The exclusive interview with Linsey Davis of ABC News Live is scheduled to air on Monday, offering insights into Majors' perspective after the verdict. This development comes in the aftermath of the 34-year-old actor being dropped by ABC and Disney, Marvel's parent company.


The guilty verdict, which included one count of third-degree assault and one count of harassment, was accompanied by acquittals on another assault charge and one charge of aggravated harassment. The incident, stemming from a domestic dispute in a Brooklyn taxi on March 25, led to allegations from Jabbari of physical abuse, including slapping, finger-fracturing, arm-twisting, and ear-striking, causing bleeding.


Majors asserted on the scene that he suspected Jabbari of attempting suicide or overdosing. The jury found that Majors recklessly assaulted Jabbari, although unintentionally, and that he did not intentionally harass her inside the car but did so outside by physically moving her. Majors' lawyer, Priya Chaudhry, expressed gratitude for the jury's skepticism about Jabbari's version while highlighting disappointment in the perceived recklessness attributed to Majors.


Despite the challenges, Majors maintains faith in the legal process and aims to clear his name fully. In contrast, Jabbari's attorney, Ross Kramer, expressed satisfaction with the verdict, emphasizing Jabbari's truthful testimony amid the traumatic events. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg underscored the evidence presented during the trial, highlighting a pattern of psychological and emotional abuse common in intimate partner violence cases.


Majors, renowned for portraying Kang the Conqueror in Marvel productions, including "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania" and "Loki," faces uncertainty in his future with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Scheduled appearances as the supervillain in "Avengers: The Kang Dynasty" (2026) and "Avengers: Secret Wars" (2027) now pose challenges, with the fifth Avengers movie tentatively titled "Avengers 5" as it remains in the script phase without an attached director.


The possibility of recasting or rewriting projects looms, given the complexities surrounding Majors. With sentencing scheduled for February 6, the aftermath of this legal saga continues to reverberate, impacting not only Majors' personal and professional life but also raising broader questions about accountability and redemption in the entertainment industry. The upcoming interview may offer glimpses into Majors' reflections on these challenges and his path forward.
