Tom Hiddleston in talks to play the Crow

Last we heard about Relativity Media's latest movie adaptation of The Crow, James McAvoy was in talks to play the undead Eric Draven. Now The Wrap is reporting that the production may be trading in Professor X for Loki, with Tom Hiddleston in talks for the starring role.

According to The Wrap, Hiddleston recently sent the Crow producers a makeup test he did himself, and the producers were pleased enough that he'll be getting a full makeup test. As Bleeding Cool notes, Hiddleston's interest in the project hopefully means there's a solid script going into the film.
