WEEKLY MARVEL STUDIO NEWS [29:32]
MCU – MARVEL STUDIOS
Inside the Firing of Victoria Alonso: Her Oscar-Nominated Movie ‘Argentina, 1985’ at Center of Exit (Exclusive)
The Oscar-nominated film Argentina, 1985 was at the center of last week’s sudden firing of longtime Marvel Studios executive Victoria Alonso, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Alonso was one of eight producers on the Argentine historical drama, which was distributed by Amazon and competed for the best international feature Oscar. However, by assuming that role, she breached her contract — several times — according to sources. After repeated warnings, the situation came to a head the week after the Academy Awards and ultimately led to her termination. It was a seismic shake-up at Marvel, where for years Alonso was part of the holy trinity — along with Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige and co-president Louis D’Esposito — who led the Marvel Cinematic Universe to ever-greater heights.
Victoria Alonso’s Attorney Issues Statement on Controversial Firing
A statement from the attorney of Victoria Alonso adds a new layer to her recent firing from Marvel Studios. The statement, which was released on Friday night (via Variety), refutes claims that Alonso was fired by Disney due to her work as a producer on Amazon’s Oscar-nominated film Argentina, 1985, which they claim violated the specifics of her Marvel Studios contract. Attorney Patty Glaser, who is representing Alonso, calls those reports “absolutely ridiculous” and hints that Alonso had the blessing of Disney to work on Argentina, 1985, even though it was being made by another studio.
“The idea that Victoria was fired over a handful of press interviews relating to a personal passion project about human rights and democracy that was nominated for an Oscar and which she got Disney’s blessing to work on is absolutely ridiculous,” Glaser’s statement reads. “Victoria, a gay Latina who had the courage to criticize Disney, was silenced. Then she was terminated when she refused to do something she believed was reprehensible. Disney and Marvel made a really poor decision that will have serious consequences. There is a lot more to this story and Victoria will be telling it shortly—in one forum or another.”
Victoria Alonso Attorney Blasts ‘Ridiculous’ Claim She Was Fired Over ‘Argentina, 1985,’ Says Executive Was ‘Silenced’ by Disney (EXCLUSIVE)
Victoria Alonso’s work as a producer of the Oscar-nominated feature film “Argentina, 1985” is being cited as the reason to fire the longtime Marvel Studios executive, according to three sources with knowledge of Alonso’s exit. Alonso’s attorney, however, pushed back on that justification — calling it “absolutely ridiculous.”
In a statement to Variety, attorney Patty Glaser, who is representing Alonso in her departure from Disney, instead claims that the executive was “silenced” by Disney, and that she had the studio’s “blessing” to work on “Argentina, 1985.”
At issue, according to the sources, was Alonso’s 2018 employment contract with Disney that prohibited her from working on projects for any rival studios. “Argentina, 1985” — which tracks the real-life trials of the country’s final dictatorship — was produced in part by Amazon Studios, which released the film on Prime Video in October.
