A Pierce of Marvel Studios secret casting has been revealed in Eternals post credit SPOILERS. The premiere of Eternals yesterday saw someone take online to reveal a major SPOILER from the post credit scene of the movie. A new character is introduced, as well as of course the actor playing them. It goes without saying that this post contains SPOILERS, so I will give fair warning before we get there. In fact, I’d say the only reason I am covering this is because today, you’ll find this, likely not spoiler tagged in a number of outlets.
I’d say, if it was I who had just watched Eternals, I’d have kept this little nugget a secret until the fans get to see it in a few weeks time.
Therefore, be warned ye of SPOILERS below.
Ok, here it is. The below social media post has been doing the rounds since the premiere and as far as I am led to believe, this is true.
Former member of One Direction and teen heart-throb Harry Styles is playing Eros, the brother of Thanos.
Big reveal from #TheEternals premiere — Harry Styles has joined the MCU as Eros, brother of Thanos.

Nice SPOILER tags there BTW. It seems Styles only appears for the first time in the post credit scene. Therefore, a tease for the future rather than having a secret role in the events of Eternals. I’m sure there are some Styles fans absolutely just dying today. However I’m old enough to remember when ‘wee Harry’ turned up to audition on X Factor for the first time. I recall he wasn’t actually good enough to go through on his own. I guess I’m therefore in no way excited by a pop star appearing in the MCU. Who cares? Though, it may be a big deal to some.
I guess what’s more important to me is the fact they are actually going to get to Eros, and perhaps explore him and Thanos’ origin at some point?
What do you think of these Eternals post credit spoilers being revealed? Thoughts on the secret casting of Harry styles as Eros? Thoughts below.
