Jaume Collet-Serra talks casting Pierce Brosnan for Black Adam. Filming has already begun on season four of The Mandalorian. The Witcher’s third season resumes filming after Henry Cavill’s covid-19 diagnosis. Plus, new looks at Resident Alien and Primal. Spoilers, away!
Director Jaume Collet-Serra discussed his decision to cast Pierce Brosnan as Dr. Fate in a new interview with Vanity Fair.
You need a special actor to play, basically, a legend. Dr. Fate is a very powerful being, so you need someone like Pierce who can play powerful without it being overly done. He can do it in a very subtle way. I mean, he’s one of the coolest people in the world — he was James Bond! But as a person, he’s magnetic, so warm with such gravitas.
