Victoria Alonso – “If it were up to me, it would be today”

Victoria Alonso  – Marvel Studios Executive Producer and Executive VP of Visual Effects  was asked by Variety about Marvel’s reaction to DC’s Wonder Woman movie (staring Gal Gadot) in 2017. Previous criticism has been thrown at Marvel for being sexist, especially with the lack of female based merchandise from their movies and the question remains as to when they will release a female based superhero movie.

Alonso responded “If it were up to me, it would be today;” Variety notes that Alonso then took a long pause to consider what to say next, finally smiling and declining to say more:

“You’ve got to get the girls in here, boys. It’s better when it’s 50-50,” she continued. “I have been with you beautiful, handsome, talented, creative men in dark rooms for two decades and I can tell you those rooms are better when there are a few of us in them. So as you take this with you, please remember that it’s OK to allow the ladies in. They’re smart, they’re talented. They bring a balance that you need.”

Alonso also appeared on the “Women of Marvel” panel at this past summer’s Comic-Con in San Diego and was reluctant to admit a Black Widow film would happen: “Scarlett Johansson is a little busy having a baby at the moment,” said Alonso. She did though, call on the panel and panellists to get involved to see more prominent female characters in comics, television and movies. “I am ready. I need your help. Write!”
