Black Adam it will be a movie where Dwayne Johnson will be the absolute protagonist, we know that, but in the cast there are still several well-known names, and among the characters that our antihero will cross paths with is Kent Nelson, or Dr. Fate: Emeritus member of the Justice Society of America, heir to the Helmet of Fate and endowed with extraordinary powers.

The character, as stated by The Rock himself, is played by the great Pierce Brosnan. The film hits the big screen on October 20, headed by Jaume Collet-Serra (“Jungle Cruise“).
Nearly 5,000 years after being endowed with the almighty powers of the ancient gods – and just as soon imprisoned – Black Adam (Johnson) is freed from his earthly grave, ready to unleash his unique form of justice in the modern world.
Johnson stars alongside Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Sarah Shahi, Marwan Kenzari, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, Mo Amer, Bodhi Sabongui and the aforementioned Pierce Brosnan as Dr. fate.
Collet-Serra directed the film from a screenplay written by Adam Sztykiel and Rory Haines and Sohrab Noshirvani, based on DC characters, borrowed from characters created by Bill Parker and CC Beck. The film’s producers are Beau Flynn, Dwayne Johnson, Hiram Garcia and Dany Garcia, with Walter Hamada, Adam Schlagman, Richard Brener, Dave Neustadter, Chris Pan, Eric McLeod, Geoff Johns and Scott Sheldon serving as executive producers. The director’s behind-the-scenes creative team includes Oscar-nominated cinematographer Lawrence Sher, production designer Tom Meyer, editors Mike Sale and John Lee, costume designers Kurt and Bart, visual effects supervisor, Oscar winner Bill Westenhofer, and the composer Lorne Balf.
