Cosplay outfits are headed to the dry cleaner and weary geeks are heading bleary eyed onto planes back to their homes around the world, and thus wraps another Comic-Con, but with the deluge of news and bits and pieces of info, stories from San Diego will continue over the next day or so.

Unaware that the concept seems to be an Onion headline come to life, Bradley Cooper is eyeing the role of Lucifer in a big budget 3D adaptation of "Paradise Lost" according to Variety. Take a second, and let that sink in. A big budget, 3D adaptation of "Paradise Lost." With Bradley Cooper. Got it? Ok, great.
