Another big trouble surrounding the Marvel Cinematic Universe has finally emerged and looks like the superhero world is about to witness one of the most formidable villains from Marvel comics to free itself from issues that evolved after Jonathan Major’s arrest.

Since Jonathan Majors has found himself in hot water after all the domestic violence allegations put on him by his ex-girlfriend, it has been troublesome not only for the actor but also for the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe as Majors’ character has become a significant part of the MCU which is under scrutiny.

Marvel to Reconsider Jonathan Majors’ Role in The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Acclaimed actor Jonathan Majors gained an incredible fanbase after portraying the villainous Kang the Conqueror in the MCU, especially from Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. However, the actor is losing his reputation post his ex-girlfriend’s allegation of aggravated harassment and a domestic dispute between them, and even Marvel executives have to reconsider Majors’s role in the superhero world as they featured him as a significant antagonist in the coming phase.

Jonathan Majors claims that he’s the victim being treated as a villain in real life and is bound for a high-profile trial in New York. This could not help Marvel as Kang the Conqueror is a major and significant villain not only in the ongoing Loki 2 but the next phase. The executives planned this villain as the next big thing in the universe but these allegations made the creators rethink and consider delivering a new adversary from the comics like Doctor Doom. According to Vanity Fair, a top dealmaker who has seen the final Loki episode said:

“Marvel is truly f*cked with the whole Kang angle, and they haven’t had an opportunity to rewrite until very recently [because of the WGA strike]. But I don’t see a path to how they move forward with him.”

The backup plans have created significant challenges as Jonathan Majors has already become an enormous presence in the entire universe and was set to be featured as the titular star of a fifth Avengers film in 2026. So, if the villain changes, it would be a big headache for the makers, and bringing Dr. Doom who’s already one of the most iconic and enduring antagonists in the Marvel comics has to be executed fantastically.

Ask Marvel comic enthusiasts and they will define how impactful and iconic figure is Doctor Doom whose real name is Victor Von Doom. This is why the executives might have given thought to fetching him in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as he is the best choice to counteract Kang’s enormous influence in the universe. Doctor Doom is crafted by legendary writer Stan Lee and possesses exceptional superpowers.

He is the heart of darkness, an egoistic and maniacal villain who utilizes his brilliant superhuman intelligence to augment his power. Doctor Doom isn’t just an excellent scientist but also a formidable magic user. So, his arrival from the comics to the cinematic universe will turn out to be beyond thrilling. Doctor Doom can perfectly counteract Jonathan Majors’s presence after the major damage to his image from allegations made by his ex-girlfriend.
