One of Nollywood’s biggest stars has a role in Marvel’s new Avengers blockbusterjenifa

When Marvel’s next Avengers movie is released this May, Nollywood fans will have an extra reason to get excited about the franchise blockbuster.

Funke Akindele, one of the biggest stars in Nigeria’s Nollywood movie industry, has been listed among the full cast of the Avengers: Infinity War on IMDb, the movie database website owned by Amazon. Akindele is currently listed to play a role as a member of Dora Milaje, Wakanda’s all-female special forces unit from the Black Panther comics. Avengers: Infinity War is scheduled for release on May 4, 2018. A sequel is planned for May 3, 2019.

Right now it seems likely Akindele will make the final cut of the movie. Even if it ends up being a minor role relative to her Nollywood superstar status it would still be a major breakthrough for the homegrown movie industry which has blossomed rapidly in recent years.

 

Avengers 4 is a climax of sorts after a decade of build-up in Marvel’s earlier movies and will be released nearly 10 years to the day when Iron Man, the first movie in Marvel’s cinematic Avengers universe, debuted. It will see several superheroes from different franchises which are part of the cinematic universe appear together in a movie for the first time. As such, Akindele will star alongside some of Hollywood’s biggest names including Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Don Cheadle, Zoe Saldana and Chris Pratt.

Lagos-born Akindele will not be the first Avengers connection to Africa’s largest city. In 2016’s Captain America Civil War, there was a prominent fight scene set in the chaos of Lagos. And there was some bemusement by Nigerians with the American pronunciation of Lagos as “Lah-gos”.

 

The Dora Milaje (pronounced "dora-meh-LAH-shay") are the personal bodyguards of the Black Panther, recruited from every tribe of Wakanda. In addition with their protective function, they are also a pool of superior Wakandan women. An ancient tribal tradition, the Dora Milaje were assembled as potential queens

 

The Dora Milaje are an elite group of female bodyguards, and potential wives, of the King of Wakanda.... In the comics, the Dora Milaje are the personal bodyguards and royal security of the Black Panther, recruited from every tribe of Wakanda.

 

Funke Akindele, Actress: Avengers: Infinity War. Funke Akindele was born on August 24, 1976 in Ikorodu, Lagos State, Nigeria as Akindele Olufunke Ayotunde. She is an actress and writer, known for Avengers: Infinity War (2018), Agbefo (2006) and 13th Day: Ojó ketàlá (2005)
