The moment comes amid Majors’ legal battle with an ex-girlfriend he allegedly assaulted in March. The 34-year-old Marvel Cinematic Universe and Creed III actor was arrested for misdemeanor assault, aggravated harassment, attempted assault, and harassment after the woman told the NYPD that he slapped her following an argument in an NYC taxi. He has maintained his innocence, while his lawyer Priya Chaudhry said Majors called 911 out of concern for the woman’s mental health.
Last month, Majors appeared in court alongside his girlfriend Meagan Good. During that court appearance, the trial was delayed to September 6. Vulture reports that it was delayed once again to Friday, September 15.
“For an excruciating four months, Jonathan Majors, the real victim in this shameful ordeal, has had his life, career, and reputation torn apart,” lawyer Priya Chaudhry said in a statement after the first delay. “Yet he remains unwavering in his determination to be absolved from this harrowing ordeal.”
An extensive report from Rolling Stone earlier this revealed that Majors has been accused of various instances of alleged abuse, toxicity, and aggressive behavior before his assault arrest. Despite the allegations, the actor showed up in the trailer for Loki Season 2 as a Kang the Conqueror variant in July.
