Producer explains why Jonathan Majors appears in new Loki series despite assault allegations

Jonathan Majors will still feature in the second season of 'Loki'

A Disney+ executive producer has addressed if Jonathan Majors will be in the second series of Loki or not.

Back in March, Majors was arrested after being accused of alleged assault.

According to a police statement about the incident at the time, a woman had sustained minor injuries to her head and neck and was taken to hospital.

The 34-year-old's representative has insisted that the actor is innocent, saying: "He has done nothing wrong. We look forward to clearing his name and clearing this up."

However, more women have come forward with allegations against the Marvel star and he was later dropped from his talent agency.

There were also reports that Marvel was 'in discussions' about replacing Majors in the MCU.

He made his Marvel debut as Kang the Conquerer in the first series of Loki, and went on to feature in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania as well.

And with Loki's second series dropping on Disney+ in the coming days, many have questioned if Majors will be back as Kang - and producer Kevin Wright has confirmed that, as it stands, he will.

Filming for the second series finished in 2022 before Majors' arrest. But Wright says the charges the actor is facing didn't result in any changes to the pending series.

"The story that is on screen is the story we set out to make," he told Variety.

Jonathan Majors made his Kang debut in Loki.

"We went out there with a very specific idea of what we wanted this to be, and we found a way to tell it in that production period. It’s very much what’s on screen on Disney+."

But Wright went on to add that Loki 2 is 'the first Marvel series to never have any additional photography'.

In regards to Majors' future in the MCU, Wright claimed that he doesn't know much about it all.

"It felt hasty to do anything without knowing how all of this plays out." he added.

Wright also denied that there were any discussions about making changes to the show in the wake of Majors' arrest.

Majors has pleaded not guilty to charges of misdemeanor assault, aggravated harassment, attempted assault and harassment.

At one stage, he also faced charges of strangulation, but this was later dropped.

The Creed III star was set to face trial in early September, but his next key hearing has since been pushed back to 25 October.

Majors' also has a girlfriend, Meagan Good, who is an actor herself, having appeared in Harlem and Shazam! Fury of the Gods.

And an ex-Nickelodeon co-star of Good defended their relationship, saying that she was 'one of the most iconic people on the planet'.
