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.
Gurira does, however, appear in the poster's bottom roster alongside other cast members that didn't receive top billing, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Benedict Wong and Jon Favreau.
So now that we know she's playing an integral enough role to be on the poster for the film, the question remains: What will that role be? This poster comes direct from Disney and Marvel Entertainment.

The quantum realm is linked with time travel in the Marvel universe and the trailer opens with scenes from earlier movies - suggesting a return to events before Thanos defeated the heroes.
As for Nebula, she also appears for a brief moment. She will truly deliver if given the time to fully react to the loss. The first trailer was released in December a year ago and saw a lonely Iron Man giving a monologue: "being adrift in space with zero promise of rescue is more fun than it sounds". The surviving Avengers on Earth, including Captain America and Black Widow, team up to try and find the one way to reverse Thanos' destruction. Could we see a team-up with two of the most badass heroines in the universe?
