When it comes to Danai Gurira’s contribution to the Marvel Universe, thanks to Black Panther, y’all better put some respek’ on her name…or just make sure you add her name.
This is a lesson that Marvel had to learn when they left the Walking Dead star’s name off the top billing of their newest poster for the upcoming film Avengers: Endgame. They instead, added her name the bottom, where you need a magnifying glass to see it.
BLACK PANTHER star Danai Gurira is the only actor pictured whose name isn’t billed at the top. Her image is larger than some actors who do get that billing. The only one from the franchise’s best and most profitable movie, and yet? @MarvelStudios, this isn’t difficult. Fix this. https://t.co/22miymysgj
"Ahh, great poster everyone. Looks fantastic." "Wait, Danai is in the photo but her name isn't on the billing." "We ran out of space." "Make the font smaller? Make two rows?" "Hmm....we could....nah, just leave it off. No one will notice." https://t.co/cMJNT0ZTUa
Why is every single character named on the top, even the motion captured and voice performances except Danai Guirira? Did they just run out of room? Okoye is a fantastic presence in the MCU in each instalment she’s been in. But no name drop?! That is some bullshit #Endgamepic.twitter.com/zONmyakEPi
