As a result of the accusations, the agency that had previously represented him ended cooperation with Jonathan Majors. Majors also lost his role in several projects. Now Marvel is ending its work with Majors with immediate effect.
Majors was arrested in March on suspicion of assaulting his partner during an argument. Majors’ case went to court. Majors faces up to a year in prison, although he may also receive a suspended sentence. The actor pleaded not guilty.
Majors’ trial ended on Friday, and now the jury has handed down its decision. Majors was found guilty of two counts of harassment and reckless assault. He was acquitted of third-degree intentional assault and abusing his ex-girlfriend Grace Jabbari. The final judgment will be issued on February 6, 2024. In her closing argument, Majors’ lawyer called Jabbari a liar and claimed that it was the woman who attacked Majors, and not the other way around. Jabbari suffered bruises, a cut behind her ear and a broken finger after the incident in March. According to her testimony, she was injured earlier when she tried to take Majors’ phone in the car (where she saw the message “I dream of kissing you”), and he exploded and started pulling her and twisting her arm.
Variety reported that Marvel has ended cooperation with Majors, who previously played the main villain of the current MCU saga, Kang. At the moment, it is unknown whether the studio will choose a different villain or cast a new actor as Kang. Considering that this character can have different variants, a possible recast could be justified in terms of the plot.
