      The professional wrestler-turned-actor, who is currently shooting for Black Adam, shared a picture of himself in a beefed up avatar from his training session. "Big week for #BlackAdam shooting my 'champion' scenes with my shirt off and showing my body," Johnson wrote alongside the photo on Instagram Sunday.

      "Been working extremely hard dieting, training and conditioning unlike any other role of my entire career," he said, adding he is grateful for the "grind and support".

      Black Adam is a spin-off of Warner Bros and New Line Cinema's Shazam!, featuring Zachary Levi. The character first appeared in DC Comics in the 1940s as a villain corrupted by power. He became an anti-hero in the early 2000s.
