“Thor: Ragnarok” duo Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson are set to team up again for the upcoming film which serves as a continuation of the series but with a whole different cast of characters.
Nanjiani will reportedly portray a wisecracking alien and the partner to both Hemsworth and Thompson in the film. They join Liam Neeson who is attached to play the head of the M.I.B.’s UK division.
