How Will Marvel Resolve the Jonathan Majors Situation?

Marvel Studios has reportedly been “discussing options” with Majors’ team regarding his future as the MCU’s Kang the Conqueror, although it seems no decision has yet been made regarding his future.

While certain reports have claimed Marvel Studios may be exploring a recast and may even have a particular actor type in mind with Damson Idris, others have suggested that idea hasn’t been brought to the table yet.

Back when James Gunn was fired from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 after a series of controversial old tweets resurfaced, Disney’s Alan Horn, who was the one to oust the director, supposedly “couldn’t sleep” over the decision. So perhaps the studio will look to take its time to see how things play out this time around.

Much of Marvel Studios’ response to Jonathan Majors’ allegations will likely hinge on his legal proceedings and any evidence that may emerge from them. The actor already appeared for a hearing via Zoom, with his next court date set for June 13.

Whatever happens with Majors’ verdict and how it affects public opinion ought to help guide Marvel Studios’ decision on whether to recast Kang. In the meantime, the studio will likely continue to closely monitor the situation, remain in contact with Majors’ team, and weigh a number of options.

If Majors is found guilty, it’s tough to imagine a world where Disney, Marvel, or any major studio for that matter, would be looking to work with him anytime soon. This is especially true when it comes to a role like Kang which would make Majors the face of the MCU’s storytelling for several years to come.

So, will Jonathan Majors be recast as the MCU’s Kang? The honest answer, for now, is nobody knows, and it’s unlikely any decision has even been made.
