Entertainment Weekly got Wentworth Miller to say a little bit about his alter ego…
Are we to expect that the superheroes and villains will really just work together on Legends of Tomorrow? — Tim
“I hope the answer is no on the way to yes,” says Wentworth Miller. “Because if you stuff a bunch of rabid dogs in a barrel and roll it downhill, that’s something that’s worth watching.” However, despite his evil tendencies, Miller’s Captain Cold does have a softer side. “In his relationship with his sister, you see he does have a heart. And there are people that he’s willing to put ahead of himself, so now that he’s aligned with these good guys, for better or worse, they’re going to start influencing him and his way of thinking. I’m excited to explore his shades of gray so we see he’s not just a villain, he’s a man.”
