Jay Cochran - June 29, 2010
Following news from last month that actor Dominic Cooper would be playing a young Howard Stark, father to Tony Stark/Iron Man in the upcoming "Captain America: The First Avenger" movie, we now have official confirmation of it from the studio. See the press release below:

Marvel Studios announced today that Dominic Cooper has been cast to star as Howard Stark in the studio's highly anticipated movie "Captain America: The First Avenger" opposite Chris Evans, Tommy Lee Jones, Hugo Weaving, Hayley Atwell, Sebastian Stan and Stanley Tucci. In the film, Cooper will portray the younger version of Howard Stark, the character which John Slattery portrayed in "Iron Man 2." Joe Johnston will direct the film penned by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely.

Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige will produce "Captain America: The First Avenger." Alan Fine, Stan Lee, David Maisel, Nigel Gostelow and Louis D'Esposito will executive produce. The film will be released in the U.S. on July 22, 2011 and distributed by Paramount Pictures.

"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.

Cooper will soon be seen in Stephen Frears' "Tamara Drewe" and Lee Tamahori's "The Devil's Double." He was most recently seen in the Oscar nominated "An Education" as well as "The Duchess." Cooper is also well known for his roles as Sky in the movie musical "Mamma Mia!" and Dakin in both the stage and screen adaptations of "The History Boys."

In addition to "Captain America: The First Avenger," Marvel Studios most recently released the highly anticipated sequel, "Iron Man 2," starring Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow on May 7, 2010, and will release a slate of films based on the Marvel characters including "Thor" on May 6, 2011 and "Marvel Studios' The Avengers" on May 4, 2012.
