Jonathan Majors No Jail Time in Assault Case ... Intervention Instead

Jonathan Majors' punishment for the guilty verdict in his assault and harassment trial is in ... and he's avoided jail time.

The actor went into court Monday in NYC with his attorney and his girlfriend, Meagan Good, by his side. He looked solemn and serious, and didn't stop for questions. A judge sentenced him to a one-year intervention program that'll be completed in L.A.


As part of his program, he'll have to do 12 months of counseling ... one session per week over the course of 52 weeks. The D.A.'s office says if he doesn't comply with the conditions set here, he could face time behind bars.

Jonathan Majors Motion to Toss Charges Rejected ... Will Be Sentenced Soon


10:37 AM PT -- Jonathan Majors' attorney Priya Chaudhry tells TMZ ... "Jonathan feels disappointed by the outcome of the motion, yet he upholds respect for the process. He continues to draw strength from his friends, fans, family, and dogs, harnessing his art and creativity."

She concluded, "As he eagerly anticipates closing this chapter, he looks forward to redirecting his time and energy fully toward his family and his art."

Jonathan Majors wanted a judge to let him off the hook in his criminal case -- but the court just denied his request ... which means the conviction stands, and he'll be sentenced.

The actor's recent motion to have the guilty verdict set aside was rejected Wednesday in New York -- and that's bad news for him ... because it indicates that a looming sentencing date that's coming up next week will, in fact, go forward.

As we reported ... Majors' legal team filed to have the charges tossed, making a few different arguments as the basis for their position -- namely, they felt that the charges he was ultimately convicted of were unfairly assigned at the end of the trial.

Dolph Lundgren on 'Superman' Don't Know David Corenswet ... But Give Him A Chance!!!

Give Corenswet A Shot!

Dolph Lundgren's not against recasting an iconic character -- telling fans to give David Corenswet's Superman a chance ... even if he's not entirely sure who he is.

We talked to the action movie star in Los Angeles Friday, and asked him all about the DC Universe coming to an end -- 'memba, Dolph starred as King Nereus in the 'Aquaman' films -- and he says he's sad to see it go 'cause of his great time working on the flick.

DL name-drops a few of his costars from the flick before moving on to the outrage surrounding Henry Cavill being dropped as Superman for Corenswet.

Lundgren says he isn't familiar with David -- by name or reputation -- but he says fans always get up in arms when one of their fav characters ends up being played by someone else ... and they need to give the guy a chance to flex his superhero muscles.

It seems like Dolph doesn't know Corenswet's work very well -- and yet, he's very positive here, saying he's rooting for DC's newest Man of Steel ... which is pretty awesome.

That said, Dolph's very clear there's one character he doesn't want recast ... Apollo Creed, played by the late great Carl Weathers.

Lundgren -- who played Soviet boxer Ivan Drago in "Rocky IV" and fought Creed in the movie -- says no one can replace Carl. On the Superman front, though ... have it, he says.

Gwyneth Paltrow Cool It On The Superhero Movies ... Losing Their Originality

hinders quality !!!
YouTube / First We Feast

Gwyneth Paltrow's reminiscing on her glory days ... saying they don't make movies like they used to -- and blasting the superhero genre for saturating the market, despite being in many such flicks herself.

The Marvel star went on "Hot Ones" Thursday when host Sean Evans asked her about a comment "American Fiction" writer/director Cord Jefferson made at the Oscars ... basically, begging Hollywood to invest in smaller indie projects like his.

Welp, it seems like GP agrees ... saying she feels studios put more of their resources into big-budget superhero flicks these days -- and suggesting the work's suffering because of it.

Check out the vid for yourself ... Gwyneth kinda craps on the superhero genre for its lack of originality -- while adding it's impossible to cater to as many people as the studios try to while still being unique and full of substance.

Of course, Paltrow knows a thing or two about superhero movies ... she appeared as Pepper Potts -- Tony Stark/Iron Man's love interest in seven Marvel films -- so, she's been around the superhero block, which is why what she's saying is so surprising.

With that said, everyone knows Paltrow got her start in smaller-budget projects like "Se7en" and "Shakespeare in Love" -- for which she won an Oscar -- and she says the art reaches a higher form when less money is involved ... because real artists are allowed to take risks.

Gwyneth's one of many who seem burnt out on all the superhero flicks ... Paul Dano, Martin Scorsese, Jennifer Aniston, Francis Ford Coppola and others have spoken out against the genre in recent years -- with John Mulaney cracking jokes about it at the Oscars.

Bigger than all those stars, though ... audiences seem sick of superhero movies as well. Just look at the box office for "Madame Web" and "The Marvels" over the last six months or so.

You know something's wrong when you lose one of your own, like Gwyneth here ... time to rethink the formula!


Jonathan Majors is gaga for Meagan Good ... and not even his recent legal woes can put a dent in their relationship -- just check out the first words out of his mouth about her.

The couple was out and about Sunday at the 7th annual AAFCA Special Achievement Awards luncheon here in L.A. ... and the ex-Marvel star's practically glowing while sharing an update on their relationship when he was asked by Extra how they're doing.

Listen to JM's gushy response here -- he says, "We're in love... We're doing good, thanks for asking." Meagan chimes in too, saying, "We're doing great. God's good."

Jonathan has clearly got himself a keeper in Meagan ... remember, she stood by his side during his assault trial brought on by ex-GF, Grace Jabbari -- and she continues to stick by him even now post-conviction.

As we reported -- the jury ended up finding him guilty of one count of reckless assault in the third degree and one count of harassment. He was acquitted on 2 other charges.

Jonathan told us he was leaning on his faith in the aftermath of his conviction ... helping him stay strong in the run-up to his April sentencing. His legal team has filed to have the conviction tossed ... arguing the whole case was botched and unfair to him from day 1.

Of course, he'd been relying on Meagan all throughout the trial -- last month, the pair got away from NYC for a bit, hitting the road together for a cross-country road trip which included a pit stop in Dallas to see Majors' mother, Terri.

No doubt, Meagan's loyalty is rock solid ... and it's pretty clear she's sticking around for the long haul. Also interesting to see JM make the rounds in light of everything. Good on him?

Jonathan Majors Marvel ya se estaba alejando antes de la sentencia Dice un reporte

Jonathan Majors fue rápidamente abandonado por Marvel luego de que se conociera su condena por agresión, pero resulta que el estudio ya estaba pensando en seguir adelante sin el actor, al menos según un nuevo informe.

Como todos saben, el actor fue cortado minutos después de que el jurado de Nueva York lo declarara culpable de dos de los cuatro cargos presentados por su ex novia, Grace Jabbari, incluyendo los de acoso y agresión.

Por supuesto, solo terminó siendo condenado por lo que pasó fuera del carro, no por lo que ocurrió en el interior, ya que en esos casos los fiscales aseguraron que había realmente maltrato de su parte. Inmediatamente después, Marvel anunció que no iba a trabajar más con Majors en el futuro. No se demoraron ni un segundo.

Pero una nueva historia de THR sugiere que Marvel originalmente estaba planeando entablar una relación con Majors como su nuevo gran villano, pero esos planes cambiaron cuando se vio envuelto en este caso de violencia doméstica.

Dicen que la próxima película de "Avengers", que iba a llamarse "The Kang Dynasty", ya no va a incluir el nombre del personaje de Majors y están reescribiendo las próximas películas para eliminar a Kang por completo o para marginarlo y convertirlo en una nota al pie de página en la trama. Es una carga pesada, pero todo el mundo esperaba que así fuera.

Majors dejando el tribunal

Lo más interesante de este reportaje es la noción de que Marvel/Disney ya había tomado una decisión en cuanto a lo que querían hacer con Kang y Majors.

Citando fuentes, THR dice que Marvel ya estaba haciendo movimientos para minimizar la participación de Kang en las próximas películas, y la aparente razón, el dinero. Parece que la aparición de Majors en "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania" no fue un éxito financiero (definitivamente no lo fue) y debido a eso sintieron que la audiencia simplemente no estaba de humor para ver más de Kang.

La película hizo $476 millones a nivel mundial por sus visionados en los cines, pero comparado con otras películas de superhéroes, es bastante malo. Así que, a primera vista ... parece que el destino de Majors ya estaba sellado.

Por supuesto, Majors no ha sido sentenciado todavía y su equipo está tratando de que la condena sea anulada. Pero pareciera que Marvel ya le cerró la puerta a todo esto.

Jonathan Majors Marvel Was Already Pivoting Away ... Before Conviction: Report

Jonathan Majors was quickly dropped by Marvel in the wake of his assault conviction -- but as it turns, the studio was already inclined to move on ... at least according to a new report.

As everyone knows, the actor was cut loose just minutes after word came down from a NYC jury in December that he was guilty on two of four counts -- including harassment and assault -- as it pertained to charges that he'd harmed his ex-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari.

Granted, he only ended up getting convicted on what happened outside of the car -- not inside, where prosecutors claimed he'd really roughed her up -- and yet ... Marvel immediately announced he wasn't working with them going forward. They didn't skip a beat.

Welp, per a new THR story ... Marvel is now in the cleanup process of their next chapter -- as they were originally planning on hitching their wagon to Majors' star as the new big villain ... but those plans changed once he got caught up in this DV case.

They say the next 'Avengers' movie -- which was going to be called 'The Kang Dynasty' -- is now not going to include Majors' character's name at all ... and they're rewriting the next slate of films to either cut out Kang altogether, or to seriously sideline him and make him a footnote in the larger plot. It's a heavy lift, but everyone expected that to be the case.

TMZ Studios

The more interesting tidbit here in this report is the notion that Marvel/Disney had apparently already made a decision in terms of where they wanted to go with Kang and Majors.

THR, citing sources, says Marvel was already making moves to minimize Kang's involvement in future movies -- and the apparent reason ... money. It sounds like Majors' appearance in 'Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania' wasn't a financial success (it definitely wasn't) and because of that ... they felt audiences just weren't in the mood for more Kang.

The movie made $476 million globally through its theatrical run ... but by superhero movie standards, that's pretty trash. So, on its face ... it sounds like Majors' fate was sealed.

TMZ Studios

Of course, Majors hasn't been sentenced yet ... and his team is trying to have his conviction thrown out. Either way though ... it almost feels like Marvel's closed the door on all this.

Dakota Johnson Hasn't Seen 'Madame Web' ... No Plans to See It (Yet)?!?

existential crisis averted
Magic Radio

Dakota Johnson's trying to avoid a sticky situation ... saying watching her movies could land her in an existential crisis -- which is why she says she hasn't seen her own new movie yet.

The actress made the stunning confession about "Madame Web" -- the superhero flick which she leads, and which is out in theaters now -- during an interview with Magic Radio ... admitting she's more likely to sneak out the back of the theater than stay for her own premiere, which she apparently did this week ahead of the official release of her flick.

It's a move she's clearly put to good use ... 'cause DJ says she still hasn't watched 'MW,' even now -- and it doesn't seem there are any plans to peep in the near future.

And, it's not just watching herself on the big screen that seems to be an issue for Johnson either ... 'cause she doesn't even seem interested in watching the flick at home -- adding she might watch the movie "someday" ... but sounding thoroughly disinterested.

Dakota says she's watched some of her movies, but admits she doesn't really like to view them -- saying she feels she could get hit with an existential crisis while watching one of her movies ... and comparing avoiding her films to "self-care."

It's not totally uncommon for stars not to watch their movies ... Constance Wu, Jesse Eisenberg, Helena Bonham Carter and Adam Driver are just a few of Hollywood's best and brightest who pass on watching their movies.

Gwyneth Paltrow's famous for giving interviews where she's basically admitted to having no idea what's happening in the Marvel Cinematic Universe ... despite appearing in seven Marvel films -- so it doesn't seem to be a requirement for giving great performances.


BTW ... it might be a good thing Johnson avoids watching her movies or googling herself -- 'cause 'Web' is getting absolutely blasted by both critics and audiences.

The movie -- following clairvoyant Cassandra Webb (Johnson) who tries to protect three women from a mysterious adversary -- has a 14% critics score and a 55% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes ... numbers well below the typical Marvel film.

TMZ Studios

The film is also expected to flop big time this weekend -- so, maybe it's best she stays away. In any case, Dakota isn't talking herself into a sequel -- her press run for this has been wild.

Sydney Sweeney, Dakota Johnson Put on Smoke Show at 'MW' Premiere ... Spidey Senses Tingling!!!

There's a new 'Spider-Man' movie out this week that's all about the ladies -- the premiere for which runs the risk of getting you stuck on our page ... 'cause they were oozing sex appeal.

Of course, we're talking about "Madame Web"-- which stars Dakota Johnson, Sydney Sweeney, Emma Roberts and other female actors who lead the charge in fighting bad guys on the big screen. In front of cameras, though ... they were also leaving a mark.

Sydney, specifically, looked gorgeous ... with a body-hugging dress that was web-themed, and which fit her like a glove. Yeah, she was kinda pouring out of this thing -- tastefully, that is.

Dakota herself also turned heads with her outfit -- she had on this mesh/see-through gown that made it seem like she was completely naked underneath ... even though, she really wasn't. On the contrary, she had on a skin-colored leotard beneath her main dress.

Still, she was definitely allowing people's imagination to run wild ... and on both counts -- between Sydney and Dakota -- they certainly made a splash for their superhero flick.

Other cast members showed off their sweet duds as well ... Celeste O'Connor, Isabela Merced, Tahar Rahim, Adam Scott, Zosia Mamet and more. Everyone was dressed to the nines.

And, while everyone looked stunning ... it bears repeating, SS and DJ stole the show here.

Anyway, "Madame Web" hits theaters starting Wednesday -- but the box office projections for the movie are looking a little grim from the outset ... word is, it very well may flop.

TMZ Studios

We'll see if Sweeney and co. can get asses in seats.

Sydney Sweeney y Dakota Johnson ofrecen un espectáculo en el estreno de "Madame Web"

Esta semana se estrena una nueva película de "Spider-Man" en la que todo gira en torno a las mujeres y cuyo estreno corre el riesgo de que te quedes enganchado a nuestra página... porque desvordanan sex appeal.

Nos referimos a "Madame Web", protagonizada por Dakota Johnson, Sydney Sweeney, Emma Roberts y otras actrices que luchan contra los malos en la gran pantalla. Delante de las cámaras, sin embargo... también dejaron huella.

Sydney, en concreto, estaba guapísima, con un vestido ceñido al cuerpo con temática web que le sentaba muy bien. Sí, ella estaba haciendo gala de su buen gusto.

Dakota también llamó la atención con su atuendo: llevaba un vestido de malla transparente que la hacía parecer que estaba completamente desnuda por debajo, aunque en realidad no lo estaba. Por el contrario, llevaba un leotardo de color piel debajo de su vestido principal.

Definitivamente estaba dejando volar la imaginación de la gente, y entre Sydney y Dakota sin duda capturaron la atención de los fans de los superhéroes.

Otros miembros del elenco también mostraron sus trajes, Celeste O'Connor, Isabela Merced, Tahar Rahim, Adam Scott, Zosia Mamet y muchos más. Todo el mundo estaba vestido de punta en blanco.

Y, mientras que todo el mundo se veía impresionante, vale la pena repetir que Sydney y Dakota se robaron el show.

"Madame Web" llega a los cines el miércoles, pero las proyecciones de taquilla para la película se ven un poco sombrías... hay cierto miedo a que pueda fracasar.

Kumail Nanjiani I Sought Therapy ... Over Bad 'Eternals' Reviews

Kumail Nanjiani says that movie critics were so harsh on his Marvel movie from a few years ago that he thought it'd be best to get on the couch and see a shrink about it ... yep.

The actor -- who played one of the leads in 2021's "Eternals" -- told the tale on the "Inside of You" podcast with Michael Rosenbaum ... where he explained that the work he put into it didn't match the reaction, at least in his eyes.

Inside of You with Michael Rosenbaum

KN said the reviews were terrible, and he was a little too aware of it -- going on to explain that he was reading each think piece about his movie, which apparently bothered him a lot.

He also notes that it was affecting his home life, adding ... "It was really hard, and that was when I thought it was unfair to me and unfair to [my wife] Emily, and I can’t approach my work this way anymore. Some s*** has to change, so I started counseling. I still talk to my therapist about that."

Even now, Kumail thinks he's still suffering from the experience -- saying ... "Emily says that I do have trauma from it. We actually just got dinner with somebody else from that movie and we were like, 'That was tough, wasn’t it?’ and he’s like ‘Yeah, that was really tough.'

TMZ Studios

With that said, he thinks the film is actually pretty solid -- and believes the reason it got crapped on at the time had more to do with the atmosphere and the zeitgeist at the time.

Kumail Nanjiani dice que buscó terapia por las malas críticas De "Eternals"

Kumail Nanjiani dice que los críticos de cine fueron tan duros con su película de Marvel de hace unos años que pensó que lo mejor sería ver a un psiquiatra.

El actor que interpretó a uno de los protagonistas de "Eternals" de 2021, contó la historia en el pódcast "Inside of You" con Michael Rosenbaum, donde explicó que el trabajo que puso en el filme no se condice con la reacción de la gente.

un gran trauma
Inside of You with Michael Rosenbaum

Kumai dijo que las críticas eran terribles y él era demasiado consciente de ello, pasando a explicar que estaba leyendo cada artículo de opinión acerca de su película, lo que al parecer lo molestó mucho.

También señala que estaba afectando a su vida familiar, añadiendo: "Fue muy duro, y fue entonces cuando pensé que era injusto para mí y para Emily [(su mujer), y que ya no podía enfocar mi trabajo de esta manera. Algunas cosas tienen que cambiar, así que empecé a ir a terapia. Todavía hablo con mi terapeuta sobre esto".

Incluso ahora, Kumail cree que todavía está sufriendo por la experiencia, diciendo: "Emily dice que sí tengo un trauma por ello. De hecho, acabamos de cenar con otra persona involucrada en esa película y estábamos como, "Eso fue duro, ¿no?" Y él dijo: "Sí, eso fue muy duro".

Dicho esto, Lumail cree que la película es en realidad bastante sólida y cree que la razón por la que fue un fracaso en su momento tenía más que ver con el ambiente y el espíritu de la época.

A crew member fell to his death at a well-known movie studio in Los Angeles -- and it was while preparing for a show for none other than Marvel ... TMZ has confirmed.

Law enforcement sources tell us first responders were dispatched to Radford Studio Center in Studio City, CA Tuesday -- just outside of central L.A. -- in response to an apparent accident on a set there.
