“We’re a country that was built on ‘everyone is innocent until proven guilty,’” Mackie said.
“That’s one of the staples of this country. Nothing has been proven about this dude. Nothing. So everyone is innocent until proven guilty. That’s all I can say. It’s crazy where we are as a society. But as a country, everyone is innocent until proven guilty.”
Mackie’s remarks make him the first major actor in the MCU to discuss the legal situation surrounding the Kang actor, who was charged with assault, attempted assault, harassment and aggravated harassment following a dispute with a 30-year-old woman in New York City.
Majors has since denied the abuse allegations and, in the months following his March arrest, has been dropped by his talent manager, his public relations firm and the U.S. Army, which featured him in ads.
It’s unclear how the arrest has impacted “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty,” which is scheduled to be released in 2026.
