The website Idle Hands has spotted an upcoming 3-pack of "Batman v Superman" toys including Batman, Superman, and a suit of armor for Lex Luthor. The armored figure bears a strong resemblance to the green and purple armor worn by Luthor in the comics, and (as Idle Hands points out) the figure has the LexCorp logo on the chest. The question now is whether or not Jesse Eisenberg will wear the suit in the feature film.

Entertainment Weekly has confirmed the character's return to the show -- although it comes with a bit of a twist.

“We are beyond excited to have Robbie back on 'The Flash,'” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told EW. “You can’t keep a good Firestorm down. Only this time, he’s back with a twist, a deadly Earth-Two version of our beloved Ronnie in the form of Deathstorm.”

Kreisberg's comments confirm that Amell will be playing the Earth-Two version of the character; "Flash's" second season has featured a number of characters from the parallel Earth, including alternate versions of Harrison Wells and Linda Park. The EW article also hints that Caitlin Snow and Ronnie Raymond will also be a couple on Earth-Two -- a super-powered supervillain couple comprised of Killer Frost and Deathstorm.

Yesterday, Canadagraphs tweeted a picture of Amell on set in his Deathstorm uniform.
