The anticipation for the Avengers sequel is building and fans noticed that something was off about the movie’s new poster.
Danai Gurira appears in the film and on the poster as Black Panther’s Okoye, however she’s the only actor not listed at the top. Even Bradley Cooper received his credit for portraying the raccoon.
Marvel fans and Black Twitter went into an uproar, and The Walking Dead actress probably wasn’t too pleased about the omission herself. But apparently Marvel caught wind of the outrage and released an updated poster with Danai Gurira’s name listed on the top. She should have been up there all this time,” the studio said in a casual statement.
Check out some reactions below:
Putting Danai Gurira on the poster but not naming her is certainly a choice pic.twitter.com/MXYAlCwTNA

BLACK PANTHER star Danai Gurira is the only actor pictured whose name isn’t billed at the top. Her image is larger than some actors who do get that billing. The only one from the franchise’s best and most profitable movie, and yet? @MarvelStudios, this isn’t difficult. Fix this. https://t.co/22miymysgj

Um… why is the ONLY person who appears on this poster that is NOT credited Danai Gurira? I’m pretty sure that needs rectifying quickly Marvel! Mainly because she deserves her name up there just as much as everyone else. And also, because Okoye is Queen 🙌🏻
