Captain America fans are taking a page out of the “Frozen” fans’ playbook and demanding that the Marvel hero get a boyfriend in his next movie.
The hashtag #GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend was trending on Tuesday, with many fans asking for a romantic relationship between Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan). Others, however, feel that giving Cap a boyfriend would be unnecessary.
Do you think Captain America should be gay in future movies? Let us know in the comments section after you check out a sampling of the debate amongst fans below.

#GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend If anything, I'd prefer it if new Spider-Man was gay/bi. New films, new actor, new ideas.

#GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend has to be one of THE DUMBEST things ever. If he didn’t start out gay then don’t make him gay.

#GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend He already has a female love interest, why do people try to change characters? Make your own.

“You cant just make a str8 gay”

#GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend because I only watch superhero movies because I’m obsessed with the sexuality of the protagonist.

#GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend bc sexuality is fluid. kids need to know. they need to know queer superheroes r real, valid, & just as badass.

If you want gay characters, make new ones. Stop retconning existing ones.
