- Jonathan Majors’ film “Magazine Dreams” has been delayed by Disney due to his pending assault trial, which starts just a week before the film’s original release date.
- Disney is uncertain about the trial’s outcome and is taking precautions by postponing the film.
- Despite the delay, Disney has continued with the second season of “Loki,” in which Majors has a prominent role, suggesting support within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Actor Jonathan Majors will not be releasing his anticipated film “Magazine Dreams” this year, as Disney has decided to put the release on hold. This decision comes amidst Majors’ pending assault trial. The film was originally set to be released in early December under Disney’s Searchlight Pictures subsidiary, but the release date has now been moved to an indefinite period.
The timing of this decision is not surprising, as Majors’ trial is scheduled to begin on November 29, just a week before the film’s original release date. Disney is uncertain about the outcome of the trial and is therefore taking precautions by delaying the film.
Interestingly, Disney proceeded with the second season of the series “Loki,” which prominently features Majors. The show has received positive reviews, particularly for Majors’ performance as Kang. It seems that Disney has supported him in the context of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), but is hesitant to release a film that revolves solely around him.
It is important to note that the ongoing actors’ strike may also factor into Disney’s decision.
Adding to the complexities of the situation, there have been several twists in Majors’ case. His accuser and ex-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari, was arrested by the NYPD on suspicion of assault, despite the Manhattan D.A.’s office stating that they will not prosecute her. This conflicting action by the police suggests a lack of coordination between the two agencies.
Furthermore, the D.A. has introduced a UK police report detailing alleged domestic violence in England involving another woman and Majors. However, the specifics of this incident remain unclear. Additionally, surveillance footage and pictures of Jabbari after the alleged assault show her appearing unharmed, further complicating the case.
Ultimately, the truth will come to light as Majors’ trial moves forward. It remains to be seen what impact this will have on his relationship with Disney.
