Marvel and Disney have decided to part ways with actor Jonathan Majors in the wake of a guilty verdict on assault and harassment charges. The decision reflects the companies’ commitment to maintaining a safe and respectful environment within their projects.

Jonathan Majors, known for his roles in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe (MCU), faced legal repercussions, leading to a unanimous decision to terminate their professional association. Both Marvel and Disney emphasized the importance of upholding standards of conduct and ensuring the well-being of their teams.

Furthermore, his association with the Protagonist Pictures film, “The Man in My Basement,” has been severed. Major ad campaigns by the US Army and the Texas Rangers baseball team, featuring Majors, have also been withdrawn. Various projects, including Spike Lee’s “Da Understudy” for Amazon and the Dennis Rodman film “48 Hours in Vegas” for Lionsgate, are now in a state of uncertainty, awaiting decisions on their future involvement with Jonathan Majors.

Despite facing various professional consequences, Marvel’s choice to sever ties with Majors stands out as arguably the most significant. Majors initially introduced a multiverse-hopping version of the villain Kang in the 2021 Disney+ series Loki, laying the groundwork for the MCU’s future. 

Subsequently, he portrayed a variant of Kang named Victor Timely in Loki Season 2 on Disney+ Hotstar and reprised the character on the big screen in “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.”
