Harry Styles may be one of the biggest pop stars in the world, but he’s also pursuing a career in Hollywood. After trying his acting chops in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk, the 27-year-old has entered the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a superhero called Starfox. The One Director singer has finally addressed his cameo in the Eternals end credits scene.

The moment in question sees Thena, Makkari and Druig visited by Thanos’ brother Eros, played by Styles.

The Marvel character, also known as Starfox, arrives aboard the Eternals’ ship with his sidekick Pip the Troll.

After complementing Angelina Jolie’s Thena on her beauty, he offers them some help, before the clip ends.

Speaking with Dazed, the 27-year-old said of his cameo: “I’m only in right at the very end.”

Styles added humbly: “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.”

He may not have shared much else, but the Eternals director Chloé Zhao has also addressed the pop star’s role as Starfox.

Speaking with Deadline, the Oscar winner said: “Harry as Eros was very much a package deal for me.”

Chloé continued: “I pitched the idea of Pip the Troll [voiced by Patton Oswald in Eternals] and Eros to Kevin [Feige, Marvel boss] a while back.

“And I love the idea of exploring an Eternal who is beyond Titan and who may have influenced Thanos throughout the years the same way Eternals influenced us, earthlings.”

As for casting Styles in the role, it turns out this was her plan for him all along.

She said: “And then, it wasn’t like I suggested Eros, and let’s go find actors. I kept tabs on Harry since Dunkirk, I thought he was very interesting.”

Chloé added: “After meeting him I realised he is that character—the same way I cast the rest of my cast. There’s so much of Eros in him.

“For me, if he says yes, and Kevin says yes, then it’s a go. And I’m very happy they both did.”

Eternals 2 is yet to be green-lit, but given the end credits tease we’d expect Styles’ Starfox to be turning up in a few Marvel projects in the coming future.

Eternals is out now, miniseries Hawkeye hits Disney+ on November 24 and Spider-Man: Now Way Home lands in UK cinemas on December 15, 2021.
