Marvel’s Victoria Alonso Upped To President Role
Two months after she teased a new Marvel animation studio, Victoria Alonso has been promoted. She has been promoted to president of physical and post production, visual effects, and animation production. Alonso will oversee those departments across all Marvel films and series，including “Eternals,” “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” and “Thor: Love and Thunder.” She serves the same role on Disney Plus originals including “Hawkeye,” “Ms. Marvel,” “She-Hulk” and “Moon Knight.”
A 15-year veteran of Marvel, she was previously an executive vp at the Disney-owned studio. She will continue to report to its co-president Louis D’Esposito.
“Victoria has been an incredible partner and part of our team since the very first ‘Iron Man,’” said Marvel Studios president and chief creative officer Kevin Feige and D’Esposito in a joint statement “She is one of the most dynamic, candid and accessible executives in the industry and we’re thrilled that she’ll continue to be by our side in this elevated role as we lead Marvel Studios into the future.”
After a stint at vfx studio Digital Domain, Alonso joined Marvel Studios in 2006 as executive vp of visual effects and post-production. She co-produced the early films in the MCU, starting with 2008’s Iron Man, before being bumped up to executive producer on 2012’s The Avengers. She has retained that title on all subsequent MCU releases.
During her tenure at the studio, Marvel films have earned over $23 billion at the global box office. This year, she became an Emmy-nominated producer for her work on the MCU’s first series on Disney Plus, “WandaVision.” Marvel Studios has released three subsequent series: “The Falcon and The Winter Soldier,” “Loki” and “What If…?.”
Her impact is far-reaching as a woman of color in a senior executive role. She was named one of People en Español Magazine’s top “Poderosa” Most Influential Hispanic Women in 2019 and 2020. On multiple occasions, she has been named to Variety‘s Power of Women L.A. Impact Report. Alonso was honored in 2015 with the Muse Award for Outstanding Vision and Achievement from the New York Women in Film & Television.
She was the first woman to be presented with the Harold Lloyd Award from the Advanced Imaging Society, which is given to a filmmaker who has created a body of work and specific achievements in 3-D that advanced the motion picture art form. In 2017, she was the first woman to be honored with the Visionary Award at the 15th Annual VES Awards for storytelling through visual effects.
