Marvel fans cannot wait for Avengers: Endgame to answer the question of who survives and who will stay dead going into Phase 4, but those same fans got a bit of a shock earlier today when Marvel Studios revealed officially that one beloved character was in fact dusted by Thanos. That would be Black Panther's Shuri, who had been believed to be alive but thanks to a new poster she was revealed to be one of the decimation's victims. As you can imagine, that brought on a host of reactions from fans, who can't believe that Shuri is not among the living any longer.
Marvel Studios released a slew of new character posters from their anticipated film, featuring many of the characters we've come to know over the years. The current lineup of heroes is featured on fully colored posters while those who fell to Thanos' decimation were given black and white variants, and that included plenty of heroes like Bucky, Drax, Gamora, and surprisingly Shuri.
We knew Shuri was missing thanks to the footage seen in the Avengers: Endgame trailer, but we did not know she was actually snapped out of existence, and it's one more character that fans are hoping to get back after the
Shuri wasn't the only surprise in the poster reveals, but the other one was much more positive, as a poster revealed that Thor: Ragnarok's Valkyrie was among the living. We aren't sure whether we'll get to see her throw down with the other heroes in Endgame, but we're just happy she's not one of the heroes we lost.

Some fans assumed Shuri was one of the ones who made it through Thanos' decimation and

This might be one of the best comments regarding Shuri's fate, and now someone's ready for a fight.

And I'm ready to fight. You took our King AND the smartest person on the planet?! #AvengersEndgame"
Actually, April had a few more thoughts about Shuri's fate, referring to being a bit misled by the footage from the trailer into hoping Shuri was still around.
Except... Ant Man's poster is in color today, indicating that he survived the snap. So this pic you provided from the trailer must indicate the missing, not the dusted. That's why so many of us are distraught; today proves that Shuri was, in fact, dusted. #AvengersEndgame https://t.co/jjEP1Mr3iG— April (@ReignOfApril) March 26, 2019

Speaking of Bassett's comments, some are coming to terms that she lied about Shuri's fate or was mistaken. Either way, Shuri's gone, and it's leaving some

"I'm not really mad at Angela. It's just a shock, okay?"
One fan asked an interesting question regarding the state of Wakanda. If both T'Challa and Shuri are gone, who leads Wakanda? They seem to think M'Baku might be up to taking on the task.
"With T'Challa and Shuri
