Harry Styles joined the MCU as Eros, the brother of Infinity Saga villain Thanos.
Fans of Styles probably haven’t stopped thinking about the singer’s MCU debut in “Eternals,” but the 2021 film was poorly received overall and it’s possible that the general audience forgot about his cameo.
In the end-credits scene, Eros and Pip the Troll (voiced by Patton Oswalt) enter the spaceship known as the Domo and greet three Eternals: Thena (Angelina Jolie), Makkari (Lauren Ridloff), and Druig (Barry Keoghan).
Pip then refers to Styles’ character as the “Royal Prince of Titan, brother of Thanos, the Knave of Hearts, defeater of Black Roger, the great adventurer, Starfox.”
Then Eros says to the immortals: “Your friends are in big trouble. And we know where to find them.”
With the Infinity Saga in the rearview and Marvel diving fully into multiverse storytelling, it’s unclear how Thanos’ hot brother fits into the future of the MCU.
Plus, in the two years since “Eternals” was released, a sequel or spin-off hasn’t been announced.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige was asked about Styles’ involvement in the MCU while speaking with MTV News at San Diego Comic-Con in 2022.
“The adventures of Eros and Pip is something that is very exciting for us,” he said. “You’re talking about Ghost Rider, we’ve got Blade, we’ve got Doctor Strange with the supernatural angles, we’ve got the street level with our announcement of Daredevil and of course, [Spider-Man], and cosmic, and that’s where our friends Eros and Pip live.”
