Avengers star could play the lead role...
Tom Hiddleston, better known to us as Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is reportedly in early talks to take on the lead role in The Crow. The Wrap reports that Hiddleston would play the Eric Draven role in the reimagining of the graphic novel and film, which is being produced by Relativity Media.
The graphic novel is about a man who returns from the dead to avenge the death of himself and his girlfriend at the hands of a gang. The source was adapted into a film by Miramax in 1994 starring Brandon Lee, who died on set.
The site notes that Hiddleston had dinner with producers and even sent them a makeup test that he did on his own in London. Javier Gutierrez (Before the Fall) is directing the long-gestating remake.
