Leonard Snart, a.k.a. Captain Cold, is heading to the CW! Prison Break star Wentworth Miller has been cast as the rogue and will make his debut in the fourth episode of The Flash. Executive Producer Greg Berlanti stated we'll witness Snart's origin as well as the origin of the Rogues.

It was also "hinted" that Gorilla Grodd could eventually appear in the series and Geoff Johns stated he believes the upcoming show is “the most faithful DC adaptation ever.” Well, that's certainly raising expectations just a bit! So, what do you think about the casting news, Viners? Share your thoughts with us below.

The series premiere is set for Tuesday, October 7 at 8/7c.

Well, first let me just say how much I'm geeking out over this. ...A lot.

Second, I have many questions: will he have superpowers or cold-guns? Will he be working with Golden Glider? And if so, will she have powers?

AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!

Prison Break remains one of my favorite series ever (even if it ran out of steam). It was the show responsible for getting me into TV dramas.

Killer Frost and Captain Cold in one show? That would make for quite the showdown when they both get their powers.

That's just not a phrase a person can say without sounding sarcastic ;)

The first season is absolutely amazing! The second season is also solid.

The 3rd season sucks because it was the writer's strike year, the 4th was better, but not quite up to the first two.

Still check it out. Its soooo badass.

#16 Posted by JakeN7 (12386 posts) - - Show Bio

@lagozzino: Which is why I added the second part!

#17 Edited by longbowhunter (7082 posts) - - Show Bio

Wow! He is much better looking than the Len Snart of old.

#18 Edited by Spidey_Jackson (1714 posts) - - Show Bio

This. Is. Perfect.......

#21 Posted by Perfect 10 (1054 posts) - - Show Bio

cool. no pun. mirror master (for powers) is my favorite rogue and of course love for glider the only female so this is exciting news

Comic Book roles are attracting some big names. It's no longer just disregarded as kiddie bulls**t.

#23 Posted by MrMazz (1234 posts) - - Show Bio

But will he have Cold Arms or the Cold gun? Likely the arms but man something about a crook just making a cold gun is hilariously awesome

Cool choice (pun very much intended.)

If there is one thing I request them to keep if they change around the costume is just the glasses.

#28 Posted by Fetts (4466 posts) - - Show Bio

YYYYYAAAA! That's what I'm talking about. Wentworth Miller making a comeback!

#29 Posted by CF12793 (2992 posts) - - Show Bio

Pfft, well this is gonna be terrible. The guy already played a criminal! I guess he has no fear of being cast in the same role in everything......And I mean, he's too goodlooking to play Captain Cold! The producers don't really want women to swoon for the villain instead of the hero, do they? That's dumb. I don't think I'll try with this show.

If you're continuing to read this, please know that I was being completely facetious in my statement above and it was a sly diss on people who have to criticize EVERY casting choice. Really, I couldn't be happier with this choice because I loved Prison Break and I know this guy delivers. Alongside the third season of Arrow, I honestly can't wait for this show to begin.

#30 Posted by Knightfall225 (1989 posts) - - Show Bio

Awesome news. He will probably be the best actor on the show though.

#32 Posted by MadeinBangladesh (6869 posts) - - Show Bio

Lol.

#38 Edited by witchboyofboston (12 posts) - - Show Bio

It's nice to hear it's a faithful adaptation even though I like new spins on old characters too. Nowadays it feels like creators try too hard to make things new when a character crosses over to TV or film.

#39 Posted by The Impersonator (5483 posts) - - Show Bio

Can't wait to see Captain Cold's cool action.

Saw on my Facebook news feed that he was cast on the show but they wouldn't say who because of spoilers.
