The people behind The CW's new superhero spectacle, The Flash, certainly haven't been shy about bringing the villains so far. We've only seen three episodes, but we've also already witnessed battles with Weather Wizard, Multiplex and the Mist, and plenty more villainy has already been promised. Now we've got a trailer for next week's episode, "Going Rogue," and it features not only a little mini Arrow crossover but the first appearance of one of the Flash's most enduring enemies: Captain Cold.
Played by Wentworth Miller (Prison Break), this version of Captain Cold doesn't have the bright blue fur-lined suit, but he does still have cold guns, and he puts to them to good use in this footage. Plus, we get a glimpse at a special appearance by Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), who's come over from Starling City to meet up with Barry, wear a very nice dress and get to know the STAR Labs team a little. Check it out:
Captain Cold's first appearance isn't just another supervillain fight for Barry, though. It's the beginning (as the episode title suggests) of a plan to bring the Rogues team of villains together on the show, which, if done well, would add an entirely new layer of comic-book-ness to a series that's already embraced its comic-book roots in a big way. Whether the Rogues will work on the show remains to be seen, but at least The Flash is more than willing to give them a try.
"Going Rogue" airs Tuesday, Oct. 28, at 8/7C on The CW.
