Marvel Studios, Victoria Alonso, exit

Victoria Alonso, the invaluable Marvel executive and EP of several films and television series that helped put the studio on the map, exited the company after 17 successful years. Alonso left the company on Friday, with her most recent title being the Marvel Studios President of Physical and Postproduction, VFX, and Animation Production.

Alonso’s impact on Marvel Studios dates back to 2008’s Iron Man, in which she was a co-producer. Alonso co-produced Iron Man 2Thor, and Captain American: The First Avenger before ranking up to an executive producer on The Avengers. She continued executive producing Marvel tentpoles like a boss, including Iron Man 3Thor: The Dark WorldCaptain America: The Winter SoldierGuardians of the GalaxyAvengers: Age of UltronAnt-ManCaptain America: Civil WarDoctor StrangeGuardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2Spider-Man: HomecomingThor: RagnarokBlack PantherAvengers: Infinity WarAnt-Man and the WaspCaptain MarvelAvengers: EndgameSpider-Man: Far From HomeBlack Widow Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten RingsEternalsSpider-Man: No Way HomeDoctor Strange in the Mouth of MadnessThor: Love and ThunderBlack Panther: Wakanda Forever, and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

Alonso executive produced tons of Marvel’s television content as well, including WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter SoldierWhat If…?, HawkeyeMoon KnightI Am GrootWerewolf by NightShe-Hulk: Attorney at LawThe Guardians of the Galaxy: Holiday SpecialLoki, and more.

In other words, if you’re a fan of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, you owe a debt of gratitude to Victoria Alonso and her superpowered contributions. She was a diversity champion at the studio, saying diversity and gender “all go hand-in-hand with showing the World as it is.”

Alonso was fearless in saying what a lot of people were thinking. At a 2021 Women in Animation panel at the Annecy Animation Film Festival, she went to bat for underrepresented parties in the entertainment industry by saying that diversity can be viewed “from the social point of view, the cultural point of view. But truthfully, this is a business. From a fiscal point of view, you are leaving money on the table by not representing. I think 51% of our audience is female, and 28% of our audience is Hispanic. If we don’t represent the people that watch what we make, eventually they’ll go elsewhere because somebody else will figure it out.”

Alonso’s departure from the studio is troubling, knowing she was unafraid to vocalize her discontent with management. We need people who stir the pot in positions of power to act as a counterbalance. Marvel will continue forward, which is a no-brainer, but without Alonso, there’s no telling if specific projects will represent the way they have in the past.

We wish Ms. Alonso the best in her next position. Thank you for making a difference and entertaining us for so many years!
