Harry Styles MCU Return as Starfox/Eros Teased by Eternals Producer
After briefly appearing in a post-credits scene in Eternals, Harry Styles hasn’t appeared in any Marvel Studios project since. However, that doesn’t mean his time in the MCU is done.
Speaking to Deadline during their Crew Call podcast, Marvel Studios VP of Production & Development Nate Moore was asked about Styles and his future going forward. While Moore didn’t give away too much, he did say that they didn’t cast Styles simply to show up at the end of one film.
“We didn’t cast Harry for a tag,” said Moore. “[There are] more stories to be told with that character. He has an interesting connection with Thanos; they’re half-brothers and share the same father. He’s a complicated character, but a really fun character.”
During the post-credits scene in Eternals, Eros — played by Harry Styles — and his partner, Pip, showed up on the Eternals ship, offering their assistance. Eros’ introduction into the MCU is a big deal, as he’s not only another Eternal but also the brother of Thanos, the Mad Titan that acted as the overarching bad guy for the first decade of MCU films.
While the future of the Eternals group is currently unknown, Eros does play a big part in certain Marvel Comics runs. The character is also known as Starfox and has joined forces with the likes of Captain Marvel in the past, as well as having aided the Avengers throughout certain battles.
