how to do it. It's just a hell of a lot of fun."

There was room left open for a MIB 4 at the end of the third chapter. Never say never.
