For those unaware, the previous Shazam! movie featured a Superman cameo, although it didn’t show the actor’s face – leading to plenty of fans expressing their disappointment over Henry Cavill’s absence.

The movie’s director, David F. Sandberg, has been tight-lipped when it comes to the potential of any Justice League members sharing the screen with Asher’s Billy Batson.
