Harry Styles‘ return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe following his debut in Eternals last year has been teased by Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios.
Styles appeared as Eros – also known as Starfox – the brother of Thanos in a post-credits Eternals scene which featured him alongside Pip, a troll-like CGI character voiced by Patton Oswalt.
While appearing at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Feige indicated that both characters would be making their return to the MCU, though stopped short of revealing what projects they might be appearing in.
“The adventures of Eros and Pip is something that is very exciting for us,” Feige said during an interview with MTV News, in which he also responded to Ryan Gosling’s call to play Ghost Rider.
“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.”
