After making his Marvel movie debut with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Jonathan Majors rocked the box office with Creed III. While Majors is thriving in his professional life, his personal life doesn’t seem to follow the same. The American actor has allegedly been accused of assaulting a 30-year-old woman and was arrested by the New York Police Department on Saturday for the same.
The NYPD has released a statement regarding his arrest. However, his representatives have denied any charges, saying that Majors has done nothing wrong.

I know this has nothing to do with severity of these incidents but… Jonathan Majors was supposed to be in Loki Season 2, Fantastic Four, Avengers Kang Dynasty of course, Avengers Secret Wars, and Agatha Coven of Chaos. With all of them centered around him. The MCU is FINISHED

and he HAS to get fired. He has to go. There is no way he can be the mainstay of MCU’s story with the victims seeing him plastered over the world, in merchandise, in everything in and around film. He’s done. The MCU have to recast, and redo everything from last point of filming

Guys, with the Jonathan Majors stuff, you already know what Marvel will do. Recast. Move on. Progress.
Let's not waste energy asking about that. Right now, let's focus on the actual important real details of the situation.

Jonathan Majors has been released from his marvel contract. We wish him well in all his future endeavors. Ultimately Mr. Majors is responsible for his own actions. We hope he gets the help he needs. – Kev Feige

The Devotion star is expected to appear in the second season of Loki and the next Avengers films The Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars. Fans noted that these reports of him allegedly being an abuser is not a good indication for the studio’s upcoming projects, especially the ones that are associated with Majors.
So far, Marvel Studios has not said anything about the alleged accusations. However, fans have seemingly put out their verdict as they claim that they no longer wish to see an alleged abuser in the MCU.
