Earlier this year, Jonathan Majors made his debut as Kang the Conqueror, a significant villain in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, appearing in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

In the recent legal developments, the 34-year-old Marvel star was found guilty of one count of third-degree assault and one count of harassment by the jury. Notably, he was acquitted of another assault count and an aggravated harassment charge.

The charges emerged from an incident in March in New York, where Majors was arrested following accusations from his former partner, Grace Jabbari. She claimed that Majors slapped her, threw her into a car after she exited it, twisted her arm, and grabbed, injuring her hand. Despite Majors maintaining his innocence and pleading not guilty to all four charges, he now faces sentencing on February 6, with a potential maximum sentence of up to one year in prison.

In September, Marvel executives, led by studio chief Kevin Feige, held discussions in Palm Springs regarding contingency plans in light of Jonathan Majors' legal situation. The discussions reportedly included considering alternative comic book adversaries, such as Dr. Doom, in case of any complications with Majors' involvement.

CNN also spoke to an anonymous source from WME, a prominent Hollywood talent agency representing Majors. The source expressed that if Marvel were to sever ties with Majors, it would signify a significant impact on his future prospects. The source emphasized, "If he's found guilty... there's nothing to represent." The outcome of Majors' legal situation could potentially have far-reaching consequences for his career in the entertainment industry.
