The film Men in Black: International is indeed a spin-off from the previous MIB films. Therefore, the story is not directly related. In addition, most of the characters in this film are also new. Including, the main character: Agent H. Who has a very handsome face and intelligent brain. Which is physically very fitting played by Chris Hemsworth.
Apart from the physical aspect, according to Hemsworth, Agent H’s personality is also not much different from himself in the real world. Which is funny, agile, charming, and a little arrogant. Therefore, he admitted that he really enjoyed his role this time.
For Hemsworth himself, his role as an MIB agent, you could say, is a symbol of transition: From his figure who is already attached to a superhero character (Thor in Avengers) to an ordinary human being. However, with an ability that is no less great.
In fact, according to Hemsworth, his role as Agent H is much more comfortable. Because he only needed to wear a neat suit. No more cloaks or superhero costumes. That’s tricky. Not to mention if it is added with a prosthetic stomach to display the fat figure of Thor. Like in the last Avengers: Endgame (2019) movie.
Joining the MIB franchise, in fact, was never expected by Hemsworth before. When the first Men in Black film was released in 1997, Elsa Pataky’s husband was only 14 years old. Alias is still stupid. And don’t know the world of acting at all.
Therefore, being able to play in this well-known franchise is, in fact, an honor for him. Moreover, Liam Hemsworth’s brother had the opportunity to be the successor to Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. Which are two veteran actors from Hollywood.
Even though they never met in person during the production process of this MIB film, for Hemsworth, the characters of Agents J and K, played by Smith and Jones, will still be alive. However, he did not wish to repeat or imitate them. The goal is to move forward together. While doing something different.
