Excitement is certainly building for The CW’s The Flash, and now comes word that Prison Break’s Wentworth Miller has joined the show in the role of Leonard Snard. Long-time comic book fans will recognise that name as the alias of the villainous Captain Cold. The character will debut in episode four of the show.
Captain Cold has been around since 1957’s Showcase #8 , debuting in a story titled The Man Who Mastered Absolute Zero. The victim of an abusive childhood, Snard ends up inventing a high-powered freeze ray that he uses to live out a life of crime.
The Flash will debut on Tuesday, 7th October in the US, with a UK showing to hopefully follow shortly after.
