It’s Harry Styles’ world, and we’re just living in it! Harry Styles has joined the MCU, Marvel Cinematic Universe, as Thanos’ Brother, Eros, also known as Starfox, a God of love and sex. 

He has made his first MCU appearance in the post-credits scenes of Eternals, the latest Marvel movie, which hit theaters on November 5th of this year. It has also been reported that Styles has signed a five-movie contract with Marvel, and according to Faith McKay, a writer for Giant Freakin Robot, “A solo project for Starfox is a possibility on the table.” 

Styles’ addition to the MCU is not much of a surprise to many since he has been exploring beyond the music industry by breaking into acting the last couple of years, but his movie roles continue to blow away his fans as they are quite big. Valeria Nicole Day, a Twitter user, has tweeted, “If Harry Styles is in The Eternals that means that this would be his second movie… Imagine being able to say that you started your acting career with a movie directed by Christopher Nolan and that the second time you appeared in a movie was in an Eternal movie… Only Harry Styles.” As he continues to break into acting and starring in movies directed by well-known and successful directors, Harry Styles is proving that he is more than just a pop star and is quickly becoming one of Hollywood’s most successful actors. In 2017, he was cast in Dunkirk, and in 2019, he turned down the role of Prince Eric for the live-action film, The Little Mermaid. Harry Styles has also finished filming two other movies in which he plays the lead male act, Don’t Worry Darling and My Policeman. These two highly-anticipated films are set to hit theaters in the fall of 2022!

With Harry Styles taking over the music, fashion, and film industry, many fans have begun to question if there is anything he can’t do. Many have even argued that Harry is extremely well-loved, resulting in his roles matching his personality quite well. Jannah 1989 tv, a Twitter user, has tweeted, “Starfox is a loving, charming and carefree person who has the ability to physically control people’s emotions.” They really said Harry Styles but MCU edition! 

“I never knew Harry joining the MCU was something I needed! I love Harry and Marvel, so I am very excited for all these upcoming projects,” says an anonymous sophomore. 

All in all, Harry Styles’ new role in the MCU has excited and increased his fan base as they will now be receiving more content from him.
