An NYPD statement obtained by Insider said authorities arrested Majors on Saturday after responding to a 911 call. Police said a "preliminary investigation" found the actor and a woman were involved in a "domestic dispute."

Representatives for 33-year-old Majors denied that the star had done anything wrong in a statement to Insider.

"We look forward to clearing his name and clearing this up," his representative told Insider previously.

Majors is no longer under police custody, according to TMZ, which first reported the arrest on Saturday.

News of Majors' arrest comes at a time when his star is rising in Hollywood with films like "Creed III" and Marvel's "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania."

Majors is slated to have a major role in the next Marvel Avengers film, "Avengers: The Kang Dynasty."

Majors entered the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Kang the Conqueror, a universe-ending villain who debuted in the "Loki" season one finale. Although he was credited as "He Who Remains" in the Loki credits, fans recognized it as a reference to the villainous Kang.

After portraying Kang in "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania," Majors is set to reprise the character in Marvel's "Avengers: The Kang Dynasty." Details about the film's plot are under wraps, but he'll likely star alongside a number of Marvel actors. According to IMDb, Paul Rudd (Ant-Man) and Iman Vellani (Ms. Marvel) are among the rumored cast.

The film is scheduled to hit theaters on May 2, 2025. Marvel did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

Majors is also tied to "Avengers: Secret Wars," which is set to hit theaters in 2026.

According to IMDb, "The Man in My Basement" is a thriller that began pre-production this month. Majors' company, Tall Street Productions, is producing the project alongside B.O.B Filmhouse and Protagonist Pictures. He is also an executive producer on the project.

"Charles Blakey, an African American man living in Sag Harbor, is stuck in a rut, out of luck and about to lose his ancestral home when a peculiar white businessman with a European accent offers to rent his basement for the summer," the film summary said.

Willem Dafoe, who's also appeared in Marvel films as the Green Goblin, is cast as Anniston Bennet.

B.O.B Filmhouse and Protagonist Pictures did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

Majors will also take on the role of Victor Timely, one of Kang the Conquerer's variants, in the second season of "Loki."

"Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania" director Peyton Reed told IndieWire in February that the film's post-credit scenes set up Majors to play the variant in the upcoming season.

"It's a scene from season two of 'Loki,' and Victor Timely is yet another variant from the comics. I love Jonathan's look and his sort of period voice and his Frederick Douglass hair," he said. "That scene, there was just another glimpse of sort of, 'OK, there are all these variants and here's maybe the next one you might meet.' We liked that idea."

Although the second season of the show doesn't have an official release date yet, stars Tom Hiddleston, Owen Wilson, Ke Huy Quan, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw are all set to reprise their roles.

The actor is also set to star and produce the drama "Da Understudy" from Amazon Studios and Westbrook Studios.

Deadline reported on March 7 that Majors will produce the film under his Tall Street Productions banner, which also produced his recent film "Magazine Dreams."

Anonymous sources told both Deadline and Variety earlier this month that Spike Lee was in early talks to direct. Lee and Majors previously worked together on the 2020 war drama "Da 5 Bloods."

So far, Majors is the only confirmed cast member in the movie, which is currently in pre-production. It's described on IMDb as "the tale of how life imitates art when a Broadway production's understudy discovers a role he would kill for."

Representatives for Amazon Studios did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

Majors is tied to "48 Hours in Vegas," a film about former NBA star Dennis Rodman.

According to ESPN, the story is inspired by an impromptu trip Rodman took to Las Vegas, Nevada, in the middle of the Chicago Bulls 1997-1998 season. 

Although IMDb says the project is in pre-production, Majors told the Associated Press earlier this month that he wanted to connect with Rodman before taking on the role.

"Hopefully I get to sit with him and chat with him, you know, when we get closer, trying to get the script right, all these things, all these industry things," he said. "I never really put a ceiling on myself, but this is definitely a role where I'm definitely going to make sure I'm pushing that ceiling out ... "
