It no longer news that Funke Akindele Bello has been announced as a member of the cast for The Avengers:Infinity War. Funke Akindele is expected to play the role of the Black Panther’s guards, the Dora Milaje.
According to IMDB, ‘Avengers:Infinity War’ is the most anticipated movie of 2018 and features Funke alongside Marvel characters such as Black Panther, Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow and others.
Here are reasons why this movie is a big deal
The Dora Milaje pronounced as dora-meh-LAH-shay is translated in English as ‘Adored Ones’
The Dora Milaje are the superior women recruited from every tribe of the Wakanda. They serve as the personal bodyguards of the black Panther.
The Dora Milaje are seen as potential queens for their unmarried king. This is to maintain unity in the clan by ensuring the possibility of the king picking a queen from any of the 18 tribes in the kingdom.
It is customary for the Dora Milaje to shave their heads and have a tribal markings. If you recall, Funke shaved her hair in 2017 and it could be for this role or not.
The Dora Milaje are the best trained fighters in the Marvel Universe as they fought the master Russian assassin Black Widow and almost defeated Storm. They are trained to kill but Black Panther’s orders only limit them to injure their enemies.
