    We also got this dope poster. OR SO WE THOUGHT! I was moments away from ordering my own copy online when I realized something was off.

    Even though everyone's favorite Dora Milaje warrior — Okoye— is on the poster, Danai Gurira, who plays her, was not listed in the credits.

    The fans were...not pleased:

    Odd to not see Danai Guirira's name on this poster. Made room for every actor but her. #AvengersEndgame

    @MarvelStudios Me looking for Danai Gurira's name on the poster

    Y'all named the voice behind the raccoon but couldn't squeeze in Danai's name? https://t.co/IKCXRAu3QC

    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.

    Due to all the backlash, Marvel has released an updated poster with Danai Gurira credited.

    LOOK! They didn't even need to change much. BECAUSE THERE WAS ENOUGH ROOM FOR HER NAME IN THE FIRST PLACE!

    Marvel also gave a brief response on their Twitter account when they released the new poster, which was nice, but didn't answer any questions.

    Yes, thank you, Captain Obvious.

    Don't get me wrong. I'm glad she's up there where she deserves to be, I truly just don't understand why she was left off in the first place.
