When the lineup was revealed for the new DC team-up TV series, Legends of Tomorrow, beyond the “Wait, how is Sara Lance alive?!” of it all, the biggest question was what the villains Captain Cold and Heat Wave were doing on the team.
Having appeared in a recurring basis throughout Season 1 of The Flash, Cold (Wentworth Miller) and Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell) have been ongoing thorns in the side of Barry Allen. And just when it seemed an uneasy alliance was forming between Flash and Cold, Leonard Snart showed his true nature once again and betrayed him.
Which begs the question, how will these guys function on a team with a bunch of heroes?
“I am not sure, entirely,” said Wentworth Miller, when I asked him this question at the Upfronts in New York last month. “My hope is that Captain Cold gets to keep his edge, his humor. But it’s not a total surprise to me that he is working with these good guys, or is prepared to work with these good guys. He does have a heart, and I think we see that in the relationship with his sister. So it’s not out of the question that he might do something good for a change.” Miller added, “I think it is a shades of grey character and I’d like to see him straddle the line as much as possible because that’s a lot of fun for me.” Continue reading
Get your superhero leotards on and start lining up: Warner Bros. TV Group has announced its Comic-Con 2015 lineup with a crop of new shows such as Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Blindspot, Containment and Lucifer, as well as fan faves such as Gotham, The Flash, The Big Bang Theory among many others. In total WBTVG will be at the San Diego convention with 18 series, 13 of which are fan standards.
Similar to last year’s Saturday during the fan confab, Warner Bros. Television and DC Entertainment are hosting another three-hour superhero night on July 11 with screenings and special appearances from returning series Arrow, The Flash and Gotham, as well as upcoming shows Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and their new digital series Vixen.
WBTVG’s schedule in San Diego is as follows:
Saturday, July 11
Warner Bros. Television & DC Entertainment Present: Super Hero Saturday Night. Pilot screening of Supergirl followed by cast and EP Q&A, a vid presentation of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Vixen. Also special video presentations and Q&As with stars and producers from Arrow, The Flash and Gotham. The Batman origin shows EP Bruno Heller will be in attendance.
The Prison Break limited series, which has been in the works for months at Fox, is slowly coming together. I hear no formal talks have been initiated yet but creator/executive producer Paul Scheuring is interested and has come up an idea for the serialized drama’s new chapter. Securing the creative voice is considered crucial in reviving cult dramas with new limited series installments, with The X-Files creator Chris Carter driving Fox’s follow-up, Heroes creator Tim Kring in charge of NBC’s Heroes Reborn and David Lynch and Mark Frost reteaming for the new Twin Peaks installment at Showtime. Along with Scheuring, also rumored to return are fellow Prison Break executive producers Marty Adelstein and Dawn Parouse.
Stars Wentworth Miller, who got his break on Prison Break, and Dominic Purcell both have acknowledged publicly that they would love to come back for a limited-run installment. Both are expected to return for the follow-up.
Not surprisingly, like the much lauded Season 1 of the original series, I hear the new installment likely would chronicle a prison break, focusing again on brothers Michael (Miller) and Lincoln (Purcell) — possibly trading places — who might be joined by a third co-lead character. I hear the idea is for many original cast members to reprise their roles with cameos in the limited series.
Unlike the stars of The X-Files, who are off doing different things, making scheduling extremely difficult, Miller and Purcell will have their work schedules synched up for the foreseeable future as they co-star together on the CW’s upcoming drama DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow.
Reviving Prison Break, as referenced today by TVLine, and The X-Files had been among the first priorities for Fox toppers Dana Walden and Gary Newman when they took over the network last summer while continuing to oversee sibling 20th Century Fox TV. Along with 24, which is working on a second limited-series installment, X-Files and Prison Break have been top moneymakers for 20th TV worldwide, making extending the franchises an extremely lucrative proposition for the company.

Are we to expect that the superheroes and villains will really just work together on Legends of Tomorrow? — Tim
“I hope the answer is no on the way to yes,” says Wentworth Miller. “Because if you stuff a bunch of rabid dogs in a barrel and role it downhill, that’s something that’s worth watching.” However, despite his evil tendencies, Miller’s Captain Cold does have a softer side. “In his relationship with his sister, you see he does have a heart. And there are people that he’s willing to put ahead of himself, so now that he’s aligned with these good guys, for better or worse, they’re going to start influencing him and his way of thinking. I’m excited to explore his shades of gray so we see he’s not just a villain, he’s a man.”
The Flash and The Arrow (or whatever he’s calling himself these days) approach superheroing very differently, and we’ve known this since day one. Oliver Queen’s ethics are determined by the situations, the line between right and wrong is constantly blurred for him. The same can’t be said of Barry Allen, who is a goody-two-shoes through and through.
Tonight, Barry Allen takes a walk on the wild side and asks Leonard Cart, a.k.a Captain Cold, for help with a big problem. Barry Allen is no Oliver Queen. Working with and trusting a foe will almost definitely go wrong for him for him for many reasons—and it does.
“Rogue Air” boast a ton of guest-stars. Unfortunately, this turns out to be more of a curse than a blessing because the episode feels stuffed. Basically, so many guest-stars, so little time. Continue reading
