WILL LEX LUTHOR BE PART OF THE SUICIDE SQUAD?10/24/14 @ 8:27 pm EST
Need a last-minute Halloween costume idea? If you've got a million bucks to spare, we have just the thing.
It's called the "million-dollar morphsuit" and it's literally dripping with diamonds -- about 70,000 of them. The costume is skin-tight spandex covering the entire body with jewels.
The designers at morph-costumes admit it's a bit heavy, but they assure the purchaser will be able to see in spite of the diamond-coating.
An interested buyer will pay one million British pounds for the morph-suit - that's about $1.6 million.

TOP COW’S FAMILY AFFAIR HAS ALREADY BEEN TURNED INTO A TV SHOW10/24/14 @ 8:12 pm EST
Of the new slate of movies announced by Warner Bros recently, the one that stood out as unconnected to the rest was the Suicide Squad… now the connection may become clearer. Deadline is reporting that Jesse Eisenberg is in talks with WB to take his Lex Luthor character from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice over to the David Ayer directed villain ensemble.
Word is that Tom Hardy, Will Smith and Margot Robbie are all being sought after by the studio to be in the movie as well.
Luthor has been involved with the Suicide Squad while in the comics, but not as a member.

Inspired by the feature films "Captain America: The First Avenger" and "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," along with the short "Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter."

The mind of writer John Arcudi seems like a fun mix of madness and cartoon mayhem. If you look at the characters he's created and written in his career -- from the Mask to Major Bummer to the BPRD and Abe Sapien books -- they all seem to walk a fine line between humor, horror, and high adventure. It's an eclectic mix of genre that Arcudi knows well, and it's on full display in his newest work "Rumble," an ongoing series launching from Image Comics this December.
Described as "a modern-day action fantasy series where rundown dive bars, undead kitty cats, psycho skinheads and giant mummies run amok," the book features a variety of intriguing characters. The most notable individual among these is Rathraq, an unusualwarrior whose return from a long absence helps to kick off the comic's main story. Coincidentally, this character also happens to be the writer's source of inspiration behind the series.
"I seem to recall seeing a drawing a million years ago -- not a drawing of a scarecrow, though. It's a long, long time ago -- so I'm not really sure about this -- but I think that's what got my mind rolling, and as time went on, it turned into a scarecrow," Arcudi told CBR News. "Then a scarecrow with the personality of Conan... and then, well, what Rathraq is now. The rest of the story grew with him."
When asked for more details about the story and its setting, Arcudi played it sly. "I don't want to give it all away."
