The Wrap reports “Hiddleston recently had dinner with producers and sent them a makeup test that he did on his own in London. He will undergo a proper makeup test in the coming days, as the character’s appearance is important to fans of the franchise, who should be delighted with the casting of a major member of the Marvel universe.”

The 1994 cult classic directed by Alex Proyas starred Brandon Lee in the title role and was based on a James O’Barr comic series.  D

Director F. Javier Gutierrez (Before the Fall) is helming from a script by Cliff Dorfman (Warrior) and expects to start production this fall.

The film has been hindered with director changes, writing problems and a series of stars attached for short periods of time: Bradley Cooper, Mark Wahlberg and James McAvoy.
