007 tough guy Pierce Brosnan is now in the DC Universe, starring in ‘Black Adam’ in the well-known villain Doctor Fate.
The actor actually had the opportunity to step in years ago and endorse DC’s core character Bruce Wayne, but he blew it on his own.
When Brosnan attended ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’, he revealed that he was invited to audition for the 89th version of ‘Batman’, but he spoke out in front of director Tim Burton, so he lost out with the old man.
“Batman had an irreplaceable impact on my childhood, but I said some stupid things to Tim Burton at the time, like I couldn’t understand why anyone would like to wear their underwear out, and any guy who wears his underwear out can’t be taken seriously, so well, that’s it, the best guy (Michael Keaton) got the job. Maybe I was meant to play Doctor Fate.”
Only a multi-hero mix of Doctor Fate title to Black Adam here has become a villain, I do not know if he can round his heroic dream.
After the loss of Batman, Brosnan was hailed as a super man in another sense – James Bond – Brosnan appeared in four James Bond films between 1995 and 2002, namely ‘GoldenEye’, ‘ Tomorrow Never Dies’, ‘The World Is Not Enough’ and ‘Die Another Day’.
After two films starring Timothy Dalton that received a lukewarm response, Brosnan’s four films revived the glory of the James Bond film franchise.
Yet the last two James Bond films he played are now considered the worst in the series, and he knows it. In an interview with Britain’s ‘The Guardian’ he said, “I don’t want to watch myself as 007, I just don’t feel like I’m playing it well enough.”
In a recent interview with GQ magazine, he said he didn’t care who would replace Daniel Craig as the next generation of 007: “Whoever he is, I wish him all the best.”
