Victoria Alonso on superheroes, multiverses and movies
NEW YORK (AP) — For more than 20 years, acclaimed Argentine filmmaker Victoria Alonso has helped steer Marvel’s cinematic juggernaut to ever-increasing heights of success. With the sequel to ‘Doctor Strange’ releasing this week, she’s set for another hit and will realize her dream of debuting a superhero she’s wanted to see on screen ever since she started Marvel Studios.
Alonso got his start at Marvel in 2006 co-producing “Iron Man,” the studio’s first film, which was released two years later. Since then, she’s become one of Hollywood’s most powerful executives, and her 25 Marvel Cinematic Universe films, including the recent blockbuster “Spider-Man,” have grossed $23 billion at the global box office.
