Whether it’s the plot being discussed, the action sequences, or the brilliant way the actors’ brought their respective characters to life, the movie is surely one to stay with the viewers.
Amidst the sea of praises, actor Pierce Brosnan was heavily admired for his role as Kent Nelson AKA Doctor Fate in the movie.

Well, fans should keep their hopes up as Pierce Brosnan himself might have confirmed his future reprisal.

After the release of Black Adam, it was only natural for fans to immediately ask the never-ending question of ‘what’s next?’ Many of the viewers were most impressed by Dr. Fate, a character bringing literal magic into the DC Extended Universe. They not only loved him in the movie, but they also cannot wait to see him in future DC projects.
*Black Adam spoilers ahead*
Pierce Brosnan has already claimed that he might be reprising his role in the future. While in conversation with Variety, he was asked if he had any plans of coming back as Dr. Fate, to which he replied in an affirmative.
“Yes, of course. They have already had discussions with me about Dr. Fate. But i think we should not count our chickens before they are hatched.”
Fans were left heartbroken after Doctor Fate sacrificed himself in the movie in order to save Hawkman, getting into a one-on-one battle with Sabbac. Therefore this news certainly comes as a breath of fresh air for fans wanting to see more of the character.
However, this raises quite an important question. If Dr. Fate is dead, how will he come back? Well, one must remember that Kent Nelson is the one who died, and not exactly Dr. Fate as anyone can become Dr. Fate as long as they adorn the Helmet of Nabu. Therefore, Brosnan might not be Dr. Fate in the future, but a completely different face instead.
One possibility for the James Bond actor’s return could be a movie set in the past, way before Black Adam took place. This will not only have Brosnan return as Dr. Fate but also expand on the character’s history.
Pierce Brosnan Talks About His Approach
While talking about how Brosnan managed to bring Doctor Fate to life on the big screens so flawlessly, he simply stated that he believed in the script of the movie and did not question it much.
“You know, if it’s on the page and it works, then you don’t need to ask a million questions. You play the scene, you play what’s on the page. But you also have a backstory. He was married, he had a life, he had a wife. He has the blessing and the curse of Helmet of Nabu. You have to believe in that and personalize those artifacts with tiny little things.”
This goes on to say that not only Brosnan believes in the creators of the movie, but he also puts in extra work to completely get into the mind of his character. No wonder fans went crazy over his brilliant portrayal. Given the wide spectrum of roles he has done in his career, he certainly knows what it takes to play an unforgettable character.
Black Adam is currently playing in theatres.
