Jonathan Majors’ future in Marvel Cinematic Universe
The domestic violence case had a massive impact on the impression and profile of Jonathan Majors. The first blow came when the US Army pulled the ads featuring the actor, due to the arrest and ongoing investigation. This move has also led to a train of thoughts regarding the future of Jonathan Majors in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The actor plays the role of Kang The Conquerer in the MCU and was last seen in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. As per future projects, he is supposed to be part of Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars, both will feature Kang as the main antagonist. Taking his character out of the MCU will be a very difficult task, hence, it has left fans wondering about the future of Kang.
A fan asked on social media,
“Do you know anything about Jonathan Majors getting the boot from Marvel?”
Another Twitter user replied,
“Marvel has a really good relationship with Majors, they’re waiting for this to play out and see what public opinion evolves into.
Also, they legally can’t boot him from any project he’s signed on to – they will have to negotiate/settle an agreement with his team.”

As per the laws, the MCU producers cannot boot Majors from any upcoming project he has already signed. However, if the actor is found guilty, then there is a high chance that Kang may be recast. Marvel has recast roles for others in the past and can also do them again for this case if needed. Kang is a key character in connecting the dots between the next two Avengers movies. Hence, Marvel might be forced to make a smart decision to avoid further backlash. Also to be noted, Marvel met Majors’ representatives after his arrest, but there is no clarity on Kang’s position in the MCU.
