While many of us suspected it would happen as they have long said that ‘Agent Carter‘ worked with Tony Stark’s father to form the the Strategic Scientific Reserve (SSR), Dominic Cooper has now officially signed on to reprise his role as Howard Stark in the series! From his great work already as the character in ‘Captain America: The First Avenger‘ and his brief stint in the role again in the ‘Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter,’ I’m so happy to hear that he’ll be joining Hayley Atwell on the small screen on ABC.
Even without the knowledge that Atwell’s character worked with Stark to form the SSR, Atwell had already teased his return a few months ago when she stated that “[Cooper]’s incredibly naughty. So I’m going to start the pranks as early as I can. He will come up with some very good ones, too.”
It was good to see the cast show up in Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘ and I think if they play it right, this will be both a hit of a show as well as the perfect thing to air while ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ is on its midseason break
