According to a report from the Hollywood Reporter,
Geoff Johns Exits DC Entertainment for Writing and Producing Deal (Exclusive)
June 11, 2018 9:25am PT / by Borys Kit
Current DC publisher Jim Lee will assume the chief creative officer position.
DC Entertainment president and chief creative officer Geoff Johns — who went from authoring comic books to having a major hand in the making of movies and television shows based on famous heroes — is stepping down from his executive post and entering into an exclusive writer-producer deal with Warner Bros. and DC, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Johns is launching Mad Ghost Productions, a new banner that will see him work on content for films, television and comic books, and have his hand in current DC properties as well as new and reimagined creations...

However, regarding Shazam![i]/(The Original) Captain Marvel, the article had this bit further in:
. . . On the publishing side, Johns will write and curate a DC pop-up label under the moniker The Killing Zone, focusing on new and lesser known or dormant DC characters and titles. He will also write a new [i]Shazam comic series scheduled to hit this fall as well as a comic titled Three Jokers, drawn by Jason Fabok. The latter was a project sidelined as Johns’ time was taken up by executive and screen commitments . . .

And, in case you hadn't already read it, Johns had relaunched Billy Batson in a series of backup stories during the New52 in Justice League.



I was less-than-impressed with what I read of it.

Oh, and it looks like there's now a separate web address set up for Geoff Johns' DC comics:
