'The Flash' Season 2 Has Just Added Two More Villains, Something Cold And Something Atom

The Flash season 2 information has been rapidly leaking since the San Diego Comic Con 2015, and two villain names and actors to play them have been released. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Snart family is about to expand. Lewis Snart, father of Captain Cold and Golden Glider, will be showing up in The Flash season 2.

"...Lewis is described as a cold-blooded, ruthless career criminal. Recently released from prison, he returns to Central City with a plan that will endanger both of his children."
The "estranged" and "abusive" father of two Central City villains will be played by Michael Ironside, who is no stranger to playing villains himself. Since The Flash character Lewis Snart really has no real story in the comics, there is certainly some room to develop the character any way CW wants.

You'll be able to catch the first villain father in The Flash on episode 3 of season 2, but that is not the only villain-related news.

Comicbook reports that the Atom Smasher/Al Rothstein will be another villain appearing in The Flash season 2. WWE's Edge, also known as Adam Copeland, will be playing this season 2 villain that the CW released a description of.

"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."
So, apparently, he is the opposite of the Atom Ray Palmer. However, this odd description has led to many head scratches because Atom Smasher is godson to Al Pratt, the man who was the Atom before Ray Palmer.

However, during Atom Smasher's time in the Justice Society of America, he became crazed and vengeful when his mother was murdered. He then traveled back in time to save his mother. It sounds like the Flash can relate. This particular storyline might fit nicely into the current events happening in the Flash's city in season 2.

During shooting at "Flash Day," VRShoots caught some interesting shots of season 2 battle scene between the Flash and Atom Smasher.

The Flash season 2 already seems to be getting deeper and more story-driven than its predecessor, a debut season that has been highly praised. The speed-force-like momentum of The Flash, as far as comic book adaptations go, is the CW's to lose.
