In Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the friendship between Steve and Bucky took center stage.
The climax of the new Captain America finds the two characters, who fought in World War II together, battling one another after the latter was programmed to kill his old friend.
Unsurprisingly, Tumblr read deeply into the relationship between Steve and Bucky and turned it into something more romantic. Whether it’s true or not (it’s probably not), their work is worth sharing.
We found some of the best pieces of work on Tumblr proving that the social network is convinced that Steve and Bucky, affectionately referred to as “Stucky,” is a real ‘ship.
It began with this line in ‘The Winter Soldier.’
Some Tumblr users played it safe…
There are image sets that don’t necessarily push the envelope.
But when you remember scenes like this in ‘The First Avenger’…
It was hard for Tumblr to not dive right in to create things like this…
One user is suggesting slight thrusts depict the two characters pleasuring each other.
One user thinks this 2-second shot is unequivocal evidence of their romance.
According to Tumblr, Stucky’s smiles in this scene mean they are each other’s better halves.
One person is straight up rewriting the film to make Stucky blunt.
Others are just making lots of art.
There are songs that Tumblr thinks are associated with Stucky.
Someone else made a soundtrack to their romance.
