According to The Wrap, Loki star Tom Hiddleston is in the very early stages of talks to play Eric Draven in the long-mooted reboot of The Crow.

The site reported that, “Hiddleston recently had dinner with producers and sent them a makeup test that he did on his own in London. He will undergo a proper makeup test in the coming days, as the character’s appearance is important to fans of the franchise, who should be delighted with the casting of a major member of the Marvel universe.”

The Crow reboot is set to be directed by Before The Fall’s F Javier Gutierrez, from a script by Warrior‘s Cliff Dorfman.

Pick up the first movie, The Crow on DVD for £3.48 or Blu-ray for £7.27 from Amazon.co.uk
