Harry Styles will return to Marvel Cinematic Universe, ‘Eternals’ producer assures
Harry Styles fans can expect to see more of him as Starfox, as a Marvel executive hinted at the future of Styles’ character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Marvel producer Nate Moore teased that there are “more stories to be told” with Styles’ Starfox when he guested at Deadline’s “Crew Call” podcast last Monday, Jan. 9. He was asked by host Anthony D’Alessandro whether fans could see more of Styles in future Marvel projects or his appearance in the 2021 movie “Eternals” was just a “stunt.”
“We certainly didn’t cast Harry for a tag,” Moore answered, laughing.
Moore also described Starfox as “a character maybe I have too much affection for” and revealed that “Eternals” director Chloé Zhao pushed for Styles to get the role.
“Chloé is a giant Harry Styles fan… I’d always pitch, like, ‘Eros, he’s really cool.’ And she’s like, ‘It’s Harry Styles’ and I was like, ‘Are you sure?’ And she was obsessed and chased him down and got him into the movie,” he recalled.
“But there are more stories to be told with that character. He’s fascinating. He has a really interesting connection with Thanos—they’re half-brothers, they share the same father,” Moore added.
Moore further described Starfox as a “complicated” but “fun” character with an “interesting power set.”
“Having met Harry Styles, he is as charming as you think you want him to be. And I think there’s no limit to how popular that character’s gonna be once we get to bring him back,” he told D’Alessandro.
Following his appearance in “Eternals,” Styles appeared in the movies “Don’t Worry Darling,” directed by his now-ex-girlfriend Olivia Wilde, and romantic drama film “My Policeman.” /ra
