Marvel stars Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson are starring in F. Gary Gray’s Men In Black spinoff and while the film won’t make any major changes to the franchise as much as expand it, but it looks Men in Black: International is going to make a few tweaks in the original organization’s history.

Men in Black: International production designer Charles Wood just recently spoke in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, and during the discussion, he revealed that the Men in Black spinoff would take fans to when the agency began more or less a century ago with branches in major cities around the globe. This is forty years than the agency’s origin revealed in Columbia Pictures original Men in Black trilogy.

"Whereas the original look of Men in Black was sort of set in the 1960s," Wood explained in his interview with the entertainment news outlet. “We’re actually taking it back in time and saying that International exists in many cities around the world, and maybe even started a century ago.”

The globe-trotting doesn’t come as much of a surprise. The premise has Men In Black: International with London-based duo Agent H (Chris Hemsworth) and Agent M (Tessa Thompson) finding themselves involved in murder mystery sending them in a mission around the globe.

Men in Black’s also dabbled in time-travel as well. In Men in Black 3, Boris the Animal, Agent K’s (Tommy Lee Jones)old enemy,  escapes from prison and travels back in time to kill the agent at a younger age so that the Boglodites can attack the earth.
