Mark Ruffalo has some explaining to do.
The ‘She-Hulk: Attorney at Law’ star, 54, apparently forgot to warn his ‘Avengers’ co-star Chris Evans that his new Marvel Disney+ show revealed a tidbit about the secret of his Captain America virginity.
Warning: Spoilers follow for the first episode of She-Hulk.
She-Hulk – which premiered Thursday – follows the life of Ruffalo’s Hulk/Bruce Banner’s cousin Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) as a lawyer and as a superhero.
A common joke on the show sees Walters gossiping with her friends that Captain America/Steve Rogers died a virgin, a theory that has long floated in Marvel fandom.
By the end of the premiere episode, everything had been revealed. The scene featured Walters drunken Banner saying Captain America didn’t deserve to die a virgin.
But an eye-rolling Banner had had enough of her tirade and told her the truth. “Steve Rogers is not a virgin. He lost his virginity to a girl on the USO tour in 1943,” Banner said.
But as it turns out, Walters only manipulated her cousin into telling her the real tea about Cap, and she wasn’t actually tipsy at all.
Ruffalo recently joked about the scene, telling Entertainment Weekly, “I laughed at myself. I’m like, ‘Does anyone need to talk to Captain America about this?’ I did not. I was afraid he would have it cut. It’s too late now, buddy. The cat is out of the bag.”
Evans, 41, even tweeted his reaction to Thursday’s reveal by simply writing a series of ziplock and crying face emojis.
The question of Cap’s virginity was raised by Stephen McFeely, author of 2011’s “Captain America: The First Avenger,” last year when he claimed that Rogers actually lost his V-Card during a USO tour.
Ruffalo also discussed how “She-Hulk” is pushing the boundaries for superhero shows by showing the day-to-day details of heroes’ lives.
“It’s all the human stuff we don’t get to [usually see]’ said the Spotlight actor. “What’s great about this show is that we just see them as people and what their lives are and what these stories are.”
“It’s really different in that way, and it’s funny because we see this single girl in her 30s and when [head writer] Jessica Gao said, ‘I love how awesome the show is.’ I said, ‘I’m going to use this.'”
