Kevin Hart wants to join his Jumanji co-star Dwayne Johnson in the highly-anticipated Black Adam movie.

While doing the press rounds for Jumanji: The Next Level, Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart sat down with Entertainment Tonight to discuss their latest adventure as Dr. Smolder Bravestone and Franklin “Mouse” Finbar. During the discussion, however, Dwayne Johnson was also asked if there’s a potential role for Kevin Hart in the Black Adam movie. Kevin Hart was the first to respond, saying:

“We’ve already discussed it. We talked about it earlier, so we’re finding that out. No matter what, he’s not going to do it and not put me in it. How selfish would that be?”

Dwayne Johnson then added the following:

“We’ve got to find the part for Kevin in ‘Black Adam’ within the DC Universe.”

Kevin Hart is one of the busiest men in Hollywood, but he has yet to star in a comic book movie. However, Hart is currently attached to produce and star in a “high concept comic twist” on the superhero movie from the writers of Detective Pikachu. Titled Night Wolf, the project was acquired by STXfilms this past August.

Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam will introduce Hawkman, Doctor Fate, and the Justice Society of America to the DC Extended Universe. Warner Bros. and DC’s Shazam! was originally going to feature Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam before the decision was made to give the character his own standalone film. Here’s the official synopsis for the Shazam! movie:

We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quick.

Directed by David F. Sandberg, Shazam! stars Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans and Djimon Hounsou.

Shazam! is now available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD.
