“Creed III” Star Jonathan Majors Gets August Trial Date for Domestic Dispute Case, Will Determine His Future


Jonathan Majors will have his day in court. This morning he was told August 3rd will be his moment of reckoning.

Majors has pleaded not guilty in an alleged domestic abuse case brought by a girlfriend who says he attacked her on March 25th in New York.

This trial is critical for Majors to win if he’s going to have a film career. He’s already starred in “Creed III” and “Ant Man III” this year, and has “Magazine Dreams” coming out this fall. He’s supposed to play the villain in two “Avengers” movies that have now each been pushed back a year because of this case. If he’s found guilty, Marvel will have find a Plan B. So will Disney Searchlight, which has “Magazine Dreams.”

What a terrible twist of fate for everyone involved.
