Funke Akindele’s Role In Avengers: 7 Things You Should Know by johnmj200(m): 8:56pm On Jan 11
It is no longer news that actress Funke Akindele has been listed among the full cast of the “Avengers: Infinity War” on IMDb as a member of Dora Milaje.

However, the actress is yet to confirm or deny the story even though she and her publicist have been reached for a statement, that notwithstanding, Nigerians have already taken to Twitter to express their excitement.

“Avengers: Infinity War” is the most anticipated movie of 2018, according to IMDB, and features Akindele alongside Marvel characters such as BlackP@nther, Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow among others.

Here are seven things you should know about Akindele’s role in the movie.

1. The Dora Milaje (pronounced dora-meh-LAH-shay) is translated in English as “Adored Ones”

2. In the comics, the Dora Milaje are the personal bodyguards of the BlackP@nther, recruited from every tribe of Wakanda.


3. As an ancient tribal tradition, the Dora Milaje are assembled as potential queens for an unmarried king. This is to maintain unity in Wakanda by ensuring the possibility of the king selecting a wife from any of the 18 tribes in the kingdom.

4. It’s customary for the Dora Milaje to shave their heads and have tribal markings. In 2017, Akindele shaved her head. It could be for the role, or not.

5. While most of the Dora Milaje are nameless, several like Okoye (played by Dania Gurira) Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and Queen Divine Justice are the most prominent.

6. They are the most accomplished female fighting team in the Marvel Universe. With ease, they fought the master Russian assassin Black Widow and almost defeated Storm.

7. The Dora Milaje are trained to kill, but BlackP@nther’s orders limit them to just injuring enemies.

Have you ever read black panther before??

Wakanda was the most technologically advanced civilization on the planet according to the comic.

Always seek to enlighten yourself before unchaining your opinion(s).

And stop being so unnecessarily sensitive.

Even though you are being overly sensitive like some guys rightly pointed out earlier...

For the sake of argument...

Are they wrong to depict Black people with such allegories?

But that was the past - the future is what WE can define and it starts from a change of thoughts and ATTITUDE.

they are wrong for such depiction

The earliest Europeans were Neanderthals who spent their time hitting each other over their heads with clubs, if we all begin to depict them like that, their descendants will get offended
