    The “Men in Black” franchise has a new recruit who isn’t a man, but actress Tessa Thompson is fine with keeping the masculine-centered film 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.

    “No, I don’t mind,” Thompson said.

    Thompson cited her co-star Emma Thompson, who reprises her role in the series, as a voice of reason when it comes to gender equality and representation.

    “She said something great, like ‘I’ve had the conversation, it takes time.’ I think what she’s speaking to is the fact that sometimes change happens quicker than we have language to describe it,” Thompson said.

    But if the series continues, Thompson has some ideas for a title change.

    “I pitched some ideas like ‘People in Black,’ but that would be ‘PiB,’ which sounds like a sandwich. I pitched ‘Humans in Black,’ which would be ‘HiB,’ which sounds like something you don’t want to get,” Thompson said

    The movie is starring a male and a female agent in this upgrade of the original with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. I don't think it's so ridiculous for Ms. Thompson to make that suggestion, it's not like there isn't a context to it.

    The legends, however, call them "Men in Black" and just because Hollywood wants to screw with things isn't a valid reason to break with tradition.
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.

    What traditions? Those of UFO hunters and other conspiracy theorists? There are much bigger issues to worry about than this.

    Yup, but moonbats always have solutions in search of a problem.

    If you're an associate-producer of the film though, you're trying to make your money back with a tidy profit. So 'People In Black' literally doesn't make sense (cents).

    Smarter alternatives could've been Project Blackbook, Saucer Busters, Flaps Down, Funidentified, Take Me To Your Leader, etc., with the MiB-meme as a prefix.

    Hey! I watch YouTube. Nothing is more important than getting the truth out. Aliens have been visiting this world for millions of years and it has always been the Men in Black (Black Knights in the middle ages) who have defined us and our human sovereignty.

    LOL.

    I liked The X Files in the 90s. I always thought Agents Mulder and Scully were the "Men in Black" on that show, but it got really confusing after the first couple of seasons.
