Pierce Brosnan is taking on his first role as a superhero. The actor has been cast as Dr. Fate in DC and New Line’s “Black Adam” alongside Dwayne Johnson.
Dr. Fate, also known as Kent Nelson, is a founding member of the Justice Society who becomes a being of great power when donning the magical Helmet of Fate. It’s Brosnan’s first role in a superhero movie.
"Black Adam" follows the story of the anti-hero of the same name, played by Johnson. The character of Black Adam first appeared in DC Comics in the 1940s as a power-corrupt villain, and slowly became an anti-hero by the 2000s, known for his disregard of rules and conventions.
Brosnan’s feature credits include four James Bond movies, the Mamma Mia! franchise and The Thomas Crown Affair. He recently starred in the hit Netflix film Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Sagasoon alongside Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams and will be seen in Sony’s live-action retelling of Cinderella in July.
