While filming on Black Adam is about to begin, The Hollywood Reporter has just revealed an important element of casting that is always well-informed. In fact, Dwayne Johnson has been working on the film Black Adam for ten years, and the actor has just found the one who along with his colleagues from the Justice Society of America will find Dr. Fate, the film’s antihero, will play.
From James Bond to DC Comics
We still have to admit that the Justice Society of America cast up until now has not been exactly exceptional. But thanks to this new name that invites itself into the game, things get interesting.
So we learn from the American media that a former James Bond will therefore join the cast of Black Adam to help Dr. To play fate. And not just any ex-agent 007, since it’s Pierce Brosnan!
The actor is the third James Bond to venture into DC Comics, following George Lazenby in Superboy and Timothy Dalton in Doom Patrol.
See the original tweet
“It is with great pleasure to announce the newest member of our Justice Society (…) Pierce Brosnan as the legendary DR. Destiny.”
Brosnan will therefore be Kent Nelson, son of an archaeologist who receives the helmet of doom and acquires witchcraft techniques. He also has many abilities like escape, telepathy, strength … and a host of other powers. So much to say that the ways you can customize your character to fit the screen are endless. And it looks like Pierce Brosnan isn’t satisfied with just appearing in Black Adam, given that DC and Warner have big plans for the character of Dr. Fate should have.
The director of Black Adam, Jaume Collet-Serra, will therefore have something to do with this villain. Filming for the film is set to begin (hopefully) next month in Atlanta.
In the casting we naturally find Dwayne Johnson in the title role. He’ll split the bill with Noah Centineo (Atom Smasher), Aldis Hodge (Hawkman), Sarah Shahi (Isis), Quintessa Swindell (Cycline) and Marvan Kenzari (Sabbac). No release date has been announced at this time.
