Will Dominic Cooper return for “Captain America 2”?


Posted by on

With the sequel to “Captain America: The First Avenger” set to take place during the present day, it seems as though many of the characters from the first film will be left in the past. But the writers for the flick have said that there will be some flashbacks to the first film’s World War II time period, which leaves us to wonder which of those characters will return in “Captain America 2.”

Collider put the question to Dominic Cooper, who played a young Howard Stark in “Captain America.” Since casting hasn’t really begun for the upcoming movie, it’s not much of a surprise that he hasn’t heard anything one way or another.

“I just don’t know,” he said. “That one probably, because I’m the father, the next one I imagine will come later. But you never know, anything can happen to any of the characters at any time. They’re like the comics. But I don’t know. They’re incredible projects.”

Considering the affect Howard has on Tony Stark’s storyline in the “Iron Man” movies, we would guess we’ll see more of him in his prime through flashbacks in “Captain America 2.” But that movie is still in its development stages, as Joe and Anthony Russo were just brought on to direct the project and it won’t hit theaters until April 4, 2014, so we’ll probably have to wait a while until we know for sure.

Then again, Cooper could always appear as Howard Stark in a different Marvel movie — like, say, “Iron Man 3.” John Slattery played an older version of the character in “Iron Man 2,” but the inclusion of Cooper in a future “Iron Man” movie could help tie together the larger Marvel cinematic universe.

Speaking of the Marvel universe, Cooper admitted to Collider that the comic book world is still something that’s new to him.

“I didn’t really grow up with the comics,” he said. “But I had friends that were, and now I can sort of see the pleasures of them and how creative they are. When you work with people who are so passionate about their product it’s kinda inspiring. They start rambling on to you about, ‘Oh, you know, when you’re character in comic book 42, the emperor turns– ‘ and you just sit there nodding your head. But you’re amazed by their excitement, and it’s totally inspiring, although deeply worrying because you know you have a lot of people who have very, very clear views and ideas on how they perceive the characters.”

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
