Black Adam star Sarah Shahi appears to have offered up some clues as to who she might be playing in the upcoming superhero movie.

The Person of Interest actor, whose role in the DC Comics-inspired outing has yet to be revealed, took to Instagram on Monday (January 4) to share a snapshot of her "research" for the role.

The photo included comic book issues such as Black Adam: Year of the Villain #1 and two from the Shazam! anti-hero's 52 maxi-series.

While it's all pretty much still speculation at this point, CinemaBlend points out that a significant figure in the latter outings is Adrianna Tomaz, an enslaved refugee who Black Adam saves from organised crime group Intergang.

Later, the pair fall in love, as Adrianna convinces Adam to become a better person so that he can have a positive influence on the nation of Kahndaq. After that, Adam retrieves the magical amulet of Isis and gifts it to Adrianna, which bestows her with superhuman abilities of her own.

Together, the twosome go on to save Adrianna's brother Amon, and thus become somewhat of a Black Adam family. So it certainly seems fair to suggest that's who Shahi could be portraying in the big screen adaptation, though we're going to have to wait and see.

What we do know for sure is that Dwayne Johnson will be stepping into the boots of the titular character, while Trinkets' Quintessa Swindell will play Maxine Hunkel/Cyclone and The Invisible Man's Aldis Hodge is set to portray Carter Hall/Hawkman.

Noah Centineo, best known for his role in the To All The Boys series, will also appear as Ali Rothstein/Atom Smasher.
