Did Captain America hide his beard?

The actor's contract with the other production established that he should have facial hair, so it was not an option to shave in order to shoot the post-credits scene.

Captain America

It was 2012 and The Avengers hit theaters to change the way we consume superhero movies. For the first time Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) joined forces to save the world of a disaster orchestrated by Loki (Tom Hiddleston). However, there is a detail of that occasion that is curious to mention.

At the last minute, Kevin Feige and company decided that it was a good idea to shoot a post-credit scene in which we saw superheroes eating shawarma, one of the most fun and memorable moments in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, by then they were already on the press tour and obviously several actors were already preparing for their next roles. In the case of Chris Evans, he grew his beard to be able to play his character in Snowpiercer, a film directed by Bong Joon Ho (Parasite).


The actor's contract with the other production established that he should have facial hair, so it was not an option to shave in order to shoot the post-credits scene. That is how Marvel Studios decided to adapt light prostheses to hide his beard, but it was not enough to hide what was really happening, so Evans had to put his hand on his face in the shot. This is also the reason why Steve Rogers is the only character in the scene who is not eating and does not look relaxed, unlike his teammates.

As we know, years later the studio decided to give the superhero a new look and for that reason we saw Captain America with everything and a beard, this to accentuate his role as a fugitive that he had to fulfill after the disgust with Iron Man and the problem detonated in Civil War In Avengers: Endgame decided to return to normal, as it was shaved after having returned with his colleagues to save the universe of Thanos (Josh Brolin).

No doubt a curiosity about this moment in the Saga of Infinity and that if you see the scene again you will probably look closely at the pose of Chris Evans to prevent his beard from being discovered.
