“I’ve heard that Marvel hasn’t made any decisions regarding Jonathan Majors but they’ve met with or spoken to his agent to discuss potential options going forward.”

It is difficult to say if the actor is guilty or not because the actor’s legal team has released text messages between the couple to prove his innocence. Therefore, it will be only a matter of time before Marvel gives a statement about the actor’s future in the franchise.

The Marvel Studios are in their biggest dilemma because Da 5 Bloods actor was arrested only a few days ago, hence the studio would like to have some time before deciding the actor’s future. The fans have loved the actor since his first appearance in Loki, and his performance was so impressive that he became the villain for the next two phases of the franchise. Therefore, the studio will refrain from taking any rash and impulsive decisions.
