The name is Fate. Dr. Fate.

In the first superhero foray of his career, Pierce Brosnan has nabbed the plum role of classic hero Dr. Fate opposite Dwayne Johnson in Black Adam, New Line's action-adventure project featuring the DC Comics antihero.

Brosnan will play Kent Nelson, aka the good Dr. Fate, a son of an archeologist who was taught sorcery skills and given the magical Helmet of Fate. The character, created by Gardner Fox and Howard Sherman, is one of DC’s oldest characters, having first appeared in 1940’s More Fun Comics #5.

Why the hell is Black Adam and Dr Fate in a movie together? Semmes like such a random choice.

As for Brosnan, eh why not. Never had anything against the guy.

So my guess is the usual comic book trop , where the 2 meet have a huge fight and them team up together to beat up some other badder bad guy.
In comics I always liked Black Adam more than Captain Marvel , he was more of a bad ass

Man I feel like I've been hearing about this Rock-starred Black Adam movie FOREVER.

I guess it's finally happening?

Pierce Brosnan is a pretty dope casting though.
