BLACK ADAM Star Pierce Brosnan On His Doctor Fate Role: "I Know How To Get Into Tights"

One-time James Bond star Pierce Brosnan has commented for the first time about boarding the upcoming Black Adam movie as Doctor Fate, confirming that he'll be wearing a motion-capture suit for the role.

We found out that Pierce Brosnan (James Bond, Mrs. Doubtfire) had nabbed the role of Kent Nelson, aka Doctor Fate, in New Line's upcoming Black Adam movie back in March, and the actor has now spoken for the first time about joining the cast of the DC Comics adventure.

Brosnan chatted with his son for a video interview with People, and while he didn't go into any spoilery details, he did speak about the gruelling schedule required for such a massive production, and also confirmed that he'll be wearing a mo-cap suit to play the mystical hero.

"I do have to put the motion-capture suit on, which is an acting challenge in itself, but luckily I was brought up in the theater, so I know how to get into tights."

Brosnan joins fellow Justice Society members Cyclone (Quintessa Swindell), Atom Smasher (Noah Centineo), and Hawkman (Aldis Hodge), along with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as the titular antihero and Sarah Shahi as Adrianna Tomaz, aka Isis.

This take on Doctor Fate is described as the "son of an archaeologist who was taught sorcery skills and given the magical Helmet of Fate." The role marks Brosnan's first foray into the superhero world. In addition to his iconic take on 007, he's appeared in the likes of The Thomas Crown Affair, the Mama Mia! movies, The Matador, The Ghost Writer and Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief.

Black Adam is currently shooting and is set to hit theaters on July 29, 2022.
