Danai Gurira has now listed by name on the top of new Avengers: Endgame poster, but only after she appeared (but was only named in the bottom section and not the top section) in an earlier version of the poster released Thursday morning. She was the only pictured character not to credited at the top. 

That partial initial omission caused a groundswell of support from fans for the Okoye actor to be acknowledged on the top of the poster, to the point that "Danai" is now trending on Twitter with 14.2k tweets.

"She should have been up there all this time," the studio tweeted. "Check out the official Marvel Studios' #AvengersEndgame poster. @DanaiGurira #WakandaForever"

Gurira's name was added third-from-the-last on the top of the poster.

Avengers: Endgame opens in theaters April 26.
