Captain America Is No Virgin According to Kevin Feige and ‘She-Hulk’ – The Hollywood Reporter

Date:

Kevin Feige Knew Exactly When And To Whom Captain America Lost His Virginity, According To She-Hulk showrunner Jessica Gao.

In the debut episode of She-Hulk: LawyerCousins ​​Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) and Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) engage in an ongoing discussion ripped straight from MCU fandom: is Steve Rogers, the first Avenger and now former Captain America, a virgin?

While Jennifer excitedly claims that due to his various superhero obligations before and after the freeze, he probably didn’t have time to be intimate with anyone, Bruce initially refuses to discuss the private life of his friend and colleague. But as Jennifer wears it down, a familiar Bruce finally blurts out, “Steve Rogers is… not a virgin. He lost his virginity to a girl in 1943 during the USO tour.”

Gao told io9 that when the She-Hulk team of writers broached the subject, Kevin Feige was not only on board to settle the age-old debate, but also dove in to help them sort out the details.

“Kevin really loved that joke and he was actually the one who volunteered to answer that question,” she said. “I couldn’t believe we had to settle that issue once and for all.”

Gao also explained why the show decided to tackle the subject of whether Steve Rogers had ever been intimate with anyone. “Our philosophy was really that we should just do things until they tell us we can’t, because if you start asking for permission too much, you’re giving people a chance to say no,” she said.

The She-Hulk showrunner also noted that when designing the Disney+ series, the team thought not only about what would be “fun” but also about the types of conversations they and other fans have. “What have we always wanted to see in the MCU?” she said. “There are things like Captain America’s virginity that really surprised us that it went through.”

Chris Evans, the actor behind Steve Rogers and the former Captain America of the MCU, also responded to the show’s joke on Twitter on Thursday, tweeting the laugh-scream emoji next to the zipped mouth emoji, indicating his lips were sealed. .

But in an interview fragment shared by Vanity Fair’s Anthony Breznican, who covered the Captain America: Civil War press tour and actually asked Evans about this years ago, he also had some thoughts of his own.

According to Evans, who answered the question in 2014, Steve’s selflessness is one of the reasons fans hadn’t seen who he interacted with. “Cap puts what he wants last. That’s his way of working,” the actor explained. “And I think he’s been refusing to make people bleed for so long. So it’s hard to find a guy who doesn’t want to make waves with his own personal conflict.”

Evans encouraged Steve to see an on-screen relationship with a woman, but admitted that he thought Steve was probably still a virgin. “It’s funny when you think about it. He’s probably still a virgin. He’s probably still a virgin! I don’t know when it would have happened,’ Evans explained.

When Breznican brought up that Steve toured during the war and would have been exposed to enough women, the actor suggested that Steve was “old fashioned” and would likely support Peggy Carter. But he also made another—and now correct—suggestion.

“Maybe one of those [dancing] girls blew his mind,” Evans said, laughing.
