Marvel corrects Avengers: Endgame after slighting Danai Gurira –

Even Marvel makes mistakes, and that’s definitely what happened with the new Avengers: Endgame poster.

The poster showed off 13 key characters – including Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark, Chris Evans’ Captain America, and Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel – but only 12 names of the credited actors appeared at the top.

The missing star was Danai Gurira, whose character Okoye could be clearly seen on the right side of the poster.

Instead, her name appeared at the bottom, hardly readable and alongside Benedict Wong and Jon Favreau, two actors whose characters (Wong and Happy Hogan) aren’t in the poster.

Many Marvel fans have been using social media to make clear their dissatisfaction of the omission of Gurira’s name from the top, pointing out that even Bradley Cooper, who provides the voice for Rocket Raccoon, has his name prominently featured.

You can check out some of the reactions below:

Marvel quickly realised the error of its ways and released a revised posted with Danai Gurira’s name up top. The studio admitted that’s where her name “should have been” from the beginning.

Elsewhere, the Avengers: Endgame trailer seems to confirm that Iron Man and Nebula make it safely back to Earth.

And the Avengers are sporting snazzy new red and white costumes, leading to speculation on whether their outfits serve a special function.

There may also be a hint that the Hawkeye mantle will be passed on to somebody new, as Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) is seen practising archery with somebody who could be fan-favourite comics character Kate Bishop. (Or maybe it’s just Clint’s daughter.)

Avengers: Endgame will be released on April 25 in the UK and on April 26 in the US.
