Marvel Updates Avengers: Endgame Poster After Actor Danai Gurira's Name Left Out
The end is nigh.
With Avengers: Endgame now just over a month away, the Marvel marketing machine is gearing up to hit us with the usual bombardment of promotional material. A thrilling new trailer, which has a lot of new info about the movie, has been released, and it is accompanied by a striking new poster. The one you see below is actually a slightly modified version that Marvel has re-issued in response to complaints that it left out one of the featured characters' actors from the top billing.
While the previous poster was really just a teaser, this new one reveals all the heroes in truly cosmic style. Unsurprisingly it only features those Avengers who survived the shocking end of last year's Infinity War, including Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Black Widow, and Ant-Man. It also includes Captain Marvel, and shows the villainous Thanos in the background--someone we have yet to seen featured in new Endgame footage. The poster credits also confirm both Benedict Wong and Jon Favreau will appear in the movie, as Wong and Happy Hogan respectively. Check it out below.
This is actually an updated version of the poster. Despite the appearance of Black Panther's Okoye in the poster, some fans called attention to the fact that actress Danai Gurira's name was the only one absent from the top of poster, leading to an outcry over the omission. Marvel has since rectified the situation, issuing the version you see above and saying in a tweet, "She should have been up there all this time," along with the addition of a Wakanda Forever hashtag.
Avengers: Endgame releases on April 26, 2019. It's directed once more Joe and Anthony Russo, and the cast includes Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Paul Rudd, Brie Larson, Danai Gurira, and Jeremy Renner. There have been rumors that some of the MCU's longest-serving stars might be leaving the series after this film (in particular Evans), but nothing has been confirmed to date. We do know Endgame will be followed by Spider-Man: Far From Home in July.
