Former James Bond star Pierce Brosnan has been added to the cast of Dwayne Johnson's Black Adam.
The antihero film is a spin-off to the DCEU film Shazam! that featured actor Zachary Levi.
Dwayne Johnson will be playing the titular role in the film directed by Jungle Cruise-director Jaume Collet-Serra Johnson, while Brosnan will play the role of Dr Fate, a member of Justice Society.
Johnson took to Instagram to announce the news, "Mr'@PierceBrosnanOfficial'as the iconic and all-knowing DR. FATE. I'm grateful to have such a talented, diverse and hungry cast. The hierarchy of power in the DC Universe is about to change...," read the post.
Black Adam also features Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, and Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone.
The script is written by Rory Haines and Sohrab Noshirvani, based on a previous draft by Adam Sztykiel.
Johnson is also producing the movie with Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia through their Seven Bucks Productions, and Beau Flynn through FlynnPictureCo.
The project is expected to start production in April in Atlanta, Georgia
