Characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe regularly experience slight changes in their performances in different tranches. A change that most enthusiastic fans in Captain America's beard in Avengers: Infinity War are. Facial hair became one of the most discussed elements of the film, though it was justified by the story that Cap trusted to be more concealed in his actions.
Current advertising art for the upcoming Avengers 4 shows how Cap shaved his beard, which has led to some dramatic reactions from fans.
Given that all we have is this one image, it's unclear how much of the upcoming movie will have a pure red cap, though, according to some fans, plenty of time is too much without its beard.
Scroll down to see what fans are saying about the clean-shaven cap and that Avengers 4 will be released on May 3, 2019.

Slide 10 of 10Make sense
It makes sense, especially if Steve has to re-appear after the snap as Captain America, he would not want to keep his undercover nomad beard. Rest in peace 🙁
