Legends Of Tomorrow At Comic-Con 2016: Dominic Purcell Talks The Atom/Heatwave Relationship

Legends Of Tomorrow TVO Dominic PurcellLast season on DC Television, we saw the launch of Legends of Tomorrow, which focuses on several fan-favorites of The Flash and Arrow as well as new DC Comics characters as they work with Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) to help save the world, through time travel. The end of the 1st season featured the arrival of Rex Tyler a.k.a. Hourman (Patrick Adams) who is from the Justice Society of America which will be a big focus in Season 2. The show will also be taking part of the 4-show crossover between The Flash, Supergirl and Arrow.

At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, TV Overmind participated in the Legends of Tomorrow Press Room with several outlets to chat with the cast and crew behind the show to get some insight into what is coming in Season 2. Dominic Purcell, who plays the former villainous Mick Rory a.k.a. Heatwave, was one of the great talents we spoke with as he teased what’s happening in the 2nd season and what’s coming up for our time traveling legends.

Highlights of the interview:

-How Mick will be going on this season without his partner, Leonard Snart a.k.a. Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller).

-The process of developing his further relationships after Mick became Chronos by the Time Masters.

-Whether or not he knew early on that Mick was going to become Chronos in Season 1.

-The continuing buddy relationship between Mick and Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) a.k.a. the Atom.
