'Black Mirror' series five: new cast members announced
Anthony Mackie and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II will star in the next series of Charlie Brooker's dystopian sci-fi
Anthony Mackie and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II have reportedly been cast in the upcoming series of Black Mirror.
The news that Mackie, who plays Falcon in Avengers: Infinity War, and Abdul-Mateen II, who plays the villain Black Manta in Aquaman, will both star in the Emmy Award-wining sci-fi series is welcome, since there have not yet been any official updates about a new season from Netflix.
All we know so far is that Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, a groundbreaking "Choose-Your-Own-Adventure" style one-off episode, was not a replacement for a full series.
Each episode of Black Mirror is a standalone story with a different cast and is not yet known whether Mackie and Abdul-Mateen II will even feature in the same episode.
Black Mirror is an anthology series that focuses on what happens when the relationship between humans and technology goes wrong.
