Johnathan Majors, who has starred as “He Who Remains” and “Kang the Conqueror” in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, was arrested in New York City over the weekend for assaulting a woman, according to TMZ.
Law enforcement sources tell us the actor was booked Saturday morning on charges of strangulation, assault and harassment. We’re told cops responded to a call for service around 11 AM ET near the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan.
We’re told the alleged victim in this case, a female, relayed to police that Majors had gotten into a dispute with her and proceeded to attack her. Their exact relationship is unknown.
Our sources tell us the alleged victim had visible injuries — including a laceration behind her ear, redness and marks to her face. She was taken to an area hospital and is in stable condition. As for Majors … he was cuffed and taken to jail on the spot, as police felt there was enough evidence for probable cause. We’re hearing he is currently out of custody.
Representatives for Majors are currently denying the assault claims.
Obviously, such actions would have major implications on the future of the Marvel Cinematic universe as Majors is playing the main villain of the ongoing Multiverse Saga, most recently appearing in “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” and is set to appear in season 2 of Loki on Disney+, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, and Avengers: Secret Wars, among other projects.
