Norman Reedus stole the hearts of fans everywhere through his character Daryl on 'The Walking Dead,' not to mention women everywhere melted when they saw his paternal instincts with lil' baby "Ass Kicker" last season, but could the star become a blockbuster sensation with a role in 'The Crow' reboot?
When it comes to comic book movie castings, this sort of outrage is nothing new. Just about every announcement comes with some sort of protest, as comic book fans have their own preconceived notions of what the big screen version of their favorite hero or villain should look and sound like.
Often the best way to make fans happy with a reboot/new version of something old is to respect what came before it by involving the original creator(s) with the update. And 'The Crow' reboot has done just that by hiring comic book writer James O'Barr (who created the character) as a consultant for the upcoming film.
The race for 'The Crow' is heating up. We previously reported that 'The Avengers' and 'Thor' fan favorite Tom Hiddleston was in the running for the lead in Relativity Media's adaptation of the James O'Barr comics, but now the latest word is that Alexander Skarsgard is up for the part as well.
Yes, 'The Crow' reboot is still happening with director F. Javier Gutierrez at the helm, despite the fact that essentially all the big names being considered for the lead have failed to officially come aboard. Do you think this might change now that a new report has emerged stating that young Charles Xavier in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past,' James McAvoy, is circling the gig?
