Marvel Studios has released an updated version of its newly released “Avengers: Endgame” poster after eagle-eyed fans noticed a glaring omission from the already-packed top-billed stars.
On Thursday, “Endgame” released a new trailer for the highly anticipated Marvel team-up. To accompany the exciting sneak peek, the studio also released the film’s official poster including the many heroes that survived Thanos’ infamous snap at the end of “Infinity War.”
However, it didn’t take fans long at all to notice that “Black Panther” breakout Danai Gurira’s character, Okoye, was one of 13 characters depicted in the poster, but was the only name omitted at the top of the artwork.
“Danai Gurira left out of the credits? Really? Do better,” one user wrote.
“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,” another fan noted.
“You got to have a meeting with your photoshop team. Danai Gurira isn't credited on top lol,” wrote another.
Fortunately for the “Walking Dead” star, Marvel Studios realized its mistake and reissued the poster with Gurira’s name at the top with the rest of the cast members featured on the poster.
“She should have been up there all this time,” a tweet from the studio, which tagged the actress, read.
The tweet, while an apology of sorts, is also a reference to a fan-favorite line Okoye has in "Infinity War."
Gurira's representatives had no comment when reached by Fox News. She has also not posted about it on social media. However, it’s worth noting that the Tony-nominated playwright’s most recent post on both Twitter and Instagram was in support of her fellow Marvel Studios sister, Brie Larson, urging fans to see the recently released “Captain Marvel.”
Gurira’s character got her start in “Black Panther” as the head of the fictional nation of Wakanda’s Dora Milaje. She reprised the role again in “Avengers: Infinity War,” where she fought alongside the heroes she’s pictured next to on the new “Endgame” poster.
