At work today an e-mail made the rounds — Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson wants to play Black Adam in an upcoming movie based on DC’s Captain Marvel.
Johnson as Black Adam works for me. Several months ago when he was rumored for the World’s Mightiest Mortal, I just couldn’t see it. He doesn’t look like Fred MacMurray, after all. 😉
Then I started wondering. Might Shazam! also have other members of the Marvel Family? Like Mary Marvel? Who would I cast as Mary Marvel?
My top pick for Mary Marvel? Anna Popplewell.
My second choice? Summer Glau.
I know, two completely different choices for Mary Marvel. I don’t know who you’d get to play Mary Bromfeld as the little girl.
And I don’t even know if a Captain Marvel movie would have Mary Marvel in it. But maybe it will, and maybe the casting director would want my input… 😉
