Avengers: Infinity War was packed with fan-pleasing moments like Iron Man meeting Star-Lord and the battle in Wakanda, but maybe nothing was better than Captain America’s beard — according to some internet circles at least. Nothing says a character is going through a rough patch better than a beard, and Captain America had grown one glorious beard in his transition to Nomad. However, the beard will not be returning for Avengers 4, as Chris Evans subtly confirmed in a picture related to returning to set for reshoots. Check it out below.
In Avengers: Infinity War, Cap, and his team have been on the run for a few years after becoming wanted “criminals” in Captain America: Civil War. The whole ordeal hasn’t left Cap any less committed to helping others, but it has given him some edge as he becomes increasingly disillusioned with those in power. The only way to convey such inner struggle is with a beard, and Chris Evans can grow a pretty awesome one. However, the days of the beard appear to be over as Captain America returns to his clean-cut former glory.
Chris Evans is back on set for Avengers 4 filming reshoots, and the actor posted a pic teasing his return to Captain America Classic. Evans shared a picture of his clean-shaven face ( and his lovable dog) with the captain “senior year,” referring to how Avengers 4 will likely be the last hurrah for several longtime MCU actors. Good luck getting any actual plot details out of Evans, but at least the picture partly confirms that Captain America will be returning to his old looks for one last battle with Thanos for the fate of the universe.
A new Captain America costume was first teased in some leaked concept art, which showcased all the returning Avengers in new outfits, in addition to Ant-Man, Nebula, Rocket Raccoon, and Captain Marvel. In the image, Cap was sporting a new, blue costume (minus the shield) with a clean-shaven face. It’s unknown if Cap only takes this appearance later in the film or at the start, but it’s interesting that Cap is returning to a more heroic appearance considering that half of the universe is now gone.
