Longtime MCU Producer Exits Marvel Studios - Report

No reason has been given for her departure.


Marvel Studios executive Victoria Alonso has reportedly exited the company as of March 17, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The publication cited multiple unnamed sources, with reasons for the exit still "unclear."

Alonso has been with the MCU since its earliest days nearly two full decades ago. The executive joined Marvel in 2006 as chief of visual effects and post production, climbing from co-producer on 2008's Iron Man to become president in 2021 of physical and post-production, visual effects, and animation production.

As The Hollywood Reporter indicates--which may be anecdotal and unrelated--Alonso's departure comes on the heels of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania's underwhelming performance at the box office and among critics and fans. Rotten Tomatoes reported an approval rating of 47% with an average rating of 5.6/10, based on 379 reviews. The site's critics consensus reads: "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania mostly lacks the spark of fun that elevated earlier adventures, but Jonathan Majors' Kang is a thrilling villain poised to alter the course of the MCU."

It also comes at another pivotal moment for the company, as Alonso played a major role in advocating for Marvel's stance as a brand ambassador on representation. "As long as I am at Marvel Studios, I will fight for representation," Alonso, who is gay, told The Hollywood Reporter during the company's 2022 in response to the "Don't Say Gay" to push Disney to also take a stand.
