Men In Black: International hits theaters June and appears to be doing its own thing with Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson in the lead roles. There’s no Will Smith, no Tommy Lee Jones…heck, there’s not even a Josh Brolin. And director F. Gary Gray didn’t exactly rule out cameo appearances, but he knew the love and affection that fans have for the past leads of the series.
While speaking recently with Entertainment Weekly about the upcoming Men in Black film, F. Gary Gray explained that the upcoming film isn’t meant to replace Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, but rather build out the world and add to the mythology of the Men In Black franchise:
“We went into the project knowing the deep affection we and the fans have for Will and Tommy. We’re not replacing them, simply adding to their team.”
Okay, while that’s not directly talking about potential cameo appearances, let’s dig further into this discussion. Later on in the article, while there’s no quote or attribution to F. Gary Gray as far as cameos go, the author did have this to say:
“As for cameos by certain Earth-born alumni from past installments? Don’t hold your breath — but okay, maybe go ahead and put it on standby.”
Again, that’s not an attribution to F. Gary Gray or even paraphrasing as much as it speculation on the author’s part. But the fact that it’s not an outright “No” could hint that maybe, just maybe, there’s a small possibility that you could get cameos from prior stars in the Men In Black franchise to appear in the next installment. Again, speculation on the author’s part, but the writer does say put holding your breath on standby, so we shall see.
But what do you think? Would you want to see the likes of Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, or other past actors from the franchise make a cameo appearance in Men In Black: International? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

The Superhero Movies Of 2018, Ranked From Worst To Best
2018 has gone by too fast. It seems like yesterday when the beginning of the new year was upon us, and the advent of having so many superhero movies hitting theaters seemed like a dream come true for every fanboy and fangirl. It’s also funny to look back and remember that although we ended up with a whopping nine major theatrical superhero movies, we almost had eleven. Sadly, Fox delayed both Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants to 2019 instead.
Even with those two films delayed, 2018 was still a massive year not just at the box office, but for the continued advancement of the genre on a number of levels. Whether it was through the cultural significance of a film like Black Panther or the exciting animated adventures of Incredibles 2 and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, there was no shortage of exciting superhero stories told on the big screen this year.
Here are the 9 theatrical superhero films of 2018, ranked from worst to best. You can start the gallery by clicking “Next.”
