25 Mar – James Bond alum Pierce Brosnan will be joining the upcoming New Line/DC superhero movie "Black Adam" starring Dwayne Johnson.
The actor is confirmed to play the role of Dr. Fate (aka Kent Nelson), a founding member of the Justice Society who found himself gaining great powers after donning the magical Helmet of Fate.
This will be Brosnan's very first superhero movie.
Johnson also shared the good news on Twitter, posting, "Such a pleasure to announce the final member of our [Justice Society], the statesman Mr [Pierce Brosnan] as the iconic and all knowing, Dr Fate. I'm grateful to have such a talented, diverse and hungry cast."
The new movie, which will see Johnson playing the DC anti-hero known for his disregard of rules and conventions, also stars Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher and Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone.
Jaume Collet-Serra, who has worked with Johnson in Disney's "Jungle Cruise", will be directing the project.
