Jonathan Majors' assault case heads to trial

Jonathan Majors' assault trial is now moving forward, after the judge rejected his motion to dismiss charges.

Majors was arrested after a alleged domestic argument with his then girlfriend Grace Jabbari.

Before the incident, the actor had been on the cusp of stardom after big roles in Marvel's "Ant-Man and the Wasp Quantumania" and "Creed III."

Jonathan Majors, the Marvel Cinematic Universe's actor, will face assault charges in court next month. A New York judge denied Majors' motion to dismiss his case on Wednesday.

According to Manhattan District Attorney, the trial will be held on November 29.

Majors was arrested in March for alleged abuse against his 30-year-old girlfriend Grace Jabbari during a ride in a car to an apartment located in New York's Chelsea neighborhood.

The incident

Majors's rise to Hollywood stardom coincided with the release of this album.

He was poised for a breakthrough year after previously appearing in HBO's Lovecraft Country. His major roles in the March release of "Creed III," and the February "Ant-Man and the Wasp Quantumania" were key to his success. This film and his appearances in the Disney+ series "Loki" positioned him as the next major antagonist for Disney's multi-billion dollar Marvel Cinematic Universe.
