Victoria Alonso’s Firing Might Benefit Kevin Feige’s MCU

Victoria Alonso was recently fired from Marvel Studios after the fourth phase was not up to the mark. Fans were disappointed with it, especially after the success of Infinity Saga. The exact reason for Alonso being fired is still unknown. However, it was said that the decision had been mutual on Disney and her end. Kevin Feige chose to stay out of the situation, neither wanting to go forward with the idea nor being completely against it. The final call had been of the Co-chairman of Disney Entertainment, Alan Bergman.

Alonso was in charge of all the post-filming work as well as the visual effects of Marvel Studios projects. These were the aspects that had been highly criticized by fans and critics alike recently. The news to increase Disney+’s range resulted in the downfall of quality and questionable visual effects. In order to get back on track, it was necessary to make changes. Not all of them have to be good decisions upfront. However, this could very easily benefit the franchise and help it regain its lost glory.

How Can Firing Victoria Alonso Change The Tides For Marvel?

While the MCU had a mixed response to most of its projects, some movies like Spider-Man: No Way Home and shows like Moon Knight became groundbreaking for the franchise. Unfortunately, most of its projects were far from what the audience had wanted. Although there is no surety about whether Victoria Alonso’s position would be left empty or replaced, steps have certainly been taken toward improving the franchise and bringing the fans back to it with top-quality content.
