Following the premiere of Eternals last autumn, it was leaked that Harry Styles made his MCU debut in the Marvel movie’s end credits scene as Eros aka Starfox. The brother of Thanos, a fellow Eternal, shared the moment with Angelina Jolie as he boarded her ship with Pip the Troll, voiced by Patton Oswalt.
Marvel and One Direction fans went wild when they finally saw the scene, anticipating his return in future MCU movies.
Following the film’s release, Giant Freakin Robot reported that Styles had signed on for five Marvel films to play the comic book womanising adventurer.
Their insider said at the time: “Harry Styles is set to become a major part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Audiences should expect to see a lot more of him.”
Meanwhile, Feige recently confirmed Styles’ Eros is very much a part of the MCU’s future plans.
The Marvel boss told MTV News: “Yes. The adventures of Eros and Pip is something that is very exciting for us.”
In the meantime, the One Direction star has two movies premiering in September with Don’t Worry Darling at Venice and My Policeman at Toronto.
