Harry Styles to join Marvel Cinematic Universe, to portray Thanos’ brother Eros in future Marvel films

Reports of musician-turned-actor Harry Styles joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Eros is the reason for his fans’ meltdown. According to reports by Variety, the announcement was made during the premiere of MCU’s Eternals that Styles would portray Thanos’ brother Eros in future Marvel films. In contrast to Thanos’ power-hungry inclinations, Eros is characterized as “carefree” and “womanising.”

Grammy winner’s reported casting in “future Marvel pictures” comes ahead of the November 5 release of “Eternals” in US. Directed by Oscar winner Chloé Zhao, Eternals stars Angelina Jolie, Kumail Nanjiani, Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, and Kit Harington, among others.

Character of Eros is most likely inspired by the eponymous Greek deity of love and sex (the counterpart to Roman god Cupid). Since the word “eros” is the etymological origin of words like “erotic,” it is only fair that the sexy “Watermelon Sugar” vocalist plays the part.

Eternals follows story of a race of eternal creatures with extraordinary abilities that live covertly on Earth. However, when terrifying monsters known as the Deviants, long believed extinct, suddenly reappear, the Eternals are compelled to reassemble in order to protect mankind once again.
