Here’s what Giant Freakin Robot had to say about this rumoured casting news:

Right now, our trusted and proven source says that (…) Pierce Brosnan has been offered a lead role in the prequel.

This news comes after it was revealed that Brosnan will be playing Kent Nelson, aka Doctor Fate in Black Adam.

Hopefully, this means we’ll start to see the actor in bigger productions again because he’s been missed.

However, Brosnan did open up about the sorts of roles he’s been offered of late during a recent interview with The Guardian.

I am a man of 67 years now and the parts that will come to me will be the parts of the elder, the parts of the comedic turn.
