Sadly, Chris Evans killed off the beard after filming. RIP.
Marvel released the first "Avengers: Infinity War" trailer yesterday, to much acclaim. Yeah, Hawkeye and a few others were missing, but so many other characters were accounted for -- including Captain America/Steve Rogers. And his beard. And it was good.
Cap was left in a rough place at the end of "Captain America: Civil War," and he's returning -- just as Steve -- with a scruffy new look. Fans decided the new look was an improvement, especially appreciating the shot of Cap leading a slow-motion battle charge.

Other fans made reference to Henry Cavill's Superman mustache needing to be digitally removed from "Justice League":
BREAKING: Infinity War to add $25M to budget to CGI more beard on Chris Evans.— Shawn Madden (@shawnxmadden) November 29, 2017
At least fans are having fun, and they can keep enjoying the beard when "Infinity War" opens May 4, 2018.
However, Chris Evans is now clean-shaven. LaineyGossip shared a report on Chris Evans joining his fellow Avengers stars at a screening of "Wind River" to support Elizabeth Olsen and Jeremy Renner. Evans has short hair and no scruff at the screening.
Oh well. We still love him. Just not as much as Jenny Slate.
