Marvel kicked off Super Bowl Sunday with a dose of patriotism. As promised, they premiered a new trailer for this spring's Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Get ready for two and a half minutes of glorious superhero action. Joined by Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Captain America (Chris Evans) tackles his most dangerous and personal villain yet.

The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) is a formidable opponent in every way. Much like Steve Rogers, he has a competitive edge over the Average Joe. He, too, has a scientific advantage that makes him bigger, stronger and faster than everyone else. Judging from the trailer, The Winter Soldier's arrival couldn't have come at a worse time for Cap.

Rogers is having some doubts about S.H.I.E.L.D. and the work that they do. He's unsure about what sacrifices he's willing to make for the greater good. It appears that he and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) are having some communication issues. At one point, the S.H.I.E.L.D director says, "Looks like you're giving the orders now, Captain." He doesn't mean that in a supportive way.

Marvel also released a new batch of photos, which you can view in our gallery.
