Jonathan Majors’ assault trial postponed until September; prosecutors ask ‘more time to prepare’ | English Movie News

Actor Jonathan Majorsdomestic violence trial was postponed until at least September 6 after New York City prosecutors asked Thursday for more time to prepare.

Majors, 33, appeared in court for what was to have been the start of his trial on charges stemming from a March confrontation with a woman who says he twisted her arm behind her back, struck her on the head and pushed her into a vehicle.

The woman was treated at a hospital for minor neck and head injuries, including a cut to her ear. Majors is charged with misdemeanours, including assault, and could be sentenced to as much as a year in jail if convicted.
The judge set a new tentative trial date of Sept. 6 after prosecutors from the Manhattan district attorney’s office requested more time for discovery.
Majors walked out of the courtroom after the hearing, acknowledging some seated in the gallery. At one point he bumped his hand to his heart to a woman seated near the door.

Majors, who plays the villain Kang the Conqueror in the Marvel films, has denied the accusations.
On the work front, Majors will be seen next in the Marvel web series ‘Loki Season 2′ where he will be seen starring opposite Tom Hiddleston and Owen Wilson.
He is also set to play the major villain in the upcoming Avengers film ‘Kang Dynasty’.
