Humans in Black: Star of Men in Black wants the franchise to have a more inclusive name by John Gage | June 12, 2019 07:13 PM Print this article Tessa Thompson, who stars as Agent M in the film "Men in Black: International," said she wants to see the franchise's name changed at some point to make it more inclusive for women.
"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 Tuesday at the movie's premiere.
"I think we can change the name at some point. But the truth is, I think it's really significant, and I hope we can get to the space where it's not noteworthy when women topline these films, and I think a film like this helps us get there."

See the all-women “Ghostbusters”
Hey! Snowflakes! Get over it.
It’s a bad concept.
What are they going to call Little Women? Little People? then the midgets will get mad. We are becomong a ridiculous Country.
Trannies In Black
How about BiB - Beeyotches In Black?
Sounds inclusive to me!
She did NOT play a Human.
IIRC she has a past history of anti-Americanism
And there it is. Hollywoods continued drive to take every franchise and woke it up. Always the same thing, hijack the franchise and use the latest woke version to tell the audience why they were stupid to like the original and how the new poop is much better.
It has killed Star Wars, it is killing Marvel, in some measure it aided in turning Game of Thrones into poop and now it will kill MIB. WellHollywood, go for woke and wake up broke.
another flop like the recent Ghostbusters.
The storyline ran its course with the last Will Smith movie. This one is just an example of how lame Hollywood is in coming up with new ideas.
Thompson addressed her sexuality in an interview published in June 2018, declaring: “In my family you can be anything you want to be. I’m attracted to men and also to women. If I bring a woman home, or a man, we don’t even have to have the discussion”. Though many publications subsequently referred to Thompson as bisexual, she told The Independent in November 2018, “I never said that word, because I dont think in those binaries. I feel like thats important to say, just for me, because thats not the way that I specifically identify.” She also added, “Some people categorised it as coming out or something. And I have never been in, so I dont know what that means.”
Thompson, critical of Hillary Clinton, endorsed Senator Bernie Sanders for President in the 2016 US presidential election.
How about NO!!
I object to the use of the word Black.
Little cis-gendered, hetero-normative, patriarchy-oppressed, female self-identifying person.
