Dominic Purcell to join Flash / Arrow spin-off

Dominic Purcell and Wentworth Miller to reprise superhero roles in new US series.


It will be a Prison Break reunion (again) when Dominic Purcell joins Wentworth Miller in the upcoming Flash / Arrow spin-off.

The Aussie actor will reprise his role as pyromaniac Heat Wave who teams up with Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) -both actors made guest appearances on The Flash already. It will be their first series regular roles since Prison Break ended in 2009.

The untitled spin-off will combine characters from both superhero dramas, from Arrow creators Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim.

The series is expected to revolve around The Atom (Brandon Routh) with other cast members being Victor Garber (Dr. Martin Stein), and Arrow‘s Caity Lotz.

Purcell is the latest Aussie to be cast in small screen superhero shows, following Toby Leonard Moore in Daredevil plus Rachael Taylor, Eka Darville and Wil Traval in Jessica Jones, both due on Netflix.

  1. A case of when you have a moderate successful idea flog it to death. Hopefully they have a better idea than The Flash which is looking more and more like Smallville despite all their protestations, (they’ve even copied the 3 act Monster of the Week plus an epilogue of soap structure), except the students of Smallville High act more mature.
