[Black Adam Spoliers]

As fans of the DC universe and Dr. Fate, we all hope that Dr. Fate isn’t dead. But in DC Extended Universe’s new movie Black Adam Dr. Fate is seen dying. It is seen that DC has always mentioned Dr. Fate as the Helmet bearer and not as a person. Dr. Fate’s weakness is known to be his physical form. Pierce Brosnan played the role of Dr. Fate in the film.

Doctor Fate is the senior member of the Justice Society and the one who adorns the Helmet of Fate. Kent Nelson is the son of an archaeologist. He discovers the tomb of Nabu the Wise with the help of his father. The mystic-sentient helmet chooses its master. After attaining it, Doctor Fate also masters his powers and also excels in various sorcery abilities. Pierce Brosnan as Doctor Fate wore a motion capture suit in Black Adam.

The story of Black Adam is quite interesting. The story is of a son transferring all his powers to his father, to save him. The son gets killed. Teth-Adam is the father, who is considered a threat by the Justice Society. In order to save a child, Teth-Adam uses his powers but ends up almost killing Adrianna and Amon. He gets traumatized knowing that his motive to save one’s life could have taken the lives of many.

Teth-Adam says “Shazam”, the word which strips off his power. He can regain all his powers by saying the same word. Teth-Adam is imprisoned in prison. The prison is situated underwater. The Justice Society also took care that the word “Shazam” is not said by him. Sabbac rises, and in order to stop him the Justice Society struggles but everything goes in vain. Doctor Fate knew that Teth-Adam could help them stop Sabbac and planned to wake Teth-Adam.

The reason why Doctor Fate dies is that he sees Hawkman getting killed in the fight with Sabbac. Knowing that Hawkman would be killed if he let the Justice Society stop Sabbac, Doctor Fate makes the barrier around the throne of Kahndaq which does not let the Justice Society enter. He goes to fight Sabbac all alone. Doctor Fate’s human form fights with Sabbac while his soul went to help Teth-Adam in the prison.

In the fight, Doctor Fate gets killed by Sabbac. The barrier around the throne gets dismissed after Doctor Fate’s death. The Justice Society decides to fight Sabbac and also save the people of Kahndaq. Hawkman uses Doctor Fates’s helmet. The helmet helps to project copies of Hawkman. This distracts Sabbac, and Teth-Adam kills Sabbac by tearing him in half.

In the film, Doctor Fate was shown dead. There surely will be some theory, to show Doctor Fate. The theory or the story behind his reappearance might be interesting for the DC fans to look forward to. The character was very underrated until the release of Black Adam. The character of Doctor Fate is of much importance in the coming DC Universe. Seeing the importance given to the character in Black Adam, the audience is also hoping for a separate movie for Doctor Fate.

Pierce Brosnan is popularly known as James Bond for starring in the Bond film series. In one of the interviews with the cast of Black Adam, Pierce Brosnan was asked whether he will be seen in the upcoming movies as Doctor Fate. Pierce said that he might be reprising his role as Doctor Fate in the future. His sacrificial death left all the fans heartbroken.

All the fans of DCU know that anyone can become Doctor Fate if they wear the Helmet Of Nabu. If there can’t be a theory with which Pierce Brosnan could return as Doctor Fate, then a completely new face can adorn the Helmet of Nabu and become Doctor Fate.

The audience would love to see more of Pierce Brosnan as Doctor Fate in the upcoming era of DCU.
