The Rock as Captain Marvel?

From the "strange but (possibly) true" department. Director Peter Segal looks like he’ll be directing the "Shazam" movie … and will he be casting Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in the lead role?

According to one source, Mr. Rock (who recently got done working with Peter Segal on "Get Smart") has discussed the idea of playing Captain Marvel: "Listen, John August is writing the script and he’s a tremendous writer, and I’ll just wait for the script to come in. But I’d love to work with Pete again, and certainly would want to work with John August. So there’s a strong possibility."

The DC comic is about a kid who morphs into a mega-powerful super-hero after uttering a magic word. Segal’s previous films include "The Longest Yard," "The Klumps," and "Tommy Boy." John August you’ll no doubt remember from "Big Fish," "Corpse Bride," and "Charlie’s Angels."
