AN adorable couple has locked lips in front of the actors who play Captain America and Bucky Barnes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films.

Dressed as their characters from the Captain America movies, the two men locked lips during a photo in front of Chris Evans and Sebastian Stan taken at a convention in Philadelphia over the weekend.

 The photo posted on Twitter has sent social media into a frenzy as it comes off the back of the viral campaign #GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend, which called on Marvel and Disney to make Captain America and Bucky a couple in the film franchise.

Both Evans and Stan have been vocal supporters of LGBTI issues, with Evans declaring his support alongside his openly-gay brother and mother at a GLAAD ceremony in 2013.
