Chris Hemsworth Helps Stunt Double Get ‘Men in Black’ Ready

Posted by August 25, 2018 Comment

Even though it seems like things are still being kept hush-hush about the Men in Black reboot/sequel/addition Chris Hemsworth is filming right now, that’s not stopping the Aussie star from sharing some videos to his Twitter and Instagram account.

Like this morning, a video showing Hemsworth assisting his longtime stunt double Bobby Hanton get ready for the day’s filming. “Behind the scenes on MIB getting Bobby Hanton camera ready. Unfortunately they didn’t use him that day due to multiple cuts on his face. Nothing a bit of makeup can’t fix,” Hemsworth says of the short video featuring him shaving Hanton’s face:

Hanton has worked on pretty much all of your favorite films and tv series, be they superheroes (like Thor: RagnarokCaptain AmericaWonder Woman) or just popular fare (like Inception, Harry Potter, and Game of Thrones).


Oddly enough, Hanton was also Henry Cavill‘s stunt double in Mission: Impossible – Fallout, which had some pretty fabulous action and death-defying sequences.

While we again, don’t know much about the new Men in Black film, if Hanton is on board, it’s a safe bet that there will be some pretty great stunts coming our way.

Tessa Thompson and Emma Thompson are also on cast, as is Liam NeesonRebecca Ferguson, and Kumail NanjianiF. Gary Gray (Fate of the Furious) is directing.

Men in Black has a tentative release date of June 14th, 2019.
