The original was pretty cool.  Wasn't impressed with any sequels.  Don't really see the need to reboot this thing.  Glad it's dead.

Looks too much like Alice Cooper in some of those...

I would be up for the reboot since only the first one was worth a damn.

 As a MASSIVE fan of the original, I was unimpressed when the remake was being talked about, especially after the 'sequels' were so awful. Then I sat back and thought about it. As much as a lot of people hate on Cooper, I think he'd have done the part justice. And at the end of the day, even if the remake had sucked, it still wouldn't take anything away from the original for me. If anything, it would make me like, and appreciate, it more! I'd have been interested to see what they'd have come up with.

 I liked the first one. I never bothered with any of the sequels, and wasn't there a t.v series I'm sure I dodged too. Bradley Cooper could've fitted the part but think it's had it's day now, after so many efforts doesn't that tell you something?

 That concept art blows.

The original is awesome, the sequels suck.  I don't think a reboot/remake will change the trend.  

Maybe the Lee curse has attached itself to the franchise.

They killed this reboot?  Excellent.  Of course that means the script will come back to life in pancake make-up and murder all those who dared to savagely criticize it.  So am I the only one who would consider Bradley Cooper as a potential replacement for RR in a Deadpool movie?  If so, he's free now.

I'm going to say what I always say.  The original was a good movie and a mediocre adaptation of a much better book.  If they want to remake this USE THE GOD*MNED BOOK AS SOURCE MATERIAL.  Eric Draven wasn't a musician, he was a tradesman, so lose the guitar.  Do this like Rodriguez did Sin City, or Snyder did 300, or just DON'T.  A remake would be a good thing IF and only IF  it adhered more closely to the source material.  You don't need "concept art"  There's tons of it already available.  Contact James O'Barr.

 What scytheofluna said, period. End of story or the movie people can fuck off.

These are obnoxious.  The top hat is particularly awful.  Eric Draven shops at Goth Topic now? 

I don't personally care how close to the source material they would stay.  I had no problems with the original movie's changes.  It's not like the source material (as much as I loved it) was perfect.

But Bradley Cooper?  And after these art shots, I am EXTREMELY relieved it is dead.  They're just terrible designs.

Yeah, neat pictures, but not for the Crow.  I've read the original book about a hundred times, and it's visual poetry.  I'd put it up there with Watchmen, V For Vendetta, The Hard Goodbye, The Long Halloween etc. as one of those graphic novels that I've had to buy 5 times over the years because it get's dog eared and worn out.  Nothing is perfect, but if I see Eric Draven on screen again, I want the 80's hair-do, I want a proper goth and industrial soundtrack (the 90's one was pretty good, but where was the Skinny Puppy or KMFDM?) and above all I want to be able to pick up the book while I'm watching and see frames from the comic on film.

Proyas' version wasn't bad by any stretch, it was a beautiful film.  The changes he made didn't destroy the story, but I think a true, frame for frame approach would result in something masterful in the hands of the right director.
