“Avengers: Endgame” Poster Reissued After Backlash Over Omitting Star Danai Gurira


Marvel Studios reissued the official poster for “Avengers: Endgame” after a backlash over star Danai Gurira not receiving top billing.

“She should have been up there all this time,” the studio tweeted with a photo of the revised poster. “Check out the official Marvel Studios’ #AvengersEndgame poster. @DanaiGurira #WakandaForever.”

Gurira stars as Okoye in “Black Panther,” and is also a Tony-nominated playwright for “Eclipsed” who has also starred as Michonne on the hit AMC series, “The Walking Dead.” Gurira was one of 13 cast members featured on the poster for the new “Avengers” film, and the only black woman. But while the other 12 movie cast members had their names featured at the top of the poster, Gurira’s name was not listed. People on social media very quickly noticed and complained.
