Marvel Tweaks ‘Endgame’ Poster After Being Criticized For Omitting Danai Gurira3 min read

Marvel Studios released the movie poster for the highly-anticipated Avengers: Endgame movie, but eagle-eyed fans weren’t having it.

The promotional artwork featured all 13 characters of its main cast; however, only 12 names were printed on it. Actress Danai Gurira, known for her character ‘Okoye’ in Black Panther, was not credited at the top, although her name was included in the small print below.

It did not take long for fans to call Marvel out. The company then reacted swiftly, reposting a second version of the poster. However, it did not apologize for the previous mishap, and only offered a brief response on Twitter.

“She should have been up there all this time. Check out the official Marvel Studios’ #AvengersEndgame poster,” Marvel tweeted.

Gurira’s fans were offended that her name had been excluded from the first poster, especially when she was the only black woman featured in the image. Additionally, her name was the only one that was left out from the top.

A Twitter user commented, “How can you have the only woman of color in the poster, but not her name? Everyone else’s name is there but hers. It’s an insult.”

Other Twitter users applauded Marvel for reacting quickly. “The internet wins again. Voiced our disappointment and Marvel reacted swiftly. Danai Gurira’s name has been added to the billing on the poster,” a Twitter user said.

Take a look at the poster below. Avengers: Endgame hits theaters 26 April.
