During a visit to the set of “Get Smart”, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson revealed to Coming Soon that he had spoken with director Peter Segal about the possibility of playing Captain Marvel in the “Shazam!” adaptation.
“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.”
Will he be in tights? “Well, knowing Pete, he’d update it and make it fresh. But that’s his question; he’s very excited about the project and talks about it passionately. Pete also understands the importance of getting that right; he’s a big comic book fan.”
