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. (Yes, even Bradley Cooper and Josh Brolin got credited for their respective roles as Rocket the Raccoon and Thanos the gigantic, purple thumb.)

Marvel’s official Twitter account posted the corrected version a few hours after the original went live, captioning the image with the fairly awkward observation: “She should have been up there all this time.” Uh… yes?

Fans reacted to the news of the replacement positively, emphasizing the joy they felt for Gurira personally as well as the love they have for her character, Okoye.

No word yet on what role Okoye will play in the final battle against Thanos, but as a matter of form, we hope it is massive — like single-handedly spearing him into oblivion while Captain Marvel and Goose cheer her on massive. 

Avengers: Endgame is in theaters April 26.
