Jonathan Majors Faced The Same Problem As Creed’s Damian Anderson

Remember when Jonathan Majors starred as Damian Anderson in Creed 3 opposite Michael B. Jordan? His character spent 18 years in prison after being involved in an assault. When he came out of jail, he made his greatest comeback by enacting his revenge against Adonis Creed who he feels cost him his boxing career.

Majors getting imprisoned for the same reason his Creed character was charged for is truly an intriguing coincidence. While the actor won’t be spending almost two decades behind bars, he will have enough time to reevaluate himself and think of his future. What would he do once he gets out? Probably make the biggest comeback movie, just like Anderson coming back to boxing.

Fans would recall how Will Smith’s issue regarding the Oscars slap tarnished his shining career, spent a couple of months laying low, and then came back with Emancipation, his first-ever project after the Oscar scandal.

Many fans hesitated to see it in theaters, which is quite understandable. The same effect would definitely also happen with Majors coming back with a new movie, though fans should not expect him to return as Kang The Conqueror because Marvel Studios has already fired the actor, as per CNBC.

Now, the only thing Marvel can do to fix this mess is either to recast the part or redevelop the story and find a new villain. After Majors’ assault issue, it would be difficult to find new actors who would want to fill in the gap played by an actor who was publicly terminated.

Jonathan Majors’ career is indeed in turmoil now, though he could still return with a bang, especially with projects that still have not dropped him yet. However, the news of his conviction is still fresh and there will be more updates coming up regarding his connections in the next few weeks.

It remains to be seen what would happen to Majors after his time in prison. While his Creed co-star Michael B. Jordan has not yet reacted to the actor’s conviction, many fans speculate that he has been distancing himself from the Magazine Dreams star.

It is hard to tell how Majors would bounce back after such a tragic event, even more so when people from the industry have been discouraging others from making deals with him. An entertainment executive even told People that “no studio or production company would be right to be working with him in this moment.”

Priya Chaudhry, Majors’ defense lawyer, expressed disappointment at the jury’s verdict, though the actor still hopes to clear his name.
