The following contains spoilers for Black Adam, now playing in theaters.

Warner Bros. and DC Films’ Black Adam filmed a second, although deleted, post-credit scene teasing the future of Pierce Brosnan’s Doctor Fate.

According to The Direct, the deleted post-credits scene would have teased the character’s future in the DC Universe following his death at the end of the film. While the order of the post-credit scenes remains unclear, sources state that the scene would have played after the credits along with Henry Cavill’s Superman cameo. The sequence would have seen Doctor Fate’s helmet sitting on top of the sand with a mysterious hand reaching out to pick up The Helmet of Fate before cutting to black.

While it remains unknown if Brosnan will reprise his Doctor Fate role in a future project, the actor has previously hinted that the possibility of his return is on the table. “So I think the door is open. I honestly have no idea where this will go,” he said. “I just know I’m very proud of the work playing Doctor Fate and honored being part of the DC comic book world.” Brosnan has described his character’s death scene as “quite emotional,” saying, “It resonated with me as a man who has lived 69 years and is on the cusp of his 70th year on the planet, and having seen friends pass before me, while being close to the passing of lives. There was a deep poignancy.”

Black Adam Introduces the JSA

Starring Johnson in the title role, Black Adam is a spinoff of 2019’s Shazam! and will mark the DCEU debut of the JSA (Justice Society of America), which will consist of Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Brosnan as Doctor Fate, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Sarah Shahi as Adrianna Tomaz and Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone. Johnson has repeatedly stated that Black Adam would mark a “new era” for the DCEU, with the DC film marking the return of Cavill’s Superman in a post-credits scene.

The actor has confirmed that he “absolutely” has plans for a Black Adam vs. Superman film, saying, “That is the whole point of this, man.” He continued, “I have been saying for some time, there’s a new era in the DC Universe that’s about to begin. And what I meant by that was introducing a brand new character. It’s not a sequel, not an existing IP. It was…you know, Black Adam!”

Black Adam crossed $250 million worldwide after ten days in theaters. On its opening weekend, Black Adam soared to the top of the domestic box office, earning $67 million USD in its domestic debut, surpassing projections that the film would reach $62 million after it opened across 4,350 North American theaters. While these earnings were in line with previous DC films (2018’s Aquaman earned a domestic cume of $67.8 million), Black Adam did surpass the earnings for 2019’s Shazam!, which pulled in a domestic total of $53.5 million in its opening weekend.

Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, Black Adam is now in theaters.
