Jonathan Majors and his talent agent have reportedly gone their separate ways.
While the 33-year-old denies any wrongdoing, it hasn't stopped the allegation affecting his career.
UNILAD has reached out to the company for comment.
The arrest came last month as the actor was enjoying a lot of good press in Hollywood.
His name was on not one but two blockbuster films, Creed III and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantamania, and he was being lauded as a rising star.
Majors even presented an award at the Academy Awards alongside co-star Michael B. Jordan.
But the actor was arrested in March after being accused of assaulting a woman in a domestic dispute.
Police said officers responded to a 911 call from an apartment in New York's Chelsea neighbourhood at around 11am on 25 March.
According to the cops, the 30-year-old woman allegedly sustained minor injuries to her head and neck, and was later taken to hospital.
Majors was arrested on charges of strangulation, assault and harassment.
A representative for Majors said the actor 'has done nothing wrong'.
"We look forward to clearing his name and clearing this up," they said in a statement.
Majors’ criminal defense attorney Priya Chaudhry explained to Deadline: "Jonathan Majors is completely innocent and is probably the victim of an altercation with a woman he knows.
“We are quickly gathering and presenting evidence to the District Attorney with the expectation that all charges will be dropped imminently.”
She added that they have evidence that 'includes video footage from the vehicle where this episode took place, witness testimony from the driver and others who both saw and heard the episode, and most importantly, two written statements from the woman recanting these allegations'.
Jeff Sneider of The Hot Mic podcast claimed that studio bosses at Marvel are 'in discussions' to find a replacement if needed.
He suggested that Damson Idris (Black Mirror, Snowfall) could end up taking over the role.
“Even though there hasn't been any movement on the Jonathan Majors front, I've heard that's the kind of actor, who, like, if Jonathan Majors got the boot as Kang, someone like Damson Idris is the type of the person that [Marvel] may look at to replace him if that, in fact, happens,” Sneider said.
