Wentworth Miller’s Captain Cold is leaving the Arrowverse, Supergirl casts Brainiac 5

Leonard Snart is set to leave Legends and The Flash, while Supergirl brings in a classic love interest

Wentworth Miller’s been part of the Arrowverse for a good long while now. He first appeared as Leonard Snart on The Flash back in 2014, then he was a series regular on the first season of Legends Of Tomorrow, and then he was given a deal that allowed the character to hop between series.

However, all that’s coming to an end. Miller posted the news on his Instagram, telling his followers that “I’ve had a tremendous time playing this character. It’s been an opportunity, an education, and a f-cking blast.”

Meanwhile, over on Supergirl, a classic love interest from the comics is joining the roster.

TVLine reports that Jesse Rath (Defiance) has been cast as Brainiac 5, a recurring role in the show’s third season. Here’s their rundown on the character and how he’ll fit into the show.

“Half computer, half organic life and boasting a 12-level intellect, Brainiac 5 is a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes who travels to National City from the 31st Century to help Supergirl and the DEO battle Reign, the villain that L-Corp CEO Samantha Arias (played by Odette Annable) is on track to becoming.”

They note that co-showrunner Andrew Kreisberg told them that “”Someone down the road will like Kara a lot, which will be a lot of fun.”

Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and Legends Of Tomorrow air on Sky One in the UK. Keep up with the latest genre news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
