Wheeler, who acts as an executive producer on the series, held a press conference for The Cape earlier this week. Wheeler spoke about the superhero show, admitting that he is thrilled to have multiple villains, reports Cinema Blend.
"We are super fortunate to have two regular villains," said Wheeler. "I mean, I'd say they're kind of polar opposites. James Frain... plays this billionaire Peter Fleming. He moonlights as this sort of psychopath terrorist. He's this character of chess, this dual identity that he has - a killer and a master strategist."
He continued: "We have Vinnie Jones who plays this mobster named Scales. The character doesn't like to be called Scales, but he is this really brutal crime lord. He and Peter Fleming don't always get along so well but they're the two sort of initial villain forces that The Cape has to contend with."
The Cape premieres January 9 at 9pm on NBC.
