Here’s why Marvel Studios has fired Jonathan Majors

Following a legal battle stemming from an alleged incident in March, Jonathan Majors, recognized for his roles in “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” and “Loki,” confronted trial over domestic violence accusations. The verdict, delivered on Monday, saw Majors convicted on charges of assault and harassment, prompting Marvel Studios to confirm his exclusion from future MCU projects, according to Deadline reports.

Majors, known for his portrayal of Kang, will not reprise his role in the MCU, a decision meted out post-verdict. Despite being found not guilty on additional charges of intentional assault and aggravated harassment, Majors faces potential time behind bars. His legal team, led by attorney Priya Chaudhry, hinted at an appeal, expressing Majors’ determination to clear his name while acknowledging the unwavering support from family, friends, and fans.

Amidst the legal upheaval, various reports suggested Marvel’s contemplation of proceeding without Majors due to the ongoing legal entanglement. Swift reactions from other corporations followed suit, with Majors dropped from imminent projects. The U.S. Army severed ties with him, and Disney pulled his anticipated film, “Magazine Dreams,” from its scheduled December release.

This tumultuous phase has dramatically impacted Majors’ burgeoning career. His significant roles in “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” and “Creed III” propelled his career trajectory, earmarking pivotal antagonistic roles in the upcoming Avengers films. His film “Magazine Dreams” had garnered positive early reviews. Prior to this legal turmoil, Majors received acclaim for his work in HBO’s “Lovecraft Country” and notable movies such as “The Last Black Man in San Francisco,” “Da 5 Bloods,” and “Devotion.”

As the legal saga unfolds, uncertainty clouds Majors’ future in the entertainment industry, leaving behind a promising career overshadowed by legal ramifications.
