John Slattery Hasn't Been Approached For IRON MAN 3; Would Like To Star In THE AVENGERS 2

Were you hoping for more flashbacks to Tony Stark's past? Well, if they are going to be in the third installment of the hit Marvel Studios franchise, they seemingly won't involve John Slattery as Howard Stark. Hit the jump for more.



Considering the fact that Tony Stark's father is dead, it seems unlikely that too many fans were expecting to see him return in Iron Man 3 after appearing in a recorded message in Iron Man 2 (played by The Adjustment Bureau's John Slattery) and as an even younger man during the WWII set Captain America: The First Avenger (this time brought to life by British actor Dominic Cooper). However, in a recent interview with GQ Magazine, the Mad Men star was quizzed about whether or not Marvel have approached him for Iron Man 3 and had this to say.

No, they haven't. I was kind of hoping for that in the beginning, but the character in Captain America was 20 years earlier than the part I played, which was already 30 years earlier than the time of the film, so the short answer is no! Would I like to do Avengers 2? Yeah!


Both Slattery and Cooper delivered memorable performances as Howard Stark and while it's possible that both could return in flashbacks, this seemingly confirms that it won't happen for the time being. However, as the character played such a large role in the creation of S.H.I.E.L.D., who knows when or where either actor may appear in future. Would you like to see more of Howard Stark? Sound off with your thoughts in the usual place.
