Marvel Drops Major Actor Following Conviction

Marvel Drops Major Actor Following Conviction

( – Jonathan Majors was one of Hollywood’s biggest rising stars. He starred in roles on HBO’s “Lovecraft Country,” Marvel’s “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” and others. Then, he got into trouble for a violent act. Now, Marvel has decided to drop the actor.

On December 18, a six-person jury in Manhattan found Majors guilty of misdemeanor harassment in the second degree and assault in the third degree. The jury found him not guilty of aggravated harassment in the second degree and intentional assault in the third degree. The charges stemmed from a domestic violence incident with his ex-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari.

The fight between Jabbari and Majors took place on March 25. Jabbari reportedly saw a text on Majors’ phone that he received from some other woman. She grabbed his phone, and he pulled her finger, twisted her arm behind her back, and then hit her in the head. He then picked her up and pushed her back into the car when she tried to follow him out.

After the fight, Majors went to a hotel, and Jabbari went to a nightclub. He returned home later that evening and found her unconscious. He thought she tried to kill herself and called 911. When first responders arrived, officers with the New York Police Department arrested the actor. Jabbari had a broken finger and bruises.

During the trial, text messages revealed the incident wasn’t the first time Majors got violent with Jabbari. He’d allegedly hurt her head in the past and sent her a message that read, “I’m a monster. A horrible man. Not capable of love.”

After the guilty verdict was handed down, Marvel Studios and Disney fired Majors. According to The New York Times, Marvel was going to build several films around a character he played in “Quantumania,” and he was supposed to lead “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty,” but the studio is allowing the latter to go forward without him and a new script is being written.

Majors will be back in court on February 6 for his sentencing hearing.
