They Knew Better: Marvel Releases New 'Avengers: Endgame' Poster After Glaring Omission Of Danai Gurira's Name

UPDATE: After the backlash, Marvel has released a new poster, which features Gurira's name. The studio acknowledged the mistake on Twitter.


Previously reported:

While we are all hype about the new trailer for Avengers: Endgame, something about the film's official poster has left a bad taste in our mouths.

We see Danai Gurira is featured prominently on the poster, yet she is the only actor whose name is not billed at the top like everyone else's. How could this have happened? It likely went through tons of hands before it was published, so this definitely could have been prevented. And for crying out loud, if Bradley Cooper can get top billing as Rocket Racoon, then The Walking Dead star Dora Milaje leader Okoye deserves it, as well.

Fans aren't happy about it.

Also, the Avengers: Infinity War had way more characters on its poster and somehow managed to fit many more names on it than the Avengers: Endgame poster (although that poster did leave off Karen Gillian and Benedict Wong, who are depicted).

 

Aside from Gurira and Don Cheadle, who also appears on the poster, Chadwick Boseman, Anthony Mackie, Winston Duke and Letitia Wright will reprise their Marvel Cinematic Universe roles in the film.

The film is in theaters April 26.
