Black Adam: Pierce Brosnan’s Doctor Fate Costume Will Be Created Using Motion Capture
Warner Bros. and New Line’s upcoming Black Adam movie will see members of the Justice Society of America take the screen alongside Dwayne Johnson’s anti-hero, including Pierce Brosnan as the mystical Doctor Fate. With production well underway, Brosnan has provided some insight into how his character will be realized on-screen, stating that he has been wearing a motion-capture suit for the role.
“I do have to put the motion-capture suit on, which is an acting challenge in itself,” Brosnan stated in a video for People (via Black Adam News). “Luckily I was brought up in the theater, so I know how to get into tights.”
Motion-capture technology is a fairly common tool for modern superhero movies. Many of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s costumes are created digitally, including Spider-Man and Iron Man. While there are still plenty of practical costumes being used in superhero movies, the look of a digital outfit could be fitting for a character with magical powers like Doctor Fate.
Along with Doctor Fate, the Black Adam movie will feature other members of the Justice Society of America, including Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, and Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone.
Black Adam is the next New Line/DC film production after 2019’s Shazam! Johnson was originally slated to appear in Shazam! as a villain, though the project was reworked to give the star his own solo film. In other superhero costume news, director David F. Sandberg recently unveiled the costumes that will be worn by the heroes in Shazam! Fury of the Gods.
Black Adam has nearly completed principal photography. The movie is set to hit theaters on July 29, 2022.
