On Saturday, reports surfaced that Jonathan Majors, a rising star in Hollywood, had been arrested in New York City following a fight with his fiancée.
Minor injuries to the woman were reported, and Majors was arrested on charges of assault, harassment, and strangulation.
Majors’ legal team wasted no time issuing a statement refuting the charges and declaring their eagerness to vindicate his client’s name.
Given Majors’ meteoric ascent to fame thanks to performances in films like “Da 5 Bloods,” “The Harder They Fall,” and the forthcoming blockbuster “Creed III,” this news comes as a particularly rude shock.
His portrayal of Kang the Conqueror, the new primary enemy of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is arguably his most significant role to date.
This unexpected turn of events may throw a wrench into the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s plans, as Kang was supposed to play a major role in Phases 5 and 6 of the franchise.
The mid-credit scene in “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” stated that Majors Kang, who was introduced in the “Loki” series on Disney+, was intended to bring a new level of dread to the franchise.
This tragedy has the potential to derail Marvel’s plans for the future of the MCU franchise, whose future influence from Kang was already highly anticipated.
Although while the charges against Majors are still being looked into, his supporters are certain that this won’t have a major influence on his career or the future of the MCU.
