Actors from the Marvel Cinematic Universe appearing in 'Black Mirror' is a bigger crossover than 'Avengers: Infinity War' and 'Avengers: Endgame'. (Sorry, had to do it)
First of all, 'Black Mirror' Season five is officially less than a month away, yay! We've been waiting for such a long time and honestly, 'Bandersnatch' was just not enough.
Here's the teaser for the fifth season which will premiere on Netflix on June 5th.
The first thing you notice is obviously Falcon aka Sam Wilson from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So, with him joining the cast of 'Black Mirror' and appearing in one of the episodes this season, we had enough actors who've appeared in MCU who have also been a part of the Black Mirror cast (or Black Mirror Cinematic Universe?) to come up with a list.
Here we go:1. Anthony Mackie
Falcon, or should I say, Captain America, is going to be the lead in one of the three new stories coming with the fifth season of 'Black Mirror'. Anthony Mackie being a part of the cast, is also reviving the whole 'Marvel vs DC' conversation since Yahya Abdul-Mateen II from 'Aquaman' is also a part of the show. I'm excited to see what kind of existential crisis his episode has in store for us.2. Hayley Atwell
Agent Carter needs no introduction and actually, even Hayley Atwell as well. Playing the lead in 'Be Right Back', she made the already emotional premise of the episode come to life beautifully. This specific episode is one of the highest rated episodes in the series and I'm guessing a lot of credit goes to Hayley for sure.3. Daniel Kaluuya
Before appearing in Oscar-nominated movies, Daniel Kaluuya was the lead of the second ever episode of 'Black Mirror' - '15 Million Merits'. The 'Black Mirror' episode was somewhat okay but he gave one of the most memorable scenes in 'Black Panther'.
4. Letitia Wright
Another 'Black Panther' and 'Black Mirror' star, Letitia Wright appeared in the episode 'Black Museum'. Pretending to be a tourist with a few hours to kill while her car gets charged, she goes to the museum with one aim - avenging her late father. Along with the main plot, that episode has so many other stories, and that's why it's easily one of the best episodes of the series.5. Benedict Wong
I actually found out today that Wong from 'Doctor Strange' (and 'Infinity War' and 'Endgame') has also appeared in 'Black Mirror'. He played a police detective in one of the most brutal episodes of the series ever - 'Hated In The Nation'.
Bonus - Miley Cyrus
I was planning on including this as a joke since the God of Thunder is her brother in law, but surprisingly, she did voice one line in a scene in 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2'.
Well, that was a surprise.
