The Goth community breathes a collective sigh of relief as Bradley Cooper is replaced by another.

Deadline is reporting Luke Evans (Immortals) is in final talks to play the mime-faced undead vigilante The Crow, which means F. Javier Gutierrez's movie isn't dead yet! This is just another big get for Evans in a long list of high level gigs; he was cast as the villain on Fast 6 and will play Bard the Bowman in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Tom Hiddleston, Alexander Skarsgard and Bradley Cooper were all once circling the role, but after some schedule changes Evans has won the part. Now only one question remains: waterproof mascara or chance it with the good stuff?
