Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is ready to wrap up its first year of DLC. That means bringing out a trio of Marvel characters, two of whom are new to the crossover series and one old favorite making his return. On Tuesday morning, Capcom released a new trailer for the Winter Soldier, Black Widow, and Venom.

The Winter Soldier (a.k.a. Bucky Barnes), with all apologies to Bionic Commando's Spencer, comes into battle equipped with his own bionic arm. He also comes in with Chris Redfield's arsenal of explosive weaponry. What separates him from the pack, however, is that he's able to parry certain moves and even Hyper Combos. This makes Bucky more of a tank than anyone is expecting.

Black Widow comes in with all of the acrobatic moves that one would expect from a SHIELD agent. She can perform cartwheel kicks, air throws, and is able to crumple opponents with her taser. Her Hyper Combos utilize the agility seen over the course of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as she'll swing around her target before taking them down.

Venom returns with many of his classic moves from the first two Marvel vs. Capcom games. This includes his Venom Web and Death Bite Hyper Combos. The difference here is that Venom looks much more modernized and stylish, with the gooey symbiote effects turned up to 11. Venom's new Level 3 Hyper Combo completely devours his opponent before he slams his opponent hard to the ground.

Check out footage of the new characters below. Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will get Winter Soldier, Black Widow, and Venom on December 5. After that, who knows if Capcom goes any farther with this game's DLC plans. If the plan is to move forward, Shacknews has already offered up some speculation on who's next.
