Marvel Studios long-time executive, Victoria Alonso, was let go after violating her contract by producing an Oscar-nominated film, Argentina, 1985, in which she breached her 2018 agreement with the company standards of business conduct, which prohibits employees from working for competing studios. Alonso was against the conditions to not work on the movie further or publicize it; this was considered a breach of her contract’s rules. Marvel’s decision to terminate Alonso caused surprises and fears in the VFX industry, as she played a role as a key figure in producing Marvel’s visual effects. Despite mixed opinions from anonymous sources, one thing is clear: Alonso’s firing will significantly affect Marvel and VFX’s future projects. It’s unknown who will take over as Alonso’s successor, which means whoever assumes her duties will face new challenges in coping with Marvel’s aggressive release schedules.
