In an interview with Entertainment Weekly and the rest of the cast, attention shifted to Pierce Brosnan and his contribution to Black Adam, which Johnson highlighted in his own way. Even after fate laid a plan for the former James Bond to land one of DC Comics’ most iconic roles, he still couldn’t believe his luck, describing it as “the last thing I want at this point in my life.” Johnson was quick to interject, though, saying, “There’s nobody better to play Dr. Fate, really on this planet or in our industry,” he explained, to which Brosnan greeted with equal praise.
“Cheers, mate. Appreciate it,” said DC’s charming doctor, before praising Johnson’s work ethic. “That first day I saw you on set was just epic. Monolithic. You came, you held the space, and you guided us all with so much charm and dignity, humor and grace.”
The payoff in this case was seemingly massive for future production. “We’ve become family,” Brosnan continued, still addressing Johnson. “We have become a good unit because of you and your dreams.” Look, Black Adam isn’t such a bad guy after all.
