Marvel released a new poster for the long-awaited movie & # 39; Avengers: Endgame & # 39; on Thursday morning, but the overwhelmingly positive response the company wanted was not there. Danai Gurira fans took social media to express their outrage after the actress was the only star of the film on the poster – and not billed at the top.
The poster contains all 13 characters, including Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America and Paul Rudd as Ant-Man. The heroes of the film stand together, are edited to appear as varying sizes and appear to be ready for battle, as Thanos, the villain of the film, played by Josh Brolin, is placed on the purple background.
All actors shown are billed on the top of the poster except ""star Danai Gurira, who plays Okoye in the film, she is one of the four female characters shown in the picture and one of the two African American characters. Actress fans quickly took Twitter to express their frustration that Gurira & # 39; s name was not included in the image.
Twitter user @VonKnight exclaimed the "photoshop team" from Marvel.
While, user @astarwarstori pointed out that Bradley Cooper, who voted Rocket the raccoon, was given the name, but not Gurira, who actually appears in the film.
One Twitter user took the solution in their own hands and wrote Gurira & # 39; s name on the poster.
It seemed that Marvel received the messages from the fans. The company tweeted a new poster on Thursday afternoon, with Gurira & # 39; s name added to the top. "She should have been there all the time," wrote Marvel Studios on Twitter. "See the official poster #AvengersEndgame from Marvel Studios. @DanaiGurira #WakandaForever."
"Avengers: Endgame" will be releasedand is one of the highly anticipated films of the year. It is a sequel to "Avengers: Infinity War."
