As the trailer for Men in Black: International dropped on Thursday (December 20), so did the mouths of dozens of bisexual Twitter users, admiring the sight of Tessa Thompson in a bob and a suit.

The trailer announced the galaxy defenders are back—this time in the form of Thompson and Chris Hemsworth, who previously starred together in Thor: Ragnarok.

The bisexual energy in the trailer for Men in Black: International is palpable. Not only do Hemsworth and Thompson appear to be shooting bisexual flag-coloured laser weapons, but it also features a scene of Thompson suiting up and flirting with her boss, the unflappable Emma Thompson.

In this highly-anticipated sequel to the franchise which originally starred Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, the agents are tasked with missions spanning the entire planet.

“Hopefully we’re doing the franchise proud. It’s a lot more action than I think you’ve seen in the other Men in Black films. It is global in scope, it’s set here in the UK which is super fun, there’s a lot of fun, English humour. As agents, they also travel elsewhere in the world,” Thompson said in a recent interview with Entertainment.ie.

Ahead of the film’s release in June 2019, the Men in Black: International trailer has certainly made Thompson’s bisexual fans—and the LGBT+ community as a whole—proud and excited.

“Tessa Thompson wearing a suit in men in black. straight girls going✈️ extinct across the globe as we speak.” wrote one Twitter user.

“i don’t think i’ve felt this bisexual in my life i am SO ready for the new men in black” wrote another.

A few people took care to explain to all the heterosexuals out there why the combination of Hemsworth and Thompson is so explosive.

One Twitter user wrote: “Bisexual culture? Bisexual culture is Men In Black. Why? Being able to watch Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson in suits, handling big guns.”

Others put it in more personal terms: “The trailer for Men in Black really got me excited! In the sense that I’m very attract to both Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson. This movie is going to turn everyone in America bisexual and I’m okay with it.”

While for others, Men in Black: International trailer’s ode to bisexuality is a matter of fact: “Men in black international is the bisexual agenda.”

Men in Black: International criticism shut down

Not all comments were positive. Some people lamented Smith’s absence from the film.

Someone even had the gall to entirely question the need for a new Men in Black movie in direct response to Chris Hemsworth’s tweet advertising the trailer, asking: “Who asked for this s**t?”

But the dissenter was promptly put in his place, when another Twitter user clapped back: “Every bisexual ever,” to widespread support.

“Hold on! Add lesbians. And gays. In fact, most of the Rainbow,” another person added.
