A new poster for Rebuild 2.0 on Evangelion’s official homepage reveals Asuka’s new name and rank as follows:
Second Girl Asuka Langley Shikinami (Captain)
Asuka’s new last name, Shikinami now shares a kanji with Rei Ayanami’s last name. Text for the new character, glasses girl Mari, shows her name to follow a similar pattern to Asuka’s with having two surnames, although her full name hasn’t been revealed at this time.
