The actor is none other than Henry Cavill who is popularly known for his DCEU role of Superman. Stephanie Meyer author of the Twilight novel series in a blog post spoke about Henry being a perfect choice for Edward’s role.

Robert Pattinson has now entered the DCEU as Batman in Matt Reeves’s Movie . It’s known that the film is in development but hasn’t been greenlit by Warner Bros.
