Actor Jonathan Majors, who plays Kang the Conqueror in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is facing domestic violence charges at a trial beginning on November 29.
Marvel executives are considering recasting Majors or pivoting away from featuring his character in upcoming projects.
Majors was set to be featured in various upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe titles, including a fifth Avengers movie.
The studio is growing increasingly nervous as Majors heads to trial, and one plan discussed is to focus on a different antagonist such as Dr. Doom.
Majors could be sentenced up to a year in jail if found guilty.
Disney has pulled Majors' upcoming movie, Magazine Dreams, from its schedule.
Despite discussions at a Marvel retreat, the executive producer of Loki stated that there were no talks about dropping Majors from the current season of the show.
Majors was arrested in March after an alleged domestic dispute, but his lawyer maintains his innocence.
