While not officially confirmed by Disney/Marvel it appears Hayley Atwell, who plays Agent Peggy Carter, has revealed that Dominic Cooper will reprise his role as young Howard Stark in ABC’s upcoming Agent Carter series.

Atwell revealed this information during an interview with The Telegraph. During the interview she mentioned the on-set pranks Cooper used to play and stated “I’m going to start the pranks as early as I can. [Cooper] will come up with some very good ones, too.”

Dominic Cooper has already portrayed the role of Howard Stark in Captain America: The First Avenger as well as the Agent Carter one-shot included on the blu-ray release of Iron Man 3. The one-shot did conclude with Howard Stark calling in Agent Carter to assist in building S.H.I.E.L.D., so its no surprise that the show would expand on this idea.

Agent Carter has been green-lit for an 8-episode first season and will premiere later this year. As stated previously this update on Dominic Cooper has not been confirmed, but how would you feel about him possibly reprising his role as Howard Stark? Let us know in the comments.
