We have exciting news to report today on the new ‘Black Adam‘ movie coming from Warner Brothers. Legendary actor Peirce Brosnan, best known for playing James Bond, has been cast to play ‘Doctor Fate‘! With an actor of this caliber being cast in the role, fans can only hope we will get a ‘Doctor Fate’ stand alone movie in the near future. Check out what we know so far and let us know if you are excited about this casting choice.
The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Pierce Brosnan will be playing Kent Nelson a.k.a. Doctor Fate in the upcoming Dwyane Johnson-led superhero flick Black Adam. Best known for his turn in the highly sought-after role of James Bond in the 007 franchise, Brosnan has never starred in this particular genre until now.
Nelson is described as a founding member of the Justice Society of America who accidentally uncovers the tomb of the wizard Nabu while exploring the Valley of Ur. His discovery and revival of Nabu leads to the unintentional death of his father and archaeologist Sven. Nabu eventually trains Nelson in the power of sorcery before bestowing him with the Helmet of Fate, which allows him to access these powers. When Nelson returns to the United States two decades later, he begins fighting crime under the moniker Doctor Fate.
