Chloé Zhao’s Eternals has been in theatres for over a week now. With an all-star cast and a story that pushed Marvel storytelling to new heights, the movie impacted both the MCU itself and its fanbase when it premiered. Even though the main film focused on an Eternal team up to stop the birth of a new Celestial, the post-credits scenes opened up a world of possibilities for future MCU stories.
One of these allowed Kit Harington to become the Black Knight, hinting at Mahershala Ali’s Blade appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, Harry Styles’ Marvel debut as the intergalactic playboy Eros, better known as Starfox, has been the talk of the town for the past few weeks. Now that Eternals has been released, Styles has spoken about his role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the first time.
Marvel Studios’ Eternals star Harry Styles was interviewed by Dazed Digital about his new role as Eros/Starfox. However, even though Styles admitted that he was only in the film for a brief period, he expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to work with director Chloé Zhao.
“I’m only in right at the very end. But who didn’t grow up wanting to be a superhero, you know? It was a great experience and I’m so grateful to have gotten to work with Chloé.”
For the past few months, rumours had been swirling about Harry Styles’ Marvel role, but there were no indications that he would be playing a character as big as Starfox. Since Starfox’s older brother is the Mad Titan Thanos, it is safe to assume he will play an essential role in the future of MCU Cosmic.
Even after a successful singing career, Styles seems excited to take on this role, which is his biggest yet in a film. In Hollywood, becoming an MCU star has become a rite of passage for actors of all experience levels, but it appears that Styles has dreamed of this opportunity for a long time. The big question now is, where will Harry Styles’ Starfox appear in future films?
In light of MCU Cosmic’s role in the MCU’s narrative and the looming presence of Thanos, Eros has a wide variety of stories to choose from in the future. As long as he can handle whatever is thrown at him, Styles is more than capable of handling whatever comes his way.
