Victoria Alonso, from Marvel Studios, also chooses her favorite scene from Carol Danvers' solo movie.

Captain Marvel's film debut – on DVD and Blu-Ray this week – is a remote 90s origin with star Brie Larson as Carol Danvers before she comes to help save the day in Avengers: End of the game.
IGN recently sat down to chat with EVP from Marvel Studios production Victoria Alonso about the film, her journey in the studio, her favorite visual sequence on Captain Marvel, and how Carol's appearance hardly changed dramatically in Avengers: Endgame.
Making Marvel Movies
Alonso has been part of Kevin Feige's main team since 2005, alongside Louis D & # 39; Esposito, the trio has been the core of Marvel Studios and when asked about what has changed since working on Iron Man in 2005 to the climax of the story in Endgame, Alonso shared, "The difference is that the movies seem a little bigger. I do not know what they are. We are the same people, so the same creative team, which is good to have, you know, we've been together for almost 14 years. 13 and a half. And it's really cool to have, you know, Lou, Kevin and I together, all those years, "she said.
"But it's really just a battle against time. From the beginning to the present, the only person with whom we fight, and we give her a persona, is time, is our four-letter word that we carry with us. Time is the enemy. We have no enemies beyond time. And Thanos – but we got rid of it.
The visuals of Captain Marvel
Starting as co-producer and producer of visual effects, Alonso still works closely with the teams that come together to bring us the stunning visual effects of the film. In Captain Marvel, there are many outstanding sequences that utilize various aspects of the art form. At home, there are reports of how the Skrulls were designed and the visual journey of creating the Mind-Frack memory scene from the opening of the film. For Alonso, the visual sequence she is most proud of is rooted in Captain Marvel's past: "The only sequence that resonates with me is all the girls getting up."
Alonso stated that she was referring to seeing Carol at different ages fail and get back up, "And I heard this from men and women, how important that moment was. Because, although we made it clear, of course, to see Captain Marvel stand up and fight the fight. I think humans, regardless of their gender or how you identify, is really about getting up. And every time you fall, you have another chance. And you just get up and get up. And over the years, you get up and get up, and you get up and eventually the conquest. Whatever."
Evolution of Carol Danvers
Included in the behind-the-scenes of Blu-Ray are the conceptual art concepts of visual development director Andy Park, which is part of the internal artists who work on character design, keyboards and key moments in the story. His designs for Captain Marvel give glimpses into all aspects considered before joining the Avengers in Endgame, with some of the looks being included in the various Carols we saw in the time jumps.
Seeing his evolution on the screen in various periods of time and it seems that his shorter hair in the second act of Endgame was something that gave Alonso a bit of trepidation, "This haircut was a conversation." Alonso said, "And I was against it for a while because I was afraid that people would have just met her and just realized who she was and then we were changing her hair." And I thought, it's too soon. But clearly, it was not.
With many excited to see more Captain Marvel and curious to know where in time we go with her next, Alonso remained enigmatic. "I think we'll take it one step at a time. What next? And what we do with her, "Alonso replied with a laugh." And her hair.
Captain Marvel is now available in HD Digital and 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD.
