Wentworth Miller will no longer be a series regular on “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” but is not leaving the The CW’s stable of DC shows – in fact he’s only increasing his presence.
The actor has signed a new deal with Warner Bros. TV that will instead see him jump between all of The CW’s DC shows in his role of Leonard Snart, aka Captain Cold.
This will be the first deal by WBTV for an actor to play one character across multiple shows, but may not be the last with other characters potentially following suit. Executive producer Greg Berlanti tells Deadline:
“We always knew that he wouldn’t be a permanent member of The Waverider. We also knew we loved him on the show and all the shows, Flash as well… (He) won’t be part of the team of Legends on board of The Waverider next year, but he will have a very active role on the show. In success we hope to continue with other characters finding their way across all the shows.”
Berlanti says the second season of ‘Legends’ will sport new teammates and a new big bad as part of an anthology element.
