Thanks to the brand new trailer that dropped during the Super Bowl, we just got our first glimpse at reprising his role as renegade-black-smith-turned-pirate-turned-cursed-sea-captain . As promising as it is for the franchise that it was able to reel Bloom back in for , the handsome heartthrob is looking veeeeeery different since we last saw him.

The fresh-faced young whelp from Curse of the Black Pearl (2003) is long gone. In his place, we have a crusty, weathered creature wearing a look of confusion and disgust that might mean he just got a good, long look in the mirror.

We haven't seen Turner since the final scene of At World's End, as he sailed to shore to cash in his one day off per decade and spend it with Elizabeth and their 9-year-old son. Aside from the addition of a fetching head wrap, he was unchanged.

Maybe Captain Will is allowed to get an exfoliating scrub before he goes to meet his wife, but not during his day-to-day-life on the Dutchman. Since Keira Knightley won't be appearing in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, does this mean we'll have to bear those barnacles for the entire movie?

The 13-year-old girl in you will be happy to know that Orlando Bloom is not half so deformed in real life. Here he is in Easy, the Netflix original series from 2016, in which he played a loving husband and young father who has a threesome with his wife (Malin Akerman) and the baby-sing-a-long instructor (Kate Micucci).
