There is a lot to be excited about in the “Avengers: Infinity War” trailer, especially Captain America’s new beard.
Lead actor Chris Evans chatted about the fanfare around his character’s facial hair in an interview with the Thirst Aid Kit podcast. Hosts Nichole Perkins and Bim Adewunmi commented on liking the beard and, hey, so does Evans.
“Well that’s good. That’s good, because I like it too,” said the 36-year-old star. “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 Russo’s and Marvel were willing to kinda give that look a shot.”
Captain America was only ever clean-shaven in the Marvel Cinematic Universe prior to the new trailer for “Avengers: Infinity War”.
“I think it’s cool!” continued Evans. “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.”
The hosts noted how “people kept looking at the trailer because of your beard!”
“Avengers: Infinity War” serves as Marvel Studios quintessential crossover epic, featuring the stars of “Captain America: Civil War” alongside Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange and the Chris Pratt’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
