The wisdom of Solomon, the strength of Hercules, the stamina of Aries, the power of Zeus, the courage of Achilles and the speed of Mercury! Any good geek knows what happens when you combine these elements -- Captain Marvel! DC's famous comic Shazam (it's an acronym, see?), featuring young Billy Batson transforming into the superhero Captain Marvel has been optioned for a feature film under the directorial eye of Peter Segal. No word yet on a script, time frame, or casting thoughts.

I know the story of Shazam can seem sorta campy ... but I honestly really enjoy it. And let's be honest, a lot of comic book characters can seem sorta campy at times. I, for one, am really excited for this one. Granted, I generally get excited for just about any superhero movie. Now let's just hope they can find someone appropriate to cast as Billy. Suggestions?
