The reboot follows the resurrection of musician Eric Draven, portrayed by the talented Bill Skarsgård, who returns from the afterlife fueled by a desire for revenge. His target? The perpetrators behind the brutal murders of himself and his fiancée, Shelly Webster, played by the enigmatic FKA Twigs.

Dark eye makeup, a black jacket with no shirt underneath – it's a striking evolution of The Crow.

Evolution of The Crow's Look

The Crow franchise has maintained the essence of the 1989 James O'Barr comic over the years. Various actors have taken on the role, each bringing a unique touch to the character. However, Skarsgård's portrayal sees a modernized Crow, with darker eye makeup and less exaggerated baroque designs. The shorter, unkempt hair allows his tattoos to become a prominent feature, seamlessly blending with the character's overall design.

Bill Skarsgård, renowned for his monstrous role as Pennywise in the It movies, steps into a more human yet equally captivating character in The Crow. This comes after his ventures as Kro in Eternals and Count Orlok in the upcoming Nosferatu remake. With the controversy surrounding the reboot settled Skarsgård's portrayal of Eric Draven presents a unique bridge between his monstrous past and potential future roles.

Despite initial backlash, this movie could be a defining moment for Skarsgård, showcasing his ability to lead a film where his face takes the spotlight. While Nosferatu continues his foray into monstrous roles, The Crow reveals a side that allows him to flex his acting range, effortlessly transitioning between monstrous and more human characters.

In a world where monsters and men collide, Bill Skarsgård proves he can navigate both seamlessly. As we eagerly await the summer 2024 release, it's clear that The Crow remake has the potential to be the actor's biggest triumph yet. Get ready for a visual feast that goes beyond the realms of life and death.
