CBR covered DC Entertainment - All Access: DC NOW! panel at Comic-Con International. During that panel Geoff Johns spooke about Shazam and Black Adam
Moving onto “Justice League” issue #0, Johns promised that Shazam will be joining the team, “In their second year, and Black Adam is around as well,” Johns added.
Rob Liefeld talked a bit about Hawkman and his ties to Thanagar. This is following my train of thought that soon we will find out he is Thanagarian and his real name is Katar. Then that will free up the Carter Hall name for an Earth 2 Hawkman. Even in the reboot Hawkman is cursed to be confusing. ;)
Liefeld took over with “Savage Hawkman” issue #0, telling audiences that in his first few issues Carter Hall has been trying to figure out the nth metal while being attacked by those interested in taking it from him, issue #12 leading right into the #0 issue.
“It’s a giant space opera with the fall of Thanagar…we introduce Carter was an adopted son of the royal family,” Liefeld said, adding, “It sets the stage for ‘Hawkman: Wanted’…[where] Carter learns that when he is located on Earth he is an intergalactic criminal…he now has to prove his innocence.” The issues after that will cross over with “Green Arrow,” and include Red Hood, Starfire and Deathstroke.
“It’s a little bit of Dune, a little bit of Ten Commandments,” Liefeld added, describing the book and showing an image of Lady Hawk on the cover of issue #12.
