After being spotted filming something fun in Venice earlier this week, Pom Klementieff (Avengers: Endgame; Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2) has shared her entry for this week’s AGBO Superhero League trash talk video, which involves her singing a song, titled “Au Revoir Chris Hemsworth,” which, as you can expect, hilariously rips apart her Avengers co-star.
The original song, which pays homage to Serge Gainsbourg’s “Laisse Tomber Les Filles,” was co-written by her and her Mission: Impossible 7 co-star Simon Pegg, who also directed the short video. In addition to Hemsworth, she also throws in a few digs at fellow league members and co-stars Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie, Tom Holland, Chris Pratt, and Ryan Reynolds.
If the hysterical lyrics weren’t enough, she really drops the hammer at the end, singing “One thing I’m certain of, and I’m sorry to break your heart, but my team is better than yours.” as the camera pans out to a badass shot of her new Mission: Impossible team of Tom Cruise, Rebecca Ferguson, and Simon Pegg; who she’s currently shooting with in Venice.
Mission: Impossible 7 & 8 are headlined by Tom Cruise (Top Gun: Maverick) as IMF ace Ethan Hunt, as well as fellow returning stars Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible – Fallout) as Ilsa Faust, Simon Pegg (Mission: Impossible – Fallout) as Benji Dunn, Ving Rhames (Mission: Impossible – Fallout) as Luther Stickell, Vanessa Kirby (Mission: Impossible – Fallout) as the White Widow and Angela Bassett as Erica Sloane. Newcomers to the storied action franchise include Hayley Atwell (Avengers: Endgame), Pom Klementieff (Avengers: Endgame), Shea Whigham (Joker) and Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: Dark Phoenix), who is rumored to be playing the villain. Henry Czerny (Sharp Objects) has also been confirmed to reprise his role as Eugene Kittridge from the first film.
There isn’t much information regarding who else will make up Ethan Hunt’s team for his seventh and eighth adventures, but fans still holding out hope that some combination of Jeremy Renner (William Brandt), Paula Patton (Jane Carter) and/or Maggie Q (Zhen Lei) will also return. There have also been rumblings that the likes of Henry Cavill (August Walker) and Alec Baldwin (Alan Hunley) may also be back in some capacity as McQuarrie recently teased, “Any character, dead or alive, is fair game to return.“
Both sequels are expected to film back-to-back, with Mission: Impossible 7 set to light the fuse in theaters on November 19, 2021, while its sequel, Mission: Impossible 8, will open the following fall on November 4, 2022.
