WWE's Adam "Edge" Copeland Cast As Atom-Smasher and Michael Ironside as Lewis Snart On Season 2 of The Flash Season
The second season of The CW's The Flash will feature former WWE Superstar Adam Copeland as Atom-Smasher.
Atom Smasher will appear in the season premiere, which is currently filming. Most comic fans will be shocked to see Atom Smasher as a villian. In the comics, Atom-Smasher is a hero. Al Rothstein, grandson to the villain Cyclotron, is godson to Al Pratt, the Golden Age hero known as The Atom before Ray Palmer took on the name. Prior to becoming Atom-Smasher, Rothstein operated as Nuklon.
Here is the description that The CW provided in regards to his character:
"One of the most powerful enemies we encounter this season, Atom Smasher has come to Central City to kill The Flash. His incredible strength and ability to grow to enormous size makes him more than a match for Flash and the entire S.T.A.R. Labs team will have to come together to find a way to defeat him."
The show’s producers announced several other major characters coming this season at Comic-Con, including Jay Garrick, Patty Spivot, and Lewis Snart (Michael Ironside), the abusive father of Captain Cold and Golden Glider.
The Flash returns to Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. on The CW in October.
