With so many superheroes of the past coming back to movies (Hulk, Thor and now Captain America), is there a chance for Captain Marvel?

—Wayne Jones, Ashland, Neb.

Actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is hoping so, but his coy answer is "Maybe, maybe not." He'd like to play the villain Black Adam and reports a new movie based on the cartoon do-gooder is currently in the planning stages. Captain Marvel was played by Tom Tyler in a 1941 Republic Pictures serial, while Jackson Bostwick portrayed him in the mid-1970s TV series Shazam! Bostwick, 68, is working toward the release of his book, Myth, Magic and a Mortal, about making the TV series.
