Dominic Cooper has admitted that scheduling issues may prevent him from reprising his role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Speaking to Screen Invasion, the actor – who played Howard Stark, one of the chief scientists who created Captain America and also designed his attire, oh and also Tony ‘Iron Man’ Stark’s dad, lest we forget – revealed that his availability may stop him from making an appearance in the film, something that has been rumoured since it was revealed Hayley Atwell will be making a cameo appearance as Peggy Carter. So will see get a (likely flashback) scene or two of the elder Stark?
“Yeah, they mentioned that, they mentioned it to me. But I don’t know how… I’m too busy. I’m trying to film, I’m filming at the moment, everyday, and I’m really trying to make it work but I think I’m stuck in Budapest, so at the moment its really, really tough, like I don’t know how I’m going to achieve it. 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.”
“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.”
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is due for release on April 4 2014.
