Veteran Marvel Studios executive Victoria Alonso has been promoted to president of physical and post-production, visual effects and animation production.

The 15-year stalwart will oversee these departments across all Marvel film and series efforts. She was promoted from executive VP and continues to report to Marvel Studios co-president Louis D’Esposito.

“Victoria has been an incredible partner and part of our team since the very first Iron Man,” said Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige and D’Esposito in a statement. “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 joined Marvel Studios in 2006 as chief of visual effects and post-production, and served as co-producer on Iron Man (2008), the film that launched the MCU, which became the most successful film franchise in history. After serving in the same role for Iron Man 2 (2010), Thor (2011) and Captain America: The First Avenger (2011), Alonso was promoted to executive producer on Avengers (2012), the $1.5 billion hit that took Marvel Studios to new heights in terms of box office and global recognition. 

She has maintained that executive producer title on Marvel’s subsequent releases and will continue to do so on upcoming titles, which include Eternals, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Thor: Love and Thunder, as well as EP on Marvel Studios’ upcoming series for Disney+ including Hawkeye, Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk and Moon Knight.

“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!” Alonso said. “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!”

In 2017, she was the first woman to be honored with the Visionary Award at the 15th Annual VES Awards for her advancement of unforgettable storytelling through visual effects. In 2021, Alonso became an Emmy-nominated producer for her work on the MCU’s first series on Disney+, WandaVision.

During her tenure at the studio, Marvel films have collected over $23 billion in the global box office. Prior to Marvel, Alonso, a native of Buenos Aires, got her start at the VFX studio digital domain and served as a VFX producer for films like Ridley Scott’s Kingdom of Heaven, Tim Burton’s Big Fish and Andrew Adamson’s Shrek.
