There are still a few DC mainstays that we haven’t heard from since the launch of Rebirth a few years ago. Among that list is Shazam, a character who will soon be making his big screen debut, and the Legion of Superhereos, a group now in the Supergirl TV show. Fans of these characters can rest assured, as you may not have to wait much longer to see your favorite characters return. Newarama recently talked to DC Co-Publisher Dan DiDio who had this to say:
“In this particular case with Shazam, we have the right team, we’re just waiting for them to be available,” DiDio said. “That’s one of the cases there. With a lot of this stuff, it’s interesting with characters like Shazam, and you know what, there’s a couple of books that constantly come up, Shazam, Legion of Super-Heroes, and Justice Society of America.”
Of course, DiDio didn’t offer any details of who that creative team might be. However, he did hint that of the properties mentioned, two have ties to a current DC event.
“A couple of those are actually tied to an event story that’s taking place right now, and hopefully we’ll be able to come out of that in a way that gives it a lift, and hopefully brings new attention and new eyes to those books so they can live a long, healthy life,” DiDio continued. “With Shazam, we’re really just waiting for one particular creative team to come free. They’ve expressed so much interest in it that we’re just holding it for them until that period of time.”
With Doomsday Clock in full swing, that could be the event he is talking about, but, for a little while at least, we will have to wait and see.
