Marvel Fans have plenty to be excited for, and as we enter into the new year here is everything new coming from Marvel Studios in 2022 and beyond! President of Physical, Post Production, VFX, and Animation at Marvel Studios Victoria Alonso recently shared with 221 Radio:
“We are currently working on 31 projects…It is a question about how are we handling multiple plates in the air at the same time, and the biggest thing is that sometimes the plates fall, and, you know, what are you going to do then? We want people to understand that the idea that we have, to tell these connected stories, it is important that the world knows that the characters we create, their stories have to do with how humans interact with each other.”“We are currently working on 31 projects…It is a question about how are we handling multiple plates in the air at the same time, and the biggest thing is that sometimes the plates fall, and, you know, what are you going to do then?
