Captain America is no virgin: writers make clear

Writers of 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger, Christopher Markus, and Stephen McFeely, have finally answered a burning fan question: Did Captain America ever lose his virginity — and if so, when?
In a recent interview with Yahoo! Entertainment, film writer Stephen McFeely sai, “Why do people think he’s a virgin?”. The question sprouts from the Marvel pundit joke that as a result of the superhero being frozen in ice for over 60 years, he is a virgin- or at least has not had sex for a very long time.
“I think he loses his virginity!” McFeely laid the fan question to rest.
He explained his answer with reasoning, “If you look like that, and you’re going to the city to city, and you’re signing autographs for the likes of the ladies that he’s signing the autographs for, I’ve got to imagine that [he lost his virginity],”
“Steve Rogers isn’t a prude. He may be occasionally presented that way. He’s a guy that believes in right and wrong and all these things, but he’s not a choirboy. He’s a World War II veteran.” fellow movie writer Christopher Markus agreed.
Chris Evans, who portrayed Steve Rogers aka Captain America, was initially reluctant to take on such an iconic role as the Fantastic Four movies he was in were critically lambasted. But once Evans joined the team, he was very eager.
