Marvel Actor Jonathan Majors Found Guilty in Assault Case, Faces Professional Fallout
Jonathan Majors

Jonathan Majors, renowned for his role in Marvel's cinematic universe, has been found guilty by a Manhattan jury on two misdemeanor counts of harassment and assault in the case involving his ex-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari. The verdict, delivered on Monday, acquitted Majors on one count of intentional assault in the third degree and one count of aggravated harassment in the second degree.



The incident, leading to Majors' arrest in March in New York City, involved an assault on Jabbari in the backseat of a private vehicle. Jabbari, a 30-year-old choreographer who met Majors on the set of Marvel's Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, testified that the altercation occurred after she saw a text message from another woman on Majors' phone. She described a forceful attempt by Majors to retrieve his phone, resulting in a significant blow to her head and subsequent injuries.



The sentencing for Majors is scheduled for February 6, with the actor facing the possibility of up to a year in jail or probation. Despite the guilty verdict, Majors, who was seated in the courtroom with his attorneys and his current girlfriend Meagan Good, did not visibly react.



Marvel Studios swiftly severed ties with Majors following the verdict, marking a significant professional fallout for the actor who played the central villain, Kang the Conqueror, in Disney's Marvel Cinematic Universe. Majors was anticipated to appear in future installments, including Avengers: The Kang Dynasty in 2025.



While Majors still maintains faith in the legal process and looks forward to clearing his name, his defense attorney Priya Chaudhry expressed disappointment in the jury's decision. Chaudhry highlighted the jury's rejection of Jabbari's story regarding intentional injuries but voiced discontent with the finding that Majors was somehow reckless during the altercation.



Throughout the two-week trial, Majors consistently denied assaulting Jabbari, and his defense team contended that Jabbari was the aggressor that night, suggesting she fabricated the allegations in the aftermath of their breakup. The trial presented evidence, including texts and audio recordings, depicting a tumultuous relationship, with Majors allegedly being manipulative and controlling, and the prosecution characterizing his actions as indicative of domestic violence tactics.



The case has had far-reaching consequences for Majors' career, with Marvel Studios severing ties, his manager Entertainment 360 dropping him, and his indie project, "Magazine Dreams," removed from Searchlight Pictures' release schedule. Despite these setbacks, Majors remains represented by the talent agency WME.
