Confirmed! Real reason Funke Akindele’s name was removed from cast list of Hollywood movie, Avengers
By Rita Chioma,
Few days ago news broke on social media that multi-award winning actress, Funke Akindele-Bello’s name was on the cast list of the upcoming Hollywood superhero film “Avengers: Infinity War”.
The movie’s website showed Funke was listed as a member of the Black Panther’s guards, the ‘Dora Milaje’.
Our investigation shows that Funke was never contacted by the movie makers and did not go for any casting.
According to findings, someone hacked the 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 her fans got to hear of it that Wednesday morning.
This of course explains why she never acknowledged the news on any of her social media platforms.
The movie makers rectified the problem and removed her name, hence you cannot find it again on the cast list.
