Jonathan Majors was recently arrested for charges of domestic violence. Now, however, his situation has escalated as various alleged victims of Jonathan Majors are now cooperating with the D.A.’s office.
This news was shared by Variety. According to their sources, “multiple alleged abuse victims of Majors have come forward following his March arrest and are cooperating with the Manhattan district attorney’s office. The prospect of more women waiting in the wings would mark a dramatic turn in the case and comes on the heels of Majors’ publicists and management firm cutting ties with the embattled actor earlier this week.”
However, neither the D.A. nor Majors’ representative leave any comments on the matter. As such, this information should still be taken with a grain of salt. It’s worth noting that despite his arrest, Majors and his legal team have insisted his innocence.

Conversely, Deadline notes that Majors has been dropped from several upcoming projects. The high-profile star has been growing in notoriety in recent years. Especially for his role as Kang the Conqueror, the next big bad of the Marvel franchise. Though it’s unknown just how far he’ll continue to take the role.
Projects listed by Deadline that have dropped Majors include “Protagonist Pictures’ feature adaptation of the Walter Mosley novel, The Man in My Basement, an ad campaign for the Texas Rangers MLB team, as well as an unannounced Fifth Season’s Otis Redding biopic which the Emmy-nominated actor was circling.” This news comes as the actor was dropped by his manager, Entertainment 360, and publicist, The Lede Company.
Jonathan Majors is still attached to some projects, however, including the Lionsgate film 48 Hours in Vegas. Additionally, he’s set to appear in Amazon’s Da Understudy. And, as mentioned, it’s unknown if he’ll continue to play Kang the Conqueror. We will likely have a better understanding as this legal debacle surrounding Majors continues and how Disney in particular will react.
