As Captain America: The First Avenger marks its 10th anniversary, an age-old debate is still plaguing Marvel fans' minds—is Cap a virgin?

Yep, despite the endless stream of MCU questions doing the rounds, the movie's writers Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus have answered this one.

"I think he loses his virginity!" McFeely said during a chat with Yahoo's Kevin Polowy. "Why do people think he's a virgin?

"I think if you look like that and you're going city to city, you're signing autographs – and the likes of the ladies he's signing autographs for – I've gotta imagine that..."

Markus went on to note: "The thing to remember is Steve Rogers isn't a prude. He may be occasionally presented that way, but he's a guy who believes in right and wrong and all these things. But he's not a choirboy, he's a World War II veteran."

Well, there you have it.

For his part, Chris Evans was asked back in 2015 about a love interest for Cap.

"It's funny when you think about it – he's probably a virgin," Evans told Entertainment Weekly at the time. "He's probably a virgin. I don't know when it would've happened.

"He was on tour [during World War II]," the star continued. "That's true. Maybe one of those [dancing] girls blew his mind.

"He's probably just a good guy. He was probably holding out for Peggy Carter and he's 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."

Captain America 4 has been officially confirmed.
