Marvel has bent to fan pressure and added Danai Gurira’s name to the official poster for Avengers: Endgame following a backlash over the initial absence of her name from the artwork’s main credits.
The latest trailer for Endgame was released earlier this week, giving fans a deeper look into what to expect when the highly-anticipated superhero movie is slated for theaters on April 26.
The latest promotional poster for Endgame, which also came out today, was initially greeted with a backlash from a number of fans who took exception to the exclusion of Gurira’s name from the credits at the very top – despite an image of her character, Okoye, being included in the main.

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
