News about Shazam! is starting to hit the internet with a few new theories going around about the new hero fighting more than just one villain in the upcoming film (and an action figure that (sort of) confirmed it). Now, even a new cast member will reportedly get announced pretty soon.

Revenge Of The Fans was the first one to hit the news about this rumor. John Glover might be joining the incredible cast of Shazam!. Glover is known for his famous role in 7 seasons of Smallville, where he took on the part of Lex Luthor‘s father, Lionel Luthor!

CR: Warner Bros.

Even though the writer of Revenge Of The Fans trusts his source, we advise you to take this rumor lightly. We’re a few months away from the film’s release, and literally, anything can sprout of the debts of the internet. There are no other rumors about what his role could be, or if it could be a small easter egg. David F. Sandberg already showed us he knows his DCU history well, so that this movie will be a spectacle to behold in the details, is a certainty.

What do you think about the new cast rumors of John Glover? Let us know in the comments below.

The Shazam! cast is all sorts of incredible and includes actors like Zachary LeviMark StrongRon Cephas JonesAsher Angel, Cooper Andrews, Jack Dylan Grazer, and many more. The film will be directed by no one other than David F. Sandberg.

Shazam! will hit theaters on April 5, 2019!

Movie synopsis:

“We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Strong).”
