Wentworth Miller (Prison Break) has been added to the cast of The CW’s new series, The Flash! He will portray Leonard Snart, aka Captain Cold, and will first appear in Episode 4. The news was announced earlier today during the show’s panel at the Television Critics Association summer press tour.
Here’s some other points made during the show’s panel:
Much to the delight of fanboys everywhere, The Flash is “probably the most faithful DC Comics adaptation ever,” said Geoff Johns, Chief Creative Officer of DC Entertainment, who will be breaking stories and working on the show throughout its run.
“We weren’t looking to do the same show twice,” said executive producer Andrew Kreisberg about spinning The Flash off of Arrow. “We weren’t looking for the same kind of hero that Stephen [Amell] portrays. We wanted someone more normal, who had greatness thrust upon them.” He said Grant Gustin was the first person to read for the role of Barry, and the team knew they’d found their star immediately.
