It’s a fact: we know Captain Cold, aka Leonard Snart, is returning soon to Legends of Tomorrow (played once again by the wonderful Wentworth Miller). We also know Snart will be allying himself with Eobard Thawne, Malcolm Merlyn, and Damien Darhk, also known as the Legion of Doom. But when exactly will Thawne pluck Snart from the timeline, and what will his temperament be?
“The question mark will be: Which version of Leonard Snart?” Legends co-showrunner Phil Klemmer tells TVLine. “Because obviously he’s appeared now on all of the shows over a number of years, and he’s been everything from a despicable, unapologetic scumbag to a guy who died for the Legends.”
Feeling the Heat
You’d have to assume the version of Snart taken by Thawne would be an earlier one, pre-Legends. As Klemmer points out, Snart was originally a villain, so it makes sense for that incarnation to join a new team of villains.
“Mick has made a lot of moral progress, which might have reached its high water mark.”
Then there’s the matter of Snart’s ex-partner, Mick Rory (aka Heat Wave), who’s still a member of the Waverider crew. “How will Rory respond to him?” says Klemmer. “Mick has made a lot of moral progress, which might have reached its high water mark. So we will have to see.”
We still don’t know exactly when Captain Cold will make his big return to Legends of Tomorrow (Mick’s hallucinations notwithstanding), but it should be very soon.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow airs on Tuesday nights at 9/8c on The CW.
