Funke Akindele Will Appear In ‘Avengers 3’, And Nigerians Can’t Contain Their Excitement [OPEN]

Funke Akindele

Nollywood darling and our own very ‘Jenifa’ has stepped up. Funke Akindele-Bello who is also known for her comedy series, Jenifa, will be starring in the next installment of Avengers: Infinity War. Get hype!

According to the movie’s IMDB page, the hilarious actress will be playing the role of Dora Milaje, one of Black Panther’s guards.

In the Marvel universe, the Dora Milaje are the personal bodyguards of the Black Panther, recruited from every tribe of Wakanda. In Captain America: Civil War, it was Ayo, a member of the Dora Milaje, that uttered the iconic threat: “Move. Or you will be moved”.

Based on Funke Akindele’s pretty low placement on the movie’s IMDB cast list, it’s not clear whether she will actually have a speaking part or not. Well, Nigerians don’t seem to care about how big her role actually is — they are hyped nonetheless.


The movie, which will follow the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy as they battle their most powerful enemy yet, is set to be released on May 4. Before that, we will be properly introduced to Wakanda and the Dora Milaje in the Black Panther movie, due out on February 16.
