2024 looks to be another tough year for Jonathan Majors. While the early part of 2023 seemed to indicate a smashing year of success for the celebrity with his performances in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and Creed 3, his arrest on charges of assault and harassment threw a dampener in the works. Now, with a guilty verdict in court, Majors seems to have passed on his ill-luck to the Marvel franchise as well.

Despite being the only saving grace in the Ant-Man 3, the Devotion star unfortunately lost out on his Marvel gig following the result in court.  In addition, Majors could earn another dubious distinction if the film wins a Razzie for Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off, or Sequel.

Despite A Brilliant Kang, Jonathan Majors’ Marvel Film Is A Razzie Nominee

Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania did not live up to its hype at the box office and with critics. The lukewarm responses to the film and certain harsh opinions regarding its treatment were countered partly through a powerful performance by Jonathan Majors as the chilling antagonist Kang the Conqueror. More significantly, the character was seen as the pivot who will play an integral part in future MCU narratives leading up to Avengers: Secret Wars.

Unfortunately, the travails in Majors’ personal life in 2023, which resulted in a guilty court verdict for assault and harassment, had a direct effect on his professional reputation. If his official ousting from Marvel was a big blow, the Captive State star’s ill-luck continued further with Ant-Man 3  being featured in 4 nominations at the 2024 Razzie Awards which includes Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off, or Sequel as per a release from The Hollywood Reporter 

This embarrassing distinction is also a first for any Marvel film at the Razzies and therefore rubs more salt into the wound for not only Kevin Feige and team, but for Jonathan Majors as well considering the fact the his impressive performance was the only bright spark that prevented the film from completely sinking into oblivion.

Jonathan Majors’ First Interview After Guilty verdict

There’s a lot to take in and process for Jonathan Majors mentally and emotionally after the star was convicted in a domestic violence trial. Apart from his personal life being in shambles, the guilty verdict has capsized the actor’s professional career as well. Following Marvel officially ending their association with Majors, the Creed 3 star has faced a domino effect of rejections from various other projects that were in the pipeline.

In his first interview post the trial, Majors sat down with ABC News and recalled the moments leading up to the verdict and expressed his concerns about what transpired inside the court. He also regretted certain decisions in his life that he believed were the root causes for his current challenges.


“I was absolutely shocked and afraid. I was standing there as the verdict came down and I said how is that possible, based off of the evidence based off of the prosecution’s evidence, let alone our evidence. I shouldn’t have been in the car. I should have stepped out of the relationship. I shouldn’t have been in the relationship.”

The actor also rued his missed opportunity at Marvel, which was a dream come true following years of hard work and determination. Unfortunately, the fairytale was not to be for Majors. The road ahead is a tough one and it remains to be seen how the celebrity navigates the obstacles.
