In a new behind-the-scenes video for “Legends of Tomorrow,” Captain Cold and Ray Palmer butt heads as they both try to lead the group, and stars Brandon Routh and Wentworth Miller weigh in on why their characters don’t quite get along.
“Everybody kind of wants to be a leader in their own right,” Routh explained. “That’s kind of the fun of the first few episodes, as everybody’s jockeying for a position.”
“Ray knows a lot, but he doesn’t know a lot about everything, so him wanting to be the leader may get them into a little hot water,” he added.
“Snart is used to calling the shots, he’s not used to being part of a team, he’s not used to having to collaborate,” Wentworth shared. He certainly doesn’t like to be told what to do. Now that he is part of this kind of get along gang of supervillains and superheroes, how he fits in or doesn’t is what’s fun for me to play.”
Airing Thursday nights at 8 pm EST on The CW, “Legends of Tomorrow” stars Caity Lotz as White Canary, Brandon Routh as the Atom, Wentworth Miller as Leonard Snart/Captain Cold, Dominic Purcell as Mick Rory/Heat Wave, Victor Garber as Professor Martin Stein (one-half of Firestorm), Franz Drameh as Jefferson “Jax” Jackson (the other half of Firestorm), Ciara Renee as Hawkgirl and Arthur Darvill as time-traveler Rip Hunter.
