Tom Hiddleston in Talks to Star in THE CROW Remake

It's been reported that Loki himself from "Thor", played by the wonderful Tom Hiddleston, is in talks to star as Eric Draven in "The Crow" remake. James McAvoy was in talks to star as the title character prior, but those talks have now come to an end apparently.

It's hard to imagine anyone else playing the famed character, as Brandon Lee was incredible at it. I will say however, that Hiddleston's proven darkness does seem like a better fit that McAvoy for the role. I'm sure either actor could pull it off successfully but based on what I've seen from past performances alone, Hiddleston feels like a better choice.

The script for the remake is being penned by "Warrior" scribe Cliff Dorfman, and is said to follow the same graphic novel about the rocker Eric Draven and his fiancé who are murdered on Devil's Night. Draven is then brought back from the dead as a supernatural entity, claiming vengeance on those who wronged him.

No director is currently attached to the film but I imagine that will soon change if Hiddleston is locked in.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
