Rise up, Directioners! Harry Styles’ beloved character Eros was confirmed to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as it enters the Multiverse Saga.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige teased Styles’ comeback during an interview at San Diego Comic-Con 2022 on July 24. Feige spilled little detail, but the adventure of Eros and his companion Pip is said to be an exciting ride.
Interviewed by Josh Horowitz from MTV News, Feige said that we would soon find Eros and Pip living in the “cosmic” part of the cinematic universe. While the hint suggests Eros’ extraterrestrial role in Marvel’s lineup of film projects, Feige did not specify which movie we will encounter Styles’ character.
“Yes, the adventures of Eros and Pip is something that is very exciting for us,” said Feige. “You’re talking about Ghost Rider, we’ve got Blade, we’ve got Doctor Strange with the supernatural angles, we’ve got the street-level with our announcement of Daredevil, and of course, Spidey going into the street-level heroes–and cosmic, and that’s where our friends Eros and Pip live.”
Eros is also known as Starfox and is said to be the prince of Titan and a brother of Thanos.
Styles made his debut as Eros in the post-credits scene of the 2021 film Eternals where he was introduced by his troll friend Pip to Druig, Makkari, and Thena.
Aside from Eros, Styles has also played a supporting role for the 2017 film Dunkirk and will soon appear in an upcoming psychological movie Don’t Worry Darling premiering in September, and My Policeman releasing in October.
