Pierce Brosnan to Play Dr. Fate in BLACK ADAM Movie

According to The Hollywood Reporter, former James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan has been cast in the role of Dr. Fate in BLACK ADAM.

Brosnan will star opposite of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's title role and is the final member of the Justice Society to be cast. 

Per THR: 

"Brosnan, known for being one of only a handful of actors to inhabit the James Bond mantle, is the last key member of the roll call for the production that will feature the big-screen debut of the Justice Society, DC’s precursor to the Justice League that takes a familial and multi-generational approach to heroics. Already suited up are Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, and Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone.

"Brosnan will play Kent Nelson, aka the good Dr. Fate, a son of an archeologist who was taught sorcery skills and given the magical Helmet of Fate. The character, created by Gardner Fox and Howard Sherman, is one of DC’s oldest characters, having first appeared in 1940’s More Fun Comics #5."

BLACK ADAM is scheduled to begin filming in Atlanta next month.
