It looks like Leonard Snart aka Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) might be having some daddy issues on The Flash Season 2.

Michael Ironside has been cast as Lewis Snart, father to both Captain Cold and the Golden Glider, Lisa Snart (Peyton List). 

Not much is known about Papa Snart from the comics other than he was an abusive father, so much so that Leonard spent a good portion of his time growing up under the care of his grandfather, who ran an ice truck.

Lewis Snart is now being 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."

Ironside will first appear on The Flash Season 2 Episode 3. Whether he will remain on the series and follow his son onto DC's Legends of Tomorrow remains to be seen.

The Flash Quotes

One mystery I cannot figure out is why some people come into our lives and why some people go. Others become a part of you. Some friendships feel like they'll last forever and others end far too soon. Not every friendship is meant to last forever. What does last forever is the pain when that person is gone.


Barry: I love you, Iris.
Iris: Oh. I love you, too.
Barry: When we were kids I loved you before I even know what the word love meant and then my mom died and I had to go live with the girl I had a crush on. Look. There were so many times I wanted to tell you; Jr. Prom, when I went away to college, when I came back from college, nights that we stayed up talking, all the birthdays, all the Christmases, but I, I never did. I kept it in. After I lost my mom and my dad, I was afraid that if you didn't feel the same way, I would lose you, too. That's the irony. I was so scared of losing you that I did. I know I've had our whole lives to tell you this and you're with Eddie now and I know that and I know my timing couldn't be any worse, but I just... I couldn't lie to you anymore. I'm sorry.
