Dominic Cooper To Play Howard Stark In Captain America
John Slattery said that he wouldn't be reprising his role of Howard Stark (Tony's father) from Iron Man 2 to make way for a younger actor. Now there is word straight from Dominic Cooper (An Education) that he's landed the role of the young Howard Stark in Captain America. Howard would become an important part of fighting the Nazis during WWII and even constructed Captain America's iconic shield. Cooper was once up for Fandral in Thor but didn't get the role. It's nice to see Marvel finding new roles for actors they've liked from previous auditions.
