Pierce Brosnan to Play Doctor Fate in ‘Black Adam’

by @HolocronJosh for @DCMotherbox

Pierce Brosnan has been tapped to play Doctor Fate in the upcoming DC film ‘Black Adam’ starring Dwayne Johnson.

Brosnan is perhaps best known for playing James Bond in ‘The World is Not Enough’ and ‘Tomorrow Never Dies’, and was the last actor to play 007 before Daniel Craig inherited the role. He has also starred in ‘Mamma Mia’ and ‘The Thomas Crown Affair’. More recently, Brosnan can be seen in the Eurovision Song Contest film for Netflix.

Brosnan will play Doctor Fate, aka Kent Nelson, a character derived from the comics and who was given the Helmet of Fate. He will star alongside Dwayne Johnson, the lead actor, and the film is scheduled to begin production this April.

‘Black Adam’ has already signed on many big names, including Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, and Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone.

This casting comes just one day after the news that Helen Mirren will play the villain in the upcoming Shazam! 2 film. In the comics, Shazam and Black Adam are arch rivals, so expect to see these two upcoming films intersect in some way.

Although it has no current release date, Black Adam is expected to release sometime in 2022.
