New Men In Black is set to become the People In Black... or something

11.25.2015

It's going to be awfully hard for the MEN IN BLACK to maintain its title when, in the future, it's very likely women are going to be part of the equation. I mean, I guess you can still call them the Men In Black, but it'll be factually incorrect, and how can one take an organization like that seriously?

But that's the world we live in and that appears to be what's on the horizon with producer Laurie MacDonald talking to Newsbeat and informing them, "There will be a prominent woman in black in the fourth [film]."

Who that woman will be remains to be seen, but I wouldn't be surprised to see them pull the trigger on changing up the partner dynamic in such a way.

Now before some go on their rants about gender-bending, think about it. This makes sense. We've already seen three films of two dudes tracking aliens... so what do you want them to replace it with - more of the same? At least this brings something different to the table and allows for some exploration of a new relationship. I'm all for it.

Looks like this will be the first MIB movie I won't see in theaters. Very stupid because the first 3 movies had women in MIB and the first movie even showed one becoming J's new partner at the end of the movie. The name change to me just seems like some idiot feminist who really isn't a feminist complained that the movie title was sexist. This world we live in is just so sensitive and stupid. Can we get that 21 Jump Stree crossover instead please because this really pisses me off.

The MIB have their fair share of women and non-human/aliens (i.e. the worm guys, Frank The Pug, Michael Jackson) in their mix and even include a female boss in the third movie. The name is just traditionally acceptable. I mean, why would you even feel pressured to call them other than Men In Black regardless of their gender and species diversity when you still call that other organization the Central Intelligence Agency, regardless of their non-existent intelligence? Hmm?

Do What is Best...

I would start again with a new cast and sure a woman can/would be apart of the film as I expected to see in the 2nd after how the first Men in Black ended, but give Kristen Wiig a call when she's finished GirlBusters.

PC Police to the rescue!

Why do people cow tow to these idiots, they do realize they are the minority view point, at least for not. If people keep trying not to offend their frail sensibilities this world is going to go to shit fast. So better make sure you take out black as that could be offensive, and women is offensive as that is exclusionary, so it better be something like, Beings who self identify and wear whatever the hell they feel like. Rolls right off the tongue.

Men In Black is actually a genderless title...

I know it's hard to understand with the word MEN in the title but it is a colloquialism that just means people in black referencing shadowy/mysterious figures. I don't mind they are giving us a new cast with a female lead, that is cool. But don't change the title. MIB is the name of the agency too...

Just leave it at the trilogy. Sony is desperate at this point. Don't get me started on the Ghostbusters reboot.

This should tie in nicely with all those reports of UFO witnesses being visited by mysterious men in black. Oh.

See? Now it makes sense.

Ghostbusting as a job was always done by 4 guys. MIB is an organization that has always had women. And I'm sure that, when the 1st movie ended, people thought that a sequel would focus on AGENTS J & L.

Is there an audience after Men In Black 3? Nevertheless, this article is very incoherent. The writer should summarize the article better than this. It's all over the place. It should be structured like an essay - an introduction, a body, and a conclusion. The overall structure of this article was laid out like I said (introduction, body, conclusion) but somehow it feels all over the place.

I think a lot of people forgot that they have already showed women in the agency in the other films, and Linda Fiorentino did become an agent in the end of the first film. They should bring her back, and cast her alongside Tommy Lee Jones if Will doesn't come back. Instead of putting a gender in the title they should just focus on the agency. Maybe call it the Black Agency, or something along those lines.

Changing genders doesn't automatically make for "bringing something different to the table"
The idea of equality (in my eyes) is that we see everyone as equal, two mis-matched female partners to me is no different from two mis-matched male partners. I couldn't give a shit what gender they both are, male or female, one of either. Who cares as long as it's funny?

There has been at least one female agent in MIB if I'm not mistaken. Doesn't the first film end with Linda Fiorentinos character taking over from Tommy Lee Jones as J's partner? But the question remains whether we need another sequel in this franchise at all.

Not sure if they need to change the title. But I'm all for changing up the genders. Give us something completely new with two new characters, a male/female duo. There's really no logical reason why both characters need to be male. So far in the three movies it's been established that women do in fact work for MIB, so why wouldn't any of them be an actual agent?
