NEW YORK — The “Men in Black” franchise has a new recruit who isn’t a man, but actress Tessa Thompson is fine with keeping the film’s masculine-centred title — for now.
Joined by co-star Chris Hemsworth on a black carpet, Thompson shrugged off the gender issue at the world premiere of “Men in Black: International” on Tuesday in New York.
But if the series continues, Thompson has some ideas for a title change — like ‘People in Black’ or ‘Humans in Black’
She says she hopes society gets to a place “where it’s not noteworthy when women topline these films.”
