We already know that the cast of Black Adam is currently hard at work on the upcoming DC Extended Universe flick. However, it looks like Pierce Brosnan was long prepared for his role in the Dwayne Johnson movie. Interestingly, the veteran actor declared that working in theater made him ready to play Doctor Fate.

Back in March, fans were delighted when it was announced that the former James Bond actor will be playing Doctor Fate in Black Adam. After all, the character is the leader of the Justice Society of America and the movie would need a great actor to play the hero.

But is it possible that Brosnan also met other qualifications that made him perfect for the role? The Mamma Mia! star recently took part in an interview with his son Dylan Brosnan who admitted that he was excited to see his father as Doctor Fate.

"I know, I do have to put the motion-capture suit on, which is an acting challenge in itself, but luckily I was brought up in the theater, so I know how to get into tights," the older Brosnan said.

That's certainly an awesome way to prepare for a role and we believe that Brosnan will still look good in tights. Needless to say, we can't wait to see him in action in Black Adam soon.

Black Adam is directed by Jaume Collet-Serra. It will also star Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, and Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, who will comprise the rest of the JSA. The film is currently in production and is scheduled for release on July 29, 2022.
