The key to its success
This more than exceptional lady has a way of moving forward…she never looks back. What is behind stays behind: she always looks forward.
One thing is certain. At Marvel, nothing is left to chance! Everything is scrupulously analyzed and there is no room for improvisation. They study the version of the story down to the clothing details: Thor’s hammer will always remain Thor’s hammer, there are constants that must be religiously maintained.
At Marvel, the production schedule illustrates how a studio works. Everything is planned down to the last detail.
She likes to point out that Marvel always delivers a clear message of female empowerment and diversity. During the two hours they watch their film, people can forget about social and cultural barriers, related to social class, religion. It’s a privilege for any filmmaker if half of the audience can do that, and for Victoria it’s a great victory.
She is dedicated to an extremely important cause. It is essential for her that all little girls have a role model and think that everything is possible! Because in life nothing is won, but in order to move forward you must be able to dream and believe. To the infinite and the beyond!
