Peggy Carter will reunite with Howard Stark on her new show “Agent Carter,” as Marvel has just announced that Dominic Cooper will return to reprise his role as the father of Tony Stark in ABC’s upcoming midseason comic book adaptation drama.
Hayley Atwell is headlining the series as Peggy, who in 1946 was still reeling from the “death” of her boyfriend Steve Rogers while trying to maintain a professional life in the world-dominated of spying for the British government. The cast is rounded out by Chad Michael Murray as SSR Agent Jack Thompson, Enver Gjokaj as SSR Agent Daniel Sousa, James D’Arcy as Edwin Jarvis and Shea Whigham as SSR Chief Roger Dooley.
“Agent Carter” has been picked up for an 8-episode first season, which will premiere in early 2015.
Cooper was last seen in video game adaptation, “Need for Speed” opposite Aaron Paul, and also has “Warcraft” on the horizon. He will next be seen opposite Luke Evans and Sarah Gadon in “Dracula Untold.”
