Late last month it was confirmed that both Anthony Mackie and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II were enlisted to join season 5 of Charlie Brooker‘s hit anthology series Black Mirror. And now today we have received our very first look at the highly-anticipated season thanks to Entertainment Weekly.
In the still posted below we see both Mackie, most recently seen in Avengers: Endgame, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Aquaman) facing off on a rainy street. “It’s the Marvel-DC crossover no one saw coming,” teases series creator Charlie Brooker.
The fifth season of Black Mirror follows December’s groundbreaking stand-alone film Bandersnatch, which allowed viewers to choose-their-own-adventure. Apart from this first look, details on the upcoming season have been scarce. Miley Cyrus also confirmed her Black Mirror season 5 appearance during an interview with Howard Stern.
Keep it locked here for an official Netflix release date when it surfaces.
