Pierce Brosnan, perhaps best known for his tenure as James Bond 007, is set to join the DC Extended Universe in the upcoming film Black Adam. Pierce Brosnan will play Doctor Fate, a member of the Justice Society of America, alongside the film’s larger-than-life star Dwayne Johnson.
Fans are delighted to see Dwayne Johnson and Pierce Brosnan bring their favorite DC Comics characters to life for the first time in a live-action film in Black Adam, which recently finished production. Pierce Brosnan was questioned about working on Black Adam in an interview with Collider while promoting his new film Cinderella, and he expressed his excitement for the project:
“It’s an ensemble piece, Black Adam. You have Dwayne [Johnson], who’s at the pinnacle of his fame and fortune and success and popularity. He is magnificent as Black Adam. We are the Justice Society and there are four of us, so we became a strong quartet of actors. The writing was very good. There were just enough beats. You just want three good beats. If you have three good scenes to hang your hat and your heart on, then you can make something of your days. For me, Black Adam had that, and Cinderella had it, in its own specific way.”
Pierce Brosnan sang the praises of director Jaume Collet-Serra:
“It’s exhilarating. I had the most magnificent time and with Jaume Collet-Serra, who’s the director of Black Adam, and the most recent film with Dwayne Johnson, Jungle Cruise…
With Jaume on Black Adam, I could say, ‘What about this line? What about that line?’ He had a very good ear and sensitivity.”
The DC film also stars Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, and Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, in addition to Dwayne Johnson and Pierce Brosnan. In undisclosed roles, Sarah Shahi, Marwan Kenzari, James Cusati-Moyer, and Bodhi Sabongui are also on board.
Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, and Hiram Garcia of Seven Bucks Productions are producing the film with Beau Flynn of FlynnPictureCo.
Scott Sheldon of FlynnPictureCo is an executive producer of the film.
On July 29, 2022, Black Adam will be released in theatres.
