Following the removal of Funke Akindele's name from the cast of Hollywood movie Avengers, there has been media outrage with people expressing their disappointment in the filmmakers for their actions.
Earlier on, NAIJ.com reported the news of Nollywood actress Funke Akindele and how her name was included in the cast of the much anticipated Hollywood movie, The Avengers. Although everyone was elated and genuinely proud to have a fellow Nigerian and such a talented actress feature in the superhero movie much loved by fans all over the world, it wasn't meant to be.
The joy was short lived when yet another report showed that her name was removed from the cast. While many people were still going on about why she was removed and crying foul play, her name was replaced by fellow ace Nollywood star, Genevieve Nnaji.
Clearly hung up on the fact that one of the most loved Nollywood actress of all times was treated unjustly, many people including celebrities have come out to express their disappointment. Among which is Daddy Freeze who took to his Instagram page to write a message about it.
Posting a photo of her, he 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 heart broken when I saw that she was taken off the list......."

Fellow Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh commented in the post saying: "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.."
The talented actress who attained a new height of fame in the popular Yoruba movie Jenifa is still yet to come out and speak on the issue. It is believed that the role in the Avengers movie no matter how less important it was, would have shot her career into a new level gaining her international fame.
