The story behind Disney’s firing of Marvel Studios exec Victoria Alonso has finally been explained.
Given her 17-year tenure at the company and her position as president of physical and post-production, visual effects and animation, news of the longtime MCU producer’s departure left the industry shocked when it was released on Monday, March 20th.
Amid studio battles and delays since her departure, allegations have surfaced over Alonso’s role in “Marvel’s Toxic Work Environment” in terms of VFX in particular, have dominated the conversation.
But after news that Disney Entertainment co-chairman Alan Bergman made the call for Alonso to be removed, a new report has finally revealed the reason for the MCU’s recent shake-up.
The reason why Disney fired Victoria Alonso
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Victoria Alonso’s Oscar-nominated drama Argentina, 1985 is responsible for Disney’s firing of the MCU co-founder.
Since Amazon broke the international legal drama, sources have claimed Alonso broke her 2018 contract, saying employees would not work for competing studios.
In addition, Alsonso not only failed to ask permission to contribute Argentina, 1985, but after Disney found out about her injury, she continued to work on the film and contributed to its notoriety.
Sources claim that Alsonso has been reminded of her breach of contract multiple times but continues to promote the drama, including her appearance on the Oscars red carpet Argentina, 1985 Director, Santiago Mitre.
The fact that Alsono was involved in promoting the drama while Marvel Studios was producing a record number of visual effects-heavy projects has also reportedly upset Disney.
The problem reportedly peaked in the days after the Oscars, leading to Disney’s Alan Bergman, along with Disney’s legal and human resources departments, making the decision to fire her.
