Marvel Studios part ways with Jonathan Majors following guilty verdict in harassment and assault cases

Marvel Studios has parted ways with actor Jonathan Majors following his conviction by a New York jury for assault and harassment of his ex-girlfriend during a domestic dispute, according to Variety. In the 2021 Disney+ series Loki’s season finale, Majors appeared as the villain Kang.

Majors and his ex-girlfriend Grace Jabbari got into a domestic fight in March, which is what led to the trial. Majors previously pleaded not guilty to misdemeanour charges of assault and aggravated harassment.

Majors’ talent manager, Entertainment 360, and his publicity firm, the Lede Company, have both dropped him following his arrest. He has no connection to the Protagonist Pictures film The Man in My Basement.’ The US Army also cancelled an ad campaign featuring the actor, as did the Texas Rangers baseball baseball team. Other projects including Majors that are still in the works include Spike Lee’s ‘Da Understudy’ for Amazon and Dennis Rodman’s ’48 Hours in Vegas’ for Lionsgate.

Majors was charged with four misdemeanours: misdemeanour assault, aggravated assault and harassment. According to The Guardian, he was eventually convicted of third-degree assault and second-degree harassment. However, the actor was found not guilty of a second assault allegation as well as one count of aggravated harassment. His sentencing date is set for February 6, 2024. The actor may spend up to a year in jail or on probation.
