Yeah, there's a hypothetical root method that so far works on all the s4s that run on the Snapdragon chips. Won't know for sure until a dev gets their hands on it and attempts it. Given that the s3 was locked and the AT&T s4 bootloaders were locked, it should be assumed the Verizon version will be as well.
