UPDATED 4:00 p.m. EST: Marvel Studios has corrected its error of making Danai Gurira the only actor on the new Avengers: Endgame poster whose name wasn't listed at the top. "She should have been up there all this time," the company wrote.

If you had to look at the new Avengers: Endgame poster and guess which one of the actors wasn't billed at the top, you probably wouldn't need more than one shot at it. The world can be awful in remarkably consistent ways, so it might not shock you to learn that the only black woman on the poster was the only one left out of the top billing.
Danai Gurira plays Okoye, general of the Dora Milaje in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Black Panther standout is one of the most prominent characters left from Marvel's most critically adored movie following Thanos' snap. Gurira herself is a SAG Award winner and a Tony-nominated actress/playwright who is also well-known via her 80+ episodes as a lead on The Walking Dead.
And yet the Avengers: Endgame poster features 13 characters and just 12 actors' names at the top, making Gurira the sole omission. Even voice actor Bradley Cooper, included on the poster as an animated space raccoon, is there. Gurira's name is among the small-font actors at the bottom.
It's fair to say fans noticed.
