Studly superhero is not a virgin
Even superheroes get started
In a new interview about an old movie, two writers of 2011’s “Captain America: The First Avenger” answered a seemingly ever-burning fan question: Has Captain America ever lost his virginity – and if so, when ?
“Why do people think he’s a virgin? Asked filmmaker Stephen McFeely, questioning Marvel’s expert joke that because the character has been frozen in ice for over 60 years, he has never had sex – or less not for very long.
As for his opinion, “I think he’s losing his virginity!” McFeely told Yahoo! Entertainment.
His reasoning is that Captain America – and therefore also his alter ego, gentle artist turned super-soldier Steve Rogers) – likely had plenty of sleep opportunities during his USO War Bonds Promotional Tour.
“If you look like that, and you go from town to town, and you sign autographs for women like he signs autographs, I must imagine that [he lost his virginity]”McFeely told the publication.
His fellow screenwriter Christopher Markus is on the same page.
“Steve Rogers is not prudish,” agreed Markus. “It can sometimes be presented that way. He’s a guy who believes in right and wrong and all of those things, but he’s not an altar boy. He’s a WWII veteran.
Meanwhile, no one seems to be wondering if Captain America’s big-screen alter-ego Chris Evans is a virgin or not. Locals online, however, are known to wonder if Evans is, objectively, the “worst” Chris.
And the actor recently showed fans his less than superhuman side in an Instagram post displaying a massive bruise on his arm, acquired while filming the upcoming spy thriller “The Gray Man.”
“It’s like watching the leaves turn in autumn, but condensed into a painful afternoon,” the image captioned Evans. “(I had a fight with the Gray Man).”
