She-Hulk: Kevin Feige Decided How Captain America Lost His Virginity

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law debuted on Disney+ this week, and Marvel fans loved the first episode. There was a lot of excitement in the episode ranging from Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) getting her She-Hulk powers to her first showdown with Mary MacPherran/Titania (Jameela Jamil). However, there is one moment from the episode that really has the Internet talking. Jen poses the question of Captain America's virginity, and during the post-credit scene, Bruce Banner/Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) reveals that Steve Rogers lost his virginity to a girl on the USO tour in the 1940s. According to showrunner Jessica Gao, Marvel producer Kevin Feige had a say in Cap's backstory. 

"Kevin was really into that joke and he actually was the one who volunteered the answer to that question," Gao shared with io9 (via The Hollywood Reporter). "I couldn't believe that we got to definitively settle that issue once and for all." She added, "Our philosophy was really just like let's just do things until they tell us we can't because if you start asking for permission too much, then you're giving people a chance to say no."

Interestingly, the idea of Cap hooking up with someone on the USO tour came up when Chris Evans was talking to Vanity Fair in 2014.

"I think there's just so much to explore," Evans shared. "Not just with the evolution of myself and [Anthony] Mackie's character, but the reconnection with Bucky and ultimately a relationship with a woman. It'd be nice to see him—it's funny when you think about it. He's probably a virgin. He's probably a virgin! I don't know when it would've happened."

"He was on tour. Maybe, that's true," Evans added. "Maybe one of those [dancing] girls blew his mind." He continued with a laugh, "He's probably just a good guy. He was probably holding out for Peggy Carter and he's probably a little more old-fashioned in that sense. These are a lot of things that I think are giant conflicts, but they're also very personal conflicts. He's a very human guy. That's why I like him."

After She-Hulk was released this week, Evans reacted to the moment with a series of laughing emojis. This caused Ruffalo to respond with an apology. "Sorry bro. It was under extreme duress," Ruffalo joked on Twitter. 

The first episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is now streaming on Disney+ with new episodes releasing on Thursdays.
