- The trailer for “Men in Black: International,” which stars Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson, was just released.
- In one scene, there’s a nod to Hemsworth’s role as Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, when the actor picks up a hammer and throws it at an alien.
- Fans get enough of the reference to the God of Thunder.
The newly released trailer for “Men in Black: International” includes a reference to star Chris Hemsworth’s role as Thor, and fans are here for it.
Hemsworth stars as Agent H in the spin-off of the franchise that started 22 years ago and starred Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. In the movie, the actor suits up alongside Liam Neeson and Tessa Thompson to fight extraterrestrial threats around the world.
At one point in the trailer, Hemsworth’s character comes face to face with an alien, who kicks him to the ground. Agent H then reaches for a conveniently placed hammer and says, “Looks like the tables have turned,” before throwing it at his opponent. It didn’t go as anticipated though, because the alien caught the weapon and Agent H said: “That was an incredible catch.”
Fans took to Twitter to express their joy over seeing Hemsworth once again wielding a hammer.

Many of the reactions were also focused on the movie feeling like an extension of “Thor: Ragnarok,” where Hemsworth and Thompson shared the screen as Thor and Valkyrie. They were even more tweets suggesting new plots for the beloved characters, plus references to the events that transpired in “Avengers: Infinity War.”
you: men in black international
me, an intellectual: the followup to avengers: endgame, where thor and valkyrie are elected earth's intergalactic diplomats so we can avoid catastrophic alien mayhem and tony stark can take a nap pic.twitter.com/Z6m3E5NN6I

I mean, the new Men in Black trailer is cool and all, but I just keep thinking how insensitive it is to play that song. I mean, 'Oh Snap', really? Thor and Valkyrie must be having horrible flashbacks..#MiB #meninblack
