There is a mini “Prison Break” reunion on the way for CW’s “The Flash“. Wentworth Miller officially joined the cast ensemble as Captain Cold back in July. Miller’s Leonard Snart is the leader of the Rogues who uses miniature stolen cyclotrons to freeze objects. Purcell’s villainous Heat Wave a.k.a Mick Rory, is a member of the Rogues in the DC comic books. Miller is set to make his debut in episode four, while Purcell is set to join in a bit later, but both of them are set to star together in the tenth episode.
“The Flash” will branch off the “Arrow” universe story arch and will be filmed as a traditional stand-alone pilot. CW initially planned a backdoor pilot but Barry Allen’s “The Flash” will receive his own grand opening! “Arrow” co-creators Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and series scribe Geoff Johns will pen the pilot. “Arrow” helmer David Nutter will serve as director. Grant Gustin takes on the titular role, he is supported by Rick Cosnett, Danielle Panabaker, Candice Patton and Carlos Valdes. John Wesley Shipp, who played Barry Allen on CBS’s The Flash series in the 90s, is set to recur as the title character’s father. The spin-off is set to premiere on Tuesday, October 7 at 8 P.M. on The CW
Miller and Purcell was last seen together onscreen when they played brothers Michael Scofield and Lincoln Burrows respectively on FOX’s “Prison Break” back in 2009.
Courtesy of dc.wikia.com, let’s have a closer look at Mick Rory a.k.a Heat Wave:
“Heat Wave is a pyromaniac super-villain and enemy to the Flash, a founding member of the Rogues. His handheld flamethrower produces enough heat to melt the Flash’s boots. He has also been a member of Project Cadmus and the Secret Society of Super-Villains. Heat Wave was created byJohn Broome and Carmine Infantino, first appearing in Flash #140. (1963)”
