“There are more stories to be told”: MCU Boss Confirms Harry Styles Return in Eternals 2, Says Director Chloé Zhao Is “Obsessed” With Him

Eternals brought in the new age of people disliking Marvel. With a cameo by Harry Styles and Chloé Zhao helming as director, the chaos was not entertaining for the people. The abrupt ending, however, may redeem the movie.

After introducing Harry Styles as Starfox, the brother of Thanos, the movie came to a close for future sequels to address. According to Nate Moore, director Chloé Zhao is “obsessed” with Harry Styles, and we may soon get a sequel to Marvel’s Eternals.

Marvel's Eternals was not the best that the studio had to offer.

Eternals 2 In Production Thanks To Harry Styles?

Boasting an impressive star cast of Richard Madden, Angelina Jolie, Kit Harrington, Salma Hayek, Gemma Chan, and more, Eternals’ bar was set too high by the people. Standing at a meager 47% on Rotten Tomatoes, the movie was hurled at by fans and critics alike.

With many questions remaining unanswered, director Chloé Zhao would have been already busy planning the sequels to the movie. Featuring Harry Styles as Eros/Starfox, the brother of Thanos, Marvel may have given the people a reconnecting point. According to reports, that is not the only reason Marvel brought in Harry Styles.

Talking on Deadline’s Crew Call Podcast, Nate Moore opened up about Eternals 2 and the “obsession” with Harry Styles that may have led to a sequel. With people thinking Harry Styles had nothing but a fancy cameo, Nate Moore clarified that he was much more than that.

“No, we certainly didn’t cast Harry for a tag. I mean, again– And a character [that] maybe I have too much affection for, ’cause he’s had some problematic runs in publishing, but…”

Moore further continued how the director had an obsession with the British singer.

Chloé [Zhao] is a giant Harry Styles fan and… 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.”

With that being said, the chances of Eternals 2 being created increase greatly. The Don’t Worry Darling actor will be in the movie without a doubt, and Kit Harrington is also rumored to join the cast.

In the above-mentioned talk, producer Nate Moore further stated that the character of Eros/Starfox is a very unique character. Being a half-brother to Thanos and sharing the same father, Eros is also one of the Titans. Here’s what Nate Moore had to say about Starfox and a potential sequel to Eternals.

“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 and share the same father. He has an interesting power set. He’s a complicated character, but a really fun character. And I think… having met Harry Styles, he is as charming as you want him to be. And I think there’s no limit to how good that character’s going to be once we get to bring him back.”

Although not the best that Marvel had to offer, Eternals were indeed essential to the storyline of the lore. It is yet unconfirmed whether an Eternals 2 is waiting on the horizon as of now.

Marvel’s Eternals is available for streaming on Disney+.
