BLACK ADAM Adds Former JAMES BOND Star Pierce Brosnan As Doctor Fate

JSA fans have been waiting to hear which actor had landed the role of Doctor Fate in the upcoming Black Adam movie, and it's now been announced that Pierce Brosnan will suit-up as the DC Comics hero...

We finally know who'll be suiting-up as Doctor Fate in Black Adam, and it's a casting choice that's sure to stir up a lot of conversation.

According to THR, former James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan has nabbed the role of Kent Nelson, aka Doctor Fate, in New Line's upcoming DC Comics adventure. He joins fellow Justice Society members Cyclone (Quintessa Swindell), Atom Smasher (Noah Centineo), and Hawkman (Aldis Hodge).

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will play the titular antihero, with Sarah Shahi on board as Adrianna Tomaz, aka Isis.

This take on Doctor Fate is described as the "son of an archaeologist who was taught sorcery skills and given the magical Helmet of Fate." The role marks Brosnan's first foray into the superhero world. In addition to his iconic take on 007, he's appeared in the likes of The Thomas Crown Affair, the Mama Mia! movies, The Matador, The Ghost Writer and Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief.

Johnson has confirmed that production is scheduled to commence in about 3 week's time. We recently got our first look at some sets being constructed in Georgia, but we'll hopefully get to see more revealing photos once filming is underway. At the very least, we can expect an official behind-the-scenes shot to mark the start of production.

A rumor that WB might be considering a JSA movie did the rounds recently, but that will likely depend on whether Black Adam is a success.
