Since Captain America: The Winter Soldier will be set largely in present-day America, it’s understandable that a large part of the original movie’s cast will no longer appear, as they’re already dead in the timeframe the sequel occurs in.
However, we can’t count flashbacks out, which is why some of the more important WW2 era characters will be returning, including Dominic Cooper, who plays Tony Stark’s father, Howard Stark.
“I went off and shot something,” reveals Cooper, “but I can’t even work out how my character can be in it. Wouldn’t I be dead? But anything is possible.”
“They are quite secretive about where they are going to go with the characters and how it will slot in, you have no idea. So you turn up, put your costume on and do as you are told.”
“I have definitely put the costume on. I have worn the costume and we have shot something, but how it’s going to enter into the next phase of what they are planning I don’t know. I sound so dodgy, I don’t even believe myself! I have shot some scenes.”
