A new 'Avengers: Endgame' poster appears to confirm that a beloved character didn't survive Thanos' snap, and fans are devastated

MarvelShuri’s fate has apparently been confirmed.

Apparently, another one bites the dust. To mark the one-month-to-release-date milestone, Marvel just dropped 32 new posters for the upcoming “Avengers: Endgame.”

A quick refresher: “Infinity War” ended with many of our favourite superheroes, including Spider-Man, Black Panther, and almost all of the Guardians of the Galaxy, disappearing into dust after Thanos snapped his fingers while wearing the Infinity Gauntlet.

But one character whose fate wasn’t explicitly shown was Shuri, the genius little sister of T’Challa played by Letitia Wright in “Black Panther.” Last summer, her on-screen mother Angela Bassett confirmed that her character, Ramonda (T’Challa and Shuri’s mother), and Shuri had survived.

When asked if she had disappeared, Bassett said, “No. Neither did my daughter. Shuri, she’s a bright girl there in Wakanda.”

But the new poster depicting Shuri in black and white along with other characters who we watched disappear implies that Shuri is among the fallen.

Needless to say, people are confused, sad, and generally freaking out.


Other fans are in denial.


Some people didn’t realise this was news – a split-second frame in one of the trailers appeared to show Shuri among the missing.

While we’re never happy to learn about another supehero turning to dust, we have to look on the bright side: Only a month until we find out Shuri’s – and everyone else’s – fate in “Endgame.”
