“It’s the Marvel-DC crossover no one saw coming,” Charlie Brooker said. Sadly, he didn’t follow that up with any context on who they will be playing, or what their episode will be about, although the new trailer released soon afterwards does go some way towards filling in the blanks.
Andrew Scott, Miley Cyrus and more feature in the first footage from the upcoming episodes. Season five is made up of three new episodes, and is set to be released on Wednesday 5th June.
The Black Mirror Twitter account prepared for the trailer reveal by tweeting for the first time since January.
“Is this a bad time? You seem distracted,” the message read.
