Harry is set to play Thanos' brother Eros — also known as Starfox.
He is s positioned as an anti-Thanos figure, known for his carefree personality and romantic charm. Eros possesses psychic powers capable of manipulating people’s emotions, is also a member of the Eternals, a coalition of cosmic beings tasked with preventing the demise of humanity.
This isn't Styles' first move in to the film industry, in fact, over the pasgt few years he has made quite the name for himself.
The former One Direction member launched his acting career in 2017 with Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk.” He’s set to star in partner Olivia Wilde’s film, “Don’t Worry Darling,” opposite Oscar nominee Florence Pugh and “Eternals” cast mate Gemma Chan. On top of that, in the pipeline for Styles is Michael Grandage’s “My Policeman,” co-starring Emmy-winning “Crown” actor Emma Corrin.
There has been a mixed reaction on line to the news of Harry joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe; fans of the singer are estatic however MCU fans are mainly annoyed over the fact that the after-credits scene has been somewhat spoiled weeks before the release of the film.
It was rumoured back in 2020 Harry would appear in an MCU film, after a Netflix writer let slip the singer would star in a Marvel movie “no one knows he’s in.”
