The whole of the Nigeria social media went agog on Wednesday, January 10th when Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele was discovered to be in the cast of upcoming Hollywood superhero film “Avengers: Infinity War”. However, the whole excitement took another wind when her name got delisted from the cast list.
The movie’s website showed Funke was listed as a member of the Black Panther’s guards, the ‘Dora Milaje’.
Findings show that Funke was never contacted by the movie makers and did not go for any casting.
Reports say someone might have hacked into website of the movie and put Funke’s name there and when a Nigerian spotted it, it immediately became an internet sensation.
Even Funke got to know about it just the way many of us got to hear of it that Wednesday.
This explains why she never acknowledged the news on any of her social media platforms.
The movie makers rectified the problem yesterday and removed her name, hence you cannot find it again on the cast list.
