Ain't It Cool News posted this article about screenwriter/director Peter Segal about bringing the original Captain Marvel to the screen. "This kid is a prepubescent boy that gets to morph and become a superhero and I think you've got to ... that's so rich you know, to find two actors, because I don't think one actor can play 14 and 28 . . . that'd be a little creepy like 'Clifford' or something, I don't know, but that's why I think they came after a guy like me."
