Akindele certainly knows something about being part of a popular and successful franchise. In 2008, she starred in Jenifa, a comedy about a young uneducated lady living in Lagos, Nigeria’s largest city. It turned out to be a massive hit and she snagged the Africa Movie Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role for her performance. A sequel followed in 2012 and, in 2014, Jenifa’s Diary, a spin-off TV series debuted as well.

Last year, Marvel’s three movies—Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Raganarok and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2—jointly earned more than $2 billion with each movie notching $100 million openings—a record for the most $100 million openings in a single year for US production houses. Avengers: Infinity War is likely to continue that strong box office run. The trailer has already racked up over 113 million views since it was released at the end of November.
