Pierce Brosnan is Dr Fate in the Black Adam movie

March 24th, 2021 by Marc Comments

Oooooh… this is exciting news.

It seems that fellow countryman Pierce Brosnan has signed on to the Black Adam movie to play major DC character Dr Fate and, honestly, this is very exciting news.

This is the first time in his career that Brosnan has dipped his toes into the superhero stream.

This means that the Justice Society of America has been rounded out in the movie, joining Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher and Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone.

In the movie Brosnan will be Kent Nelson, the son of a famous archaeologist who becomes a sorcerer and inherits the Helmet of Fate, making him one of DC’s most powerful, magical characters.

This is great news and means that Black Adam will have a very different flavour than other DC movies, putting it in a period that has yet to be explored on the big screen.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
