Fans angry Danai Gurira’s name isn’t atop <em>Avengers: Endgame</em> poster

Fans are furious that Okoye actress Danai Gurira’s name was left off the top of the Avengers: Endgame poster even though her character is featured prominently in the film.

The one-sheet was released today along with a new trailer, and it features 13 characters from the April 26 movie. But across the top, it only lists 12 of the performers.

Gurira, who plays the fearsome head of Wakanda’s Dora Milaje, is hardly an unknown. Even before Black Panther, the Tony-award nominated playwright also starred as katana-weidling zombie-tamer Michonne on The Walking Dead, among other roles.

Her name is listed in the lower credits, along with Jon Favreau, Benedict Wong, and Gwyneth Paltrow, whose characters are not featured in the image.

But her exclusion above the title left admirers confused — and extremely unhappy.

The placement of credits is often a legal matter determined by contracts and marketing. Marvel Studios did not immediately return a request for comment.

Meanwhile, fans online are making sure Gurira is getting her due.
