Agent Carter herself may have accidentally let a secret slip. In an interview with Den of Geek, Hayley Atwell said, “There will be a repetition of characters. So Jarvis and Howard will be there with us again. Yeah, we can’t have a show without those guys.”

We already knew that James D’Arcy would be reprising his role as the teetotaling Jarvis, but having Dominic Cooper return as Howard Stark has not yet been confirmed.

Of course, it’s entirely possible that Atwell said this without fully thinking about it, just on sort of autopilot in talking about her show, or that she has out of date information in some way. After all, Dominic Cooper traded in being one of Marvel’s biggest billionaires when he took up the cloth to star as Jesse Custer in AMC’s adaptation of the Vertigo property, Preacher. His schedule may not allow him much time to be Howard Stark this season.

Like they did last season, Agent Carter will return to ABC during Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s midseason break.
