Pierce Brosnan has already turned in his Aston Martin and tuxedo suit after the seven years he spent played the top British agent, James Bond. Now Brosnan is getting fitted for a new suit and entering a new role and world.
Brosnan will be playing DC hero, Dr. Fate in the upcoming Black Adam movie that will star Dwayne Johnson as the titular character. So far the movie has cast Johnson as Black Adam, Aldis Hodge as JSA member Hawkman and Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone.
This will be Pierce Brosnan’s first entry into the world of superhero movies. After stepping down as James Bond, Brosnan has continued to shine in other movies such as The Thomas Crown Affair, The Matador, Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief and the Mamma Mia! movie series.
