    I still say they should do this story idea:
    A sort of love triangle that reflects his inner turmoil about where his life is heading, the two paths he can take.
    And then add the stuff about the Winter Soldier on top of all that.

    So, maybe, he sets himself up a new life outside of being Cap where he meets Bernie, but then the Winter Soldier stuff brings him and Agent Carter together. The turmoil also can be effected, one way or the other, by Bucky and the Winter Soldier. Maybe it makes him feel he should retire from being Cap, maybe it makes him feel he cannot ever retire. Maybe if Bucky becomes good again it opens the door for him to retire being Cap, pass it on like in the comics.

    Yeah, but Steve can't get no satisfaction from an abstract concept. He needs some girly action.

    It's too bad they can't bring back Hayley Atwell. She was perfect.

    Since Marvel has been very interested with the cast of Scott Pilgrim.. including hiring Chris Evans.. looking at Mary Elizabeth Winstead (for Maria Hill), Anna Kendrick (Cap 2) and Brandon Routh (rumored for Guardians)... I wouldn't mind seeing Brie Larson at least being considered for Sharon or even Mockingbird..

    If she got more muscular/toned than what she looked like in 21 Jump Street, I'd be happy.

    Pretty sure he's a virgin, considering he'd never really even interacted with a woman before Maggie and I don't think they had sex.

    Her in that dress? Dayum.

    I really loved her. She was one of the best things about the movie IMO.

    Who's Maggie....? You mean Peggy Carter....?

    Look, people get a lot of mileage out of the "90-100 Year Old Virgin" bit, but there's no evidence to prove that Steve never got laid during WWII. Or before WWII, for that matter. The hapless romantics out there like to pretend that Steve and Peggy were this match-made-in-heaven couple and that he dutifully remained chaste and virgin for that dance that would never happen....

    ....but realistically, the dude was a young, good-looking guy even as a wimp, and he actually had a double date before the whole Super Soldier Serum thing; and then he was surrounded by a bevy of beautiful USO dancers for a good part of the early war; and after he bulked up with Super Steroids, Private Lorraine probably represented one of a ton of women who willingly threw themselves at Cap.

    If he remained "chaste" through all that, with or without Peggy Carter, let's face it: he had to be in the closet. There's just no way a red-blooded all-American boy from Brooklyn would've passed on at least one of those many opportunities.

    Well whether it's believable or not, the movie clearly implied that was indeed the case, from the very thinly veiled "waiting for the right partner" metaphor that they kept running to the very end, to Steve being horrified at the very thought that Peggy might suspect him of having any kind of relations with another girl (when Natalie Dormer stole a kiss). In fact, I think his incredibly uncomfortable behavior during that whole scene, even before Peggy walked, in is evidence enough that Steve was still very much in virgin territory at that point. They wanted us to believe that Steve had eyes for no girl other than Peggy, regardless of how unrealistic that may seem.

    Steve will definitely get some sort of a love interest; there's no way that Disney and Marvel will pass up on that chance; especially with every major male avenger having had some sort of a love interest already.

    I totally agree with you. Virgin!Steve saving himself for Peggy is a sweet, romantic notion but it's very unrealistic. In the Star-Spangled Man montage, they made it clear that Steve got plenty of attention from beautiful young women and seemed (shyly) to respond. During that time he and Peggy were no more than professional acquaintances who hadn't even seen each other for months. There he was, a handsome, young man who had never been able to get women to pay attention to him before, suddenly surrounded by females who practically swooned in his presence. On top of that, Captain America and the Star-Spangled Dancers traveled to dozens of cities together, which gave him plenty of time to get to know some (or all) of them much better. Steve would have to have been either a saint, a eunuch or gay not to take advantage of his newfound opportunities during that long tour.

    Steve's reaction to Private Lorraine's predatory advances came after he and Peggy had reunited at the front. With Peggy around constantly, Steve had realistic hopes of having a relationship with her, whereas before that hadn't been possible. Naturally, he didn't want to get entangled with any other woman then.

    If you're after realism, then there's no way that a white, not-all-that-educated kid from Brooklyn in the forties would have been cool with black or Asian people, or a German person, for that matter.

    The thing about Steve is he isn't a real person and so he doesn't have to behave in a way realistic. He behave in accordance to the whims of the people writing him, so he can be very racially tolerant and he can be the chaste romantic type.

    Besides, a big theme of the first movie is that Steve doesn't change after he becomes a big, strong man. So if skinny Steve is a dude who could never get any female attention -and this is something we learn from the man himself, as well as see for ourselves- and he proclaims he's waiting for the right partner, and he he goes from that to having sex with random women, that kind of defeats the message.

    This statement is ignorant. My parents were in this category and never displayed any form of racism whatsoever. They even relocated to the South, where I grew up and they treated people of all colors with respect and kindness.

    I admit I was generalizing for effect, but you can't deny that wasn't the widespread sentiment at the time.

    There were exceptions of course, as there are to any other predominant behavior. Such as people not having sex even though they can.

    Yeah, gotta admit I was a little shocked at that statement, Bull. That's a "WTF....???!"

    And Steve definitely defies the racist stereotype you're creating anyway....just look at the makeup of the Howling Commandos. And even beyond that, comic-book Steve showed even more racial tolerance in the whole Isaiah Bradley saga, among others. Not sure why you even dragged race into a discussion about Steve's sexuality anyway, but whatever.

    I think it came from him wanting Steve to be a bigoted, male chauvinist jerk from the 1940s, out of the assumption that everyone from that time period was a bigoted, male chauvinist jerk.

    Yeah, I noticed. Which is why I pointed out those three categories; Asian, Black, and in reference to Erskine, German.

    My point is that just as Steve would defy convention when it came to race relations, associating with non-white then it is just as possible that he chooses not to be sexually active.

    Steve does what he chooses, even when the norm is that he does the opposite.

    Yeah, that's exactly what I wanted.:whatever:

    I'm sorry, are you implying that in 1943, people weren't racist by modern standards? That there weren't segregated army units?

    The biggest aspect of his character that they focused on is that he identifies with the underdog, "the little guy," having been one himself. I think that translates well into his ability to relate to and respect women and people of color. Why would he act like a bully after having been bullied his whole life?

    I'm not implying that. I just implying that someone could have been not racist in 1943. I've previously made fun of the fact that Marvel re-wrote America's history in terms of segregation in that movie, but I don't think it's out of character or unrealistic for Steve Rogers to not have been racist by modern standards.
