Marvel Studios adds Danai Gurira's name to new 'Avengers' poster

Marvel Studios quickly corrected a new “Avengers: Endgame” poster after fans were livid that Danai Gurira’s name wasn’t on it, even though her character from “Black Panther” was featured.

“She should have been up there all this time,” the studio tweeted Thursday, along with a new poster.

The mea culpa tweet is a paraphrase of a line from “Avengers: Infinity War,” uttered by none other than Danai Gurira’s character, Okoye, a fitting way to right a wrong. The studio also wrote, “Wakanda Forever.”

A new “Avengers: Endgame” trailer was released Thursday morning, a major highlight for fans, but after they saw the new poster that came with it, they weren’t very happy her name was left off it.

They were quick to notice and blast shade on the studio leaving out the name of the baddest woman in the MCU.

“HOLD the friggin’ phone here … WHY is Danai Gurira name NOT on this poster???,” one fan wrote. “She’s pictured, put her name up there w/ the rest of them! And don’t give me that crap that there wasn’t enough room! CHANGE THE FONT SIZE…or list them all BELOW the movie title.”

Another reminded Marvel of the Walking Dead star, “She is the only black woman on that poster, the highest profile post-snappening wakandan, a firm fan favorite, and freaking actual DANAI GURIRA to boot. put some respect on her name, damn.”

Another pointed out that a talking raccoon even got more Marvel love.

“I mean, they’ve got Bradley Cooper’s name in there and he’s just the VOICE of Rocket,” the fan wrote. “Danai Gurira is the ONLY person on the poster not to be listed by name.”

Another fan demanded an immediate correction. “@MarvelStudios, this isn’t difficult. Fix this.”

And Marvel Studios did.
