Jonathan Majors has been fired by his talent manager, the latest instance of the actor falling out of favor following his arrest last month on allegations of domestic violence.
Talent agency Entertainment 360, who also manages fellow Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania co-star Michelle Pfeiffer, announced they had dropped the rising actor from their list of clients earlier this week, joining his PR firm as major groups who have fired Jonathan Majors following his arrest.
Not surprisingly, almost immediately after his March arrest, word began circulating that Jonathan Majors could be not just in trouble with the law, but Marvel. While nothing has been confirmed–and it does look to be leaning towards Majors maintaining his position within the Marvel Cinematic Universe–rumblings went 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.”
Jonathan Majors and his lawyers have maintained his innocence regarding the domestic violence arrest, with one stating he “is completely innocent and is provably the victim of an altercation with a woman he knows…We are quickly gathering and presenting evidence to the District Attorney with the expectation that all charges will be dropped imminently.”
Up until his arrest, Jonathan Majors was on the fast track to becoming one of Hollywood’s most in-demand stars, with his quarter of 2023 shaping up to be an almost unprecedented run of hits. After dazzling audiences with the Sundance smash Magazine Dreams, Majors co-starred in two of the highest-grossing movies of the year so far: Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania ($213 million domestic) and Creed III ($155 million domestic). And, really, that could be maintained should these allegations turn out to be false, although some may argue that accusations alone are enough to ruin a reputation. Many continue to pull for Majors, as his Kang the Conqueror is planned to be the next Thanos in regards to the future of the MCU.
