Chris Hemsworth has traded his superhero costume for a suit in “Men in Black 4.” The actor will still be protecting Earth from hostile aliens in the upcoming film, but he will be doing it with some fancy guns rather than a magical hammer.

Hemsworth was spotted in his new costume on the production set of the untitled “Men in Black” film. Pictures of the actor posted on JustJared show the actor wearing a black suit, tie, white shirt, and black sunglasses. This is the typical attire of the organisation that monitors alien activity of Earth, and protects it when the need arises.

Filming is currently taking place in London, where Hemsworth was also spotted. The plot of the film is currently being kept under wraps, but from the pictures it is clear that Hemsworth will be playing an agent.

The other cast members of the film are Tessa Thompson, Rafe Spall, Liam Neeson, and Kumail Nanjiani.

The first movie from the franchise was released in 1997. The main characters of that film were Kay (Tommy Lee Jones) and Jay (Will Smith), and the two characters continued to play the lead role in the subsequent films.

The most recent film from the franchise, the third iteration, was released in 2012. Josh Brolin played the role of a Young Agent K in that film, and the plot of the movie involved time travel.

None of the characters from the previous movies are expected to make an appearance in the upcoming film, which means that this is a spin-off with a completely different set of characters and storyline. Will the movie show the British office of the organisation?

The untitled “Men in Black” movie is being directed by F. Gary Gray. Gray is known for directing movies like “The Italian Job” and “The Negotiator.”
