The Flash Spoilers: News On How Producers Plan To Change Wentworth Miller’s Captain Cold

It’s all about him evolving and surviving the new world order. Guns aren’t going to do it, so he’s got to have something a little bit stronger.” also talked to the show’s EP Andrew Kreisberg who promised that Wentworth Miller’s Captain Cold shouldn’t be compared to the comic version of the villain just yet.

“He’s not the villain that we see in the comics yet,” Kreisberg said. “But we’re going to get there.”
