Disney and IATSE reached an election agreement that will allow in-house vfx workers at the studio to vote on unionizing.
In a historic first for the industry, dozens of vfx workers at Marvel Studios are demanding union representation.
The decision, made in the middle of a writers’ strike focused largely on the use of AI, has artists speaking out.
In a 17-year career at Marvel Studios, Alonso was responsible for producing the animation and vfx for films that have grossed over $25 billion in global box office.

During its annual Annecy studio presentation, Disney announced three new series, several renewals, and expanded episode counts of upcoming series.
“I’m especially thrilled about ramping up our studio’s animation efforts, which is a personal passion of mine,” says Alonso.
The show premieres on Disney+ on Wednesday. Here’s what the critics are saying.
“We’re super excited about animation, which is my first love,” says Victoria Alonso, Marvel’s executive vp of film production.
