It’s slightly old news that John Slattery (from AMC’s Mad Men) will be playing Tony Stark’s father, Howard, in Iron Man 2. But yesterday the news broke that he will also reprise the role for The First Avenger: Captain America due out next summer. Though anyone familiar with Captain America will know that it’s only a reprise in the cinematic sense, as the Captain America time line will happen before the Iron Man one. You know, during World War II. And in other Cap news, Hugo Weaving has been officially cast as the Red Skull (Cap’s arch-enemy).
