Cooper Talks Captain America
Vulture recently chatted with Cooper at the Sundance Film Festival, where he dished a few details on his experience working on the WWII-set Marvel movie and playing Iron Man's dad.
"We learn the whole idea of where Stark Industries comes from, which is out of pure curiosity and creative juices and excitement towards thinking of the future and developing things for good," said Cooper. "He's a Howard Hughes. He's a guy that loves inventing, that's extremely intelligent, and that loves his lifestyle as well."
As for Stark's overall presence in the film, Cooper said, "He's important because he's part of the machinery that helps Captain America manipulate his body."
Howard Stark is not yet a father in Captain America, but he's definitely a skirt-chaser who Cooper said seems "like he's just come from somewhere in a tuxedo, from showing people his inventions and his new flying machines."
