Jonathan Majors, the actor set to play the villain Kang the Conqueror in the upcoming Avengers 5 movie, is embroiled in a legal battle that could potentially land him in jail for a year. Majors is facing an assault charge after his arrest in late March, and the case has garnered widespread attention, sparking a lot of speculation in the media.
The possibility of Majors being sentenced to jail has raised concerns among his fans and cast members alike. The actor’s legal troubles have also jeopardized his role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
With multiple women coming forward with similar allegations of abuse, Majors’ future as an MCU star is questioned. The public is eagerly awaiting updates on the case, and the outcome could significantly impact the actor’s career.
Jonathan Majors faces potential jail time and possible career consequences
The future of Jonathan Majors’ career in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is now in question after new charges were revealed during his recent court hearing. The actor, set to play the villain Kang the Conqueror in the upcoming Phase 5 and 6 of the MCU, faces a potential jail sentence of up to a year if he is found guilty in his ongoing assault case.
At the hearing, it was announced that a superseding complaint had been filed by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office, adding a charge of third-degree assault, which carries a maximum sentence of 12 months in jail or three years probation.
While Majors did not enter a plea, he was reminded by the judge of the order of protection that prohibits him from further contact with the plaintiff, his former girlfriend. This development has sparked public outrage and raised concerns about the future of Majors’ career in the entertainment industry.
Majors’ assault case: Defense team responds to new charges and allegations
The Manhattan District Attorney’s office has leveled new charges against Jonathan Majors, the star of the upcoming Loki season 2, in his ongoing assault case. However, after a recent court hearing, his defense team criticized the DA’s case and claimed to have “irrefutable evidence” that the alleged victim was lying:
“We have provided the District Attorney with irrefutable evidence that the woman is lying, including video proof showing nothing happened, especially not where she claimed.”
Jonathan Majors’ lawyer, Priya Chaudhry, accused the DA of “a witch hunt” against her client and stressed that there were no new charges against him. Chaudhry further claimed that the case was a “glaring double standard” and accused the white officers at the scene of ignoring Majors’ injuries caused by his ex-girlfriend and taunting him:
“Instead of dismissing the allegations in the face of the woman’s clear lies, the DA has adjusted the charges to match the woman’s new lies. To be clear, there are no new charges against Mr. Majors.
She continued by saying:
Now, we have obtained even more video evidence of his innocence, but we are hesitant to share it, for fear the DA will tip the woman off to change her story again.”
Additionally, multiple women have come forward with allegations of abuse, further intensifying public scrutiny of the case. Despite the defense team‘s claims of innocence, the public must wait until the next hearing on June 13 to learn more about the case.
