A Rising MCU Career Ends
Victoria Alonso’s career was ascending by actively participating in the development of MCU films. Be it the two Thor sequels, Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America and other Marvel Universe productions. This high performance and activism led her to the Special Effects and Post Production presidency.
Victoria Alonso also participated in other productions outside Marvel Studios, such as Argentina 1985. She was also in a project called “Don’t Say Gay”. This brought certain discussions with Disney in Florida, especially for the fight for sexual diversity.
This battle may be one of the reasons for his departure, and another the results obtained in the film Ant-Man and the Wasp Quantummania. The film not only received great reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, with one of the lowest scores of the entire MCU. Also its box office left a lot to be desired at this point.
This may be other reasons, whether because of the struggle of sexual diversity or wanting to pass the baton to another generation because of the result obtained in the last Ant-Man 3. What is certain is that Marvel Studios will not count on Victoria Alonso. The executive left a significant legacy, with great successes that will be remembered for generations.
Victoria Alonso may soon declare the reasons for her departure from Marvel Studios, whether for personal, business or even professional reasons. Marvel, for the moment also does not speak about this event, the reasons presented by this executive and how it may affect the productions that are in progress.
What is certain is that Marvel will have to make adjustments since the beginning of Phase V could have been better. Ant-Man 3 was a box office flop despite introducing the saga’s new villain, Kang the Conqueror. We’ll see if Marvel Studios can get back on track with Victoria Alonso is out of the office.
