shazamThat Geoff Johns certainly is one busy guy. Seriously, how does he find time to sleep at night? Not only is he writing several comic books a month, including Blackest Night – DC’s big summer event, he’s also writing and producing on a Flash movie, now he’s also co-writing “Shazam!,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Hopefully, this project will have more success than the previous attempts which have languished endlessly in development limbo. DC seems to be doing their best to play catch-up with their rivals at Marvel, who have a strong slate of projects in development, including Captain America, Thor and The Avengers.“Shazam!” is the story of the hero Captain Marvel, who is actually a young boy Billy Batson who is able to transform into his alter-ego by shouting the word, that’s right, Shazam! Upon uttering the magic word, he is imbued with Solomon’s wisdom, Hercules’ strength, Atlas’ stamina, Zeus’ power, Achilles’ courage and Mercury’s speed.

Johns has shown his familiarity with the character (and his nemesis, Black Adam) through his celebrated run on Justice Society of America. It will be interesting to see his take on bringing Captain Marvel to the big screen.
