Since production on Men In Black 3 first began, the big-budget sequel has been plagued by production issues, from scripts rewrites to shooting delays. Rightfully so, fans of the series have started to worry about the impending film's quality.

But images that surfaced on The Daily Mail showcase a time-traveling Agent J (played by Will Smith) with a young Agent K (Josh Brolin), and the pics could instill some much-needed confidence into those anticipating MIB3.

Much of the film's plot will take place in the past as Smith's character has to go back to the year 1969 to stop an alien named Boris the Biker (played by Flight of the Conchords' Jermaine Clement) from killing Agent K before he can become Tommy Lee Jones, basically.

We can't tell anything concrete from these images except that Brolin looks eerily like Jones. The pictures below only strengthen the uncanniness.

Men In Black also stars Emma Thompson, Alice Eve, and Rip Torn, and hits theaters on May 25, 2012.
