Marvel Studios, owned by Disney, has had a string of failures over the past few years. This has left the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in doubt. Now it appears that the entire creative path of the collective story has been destroyed, thanks to actor Jonathan Majors. Majors is Kang the Conqueror. He was supposed to be the next villain after the Thanos storyline, which ended with “Avengers: Endgame”.
Majors was found guilty by a New York jury on Monday for two misdemeanor charges he had been charged with about an assault that occurred earlier this year on his ex-girlfriend. Doesn’t it sound like a winner? What a terrible human being.
The Daily Wire:
Majors was found guilty by a six-member jury of assaulting in the third grade and of harassing. The jury found him not guilty of two counts including intentional assault, third-degree, and aggravated harassment in the second-degree.
The case will be sentenced on February 6, 2019.
The charges were based on an altercation he had in a vehicle with his former girlfriend Grace Jabbari. The attack left her with a broken ring finger and a bloody ear.
Jabbari testified in court that Majors had received a flirtatious message from another woman on his phone, and the woman grabbed his phone to read the message.
Majors tried to take the phone from her. He twisted her arm and finger in the process. She claimed that the actor had been trying to harm her and she received a blow to the face.
The Hollywood Reporter reported that the charges against Majors had been brought by New York rather than Jabbari. It was a civil trial as opposed to a criminal one, so the burden of proof fell on the jury. They had to prove guilt beyond reasonable doubt for each charge.
The arrest already has implications for what was the biggest year of Majors’ career. This included starring roles as Ant-Man and Wasp: Quantumania Creed III, and Loki Season 2. After his arrest, his management at Management 360 and his publicity company, The Lede Company, dropped him, while Disney-owned Searchlight Features pulled Magazine Dreams off its release schedule.
Marvel must decide whether to recast Kang’s role, abandon the storyline, or continue with Majors. The Disney-owned studio could face severe backlash if it chooses the second option, which would mean the end of MCU forever. Kang has already appeared in several movies and TV series, and his character was used to establish him as the villain in the next Avengers film. It’s too late to change the direction of the story.
The only option they have is booting this guy from the role and recasting.
The evidence seems to prove that Majors did indeed carry out the assault. He should be held accountable for his actions. He probably killed his career in film and TV by allowing his emotions to control him instead of governing them.
No one, regardless of how wealthy and famous they may be, should be thought above the law. This is a topic that has been brought to the forefront in recent times, with President Joe Biden being investigated, along with his son Hunter Biden for a possible influence peddling scheme.
It is necessary to eliminate the two-tiered justice system. This is achieved by holding everyone accountable for their actions – whether they are a popular actor or politician.
