No one quite expected how well the #GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend hashtag would take off, but the outpour of support for a Cap-Bucky romance took Twitter by storm a couple months back. The movement stems from a fan theory that Cap and Bucky are more than friends, with viewers pointing to their on-screen chemistry, and the great lengths Cap goes to save him in “Captain America: Civil War,” as sure-fire proof. While those fans are certain a Cap-Bucky romance is implied in the script, Winter Soldier actor Sebastian Stan isn’t so sure.
“Look, man, I think it’s great,” Stan said in an interview with GQ. “Movies are for people to relate to in whatever way they want. No one here is ever going to point a finger and say what’s right and wrong. For me, it’s like, Awww. It’s cute, it’s great. If someone takes the time to think about that, that’s great. I don’t think of the character that way, though. But there’s no right or wrong answer.”
When asked about the matter last month, Chris Evans also seemed open to the idea, but admitted that he didn’t read the material that way, either. “That wouldn’t be so bad. It’s just never been part of my approach to the character. My subtext didn’t involve that dynamic. I think even with the first Captain America film you see how drawn he is to Peggy Carter…I thought I put all that in the final scene, but maybe I didn’t. Maybe I was just gazing at Sebastian too much.”
Though it’s yet to be confirmed, chances are we’ll be seeing Bucky next in “Black Panther,” hitting theaters on February 16, 2018. As for Cap, we likely won’t see him until “Avengers: Infinity War — Part 1,” in theaters May 4, 2018.
