Since One Direction broke up, Harry Styles has been pursuing a Hollywood acting career alongside his own solo music ventures. After debuting as a soldier in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk, the 27-year-old is next set to star opposite Florence Pugh in Don’t Worry Darling before another upcoming movie called My Policeman. But following an Eternals press screening in Los Angeles last month, it was leaked that Harry has been cast as a Marvel superhero in the MCU.

Harry features in one of the end credits scenes for Eternals, which is released on Friday in cinemas.

The singer plays Thanos’ brother Eros aka Starfox and unlike his Mad Titan brother, he’s more of a womanising adventurer.

Marvel Studios certainly wouldn’t have teased such a big star unless they’re planning on him making a big impact in the MCU going forwards.

Well according to Giant Freakin Robot’s trust and proven insider sources, Harry has signed a deal for five Marvel movies playing Starfox.

According to the outlet: “Harry Styles is set to become a major part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Audiences should expect to see a lot more of him.

“He’s been talking to Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel, who promised big things for the actor’s future. A solo project for Starfox is a possibility on the table.”

By the sounds of it, Marvel are once again using their end credits scenes to set up something big just like Samuel L Jackson’s Nick Fury forming the Avengers.

They added: “It sounds like Harry Styles is being set up for a massive future in their cinematic universe, something comparable to Nick Fury’s many appearances.”

Spider-Man: No Way Home – official teaser trailer

The outlet was unable to confirm which MCU movies Harry’s Starfox will feature in although they said Eternals 2 is a possibility.

Additionally, it makes sense for Thanos’ brother to feature across the MCU while the universe recovers from the Mad Titan’s decimation in Avengers Infinity War.

In Marvel Comics, Thanos and Starfox have had the occasional punch up, so maybe this will feature in some flashbacks or a prequel.

Or perhaps even another variant of the Mad Titan will show up given that the MCU is about to open up the Multiverse of Madness?

Eternals hasn’t even released yet but is already the worst received MCU Marvel movie to date by critics.

With just 55 per cent positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, the blockbuster marks the first rotten green splat for the franchise after 26 films.

Following Eternals’ release on November 5 is Spider-Man No Way Home on December 17, 2021.

While MCU Disney+ show Hawkeye, which is a Christmas-themed miniseries starring Jeremy Renner’s archer, debuts on the streaming service from November 24.
