Nigerian screen diva, Genevieve Nnaji will replace Funke Akindele in upcoming Hollywood movie, Avengers: Infinity War, according to iMDb latest changes in its cast list.
It’s a disappointing report especially to Funke Akindele’s fans, seeing another Nigerian actress take her role.
However, we must note here that changes in the cast list is not unusual because the movie is upcoming and will be released later this year.
Funke was supposed to play the role of a general character called Dora Milaje. But right now, Genevieve Nnaji might take that role.
Buymt from all indications, Funke might still be playing that role because the character of Dora Milaje is a name used to identify a group of female warriors from the fictional Wakanda land. As we know it, Wakanda land has more than one female warrior – which might include the two Nigerian stars.
Note here that the plot of the Marvel superhero movie is unknown and the full cast has not been released.
Also, as at the time of this report, neither Funke nor Genevieve have confirmed or deny the reports via their social media pages.
