Justice League

The Crow Reborn: Last we heard, the attachment of Jason Momoa (above in Justice League) to star in a new version of James O’Barr’s graphic novel The Crow was up in the air, as was the possible participation of director Corin Hardy. But now Momoa has shared a social media post (below) mentioning Hardy: “I’ve been waiting for sooooo long … let’s do this brother.” Sony has agreed to distribute the movie, which will reportedly feature a more faithful adaptation of the source material.
