Jonathan Majors Gets Guilty Verdict on Two Counts in Assault Trial

Jonathan Majors has received a guilty verdict on two counts of harassment and assault, but has been acquitted on two other counts, according to Variety. The Manhattan jury reached this decision on Monday, finding Majors not guilty on one count of intentional assault in the third degree and aggravated harassment in the second degree. The acclaimed actor, known for his role as Kang The Conqueror in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, could face up to one year in jail. His sentencing trial is scheduled for February 6th.

During the reading of the verdict, Majors, clad in a dark grey suit and seated with his attorneys and girlfriend Meagan Goode, reportedly displayed no visible reaction. The charges stem from an alleged dispute with then-girlfriend Grace Jabbari, leading to Majors’ arrest on March 25. Despite maintaining his innocence and pleading not guilty to all charges, Disney has taken action by removing the film “Magazine Dreams” from its release calendar due to Majors’ domestic abuse charges.

On October 25, a New York judge denied a motion to dismiss the case against Majors. The actor’s legal team has consistently argued that Jabbari was the aggressor in the altercation. Notably, on the same day as Majors’ motion denial, Jabbari was also arrested on misdemeanor charges related to the incident. However, the charges against her were dropped after the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office reviewed the facts and concluded that Jabbari was the victim, not the perpetrator.

“Magazine Dreams,” originally slated for release on December 8, is a Searchlight-acquired drama that premiered at Sundance in January. The film, directed by Elijah Bynum, features Majors as an amateur bodybuilder aspiring to stardom in professional weightlifting competitions.

As of now, Disney has not issued a statement on the situation. There is a possibility that they could reconsider adding “Magazine Dreams” back to the release schedule at a later date. Meanwhile, the House of Mouse has decided to postpone the release of its live-action Snow White remake and Pixar’s “Elio.” The Snow White remake, starring Rachel Zegler and Gal Gadot, will now premiere on March 21, 2025 (originally scheduled for March 22, 2024), and “Elio” will debut on June 13, 2025, instead of March 1, 2024.
