Some fans will be disappointed with this, others (like myself) couldn't be happier. I used to like the character, but that was before he became annoying. First, it was showing up way too much over two seasons of the Flash. Second, Cold died in Legends only to keep showing up both in the Flash and Legends long after he died because the Arrowverse Showrunners don't know how to keep characters DEAD.

I'm glad Miller is moving on because the less I see of Cold, the better.





It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?

Anyone getting the vibe some of the Arrowverse actors are getting sick of the Arrowverse?

The guy who plays Martin Stein is leaving Legends and the guy who played Malcolm sounds like he isn't coming back either.

Guess they are getting afraid if they don't pull the shoot at some point they might end up falling victim to the dreaded TYPE-CASTING, that has hurt the careers of so many actors before them, who became too well known for one role.

I for one am very sorry to here Snart is going to be gone. He was always great in the role.

Agreed. I like how Miller portrayed Snart. I will also miss his version of Cold when he's gone.

I actually like the character, though Wentworth Miller can indeed sell him badly. I can't help but feel that that is because he is bored though, the writing has not always been of a standard where Captain Cold has been concerned and this last year in particular has not given Miller anything to remotely challenge himself with, so a decision to make a clean break and depart shouldn't be criticised I feel, he has his career to consider and better opportunities undoubtedly await.
There has always been so much potential with the Rogues, the comics have exploited that potential, the television series has squandered and neglected it. A great shame as this band was one of the series strongest points, left largely untapped unfortunately...

Agreed. Too many of the classic Rogues have been criminally under used.

Mirror Master, Weather Wizard, Pied Piper, Abracadabra, Top, Captain Boomerang

I really want to see more of Mirror Master and Captain Boomerang. And the Trickster but Mark Hamill is probably busy with that franchise no one's ever heard of. \:\)
