Jonathan Majors was dropped by his management team following his arrest in March for assaulting his ex-girlfriend. Now it’s being reported that he was dumped by a prestigious talent agency for being “brutal” toward staff.
The revelation leaked out in an article about an annual retreat where Marvel execs gathered to decide Majors’ fate in the Marvel Universe.
According to Variety.com, talent agency CAA reportedly parted ways with Majors — prior to his arrest — for his “brutal conduct” toward staff.
Marvel’s executives and creatives gathered in Palm Springs recently for the studio’s annual retreat.
“The most pressing issue to be discussed at the retreat was what to do about Jonathan Majors, the actor who had been poised to carry the next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but instead is headed to a high-profile trial in New York later this month on domestic violence charges. The actor insists he is the victim, but the damage to his reputation and the chance he could lose the case has forced Marvel to reconsider its plans to center the next phase of its interlocking slate of sequels, spinoffs and series around Majors’ villainous character, Kang the Conqueror.”
