Marvel Cinematic Universe star Jonathan Majors has reportedly been dropped by both his management and PR agency, according to reports. His exit from his management agency was “due to issues of the actors’ personal behavior.”
Majors’ split from his management and PR team comes a few weeks after he was arrested on assault, strangulation, and harassment charges in New York City. In addition to splitting with his team, “Majors and fashion house Valentino ‘mutually agreed’ that the actor would not be attending this year’s Met Gala as one of its guests,” according to Deadline.
Prior to the arrest, the 33-year-old was experiencing a career year, as he starred in projects such as Devotion, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, and Creed III all within a few months of each other.
Prior to those recent parts, Majors was previously known for his roles in projects such as Loki, Hostiles, White Boy Rick, The Last Black Man in San Francisco, Da 5 Bloods, and The Harder They Fall.
According to reports, despite the legal issues, there is currently “zero conversation” at Marvel Studios about dropping Majors from the MCU.
In the days following Majors’ arrest, his team has denied the allegations, saying that Majors “has done nothing wrong” ad that they “look forward to clearing his name and clearing this up.” Majors himself, however, has yet to make public comments about the incident.
The next project that Majors has in the pipeline is the drama film Magazine Dreams, which was acquired by Disney’s Searchlight Pictures following a flashy premiere at Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.
