Dramatic Turn for Hollywood Star

Following a New York jury’s decision finding actor Majors guilty of attacking choreographer Grace Jabbari in March, Marvel Studios announced their discontinuation of collaboration with the actor. 

This development comes as Majors faces potential imprisonment for up to a year, with sentencing scheduled for February.

Career Impact and Film Revisions

The verdict marks a sharp fall from grace for the actor, known for his role as Kang the Conqueror in Marvel films, including appearances in “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” and the Disney+ series “Loki.” 

Marvel Studios had restructured film releases, postponing “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty,” where Majors held the lead role, while considering adjustments for the subsequent film, “Avengers: Secret Wars.”

Uncertainty Surrounding Future Projects
