Closing arguments begin on Thursday. Depending on how long the jury deliberates, a verdict could be reached on Friday.

Majors is on trial for alleged violence against his ex-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari, on March 25 of this year. According to Jabbari’s testimony, she and Majors were in the backseat of a car when she saw a text message on Majors’ phone from another woman that read, “Wish I was kissing you right now.” Jabbari took the phone from Majors’ hand. He forcibly took it back, which Jabbari said caused her “excruciating pain.” Jabbari was diagnosed with a fractured finger and a cut behind her ear consistent with being hit.

The driver of the car, Naveed Sarwar, testified on Monday that he did hear Majors and Jabbari arguing. He said Majors opened the car door, saying, “Leave me alone. I want to go. I have to go.” Sarwar said Majors was “not doing anything” and that Jabbari “was doing everything.”

Evidence newly released to the public (via Variety) includes text messages from September 2022 in which Majors threatened to kill himself as he told Jabbari not to go to the hospital for a head injury because he was worried about her being questioned.

An audio recording of an argument from the same month includes Majors telling Jabbari she should support him better by acting more like Coretta Scott King and Michelle Obama.

Jonathan Majors as He Who Remains in "Loki"

Disney and Marvel have not publicly commented on Majors’ arrest. The actor has portrayed Kang the Conquerer and his variants in recent Marvel Cinematic Universe projects and is slated to appear in more films as the major villain of the Multiverse Saga. Sources say Marvel executives have considered replacing Kang with another villain character, possibly Dr. Doom.

Majors appeared in seasons one and two of “Loki” and in “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.” The Multiverse Saga is leading up to “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty” and then “Avengers: Secret Wars” in 2026 and 2027 respectively.

Disney removed the release of “Magazine Dreams,” a Searchlight Pictures film starring Majors, from their release calendar. The film originally debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in January and was supposed to be released theatrically this month.
