The wrestler-turned-actor tweeted the news Wednesday morning.

Johnson previously confirmed he would play a role in a Warner Bros. adaptation of the DC Entertainment property Shazam, but it wasn’t clear then whether he’ll be playing the title character or his nemesis, Black Adam — an earlier version of Shazam from Ancient

Egypt who has become an anti-hero in recent years.

Johnson has said that Black Adam has always been one of his favorite characters, adding that he’s always been a fan of anti-heroes.

Shazam has been portrayed in DC comics as honorable and flawed by pride, making him less of a traditional villain.

While no official Shazam project has been announced by Warner Bros., the studio recently unveiled nine mystery DC Entertainment titles set to hit theaters between 2016 and 2020.
