He'd play Eric Draven, a murdered rocker back from the dead to avenge his killed girlfriend and provide somber harlequin makeup tips to highschoolers. Bradley Cooper had long been attached to the role before deciding to instead take depression in a less goth direction, and notably, he was going to look like this.

Javier Gutierrez remains in the director's chair, it would probably be a good idea for someone to start some drawings of McAvoy in a poison-symbol top hat.
