September 24, 2007 - IGN first learned months ago from the man himself, actor-turned-wrestler Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, that he was in the running to star in New Line's long-gestating Shazam! movie. Now the Game Plan actor reveals that he's actually being considered for two roles in the Pete Segal-directed action-comedy that John August is writing.
"Shazam, of course, I would love to play. They approached me about [Captain Marvel] and [villain] Black Adam as well," The Rock advised MTV.com. "We've been meeting for months. We're toying with either one. I think it's up to the fans. Without question."
I didn't even know there WAS A Captain Marvel movie in the works. But if there is, I'd much rather see Rock tackle the Black Adam role. Better he play heel than a face, I say.
What an odd episode. I mean.. it was funny, but it seemed much darker than just about any episode thus far. Andy's little Willa Wonka tribute was pretty funny, the hair salon was funny, and Stanley letting Ryan lead had me rolling.
