Marvel Studios confirms Dominic Cooper as the young Howard Stark

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.

Extra Tidbit: I then also immediately thought of something MFC member, bramb600 said: "I was wondering where I saw this guy. He got the role Chris Klein auditioned for in MAMMA MIA!"
