Legends Of Tomorrow: Is This The Last We’ll See Of Captain Cold?

Posted by November 5, 2017 Comment

In the first season of The Flash, Wentworth Miller was cast to play Leonard Snart aka Captain Cold. Snart is one of the most popular of the Rogues in the comics and he quickly became that in the series as well. When the producers put together DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Miller along with his former Prison Break co-star Dominic Purcell were added to the crew of the Waverider. Snart and Mick Rory aka Heat Wave brought a completely different element from the other characters and were a lot of fun. Snart also built up a good relationship with the rest of the crew and he ended up sacrificing himself at the end of the first season.

But you can’t keep a good rogue down. Miller returned in the second season as part of the Legion of Doom and made an appearance on the Flash season three helping Barry (Grant Gustin) steal an object from A.R.G.U.S. When season three of Legends was announced, we learned that Miller would return again in yet a different variation on Snart. That’s the joy of doing a time travel show. But in a recent Instagram post, Miller put up a thank you letter that makes it sound like this will be his last time in the goggles and parka. He’s part of the Crisis on Earth-X crossover… but will that be his swan song?

Currently shooting some of my final episodes as “Captain Cold/Leonard Snart” on the CW’s LEGENDS OF TOMORROW and THE FLASH…

Grateful – now and in advance – to a pair of talented casts and hardworking crews… Thank you…

I’ve had a tremendous time playing this character… It’s been an opportunity, an education, and a f-cking blast…

With love and respect. -W.M.

He says shooting some of his final episodes, so it seems there will be a bit more after the crossover. Miller has been an excellent member of the Arrowverse and I still hold out hope that Barry will do something timey-wimey and we end up with Snart back in Central City on a regular basis. But his note does sound very finale.
