Our friends over at Comicbook.com have learned that The Flash has cast former wrestler Adam "Edge" Copeland to play Al Rothstein / Atom-Smasher in the upcoming second season. And though he's a good guy in the comics, he appears to be a threat in the season premier.
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.
We were told that they would be introducing Earth-2 characters into the season, this appears to be the first instance.
The Flash returns October 7th to the CW.
