Alonso’s impact on Marvel Studios dates back to 2008’s Iron Man, in which she was a co-producer.

She also still has credits on the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3, Ironheart and Secret Invasion.
In other words, if you’re a fan of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, you owe a debt of gratitude to Victoria Alonso and her superpowered contributions. To note, Alonso recently had a lot of success outside of Marvel, producing Argentina, 1985, which was up for the Best International Feature Prize at the Oscars this year. It actually won the Golden Globe for Best Non-English Motion Picture.
