Funke Akindele

Twitter is going crazy about Funke Akindele being cast in Hollywood movie, "Avengers: Infinity War."

Funke Akindele has been listed among the full cast of the "Avengers: Infinity War" on IMDb, and Nigerians are reacting on social media.

The actress, who is most popular for her role as Jenifa in "Jenifa's Diary," has been cast as a member of Dora Milaje, Wakanda’s all-female special forces unit from the "Black Panther" comics.

Funke Akindele is yet to confirm or deny this story. Meets Media has reached out to Funke Akindele and her publicist for a statement on the trending story.

If this story is indeed correct, the casting would make her the first Nigerian actress to feature in a Marvel film. In the anticipated film, earth's mightiest superheroes assemble to defeat a powerful supervillain, Thanos.

Akindele was listed alongside other cast of the movies, including Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr, Scarlet Johannson among others.
