DETROIT – The Detroit Lions jacket Tom Hardy wears in the new trailer for “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” isn’t the only connection the city has to movies adapted from comics this past week.
The trailer for “Crow” -- the most recent interpretation of Detroit-native James O’Barr’s graphic novel -- was released Monday.
Inspired by the comic and the quadrilogy of feature films released between 1994 and 2005, “Crow” was made by a group of Metro Detroit film makers to pay homage to the franchise. The fan-film follows Dean Summers as he searches for answers and the men who left him to die.
“A big thing I really wanted to accomplish was featuring local filmmakers that had the passion to really do as best as they could,” executive producer Justin Mane said to Local 4 in October.
While not involved in the project, O’Barr reached out to the filmmakers and gave them his blessing on it.
