You might have noticed a big change in Avengers: Infinity War posters is that Steve Rogers has a beard. According to THR, it was discussed 20,474 times in its first 24 hours of the trailer’s release. The number must be on a new high by now. Well, Chris Evans sit down and talk to Thirst Aid Kit about the beard. They asked him about his feelings about the beard in general, his reaction to fans talking about the beard, and how long it takes to grow it. This what he said:
“Well that’s good. That’s good, because I like it too. I mean, I usually live my life with a beard. I’m not a huge fan of shaving, and it just provides a little bit of anonymity at times. I was really excited that the Russos and Marvel were willing to kinda give that look a shot. I think it’s cool! I think it kind of changes things up. We’ve seen Cap the same way so many times. He’s such a throwback, he’s such a classic. It kind of gives him a little bit of a modern vibe.
It actually grows pretty quick, luckily. I think I can get a pretty full beard in maybe a month, maybe three to four weeks.”
I for one think the beard looks great on him and what happened at the end of Captain America: Civil War, I think it’s fitting. He becomes an outcast at the end of the movie and he went underground. Many fans are theorizing about wider meanings to the beard, but I don’t believe in fan theories and I think it is just a beard and a sign of solitary confinement. What you think about his newfound facial hair?
