Chris Hemsworth, fresh off his wondrous work in Thor: Ragnarok that saw him soar past Evans to become the runner-up Chris (Pine shall reign supreme), is in early negotiations to join the Men in Black spin-off.

The Hollywood Reporter exclusive claims that Sony are hoping to go the Jurassic World route and revive a tried & tested franchise with a new cast in the hopes of lightning striking once more. Overall, the Men in Black trilogy, headlined by Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, has made more than $1.5bn worldwide.

Did anyone else think the third film was actually pretty good? It had Bill Hader, Emma Thompson, Michael Stuhlbarg and Jemaine Clement doing a Tim Curry impression. What wasn’t there to love?

Anyhoo, the Hollywood Reporter also cites sources who say that ‘the new combination of characters involve a white character, a black woman, and an older man.’ So start speculating as to who else is joining the cast. Too much to hope for a Ragnarok reunion with Tessa Thompson? Ooh, how about Janelle Monae?

And, of course, it will be mandatory that Hemsworth also rap the theme song, right?
