Jonathan Majors: The future of Jonathan Majors in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is uncertain following his arrest on charges of domestic violence. Majors, who made his MCU debut as Kang the Conqueror in the Disney+ series Loki, was arrested on March 25, 2023, and charged with assault and aggravated harassment. He has since been released on bail.
Marvel Studios has not yet made a decision on whether or not to keep Majors in the MCU. The studio has said that it is “still evaluating the situation” and that it will “make a decision in due course.”
Majors’ arrest has cast a shadow over the MCU’s Phase 6 plans. Kang was set to be a major villain in Phase 6, appearing in several films, including Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. However, it is now unclear if Majors will be able to reprise his role.
If Marvel Studios does decide to recast Kang, it will be a major challenge. Majors was widely praised for his performance as Kang in Loki, and he had already become a fan favorite. Finding an actor who can live up to Majors’ performance will be a tall order.
The decision of whether or not to keep Majors in the MCU is a difficult one for Marvel Studios. On the one hand, Majors is a talented actor who has already made a significant impact on the MCU. On the other hand, the allegations against him are serious, and Marvel Studios has a responsibility to its fans to ensure that it is not condoning violence.
Ultimately, the decision of whether or not to keep Majors in the MCU is up to Marvel Studios. The studio will have to weigh the pros and cons of each option and make a decision that it believes is in the best interests of the MCU.
