Disney Settles With Former Marvel Exec Victoria Alonso Over Sudden Firing

Deadline Reports Disney has settled with former Marvel Studios VFX chief Victoria Alonso after pink-slipping her last month. While details between Alonso and Disney are confidential, there was a multimillion-dollar financial compensation. The deal between the parties was reached in the past few days. Alonso was represented by Glaser Weil Fink Howard Avchen & Shapiro LLP in the dispute, which went public on March 24.

She had a history at the studio for being a consistent outspoken champion of diversity in entertainment.

Alonso joined Marvel in 2006 as chief of visual effects and post-production and was involved in the launch of 2008’s Iron Man as a co-producer, counting additional co-producer credits on Iron Man 2 (2010), Thor (2011) and Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) before being elevated to EP on on Avengers (2012). Alonso served as an EP on movies and Disney+ series including most recently Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Thor: Love and Thunder and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, in addition to such TV fare as Loki, Ms. Marvel and The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special.
