In the first episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at LawCousins Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) and Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) intervened in an ongoing discussion that was uprooted directly from the MCU Fandom: Is Steve Rogers, the first Avenger and now former Captain America, a virgin?
While Jennifer enthusiastically brings up the issue that due to his superhero commitments before and after the freeze, he likely didn’t have time to be intimate with anyone, Bruce initially refused to discuss the private lives of his friend and colleague. But with Jennifer wearing it, the trusted Bruce finally said, “Steve Rogers Not virgin. He lost his virginity to a girl in 1943 on the USO Tour.”
Zhao said io9 that when Strong woman The writing team touched on this topic, and Kevin Feige was not only on board with settling the old controversy, but also set out to help them settle on the details.
“Kevin was really into that joke and was actually the one who volunteered to answer that question,” she said. “I can’t believe we’ve finally settled this issue once and for all.”
Zhao also explained why the show decided to take up the topic of whether Steve Rogers was intimate with anyone. “Our philosophy was really like let’s just do things until they tell us we can’t because if you start asking for permission a lot, you give people a chance to say no,” she said.
The Strong woman The showrunner also noted that when planning the Disney+ series, the team didn’t just think about what would be “fun”, but the kinds of conversations they and other fans were having. “What have we always wanted to see in the MCU?” She said. “There are some things like Captain America’s virginity that really surprised us that it lasted.”
Chris Evans, the actor behind Steve Rogers and former MCU Captain America, also responded to the show’s joke on Twitter Thursday, tweeting a laughing emoji alongside the compressed mouth emoji, indicating his lips were closed.
But in a joint interview excerpt Vanity FairAnthony Breznikanwho covered Captain America: Civil War Press tour and actually asking Evans about this years ago, he also had some ideas of his own.
According to Evans, who answered the question in 2014, Steve’s altruism is part of the reason why fans haven’t seen who he might have hooked up with. “Cap finally puts what he wants. This is Mo for him,” the actor explained. “And I think for a long time he refuses to bleed on people. So it is difficult to explore a man who does not want to make waves through his personal struggle.”
Evans went on to encourage the possibility of seeing an on-screen relationship with a woman for Steve, but admitted that he thought Steve might have been a virgin. “It’s funny when you think about it. He might be a virgin. He might be a virgin! I don’t know when that would have happened,” Evans explained.
When Bresnikan stated that Steve toured during the war and was going to be exposed to enough women, the actor suggested that Steve was “old-fashioned” and likely to be for Peggy Carter. But he also made another suggestion – which is now correct -.
“Maybe one of those [dancing] His mind blew the girls,” Evans said with a laugh.
