"Deadline has confirmed that the esteemed Marvel executive and EP of several movies, Victoria Alonso, has exited Marvel Studios after a 17-year run. No reasons were given for her departure, which was effective Friday, and it’s not yet clear where she’s heading. Her exit is quite a shocker given her amiable demeanor and passion for all things Marvel."
She was apparently the chief wokester responsible for the ever weakening of what was once the world's biggest franchise.
The most recent flop of ANTMAN 3 was perhaps the final nail in the coffin, but it was a coffin that she's put a lot of nails into:
"Alonso has also served as an exec producer on Marvel movies and Disney+ series including most recently Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Thor: Love ad Thunder and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, in addition to series such as Loki, Ms. Marvel, and The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, to name a few."
All of those movies sucked, and all of them under-performed as a result. And why did they all suck? Well.....
"A consistently outspoken champion of diversity in entertainment, Alonso said during a 2021 Women In Animation panel at the Annecy Animation Film Festival that inclusion, diversity and gender parity “all go hand-in-hand with showing the world as it is.
Alonso added then that members of the LGBTQ+ community “deserve the right to live, love, and have. More importantly, we deserve an origin story…As long as I am at Marvel Studios I will fight for representation for all of us.”
Beyond this genius business plan - because guys running around in skin-tight body suits apparently not gay enough - she also claimed that women made up "51%" of all comic book readers. She should have been fired for that totally divorced from reality statement alone.
She also apparently was hated by the SFX houses, which is a real bad look when your product is essentially digital animation.
Disney - which is prepping to lay off thousands more people as they bled money - has perhaps had enough of the woke/broke trap they had painted themselves into, at least until they start making money again. But somehow a doubt that a franchise which has kicked out 30 + movies in such a compressed time is going to get better anytime soon.
