DC’s “Legends of Tomorrow” season 3 will be bringing back some familiar faces, and it was recently revealed that Jonah Hex and Constantine could be returning to the “Arrowverse” in the new season. Another character who will be returning in season 3 is fan favorite Leonard Snart, aka Captain Cold.
Captain Cold will be returning, but when he does return fans will be seeing a new version of the character. Executive producer Phil Klemmer recently spoke with DC Legends TV, and he teased that this version of Snart will be the polar opposite of what we’ve seen in the past.
“It will be about as polar opposite as the Snart that he’s played on our show. We’ve got a cool pitch to justify that version of him, which I don’t want to give away. But it’s going to be really traumatic for Mick Rory, because he has deified this version of his dead partner in his head, and in a way, Snart’s return is his greatest wish come true, but the fact that he doesn’t get the version that he’s held in the back of his mind is deeply unsettling. Rory’s made a lot of progress as well in the meantime, but he’s certainly not ready to call himself a hero.”
Considering the fact that Leonard Snart’s loyalty has often been pledged to the higest bidder, we’ll have to wait and see which side he’s on when he makes his return to the show.
DC’s “Legends of Tomorrow” will return for season 3 on Tuesday, October 10.
After the defeat of Eobard Thawne and his equally nefarious Legion of Doom, the Legends face a new threat created by their actions at the end of last season. In revisiting a moment in time that they had already participated in, they have essentially fractured the timeline and created anachronisms – a scattering of people, animals, and objects all across time! Our team must find a way to return all the anachronisms to their original timelines before the time stream falls apart. But before our Legends can jump back into action, Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) and his newly established Time Bureau call their methods into question.
With the Time Bureau effectively the new sheriffs in town, the Legends disband – until Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell) discovers one of them in the middle of his well-deserved vacation in Aruba. Seeing this as an opportunity to continue their time traveling heroics, Sara (Caity Lotz) wastes no time in getting the Legends back together. We reunite with billionaire inventor Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), the unconventional historian-turned-superhero Nick Heywood (Nick Zano), and Professor Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Jefferson “Jax” Jackson (Franz Drameh), who together form the meta-human Firestorm.
Once reunited, the Legends will challenge the Time Bureau’s authority over the timeline and insist that however messy their methods may be, some problems are beyond the Bureau’s capabilities. Some problems can only be fixed by Legends.
