Marvel Pushes Back Jonathan Majors Avengers Movies Each for a Year, Amazon Erases Actor from “Creed III” Page, New Hearing Tomorrow on Domestic Assault Charges


There’s a lot of bad news for Jonathan Majors today as he awaits his next hearing tomorrow on domestic abuse charges.

Disney has moved back their two “Avengers” movies in which he was supposed to play the new villain, Kang. They won’t come out now until late 2026 and 2027.

Is Marvel (Disney) recasting? Or rewriting? Either may be the cause of the delays.

Majors remains in hot water, although presumed innocent at this point. He was arrested after a March 25th incident in New York in which his girlfriend claimed that he struck in her face with an open hand, causing a laceration behind her ear. The complaint was updated to say that the woman also sustained injuries to her arm and hand and that she was allegedly pushed into the side of a vehicle by Majors.

Meanwhile, “Creed III” has come to Amazon Prime and there’s no sign of Majors on the landing page. When you go to rent the movie you have no idea he’s the star of it!

It’s a mess, and it will get worse when we find out what Disney Searchlight is going to with Majors’ film “Magazine Dreams,” which they bought at Sundance for a lot of money. An Oscar campaign seems unlikely now.
