It was reported that Akindele’s name was published on the popular movie review website, IMDB, where it revealed she would act alongside international movie stars, Robert Downey Jr and Chris Hemsworth, in Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity Wars.
Reacting to the news, Freeze and Tonto Dikeh expressed disappointments that Funke’s name was removed. They prayed that the incident paves way for her in the international scene.
Freeze wrote, ”Apparently, Funke Akindele was not billed to be a part of the latest #Avengers Infinity. The latest gist is that her pic was put there by a hacker.
”If only Marvel studios knew what the hacker had done for them, they would have found him paid him and quickly contacted @funkejenifaakindele, found a role for her, shot her along with the cast and with the publicity and sales in Africa alone, possibly doubled their income.
”I was heartbroken when I saw that she was taken off the list.”
Similarly, Tonto Dikeh wrote,”Sad, was so happy) well, she is our Star and we love her regardless..it will happen, this just paved the way. I sense it.”
