The MiB are returning for their fourth appearance, this time at International. Will Hemsworth and Thompson make a comeback in Men in Black 5 if it happens? Here’s what we know about the situation.
Can you tell me what you can anticipate from a prospective Men in Black 5? Men in Black: International, the fourth film in the Men in Black series about spies charged with monitoring extraterrestrial life forms, has finally been released, featuring a number of Marvel Cinematic Universe faves. Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson will be moving into the major roles, replacing franchise veterans Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, who are no longer involved in the project.
Since the release of the first Men in Black film in 1997, the franchise has maintained a strong yet consistent presence. Men in Black II, Men in Black 3, and now Men in Black: International have all followed up on that incredibly successful debut: Men in Black II, Men in Black 3, and now Men in Black: International.
Over the course of the franchise, the universe of the Men in Black has grown exponentially, with new technology being added, the lives of the agents being examined in-depth, new alien life forms being found, and a plethora of other developments. The time has come for a Men in Black 5 sequel to be released.
Which films will be released in the future as part of the Men in the Black franchise? Everything is dependent on the success of International. Here’s all we know so far about Men in Black 5: The Final Chapter.

Men In Black 5 Storyline
Men in Black: International’s plot does not necessarily set the stage for a fifth installment, with the characters remaining in a very basic state by the end of the film. Although it would be intriguing to see additional stories come to life on the big screen in a Men in Black 5, International stands on its own as a complete and cohesive movie. Of all, this was also the case with 1997’s Men in Black, and that picture was essential in establishing the Men in Black series, so never rule out the possibility.
Men In Black 5 Depends On MIB
The success of Men in Black 5 is largely on how well the film International performs; if the film is a financial success, Sony will almost certainly approve the fifth installment. Unfortunately, the early reviews and box office projections aren’t looking well for the film. It has the lowest Rotten Tomatoes score in the franchise’s history, and box office projections have dipped as a result. Despite the fact that the film’s budget is projected to be somewhere in the neighborhood of $110 million, which is modest for a modern tentpole, it might still fail.

Men In Black 5 Release Date
If International is able to pull it off at the international box office (which is a tall order at this point in time), there will still be a bit of a wait before the fifth feature hits cinemas, which is expected to be released in 2017. At the very least, Men in Black 5 would be two years away from being ready for release, and that’s with production hypothetically commencing as soon as the sequel was formally greenlit.
Mib 5 Brings Back Chris Hemsworth And Tessa Thompson.
Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson have proven to be a winning combination in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a number of years, due to their work on Thor: Ragnarok and Avengers: Endgame. Imagine a situation in which these performers reunite for another outing in their MiB finest. It’s not difficult to imagine.
When it comes to the commercial side of things, things become a little murkier. As of now, there is no publicly accessible information on whether Hemsworth and Thompson are legally committed to returning for another installment or whether this was a one-and-done agreement, which means their return for Men in Black 5 may be contingent on renegotiations.
Men In Black Could Reboot
Although it’s unlikely that a straight sequel to International would be made, it’s feasible that Men in Black 5 may be a soft reboot or legacy-quel of some kind. The franchise has previously tried both types of sequels, with International and Men in Black 3 being the most recent examples, and has proven that it is capable of returning after a decade away from the screen. Given the inevitable box office failure of Men in Black 4, it may be a wise decision to have Will Smith back for the fourth installment. Never underestimate the MiB, even if they appear to be silent.
