Howard Stark Practically Confirmed To Appear In CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER

Dominic Cooper, the English actor behind Captain America: The First Avenger’s Howard Stark, has seemingly confirmed he’ll reprise the role in Marvel’s sequel, Captain America: The Winter Soldier!

Completing its sixth week of filming just yesterday, with 10 more extensive weeks to go, Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier film has been dubbed The Avengers 1.5 due to its large cast of S.H.I.E.L.D.-affiliated characters. Now it seems Howard Stark, one of the founding members of the peacekeeping organization, will make an appearance in the 2014 “political thriller,” returning actor Dominic Cooper. “Well... It’s hard to say. We’re shooting something for it,” Cooper admitted to Total Film, after the English thesp was asked about reprising The First Avenger role. He added, “I’ve worn the costume again. But whether they just had me put it on as a joke, I don’t know! [laughs] It was good fun getting back into it and he’s got some very cool shades now. But who knows…”

Judging by Dominic Cooper’s uncertainty (and not to mention all that Steve Rogers will deal with in the present time), Howard Stark is not expected to feature much in Captain America: The Winter Soldier flashbacks, which have been said to center on Cap, Bucky, Peggy Carter and Arnim Zola. However, having helped to to create Captain America and his mighty shield, rediscovering the cosmic cube (which led to The Avengers events), forming S.H.I.E.L.D., and, of course, fathering Tony Stark aka Iron Man, Howard IS a crown jewel to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. What do you think?





“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” picks up where “Marvel’s The Avengers” left off, as Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world and teams up with Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, to battle a powerful yet shadowy enemy in present-day Washington, D.C. Starring Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Georges St-Pierre, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp and Maximiliano Hernández with Samuel L. Jackson and Robert Redford, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is directed by the team of Anthony and Joe Russo from a screenplay written by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely and is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series, first published in 1941. Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige is producing the film. Executive producers on the project include Alan Fine, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo and Stan Lee. The creative production team on the film includes director of photography Trent Opaloch, production designer Peter Wenham, editors Jeffrey Ford, A.C.E. and Mary Jo Markey, A.C.E. and three time Oscar®-nominated costume designer Judianna Makovsky. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is set for release on April 4, 2014. In addition to “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” Marvel Studios will release a slate of films based on other iconic Marvel characters including “Iron Man 3” on May 3, 2013; “Thor: The Dark World ” on November 8, 2013; “Guardians of the Galaxy” on August 1, 2014; “Marvel's The Avengers” sequel on May 1, 2015; and “Ant-Man” on November 6, 2015!

JoeMomma29 - 5/11/2013, 9:31 AM
I like his role in the first movie.

HAILHYDRA - 5/11/2013, 9:38 AM
Someone with Photoshop skills show me Dominic Cooper as Iron Man. I'm curious.
DrDoom - 5/11/2013, 9:39 AM
Why the fridge is Hawkeye not in this movie?
SimyJo - 5/11/2013, 9:43 AM
So its a cameo then
SuperSpiderMan5778 - 5/11/2013, 9:44 AM
couldn't find it on totalfilm.com....could this just be bullshit??? i would say so
superotherside - 5/11/2013, 9:53 AM
I liked him in the first movie, if RDJ ever doesn't want to come back as Tony, I think this guy would make a fantastic Tony Stark. All they would have to do is make him look a bit more Tonyish...

Can't wait for this movie either!

@Dr Doom
Because Hawkeye would make it a love triangle if Widow is supposed to have any kind of relationship with Bucky. That would add too many elements to an already crowded movie.

We should see what they did after Cap fall to water.
superherofan21 - 5/11/2013, 9:58 AM
Cooper was fantastic as Tony's dad. Out of all three actors who've played that character, he was the best. Glad to know he's coming back.
ThePowerCosmic - 5/11/2013, 10:02 AM
3 actors played tony stark?
Minato - 5/11/2013, 10:04 AM
2 actors played Howard Stark (Tonys pops)
1 actor played Tony Stark (the incomparable RDJ)
Minato - 5/11/2013, 10:06 AM
One took pictures as Starks pops in magazines for IM1
nach1wan - 5/11/2013, 10:17 AM
oh yeah, howard's the man =D
Ruin818 - 5/11/2013, 10:25 AM
Loved him in The Devils Double, great show of acting range.
TheRedSkull - 5/11/2013, 10:31 AM
I don't understand why he's required to appear in this. Although I did love Coopers portrayal of him in TFA
Ruin818 - 5/11/2013, 10:33 AM
A little off topic but was watching the 1st Star Trek and Unstoppable last night, Chris Pine would have been a way better Captain America in my opinion. I know its been said before, but i finally agree despite enjoying Evans take on the character.
StarkRaving - 5/11/2013, 10:36 AM
TheRedSkull, we don't know why Howard Stark is required in this film because we don't know the plot.
SuperSpiderMan5778 - 5/11/2013, 10:40 AM
grif u stole my awesome signature haha
Hulk2008 - 5/11/2013, 10:43 AM
Here is Dominic Cooper in the Iron Man suit

Inhuman - 5/11/2013, 11:05 AM
I hate flashbacks
natedetroit - 5/11/2013, 11:13 AM
I wonder if this was shot for the new Captain America movie... or if maybe it has something to do with the Peggy Carter short they are alleged to be doing. Definitely enjoyed his version of the senior Stark.
Jwe75 - 5/11/2013, 11:26 AM
How about flashbacks with H Stark and little Tony running around!? That would be awesome! :)
NoAssemblyReqd - 5/11/2013, 11:27 AM
It would be great if the past and present stories were presented in parallel, LOST-style.
rng86 - 5/11/2013, 12:05 PM

Howard as Iron Man
Timerider84 - 5/11/2013, 12:06 PM
They should reshoot the iron man 2 scenes with an older Dominic Cooper for the old footage Tony watches in the movie. Kinda keep the continuity going.
Gnyah123 - 5/11/2013, 1:24 PM
its funny cuz when i first saw captain america TFA ....and when he appeared i said to myself....damn!!
i can totally see HIM taking over robert jrs. place once he is done with iron man...he cud be/cud of been the next tony stark...then i saw him in TFA....and i said oh well that cant happen now..

but i can def. see him being the next iron man if he wasnt playing starks dad...he looks exactly like robert D jr. younger n slimer...
Sophisticated - 5/11/2013, 3:27 PM
You wanna do what what in my butt?
JustAnotherFilmGeek - 5/11/2013, 6:34 PM
I really hope they have the Winter Soldier actually kill Howard Stark , and maybe a mention that Obediah Stane sold him out to control the company . That would be amazing
TheCaptain - 5/11/2013, 7:34 PM
@JustAnotherFilmGeek
That would be very cool to put that in the movie...
mgeoff88 - 5/11/2013, 7:43 PM
Dominic Cooper is cool. I'm glad he'll be in CA:TWS, even if it's just for a flashback scene.
MarcusStrong85 - 5/11/2013, 11:37 PM
Quite Honestly, I just wanna see the movie when it comes out!
MementoMori - 5/12/2013, 12:05 AM
Looking forward to this and Mr. Cooper's return to cbm's.
opencurtain - 5/12/2013, 11:32 AM
I wonder could Dominic Cooper take over from RDJ when he retires ?
bababoozer - 5/12/2013, 1:07 PM
I think this will be an excellent movie.
IRONANdrew - 5/12/2013, 7:02 PM
I had NO trouble believing that he was related to Tony Stark. That's cool. I just really hope that Zola is in more than just flashbacks, if you know what I mean... And if you don't, I'll put on the picture.
Fogs - 5/13/2013, 7:42 AM
He was great in the first. Nice to see him back.

I hope they (he and Atwell) appear in a flashback explaining who Robert Redford's ** cough cough ** Zemo ** cough cough ** character is.
Rambaldi47 - 5/13/2013, 1:02 PM
I really hope the enemy isn't just Zola/Winter Soldier. I want to see Baron Zemo!!! And I'd like to see HYDRA still around.
