Dominic Cooper Wants in on ‘Agent Carter’

Dominic Cooper wants to play Howard Stark in another Marvel project — but that’s easier said than done, considering the character exists in the 1940s, and the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier is set in the present day. Still, Cooper sees one way he can continue on with the good ship Marvel: a role on Agent Carter, Marvel’s rumored TV series starring Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter.

“I saw Hayley recently, and I think that the Carter thing is possibly going to happen, so yeah. I’d love to [be on it]. I wouldn’t hesitate,” Cooper told Zap2It. “I would like to do any way possible that Howard Stark can make a return. He’s such a fun character to play, and I really believe that he could make quite an exciting character to watch more of.”

“I would just like that character to return because I know now that Captain America has moved on and has moved into the present,” he continued. “It’s very hard to work a way in which he should be in the current films, but you never know. There’s always talk of how [to bring him back], and I know I’d be very much up for playing him again.”

For now, of course, Agent Carter is little more than a rumor. But if it moves forward, and if Marvel is as interested as Cooper is, then expect to see Howard Stark on the small screen.
