Cooper is most notably recognized as Howard Stark in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and his real-life significant other, Ruth Negga, has also spent time in that universe as Raina on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Both will now be regulars on Preacher, with Negga playing Custer’s girlfriend Tulip.
Production begins this summer for a 2016 release.
