  • Black Mirror series creator says, “It’s the Marvel-DC crossover no one saw coming.”

Netflix’s Anthology series Black Mirror is anything but predictable, and keeping with the nature of the show, an unforeseen superhero crossover is coming to season 5 of Black Mirror. An exclusive first look released by Entertainment Weekly shows Marvel's Avengers: Endgame star and the newly crowned Captain America, Anthony Mackie (The Falcon) and DC's Aquaman actor Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Black Manta), facing off against each other. Black Mirror series creator Charlie Brooker tells Entertainment Weekly, "It’s the Marvel-DC crossover no one saw coming."

Indeed, a comic-book crossover in Black Mirror was least expected. While Brooker did not divulge any details about what we should expect from the episode, the Black Mirror-treatment of it would suggest something on the lines of the dark side of pop-culture obsession.

Season 5 of Black Mirror has been due for quite sometime now. We haven’t heard much about the show since a feature-length interactive Black Mirror episode ‘Bandersnatch’ was released back in December. As of now, there is no release date for the new Black Mirror season. If you haven’t yet seen the previous episode, you can read our season 4 episodic commentary here and here.
