You can always rely on the internet to take a theme and commit to it fully. That’s precisely what happened when the new poster for Avengers: Endgame was released, showing 16 fallen Marvel heroes with the words “Avenge The Fallen” etched over their faces.

A victory for Wakandans (and publicists) everywhere! 

Following backlash from fans, Marvel Studios has corrected and re-released the official poster for Avengers: Endgame, the first version of which failed to properly credit Black Panther and Infinity War actress, Danai Gurira. 

Notably, Gurira was the only Black Panther cast member to appear on the poster  — mostly thanks to Thanos — as well as the only Endgame cast member to appear on it without credit.

“If you were shocked by [Infinity War], I think the second one is even more shocking, for other reasons entirely,” Hemsworth said in a recent Esquire interview. Avengers 4 — or Infinity War Part II — comes out in May 2019. 

He went on to say, “That’s what kind of blew me away the first time I read both scripts, is how they managed to orchestrate so many different characters but give them each their own separate shot and moments, and have it be elevated and feel fresh and unique—not just like a messy, thrown-together assembly of these guys.” Read more…
