Following the news that Jonathan Majors has been dropped by his talent manager and PR firm, a report from Deadline notes that Marvel Studios is not considering recasting his role as Kang the Conqueror at this time.
The report mentions that Majors’ previous talent manager — Entertainment 360 — severed ties with the actor due to what the outlet’s sources claim were issues surrounding Majors’ “personal behavior.” The Lede Company, a PR firm working with Majors, initiated a break with the actor during the last month as well, as did fashion house Valentino, who announced that they and Majors had mutually agreed to not have Majors attend the upcoming Met Gala as one of its guests.
According to Deadline, however, Majors has already filmed the upcoming second season of the Disney+ series Lokiand despite Avengers: The Kang Dynasty not filming for some time, the report mentions there have been “zero conversations” about dropping Majors from his MCU role.
Earlier this year, Majors was charged with three counts of third-degree assault. This is in addition to second-degree aggravated harassment, three counts of third-degree attempted assault, and second-degree harassment.
Jonathan Majors’ criminal defense lawyer stated that Majors is “provably innocent” and expects charges to be dropped “imminently” due to multiple witnesses and written retractions from the victim. However, nothing has been released as of yet.
