Marvel Studios has announced that Victoria Alonso, who has been with the studio since 2006, has been promoted to president of physical and post-production, visual effects, and animation production. In her new role, she will work across the studio’s film and series slate and report to Marvel Studios co-president Louis D’Esposito. Alonso previously held the title of executive vice president of production.
Following the news, D’Esposito and studio president Kevin Feige released a statement on her promotion.
“Victoria has been an incredible partner and part of our team since the very first Iron Man. 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.”
Alonso, who was born in Argentina, moved to the United States at age 19. She joined Marvel Studios in 2006 as chief of visual effects and post production. She would go on to serve as co-producer on Iron Man (2008), Iron Man 2 (2010), Thor (2011), and Captain America: The First Avenger (2011). Starting with The Avengers in 2012, her film credits were upped to executive producer.
Alonso also released a statement:
“When Louis first suggested I come to work with the team on Iron Man, I never could have imagined the adventure ahead, and as far as I’m concerned, it has only just begun!” said Alonso. “We have an absolutely incredible group of people who are bringing their many talents to the exciting slate of films and series we have on the horizon, and I’m especially thrilled about ramping up our studio’s animation efforts, which is a personal passion of mine. Look forward to more singing!”
Going forward, Alonso is expected to continue to serve as EP on upcoming films as well as Disney+ shows.
