The Black Adam cast is officially complete. Just the other day, Dwayne Johnson shared the first page of the Black Adam script he was finally happy with. He and the others are ready to begin production in less than 3 weeks. So far, the likes of Atom Smasher, Hawkman, and Cyclone were all locked in. The only character that was yet to be cast is Doctor Fate. Now, even that casting has been completed to perfection as former James Bond, Pierce Brosnan will play the mystical part of Kent Nelson.
The Name is Fate, Doctor Fate!
The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Black Adam added Brosnan alongside a very talented cast of actors. This will be the first time that the actor will be playing a superhero role. And it’s needless to say that the last member of Black Adam’s JSA has been cast flawlessly. In fact, the casting of the entire film has been top-notch, with Noah Centineo playing Atom Smasher, Aldis Hodge coming in as Hawkman and Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone. Besides the heroes, we have Marwan Kenzari (probably as the villain), and Sarah Shahi (as Adam’s probable love interest).
Dr. Fate was created by Gardner Fox and Howard Sherman. He is among the oldest characters of the DC Universe and he is WB’s latest answer to the MCU’s Doctor Strange. Kent Nelson was taught sorcery and came across the helmet of Nabu, who acts as Fate’s mentor and spiritual guide. It will be interesting to see the kind of role that Doctor Fate will play in Black Adam and future DCEU projects. There’s a major chance that he and the other JSA members will be returning in Shazam! 3. Or they might even get a big-budget HBO Max series of their own.
The plot of Jaume Collet-Serra’s Black Adam is being kept under wraps for now. It was initially supposed to arrive in December 2021, but it stands without a release date for now. Considering that it is about to go under production next month, it could find a mid-2022 release window.
