Jonathan Major’s arrest has put his future in Marvel in danger: what were his projects?
The actor behind the MCU’s Kang the Conqueror, Jonathan Majors, was arrested this weekend under charges of domestic abuse. Is his future as Kang compromised?
This past weekend Jonathan Majors was arrested in New York City for the alleged assault of a 30 years old woman, accusing the actor of domestic violence. The woman, who was taken to a hospital and is already stable, accuses the Marvel Studios actor of assault and head and neck injuries. For his part, a representative of the actor has already denied the accusations, assuring that he is innocent and that the evidence shows that he didn’t do anything wrong. However, until a verdict is pronounced, the actor's career could be in jeopardy. Faced with such accusations, his role as the villain Kang in the MCU could have issues.
Jonathan Majors' career in question
Majors, who has recently had prominent roles in large blockbusters such as Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and Creed 3, faces serious charges of assault, strangulation, and abuse. All this could cause a real earthquake in the actor's career since his future at Marvel Studios could be harmed as the great villain of Phase 5, Kang the Conqueror, of which we already had a first look both in the Loki Series, while in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania he acted as the main antagonist. But what other projects is Majors involved in as Kang or one of its variants?
For now, the next project in which we will see Jonathan Majors as part of the UCM will be in the second season of Loki, in which he will appear as a new variant of Kang. On the other hand, Jonathan Majors is expected to be the great antagonist of Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, the first of two upcoming crossover films scheduled for May 2025. And most likely, Kang could also appear in Avengers: Secret Wars, set to arrive in May 2026.
Could the arrest of Jonathan Majors hurt his career at Marvel Studios? If the accusations turn out to be true, it’s quite probable that Disney's pulse will not tremble when it comes to firing interpreters who have been involved in scandals, especially if they are as serious as the one at hand. If so, the solution would go through to recast the character, as has already happened in the past for different reasons.
