Jonathan Majors Officially Fired by Marvel Studios

 Jonathan Majors is officially out at Marvel Studios.

Due to an alleged incident that happened in March, Majors was recently brought to trial following allegations of domestic violence. On Monday, he was found guilty on charges of assault and harassment. After the verdict was announced, it was confirmed by a Marvel Studios representative that Majors will not return for any future MCU projects, per Deadline. Majors had recently appeared in the second season of Loki after debuting as Kang in the film Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

While this isn’t a great time for Majors, with the actor also potentially facing one year behind bars, he did get some good news in that he was found not guilty on additional charges of intentional assault and aggravated harassment in the second degree. His attorney, Priya Chaudhry, has also suggested that the legal battle isn’t over just yet. Suggesting that there would be an appeal, she said in a statement after the verdict was announced that Majors “looks forward to fully clearing his name.” She added, “Mr. Majors is grateful to God, his family, his friends, and his fans for their love and support during these harrowing eight months.”

Getting fired by Marvel Studios comes after there had been reports that the company was already considering moving forward without Majors in light of his legal troubles. Other companies were also quicker to cut ties with Majors when the allegations were first made public. That included getting immediately dropped from an ad campaign for the U.S. Army that was imminently set to start airing. He was also dropped from multiple movies he had been attached to, and Disney recently pulled his upcoming film, Magazine Dreams, from its planned theatrical release in December.

Majors was on the rise in Hollywood when his legal troubles began. He had just appeared in two major motion pictures with key roles in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and Creed III, and there were very big plans for him in the MCU, as he would’ve been the major antagonist in at least one of the upcoming Avengers films. Majors had also garnered acclaim with his upcoming film Magazine Dreams in its early reviews ahead of its release. The actor previously found praise with his role in HBO’s Lovecraft Country and appeared in films like The Last Black Man in San Francisco, Da 5 Bloods, and Devotion.
