Victoria Alonso’s Lawyer Strikes Back, Claims She Was “Silenced” by Disney

The story surrounding Victoria Alonso‘s departure from Marvel Studios is starting to take on quite a messy direction. At first, there were claims that she was a kingmaker that wrecked the studio’s relationship with various VFX agencies. Then, a report arrived that she was fired due to her involvement with Argentina, 1985 after being repeatedly told that it is in breach of her contract with Disney.

Now, the story is getting her lawyer involved, who has openly struck back at the statements and even put up some rather scathing statements in regard to her sudden cancelation. Patty Glaser claims that Alonso has been “silenced” by Disney but only hints that a revelation to this claim will follow in some form or another.

The idea that Victoria was fired over a handful of press interviews relating to a personal passion project about human rights and democracy that was nominated for an Oscar and which she got Disney’s blessing to work on is absolutely ridiculous. Victoria, a gay Latina who had the courage to criticize Disney, was silenced. Then she was terminated when she refused to do something she believed was reprehensible. Disney and Marvel made a really poor decision that will have serious consequences. There is a lot more to this story and Victoria will be telling it shortly—in one forum or another.

The claim may be in reference to a statement she made towards Bob Chapek during 2022 GLAAD awards after the Florida “Don’t Say Gay” bill incident. Though that wouldn’t make sense given that she was fired under Bob Iger‘s leadership rather than that of Chapek, who even Disney ousted due to the way things have been going as of late. Supposedly, she was no longer allowed to do press for any Marvel projects.

At this point, stories aren’t quite adding up and it’s becoming a “he said, she said” storyline. The report surrounding Argentina, 1985 wasn’t an official statement but a report from Hollywood Reporter. So, the lawyer antagonizing Disney in reaction to that story is certainly a curious reaction. Whatever these consequences may be, we’ll have to see what exactly it might mean for everyone involved.
