Jonathan Majors, who notably portrayed Kang the Conqueror in the 2021 Loki series, warned about the imminent menace of his character’s different incarnations, which foreshadowed the threat he poses to the Marvel Universe. However, fans only fully grasped Kang’s menace after the release of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
While Majors’ career was on the rise, an assault charge has cast a shadow over his future. In March 2023, Majors was arrested for assault, harassment, and strangulation involving a lady.
Initially, lawyers believed Majors was not at fault, but additional abuse victims came forward later, leading to several charges of severe harassment and assault.
The incident occurred after a heated argument between Majors and a lady he had been dating, which resulted in the lady alleging physical abuse and strangulation. She contacted the police after they had been apart for some time.
In April, the lady obtained a restraining order against Majors, banning direct or third-party contact.
Jonathan Majors appeared in court for the first time in person, with a trial date set for August 3. His legal team presented evidence suggesting the accuser struck Majors rather than the other way around, and they called for charges against Majors to be dismissed.
Despite the ongoing legal proceedings, Majors’ career has been significantly affected. His publicist, management, and several projects have distanced themselves from him, which could have a lasting impact on his career regardless of the trial’s outcome.
