The Crow

Not every Comic-Con tease is a winner, and this poster calling attention to the beginning of production of The Crow reboot in 2014 seems to be a dud. Sure the artwork featured is in the same vein as the comic book that's inspiring the adaptation, but this looks like a hastily made fan creation that you might find in the disappointing end of Artist's Alley. Why not feature some real concept art with Luke Evans in wardrobe as The Crow, or just some sort of stylish teaser poster? Yes, this is Comic-Con, but there has to be something better to get fans of The Crow excited for the film finally coming together. Am I wrong? Look!

Here's the Comic-Con teaser poster for The Crow from Shock Til You Drop:

The Crow

Other than the casting of Evans as Eric Draven, who's resurrected as The Crow to avenge his wife's murder so he can reunite with her in the hereafter, we don't know much about the film. Names like Tom Hiddleston and Alexander Skarsgard were once linked to the role, but Evans ended up with the part. F. Javier Gutierrez (Before the Fall) is directing, and with production beginning in 2014, hopefully we have more info soon.

    "Sure the artwork featured is in the same vein as the comic book that's inspiring the adaptation, but this looks like a hastily made fan creation that you might find in the disappointing end of Artist's Alley. " Check the signature and you'll see that the poster is made by James O'Barr: the creator of Crow.

      Yeah, I could tell just from a glance that it was O'Barr's artwork. Makes me want to re-read the graphic novel.

    2013: when film bloggers became trolls. Or did it start years ago?

      I think all the doughnuts have gone to his head. Really fucking insulting to the creator.
  • Wolffsrain
    I could tell right away this was a O'Barr-made illustration just by looking at the small thumbnail.

    I believe you're wrong Ethan. As a fan of the original comic books, well before the movie, seeing O'Barr's artwork to introduce the coming reboot is exciting. Apart from the main image the smaller depict specific scenes that weren't addressed in the Brandon Lee film and could lend the idea of a true adaptation of the graphic novel as opposed to the original film. I'm looking forward to this and this poster does fill me with a great deal of anticipation.

    This picture is better than the last two films!

    Gina Gershon as "The Crow"? What? :)
  • Buckaroo Banzai
    this reads like a hastily made movie-news that you might find in the disappointing end of Blogger's Alley... ...at least one could have a closer look before posting the big pic and see the signature by James O'Barr..-^^
