With the ever-growing feud between the two thriving superhero universes, MCU and DCEU, there is always something new to have a passionate debate over.

Now the fans have a new topic to hash out revolving around the Black Adam character Doctor Fate, played by actor Pierce Brosnan. While some claim that DC copied the Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange of Marvel, the die-hard DC fans would beg to differ spitting one fact after the other.

While some may believe Dr. Strange is the inspiration behind Pierce Brosnan’s Dr. Fate, the facts simply do not add up. If we take a look at the comics of both Marvel and DC, all the doubts of who came before whom reach a definite conclusion. DC’s Dr. Fate was introduced in 1940, while Marvel’s Dr. Strange got his debut 23 years later in 1963. This erases any and all concerns fans have about DC copying Marvel.

While DC did introduce Dr. Fate to the big screens after Benedict Cumberbatch‘s Dr. Strange had already made his mark on the on-screen superhero world, there is no reason why fingers should be pointed in any direction. Both the characters are unique in their own selves. However, just because both superheroes have magic abilities to their name, some similarities are inevitable. Saying one is a copy of another would be like saying that the ability to fly is only one superhero’s trademark. After all, most superheroes can fly.

DC fans, like always, have got the back of their preferred universe. They wholeheartedly believe that Dr. Fate is a much superior character and could destroy Dr. Strange in a fight any day.

There’s no question that both superheroes are exemplars in their respective universes. Fans can certainly try and find a middle ground when it comes to this debate. Meanwhile, there is no doubt behind either universe’s ability to bring its characters to life. In the end, all the audience wants is to be thrilled by what they see on the big screens and that is exactly what these movies offer.

Black Adam Director Praises Pierce Brosnan

A few months back, director Jaume Collet-Serra explained why he thought Pierce Brosnan was the most fitting choice to play Doctor Fate in the upcoming movie. He stated that while Doctor Fate might not be an equal to Black Adam himself, his abilities and “raw charisma” are enough to be able to reason with the guy.

You need a special actor to play, basically a legend. Dr. Fate is a very powerful being, so you need someone like Pierce Brosnan who can play powerful without it being overly done.”

With Brosnan playing a veteran member of the Justice Society, it’s only a matter of days before fans get to see his aforementioned charisma as Doctor Fate. Certainly, Pierce Brosnan’s experience playing James Bond will come in handy in the upcoming action-packed movie.

Black Adam is all set to reach theatres on October 21, 2022.
