Yes, what you heard about She-Hulk in the credits scene is true. And it came from the mind of Kevin Feige.

The first episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is quickly establishing itself as something new and different in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. What’s new is the fact that it covers, or at least discusses, things that most MCU properties just wouldn’t talk about. Things the fans are talking about.

The first example is set early in the episode when Jen Walters (Tatiana Maslany) tells her cousin Bruce (Mark Ruffalo) her theory as to why Captain America, Steve Rogers, is a virgin. But before this conversation can be completed, Jen’s life changes forever.

Yet just when you thought the subject was dropped, the episode’s mid-credits scene brings it back. (Yes, there’s a mid-credits scene. In fact, all four episodes we’ve watched have them.) We flash back to the cousins ​​in Mexico. Bruce and Jen drink and Bruce tells Jen the truth about Big Cap and his Little Cap.

During a recent press event, io9 sat down with Jessica Gao, She-Hulk’s head writer and executive producer, to ask her how she managed to bring such an open discussion into She-Hulk, and she let us know where that last important piece of information was came from. Here’s the video.

So yes. It was Kevin Feige who not only didn’t stop Gao from exploring Captain America’s sex life – he also provided the very specific information that Cap lost his virginity on the USO tour in 1943. Also, that he was – obviously – okay with the amazing, meme-worthy “Captain America fucks!” Scream that ends the scene. Oh, and Cap himself enjoyed it.

Besides, it’s not. As implied in the interview, Cap’s first time will not be the last to discuss fan-favorite topics on She-Hulk. Future episodes will address the professional perks of being an Avenger, as well as very frank, very funny conversations about 2008’s The Incredible Hulk, a film that’s absolutely essential to this show, as well as the Marvel Cinematic Universe but rarely discussed because it’s set Edward Norton instead of Mark Ruffalo. Who knows what else might come up?

But right now, not only do we know Captain America fucked, we also know when and where. Whether we needed to know that is a whole other conversation. Check back soon for more She-Hulk.
