July 28th, 2018 by Marc Comments

Some fresh news from the new Men In Black movie today, including the first bit of connective tissue to what went before in previous movies.

Actress Emma Thompson is back in the new movie as Agent O, the chief in the MiB organisation, previously seen in Men In black III.

The principal cast will feature Thor Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson and will see Liam Neeson as the boss of the branch of MiB the movie will be set around and Kumail Nanjiani as Pawny, a comedy alien sidekick.

We’ll also see Hot Fuzz star Rafe Spall and street-dancers (?!) Les Twins, aka Laurent Nicolas Bourgeois and Larry Nicolas Bourgeois… we have no idea either.

While we don’t know the plot of the movie, a previous rumour (here) has this to say: “The film will see Tessa’s character, Em, try to prove herself by joining the London MIB and is paired with the former ace Agent H, played by Hemsworth. The pair become involved in a murder mystery that has them tavelling the globe.”


Fate of the Furious – that’s Furious 8 here in the UK – director F. Gary Gray is helming with Iron Man screenwriters Matt Holloway and Art Marcum penning.

The Men In Black will save the world again on  June 14th, 2019, release.

In related news, Tessa Thompson has shared behind-the-scenes images of herself and Chris Hemsworth as Men In Black. Check them out below:

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
