2018 has only started but it’s already ushering in major accomplishments for Nigerian entertainers. In the last decade, Nollywood actress Funke Akindele had ruled the screen with her ‘Jenifa’ character which started as a two-part movie before becoming a tv series.
This year however, she’s going to be staring in the Marvel Studios superhero flick ‘Avengers: Infinity Wars’.
Fans were delighted to see her name listed among the cast of the movie, along with Hollywood bigwigs such as Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Benedict Cumberbatch, Zoe Saldana, Scarlet Johansson and several others. Her character will be one of the members of Dora Milaje– an all-female group of special forces of the African country, Wakanda.
With a rumoured production cost of $1 billion, Avengers: Infinity War is set to be one of the biggest movies of 2018 and no doubt Nigerians will be trooping in to see the star in action.
