The Timeline Of Jonathan Majors’ Assault Arrest Explained
The timeline of Majors’ arrest has been prevalent throughout much of 2023. The actor was initially arrested in March 2023 for an altercation with his then-partner Jabbari. Majors pleaded not guilty to the charges raised against him and was subsequently released from custody shortly thereafter. Since then, Majors’ representation has been preparing for the trial by gathering evidence in an attempt prove his plea.
Naturally, a case attributed to a star as big as Majors raised questions about his future as an actor. In April 2023, a month after Majors’ arrest, Deadline reported that the actor had been dropped by his talent management, Entertainment 360, and his PR firm, The Lede Company. Deadline also reported that there were no internal discussions from Marvel Studios to recast the actor. From then on, little in the way of updates has been provided outside of revelations pertaining to either the defense or the prosecution’s cases. As such, the November 2023 trial date set for Majors will confirm his future one way or another.
