The Rock to Play Captain Marvel?

She loves you, Yeah Yeah Yeah.

Don't you just love headlines with question marks at the end? "Paris Hilton Has Syphilis?" "Britney Spears Adopts Lemur?" You get all excited and flip to the middle of the magazine, is it true, is it true? - only to find: guess what? We don't f***ing know either! I went to journalism school!

Anyway, today in questionable headlines, The Rock to Play Captain Marvel? That's the rumor. Someone heard about it and printed it, and then someone else put it on the Internet, and then I rewrote it in smartassican and put it on the Internet again.

It's a wonderful time to be alive.

According to one source, Mr. Rock (who recently got done working with Peter Segal on "Get Smart") has discussed the idea of playing Captain Marvel: "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."

The DC comic is about a kid who morphs into a mega-powerful super-hero after uttering a magic word.
