I have been waiting for Bearded Captain America since the summer when D23 had the nerve to show an Avengers: Infinity War trailer without showing the rest of us suckers who couldn’t go! There were whispers of Bearded Captain America. There were bootlegged copies of an alleged video showing Bearded Cap. And now, the new (different) Avengers: Infinity War trailer has dropped, and Bearded Captain America has graced us with his presence. Let’s discuss this beard shall we?
Avengers: Infinity War Trailer
First, have you seen the trailer??!!! If you haven’t, please do, and join the discussion. If you have, please watch again.
Bearded Captain America
Ok, now steady yourself. I know, it was a lot to handle. That beard tho. Normally I’m not a beard fan, but I am here for this! I’m going to try to refrain from using all the exclamation marks and shouting, but I make no guarantees or promises.
So last we saw Cap in Captain America: Civil War, he left his shield, because Iron Man was being a baby. Which, yeah, I understand his parents, but it wasn’t Bucky, it was brainwashed Winter Soldier. And I probably should apologize to that Cast Member that I got in an argument with about this very subject in a store in Disneyland.
So the trailer starts, and I’m looking, I’m looking, where’s Cap? I mean, he’s Captain America, show yourself!
Then you hear Black Panther say, “Get this man a shield.”
And out from the shadow emerges Bearded Cap! Oh, hey there, new screen saver. Then the camera pans to Scarlet Witch with a sigh of relief. Girl, I feel ya! I would feel the same dang way, except I screamed with joy. Same diff, right?
I love Captain America for what he stands for. Aside from his hotness (which can’t be ignored), it’s his goodness that makes me a fan. Now Bearded Captain America looks like he’s been through stuff. I feel for you, Cap, I really do, but if you have to go through stuff to sport a beard for this movie, then I’m sorry, those are the sacrifices you make. We’re here for you though, and your beard.
Captain America With Long Hair
And then as soon as I’m getting over the beard, the long hair is flapping in the wind as he leads the charge, like Cap does!! I mean, this is too much now, Marvel. But don’t stop, k? I’m going to assume that Captain America with his long hair and beard means he’s coming back stronger, like some people did me wrong, but I’m gonna save all y’all, because I’m Captain freaking America.
I don’t want any of your comic book talk of Captain America dying. My husband already tried to play that with me today.
So Bearded Captain America, thank you for making Wednesday feel like the happiest of Fridays. Thank you for getting me through this upcoming winter. Bearded Cap, I salute you, and I will now go watch the Avengers: Infinity War trailer yet again.
Here’s my reaction video to first seeing the trailer if you’re interested. If not, just go take a look at Bearded Cap again. It’ll fill your heart with love like watching 100 videos of puppies.
Avengers: Infinity War opens in theaters May 4, 2018! Who’s counting down with me?
Here are some Avengers party ideas, because we are going to be partying like it’s 1999!
