I mean there is an outcome here where Majors sues New York for wrongful prosecution seeking damages to his career.

It's in the article they couldn't find anything supporting felonies so this is the best shot they have.
I get that! But the original leaks were that it was so heinous he was going to prison forever! How do you go from that to, well, maybe it's not as bad as we thought? I am wondering if this will get plea bargained down?

I would say that it falls back on the police department and prosecutor.

No matter how this turns out Marvel brilliantly setup themselves up to pivot from Majors after Loki Season 2 if need be.

It’s weird how Hollywood picks and chooses their battles.

Not discounting what Majors did at all, but there are others in the industry, still working who’ve done far, far worse.

I agree with this. Like how did Kevin Spacey get a new movie. Gross!

Several charges against him were dismissed and he went to trial and was declared not guilty of the remaining charges, as of July 2023.

less than one year after being found guilty of domestic abuse and this guy gets hired for a new movie... called Merciless, no less.


oh... of course it's being developed by the Sound Of Freedom producer. This makes a lot more sense now.

“Merciless” is being developed at Sentient by producer Christopher Tuffin, who backed last year’s box office sleeper hit “Sound of Freedom.” He plans to start a new media venture that “refuses to let the court of public opinion and selective prosecution undermine great art and artists.”
