In a surprising career setback, Marvel Studios has severed ties with Jonathan Majors, marking a significant turn of events for the actor once poised for greatness.

On December 18, a Manhattan jury delivered a blow to Majors’ career by convicting him of reckless assault in the third degree and harassment after a two-week trial.

The legal turmoil traces back to March when Majors was arrested in New York City for allegedly assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari, in the backseat of a private vehicle.

Jabbari testified that the altercation ensued when she grabbed Majors’ phone upon discovering a text message from another woman expressing romantic sentiments.

Before the March incident, Majors had taken a prominent role as the time-traveling villain Kang the Conqueror in “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” positioning him as a central figure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Marvel Studios had built its current story arc around Kang, with Majors slated to lead in “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty,” scheduled for release on May 1, 2026.

Despite the setback with Majors, Marvel Studios is determined to proceed with “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.”

In November, they enlisted “Loki” creator Michael Waldron to craft a new draft for the film.

Jonathan Majors’ sentencing is set for February 6, 2024, with the actor potentially facing up to a year in jail.

The repercussions of his legal troubles extend beyond the courtroom, significantly altering the trajectory of his once-promising career in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
