Cooper would reprise his “Captain America” role as Tony Stark's father, Howard, who would work with Atwell to fight crime in the post-World War II 1940s.
It looks like Iron Man's father, Howard Stark, will be appearing in “Marvel's Agent Carter.” The limited television series is currently scheduled for ABC's midseason schedule, during a scheduled hiatus for “Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
Hayley Atwell will be reprising her role as Agent Sharon Carter, originated in “Captain America: The First Avenger.” Now it looks like Dominic Cooper will be reprising his role as well. The first Captain America film took place during World War II, and “Agent Carter” looks to pick up the action shortly after the war's end.
It was during a casual interview at the Glamour Women of the Year awards that Atwell let slip that Cooper would be joining her on the set of “Agent Carter.” She was talking with The Telegraph about pranking her co-stars, when she said that Cooper was “incredibly naughty.”
“So I'm going to start the pranks as early as I can,” she said. “He will come up with some very good ones, too.”
Cooper has not been officially confirmed as part of the “Agent Carter” cast. ABC declined comment to TheWrap about Atwell's remarks.
