The lowly soldier who would become America’s answer to the threatening Axis powers of WWII is coming back to the big screen. Just as “Captain America: The First Avenger’s” backdrop was a war theme, it has been said the sequel will mirror a ‘70s political thriller. Now that the casting must be set, Dominic Cooper discusses if he will reprise his role in the first movie.
The actor Cooper who played Howard Stark, one of the premier scientists that created Captain America and designed his gear, discussed whether he could possibly return. “I don’t know how I’m going to get to… yeah, there was talk of it, and now I don’t know whether I can, which will be really annoying because I loved being part of those,” says Cooper. He attributes his inability to come back because of his arduous schedule. “You know, I think it was such an incredible time, and I think — you know the first one — they did such an incredible job of it. So, I will try my hardest to get Stark back into a flashback sequence or some description, but its proving rather difficult in terms of scheduling at the moment.”
Cooper is now promoting “Dead Man Down,” his newest crime drama which centers on the relationships between a few criminals which are entangled in seduction and revenge. Of his character, he says: “From my perspective, my guy is a completely sort of… I hope that you have some sort of care for him, even though he’s a criminal. He’s a lost guy and a lost guy that’s probably comes from a place that lacks any sort of love or care and he’s lost this girl and [thats] a sort of subject matter that we can all, kind of, relate too.”
“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” will be released next year. The newest crime film “Dead Man Down” is set for March 2013.
