They started their partnership as Thor and Valkyrie in "Thor: Ragnarok," and were announced to be re-teaming for the upcoming "Men in Black" spinoff. They'll be playing new characters, in what will reportedly be more of an ensemble cast, with F. Gary Gray ("The Fate of the Furious") said to be directing.
Before the "Avengers: Infinity War" L.A. premiere, Variety asked Chris Hemsworth about re-teaming with his "Thor: Ragnarok" co-star for the "Men in Black" movie:
"She's incredible. Wildly talented. Great sense of humor. Great heart. A lot of fun. We had the best time on 'Thor.' So to have the opportunity to work together again was a no-brainer."

He's a friend from work! Excited as can be. https://t.co/KdRHRlus2m
