Danai Gurira added to ‘Avengers:Endgame’ placard by Marvel Cinematic Universe after retaliation. Gurira, who portrays Wakandan general Okoye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, popped up on the poster but she was missing from the A-rated cast. She was indexed in the lower credits list. Gurira’s exclusion enticed criticism on social media. Many criticising Marvel being racist.
“She is the only black woman on that poster. The highest profile post-snappening Wakandan, a firm fan favourite, and freaking actual DANAI GURIRA to boot. Put some respect on her name, damn,” a person tweeted.
Another tweeted, “I mean, they’ve got Bradley Cooper’s name in there and he’s just the VOICE of Rocket. Danai Gurira is the ONLY person on the poster not to be listed by name.”
“Um… why is the ONLY person who appears on this poster that is NOT credited Danai Gurira? I’m pretty sure that needs rectifying quickly Marvel! Mainly because she deserves her name up there just as much as everyone else. And also, because Okoye is Queen,” another tweeted.
Ensuing the retaliation, Marvel updated the poster, adding Gurira’s name with the likes of Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson and Robert Downey Jr. “She should have been up there all this time,” MCU tweeted while sharing the updated poster.
The studio on Thursday released their second trailer. This is final movie within the MCU’s current generation of superheroes. It encompasses of 22 films, including “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and lately dropped Captain Marvel. The film will release on April 26 this year.
