Sony recently released the first promo poster for the new Men in Black movie that appears to be a spin-off. As you can tell, not much is shown outside of the return of sunglasses and what appears to be a room of some kind reflecting in them. The poster also confirms a release in Summer 2019.
I loved Men in Black when it first came out. I was just a kid, but it was a really fun movie. I don’t remember really caring for the second one, and I never did see the third. I’m torn on how I feel about the spin-off film that Sony is planning on doing with Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson. On the one hand, I’m sick of all these reboots, revivals, sequels, and spin-offs, but on the other hand, it was a fun premise and these are two great actors.
According to CB, the film takes place in the same universe and will not be a reboot. Thompson and Hemsworth are said to be new characters, but Agent J and Agent K will have existed and will be considered canon.
Men in Black will be directed by F. Gary Gray from Fate of the Furious and the script was penned by Iron Man writers Matt Holloway and Art Marcum. The film is currently expected to be released on June 14, 2019.
