Kang actor Jonathan Majors fired by Marvel after ‘guilty’ verdict

  • December 19, 2023

Jonathan Majors is out of Marvel Studios in a big career crisis for the on-the-rise actor. On December 18, a jury in Manhattan found Majors guilty of reckless assault in the third degree and guilty of harassment following a 2 week trial that stemmed from a March incident between the actor and his ex-partner, Grace Jabbari.

Before his arrest in March 2023, Majors was set to be the key figure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with the Disney-owned studio building its whole current story arc around Majors’ Kang the Conqueror. The time-traveling villain is a part of this year’s ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ as well as both seasons of Loki, and lead ‘Avengers: The Kang Dynasty’, planned for May 1, 2026. The film is still in the script phase and yet to begin filming. No director is currently affiliated.
