Jonathan Majors Found Guilty of Assault: Marvel Drops Actor from Prime Role
In a recent development actor Jonathan Majors recognized for his role as Kang in Marvel films, has been convicted of assaulting his ex-girlfriend, British choreographer Grace Jabbari. The jury delivered the verdict after a three-day deliberation revealing that Majors left Jabbari with injuries including a fractured finger, bruising and a cut behind her ear during a March altercation.
The 34-year-old actor could face up to a year in jail, leading Marvel to sever ties with him, removing him from a significant role in upcoming superhero blockbusters. The verdict was met with a stoic reaction from Majors, who was set to play Kang the Conqueror in Marvel’s “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” and subsequent Avengers films.

Scheduled for sentencing on February 6, Majors faces charges of assault in the third degree and harassment in the second degree. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg highlighted the evidence presented during the trial, depicting a cycle of psychological and emotional abuse leading to the assault.
Despite his promising career with roles in “Creed III,” “Lovecraft Country” and Sundance Film Festival entry “Magazine Dreams” Majors’ legal troubles have cast a shadow over his future in the entertainment industry.
