Marvel updates Avengers: Endgame poster to include Danai Gurira's name
The move comes after fans expressed anger that Gurira’s name was excluded from the top of the poster even though her character is featured prominently in the image.
The one-sheet was released today along with a new trailer, and it features 13 characters from the April 26 movie. But across the top, it only listed 12 of the performers.
That has changed now:
Gurira, who plays the fearsome head of Wakanda’s Dora Milaje, is hardly an unknown. Even before Black Panther, the Tony-award nominated playwright also starred as katana-weidling zombie-tamer Michonne on The Walking Dead, among other roles.
Her name is listed in the lower credits, along with Jon Favreau, Benedict Wong, and Gwyneth Paltrow, whose characters are not featured in the image.
But her exclusion above the title left admirers confused — and extremely unhappy.
