Following the release of new Marvel film Eternals, starring the likes of Angelina Jolie, Kumail Nanjiani, Gemma Chan and Kit Harington, fans couldn’t contain their excitement over another surprise addition to the MCU.
At the end of the film, Harry Styles makes an appearance as Eros, joining Angelina’s character Thena, Lauren Ridloff’s Makkari and Barry Keoghan’s Druig in a brief post-credits scene.
In the Marvel comics, Eros is the brother of Thanos, who was portrayed by Josh Brolin in the Infinity Saga films as the Mad Titan snapped half of the universe out of existence.
While Harry’s inclusion in the MCU was kept tightly under wraps until the blockbuster’s launch, the singer now has his very own Eternals poster to welcome him into the fold.
A post shared by the Eternals Twitter account revealing the poster read: ‘Meet the Royal Prince of Titan, brother of Thanos, the Knave of Hearts, defeater of Black Roger, the great adventurer, Starfox.’
Underneath, the poster for the new character of Eros was shown, featuring the former One Direction member with a serious look on his face.
Several fans shared their admiration for Harry’s official poster, expressing their excitement over seeing more of Eros in the MCU.
‘Very excited to see what they do with Starfox within the MCU! Eros is here!!! Congrats Harry Styles,’ one person tweeted.
‘People truly don’t realize how perfect this casting is,’ another remarked.
At first glance, Harry’s character looks absolutely nothing like his purple sibling, who was more similar in stature to the Hulk.
Nonetheless, this may be fitting considering their backstory in the Marvel comics.
In the original source material, Eros is a superhero known as Starfox.
While he is the brother of Thanos, the pair do not see eye to eye, with Eros boasting the power to psychically control other people’s emotions.
Eros, who is a member of the Eternals, is the youngest son of A’lars and Sui-San, growing up as a carefree and womanising individual.
While Thanos has the same parents, in the comics, the villain carries the Deviants gene, which is why he resembles the cousin race to the Eternals more than his relatives.
