Jonathan Majors‘ role in “Loki” Season 2 wasn’t on the chopping block amid the actor’s assault allegations, according to Disney+ series executive producer Kevin Wright.

Majors was arrested in March on charges of assault, strangulation, and harassment. The “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” star was later dropped by his publicist and was removed from a series of upcoming projects. Majors is awaiting trial while his accuser has been granted a restraining order. Reports of Majors having alleged violent outbursts on sets have also been made public.

The actor can now be seen in “Loki” Season 2, debuting on Disney+ October 5, reprising the roles of He Who Remains and Victor Timely, both variants of Kang the Conqueror whom Majors portrayed in “Quantumania.” The inclusion of Majors in “Loki” amid the allegations prove that Kang has not been recast yet, or if the Phase 6 lead villain will be at all.

“I know as much as you do at the moment,” “Loki” EP Wright told Variety about Majors’ impending trial. “It felt hasty to do anything without knowing how all of this plays out.”

Wright added that there was no “additional photography” on “Loki” Season 2 to cut Majors or recast the character.

“This is maybe — not maybe — this is the first Marvel series to never have any additional photography,” Wright said. “The story that is onscreen is the story we set out to make. We went out there with a very specific idea of what we wanted this to be, and we found a way to tell it in that production period. It’s very much what’s onscreen on Disney+.”

As of print, Majors is still set to play Kang in several upcoming films, including “Avengers: Secret Wars” and “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.”

While Majors has not spoken publicly about the allegations, his criminal defense attorney Priya Chaudhry issued a statement in March: “Jonathan Majors is completely innocent and is provably the victim of an altercation with a woman he knows. (…) All the evidence proves that Mr. Majors is entirely innocent and did not assault her whatsoever. Unfortunately, this incident came about because this woman was having an emotional crisis, for which she was taken to a hospital yesterday. The NYPD is required to make an arrest in these situations, and this is the only reason Mr. Majors was arrested. We expect these charges to be dropped soon.”
