Harry Styles has joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Or rather, Marvel has joined the Harry Styles Cinematic Universe as the singer continues to build up his acting résumé.
After more than a year of industry rumblings and rampant fan theories, a post-credits scene at the world premiere screening of Chloé Zhao’s “Eternals” in Hollywood confirmed Monday that Styles has become a Marvel superhero as Eros, brother of Thanos.
Thanos is, of course, Josh Brolin’s omnipotent supervillain who “snaps” half the world’s population into oblivion at the climactic conclusion of 2018’s “Avengers: Infinity War.”
In the Marvel comics, Eros — also known as Starfox — is positioned as an anti-Thanos figure, known for his carefree personality and romantic charm. Eros, who, like Styles, 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.
During the major post-credits reveal Monday night, audience members shrieked upon seeing Styles’ face on the big screen at the Dolby Theatre. Variety film reporter Matt Donnelly, who attended the screening, was the first to break the news of Styles’ MCU debut via Twitter that evening.
