Warner Bros. and DC have finally cast the final member of the Justice Society of America in Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s Black Adam. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Pierce Brosnan has been cast as Doctor Fate in the film.
Debuting in More Fun Comics #55 in 1940, Doctor Fate was created by Gardner Fox and Howard Sherman. There have been several individuals to take up the mantle of Doctor Fate, but the most popular version is the original, Kent Nelson. While exploring an ancient temple, Kent discovers the tomb of Nabu the Wise. Kent is trained in the supernatural by Nabu and is given powers by wearing the Helmet of Fate which allows Nabu to possess his body.
Brosnan is set to play the Kent Nelson version of the character. He will appear alongside Noah Centineo’s Atom Smasher, Aldis Hodge’s Hawkman, and Quintessa Swindell’s Cyclone.
Over the last few years, speculation on what the actual film will depict has made the rounds. Among them, the introduction of Cyclone and Doctor Fate stands out as particularly exciting. Moreover, Black Adam will be produced by The Rock’s Seven Bucks Productions alongside Warner Bros and New Line Cinema.
