The omission of Danai Gurira’s name from Avengers: Endgame poster created a huge outcry online.

Along with probably the final trailer for Avengers: Endgame, Marvel Studios also released a new poster of the film. The poster featured 13 characters, including Thanos and Rocket, but listed the names of only twelve actors. Who was missed? Eagle-eyed fans pointed out that the missing name was that of actor Danai Gurira.

So after about seven hours of receiving backlash, the studio finally added her name between Karen Gillan and Bradley Cooper.

“She should have been up there all this time,” the company tweeted with a hashtag #WakandaForever and tagging her.

Fans had taken to Twitter to slam the studio for the gaffe. Many pointed out that she was one of the lead actors from the Black Panther film and one of the few black female Marvel heroes.

Fans were peeved that even Bradley Cooper, who merely voiced a character, was listed in the poster. Many said that they were not shocked or surprised by the exclusion.

Gurira plays Okoye, the general of the Dora Milaje, a troop of fierce female bodyguards who first appeared in the Black Panther film. The character is a powerful ally of T’Challa, the king of Wakanda and Black Panther, who eventually teams up with the Avengers. In Avengers: Infinity War the character helps defend her nation from an attack by Thanos.
