Jason Momoa could be stepping into some big shoes for his next superhero movie role.

According to Mashable, the Game of Thrones and Justice League actor is in talks to star in an upcoming reboot of The Crow. Momoa will reportedly take on the lead role of Eric Draven, who was played by Bruce Lee's son Brandon Lee in the 1994 film. Unfortunately, Brandon was never able to reprise his popular role as he was tragically killed during a shooting accident while working on the set of The Crow.

Speculation over Momoa's involvement with the project began after the Aquaman star posted an Instagram photo of himself alongside director Corin Hardy, who's helming the reboot.

Based on the graphic novel by James O'Barr, the original Crow has become a cult classic among fans over the years.

For those who are unfamiliar the story, The Crow tells the tale of Eric Draven, a rock star who dies while being forced to watch the rape and murder of his fiancée at the hands of a gang. He comes back to life in order to exact his revenge against the criminal underworld.

Momoa seems like a good fit to play Eric Draven because he already has the long hair look down, plus he knows how to be vengeful superhero thanks to his experience as the King of Atlantis. Also, the heavy eye shadow should be no problem for the artist formerly known as Khal Drogo.
