Tom Hiddleston In Talks To Be 'The Crow'

A big thanks to our very own Shaine for pointing this out to me -- it appears that The Avengers star Tom Hiddleston is in serious negotiations to play Eric Draven in The Crow remake to be directed by F. Javier Gutierrez.
Marvel's The Avengers star Tom Hiddleston, who played the villain Loki, is in early talks to take the lead role in The Crow.

The actor will play rock star Eric Draven, who is murdered and returns from the grave to seek revenge on his killers. The film is based on James O'Barr's popular comic book series, which sprang to life as a live action movie in 1994 with Brandon Lee in the lead. No true sequel was ever made after Brandon Lee, son of Bruce Lee, died on set. But this reboot is a little less precious amongst fans, due to plenty of straight-to-video follow-ups that came in the wake of the original, each with a different leading man.
