Marvel Studios confirms Dominic Cooper as the young Howard Stark

06.29.2010

We mentioned it back in May, now we have the confirmation.

Dominic Cooper will play the young Howard Stark in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER.

In the press release from Marvel Studios, no other details are given. Generally they have some sort of short summary on the character, but not this time. Just a brief plot summary, "CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER will focus on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the Super Soldier known as Captain America."

In IRON MAN 2, Howard Stark was played by John Slattery. We found out that he originally created the arc-reactor and the element that could stabilize that reactor. He was also depicted as a founding member of S.H.I.E.L.D.

When I first received the news I was hoping that Dominic West got casted...oh well.

meh...whatever...

he'll have 20 minutes screen time max and we'll all forget him after because the next time we see him is in iron man 2. That being said, marvel is going to break the bank with this trend because they are doing what wb/dc wants to do but boys like nolan (who is awesome) keep fucking up for them, batman superman and now green lantern are from 3 different universes, jla cant happen. thus you have the reason why this trend will rock fans (being optimistic here). plus, ever read cap' america? he

Who cares?

This movie is going to suck! It sounds good in theory, but will have too many characters and several terrible plots ala Iron Man 2, which in turn was the most disappointing sequel since Ghostbusters 2. I would give that honor to Star Wars: Episode 1, but I had seen Jar Jar clips before I saw the movie, so I kind of knew what I was getting into with that.

Oh, and this casting news just proves my point even further.

Couldn't have said it better. If there's one thing studios don't seem to understand it's that you don't need to include every single character in one movie. We've all accepted at this point that they'll each be getting their own film in time.

Eh?

I think you're missing the point. This is the Marvel Universe on screen.

This is no longer an Iron Man movie, or a Captain America movie, or a Thor movie. This is The Avengers parts I, II, II and so on, each one with a specific focus, but all together telling one huge over-lapping arc. It's unheard of in film, that's why it's so exciting.

Having a character in here that links Cap and Iron Man will build towards The Avengers movie, and that's the entire point.

How can using

How can using multiple characters be one thing that "studios" don't understand, when Marvel studios are the only ones doing it...and for the first time EVER also. Seems like a bit of an odd criticism.

To the Guy below me. In theory that all sounds well and good but there was a point in Iron Man 2 where I felt that it wasn't an Iron Man movie anymore and just a segway into the Avengers flick. Seriously it felt like they were more interested in throwing in tidbits to set up that film instead of making a good story. It felt like Nick Fury and Captain America's shield had more screen time than Mickey Rourke who was the main villain . I'm all for Marvel connecting their films but not that the

ok help me with something here, if bad films really do rule, shouldn't this be right up your alley since it sounds so bad?
