Granted, these are just concept artwork — for a very specific actor, no less — but still, couldn’t they have looked — I don’t know — better? The artwork is from Diego Latorre, who has apparently worked on The Hulk for Marvel and Batman for D.C. The idea, it seems, is to show the suits what Bradley Cooper is supposed to look like in the would-be reboot that is no longer rebooting, since Cooper and would-be director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo have since flown the coop.
Again, you obviously can’t judge a movie by what some artist whipped up, but drawing Cooper’s face into the Crow imagery, for some reason, just doesn’t seem to work for me. Maybe they could have hit up James O’Barr and see what he could come up with. Was that too much to ask?
But maybe I’m just being too rough here. After all, I never liked the idea of remaking “The Crow” to begin with, and these concept artwork certainly does nothing to change my mind whatsoever. If anything, they’ve just strengthened my resolve that the film should NOT be remade. Too bad Hollywood will eventually remake it sooner or later. Thems the way of Hollywood these days, alas.
