The ex-one direction star's involvement with the famously secretive Marvel Studio was revealed last month by reporters attending the LA premiere of Eternals.
Harry Styles has finally broken the silence over his role in the latest Marvel film, Eternals.
The 27-year-old took on the role of Eros, the brother of Marvel's last big bad Thanos. Styles has kept his lips sealed about his involvement in the project since his appearance was first rumoured in 2019.
"I'm only in right at the very end," the singer said while speaking with Dazed. "But who didn't grow up wanting to be a superhero, you know? It was a great experience and I'm so grateful to have gotten to work with Chloé."
The Grammy award-winning singer appears briefly in the film's post-credit scenes. Given Eros' importance in the comic - where he also goes by the name Starfox - it is all but certain that Style's will feature more prominently in one of the company's future features.
"I kept tabs on Harry since Dunkirk, I thought he was very interesting," director Chloé Zhao said in an interview with Deadline. "After meeting him I realised he is that character – the same way I cast the rest of my cast."
This isn't the first time Harry Styles appeared on the silver screen, making his cinematic debut in Christopher Nolan's 2017 war epic Dunkirk. The ex-one direction star is also set to star in Olivia Wilde's upcoming project Don't Worry Darling alongside Florence Pugh.
