The first trailer of Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War 2017 took the Internet by storm, and most of it surrounded the appearance of Captain America in disguise (Chris Evans) the new rugged beard. Facial hair on America’s shaved golden boy? Planet Earth rumbled, life was born and hearts were broken by its grandeur. Even more hearts were broken when Cap’s beard disappeared (or dusted? I’ll see outside). Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. He was too powerful an entity to last beyond a movie, as much as we could all bask in his glory for eternity.

All jokes aside, for now, Cap Beard was an expert style choice Infinity War exactly. The last time fans saw Steve Rogers was in the finale Captain America: Civil War, where he abandoned his shield and broke his fellow Avengers: Team Cap Edition members out of a maximum-security underwater prison. All of Team Cap violated the Sokovia Accords, which got the UN riled up, so the entire roster – Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson), Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen), and Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) — went into hiding.

Several years have passed since the events Infinity War turning around the movie While each member of Team Cap may have been involved in their renegade period (the script is packed, the filmmakers use a visual shorthand to suggest the passage of time). Natasha’s Targaryen-blonde bob is striking, but Steve’s beard is amazing. The look determines how much Steve has grown and what experiences he has undergone on the run; honestly, he’s probably seen some shit. While it might be silly to propose that line of thought at first, the beard makes you feel like a living person who needs no exposition. The pure hero dressed in all his bright colors is no more; We consider ourselves mature and mature men. It’s a edgy look that thematically enhances the dark tones of her new outfit. This Steve has learned many times the true gravity of war. Thus, Cap Beard sets the right tone for his character at this point.

A discourse on beards cannot ignore the moment of its debut. Steve’s entrance is the definition of chill, especially Wanda and Vision at death’s door. That familiar shadow-clad figure passed behind the train, then comes into the light swinging that beard so hard it could sink Titanic. When Steve Rogers shows up sans shield, but terrifying nonetheless, it’s obvious the gentleman means business. He made Proxima Midnight (Carrie Coon), one of Thanos (Josh Brolin) senior lieutenants, pause. (No wonder. Compared to his youthful 2011, Steve ages like fine wine—yes, as old as his calendar age).

Cap’s Beard makes Steve Rogers feel more inspiring and powerful

Who else is powerful enough to catch and hold a spear effortlessly in the air? Who else is capable of holding an Infinity Gloved Thanos and looking him straight in the eye as he shouts wordless defiance? Even Thanos says, “Damn it, bro.” Cap Beard was a biological breakthrough that enhanced the Super Soldier Serum’s powers; it’s canon, Brother Russo told me. Competent Natasha and Sam also level up their beards. Together, fighting in fluid ballet synchronization, the trio of superheroes take on Proxima Midnight and Corvus Glave (Michael James Shaw) they run away with their tails tucked between their legs.

Also, let’s discuss the comfort Steve’s (bearded) appearance brings to his teammates. Vision’s half-evil smile and Wanda’s tired, relaxed smile say it all: for now, everything will be fine. A man who inspires that level of devotion from his friends and protects those friends without question is the man I follow for something as small as a battlefield pendant and as big as the universe. Beloved King T’Challa of Wakanda (a lost Chadwick Boseman) wouldn’t have a tattooable “get this man a shield” about anyone except the Bearded Cap.

And it’s something to watch when Steve challenges Thaddeus Ross (William Hurt), the Secretary of State who sealed Team Cap in that underground prison. “I’m not looking for forgiveness,” Steve tells Ross levelly, “and I’m way over asking for permission.” Give a round of applause! Contrary to popular belief, Steve Rogers was never a rule follower. He’s been anti-establishment almost since comics debuted. He will always choose what is right and will happily greet the government if they do not prioritize human life. Never has this aspect of his character been more apparent than on screen Civil War/Infinity War duology Once again, Cap Beard’s presence emphasizes that Steve is no longer accepting BS at this point, please don’t call him later.

Every little thing Cap Beard does is magic (Sing it with me!)

Fandom mourns the loss of the beard every day, but it has to be admitted that its absence brings Steve’s. Final game look full circle. A street kid who has never backed down from a bully is the last one standing against the biggest bully in the universe. Controversial time travel aside, moments where a half-dead Captain America is tripping over Thanos, this is why I will always love and defend Steve Rogers. He is stubborn and resistant even in the face of certain death. This man will fight to the last tooth and nail for truth, justice and the true definition of the world’s way.

Still: imagine the beard existed in them Final game the battles Ten out of ten, a cinematic masterpiece. Thank you, Cap Beard, for all you have done for us.
