Marvel released a short teaser clip for "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" ahead of Thursday's official trailer, and a poster unveiled this week generated more questions than answers about Steve Rogers and SHIELD.

Chris Evans reprises his role as super soldier Captain America on April 4, along with Scarlett Johansson as The Black Widow and new Marvel hero The Falcon, played by Anthony Mackie.

In "Marvel's The Avengers," Steve Rogers was still coming to grips with saving a world that is 70 years farther along than he remembered it.

Graeme McMillan of The Hollywood Reporter wondered if Captain America's positioning on the poster made a statement about the movie's tone.

"But should we be reading anything into the fact that he's got his back to the viewer — and considering where he's standing, to SHIELD itself?" asked McMillan. "Considering that those behind 'The Winter Soldier' have promised more of a political thriller than a traditional superhero movie, the idea of one man turning his back on the system feels particularly possible."

Sandy Schaefer of picked up a similar idea, believing the poster may be dealing with a larger theme of Captain America battling the Winter Soldier while dealing with his SHIELD bosses

"It seems as though the script for 'The Winter Soldier' ... may (explore) the dubious subterfuge and deception practiced by Steve Rogers’ superiors over at SHIELD," Schaefer wrote Tuesday. "It should be all the more interesting to see what sort of compromises Rogers is willing (and not willing) to make, as he navigates a far more complicated world than the one he left behind."

MTV's Alex Zalben said the background of Washington, D.C., hints that the nation's capital will likely be the battlefield, probably for a climactic battle with the Winter Soldier, played by Sebastian Stan.

"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" is the third film after 2012's "Marvel's The Avengers" megahit. The movie is promised to be one of the springboards for next cross-Avenger movie, "Avengers: Age of Ultron," scheduled for release in 2015.

"Thor: The Dark World" is in movie theaters Nov. 8.
