In last year’s Eternals, we finally got Harry Styles’ introduction into the MCU as Eros, brother of Thanos. Well, according to a UK tabloid, the superstar may return in more projects moving forward.
According to The Sun, Harry Styles has signed a multi-picture deal to return as the eternal, that would have him returning for up to five movies. The site says if his screen adventures prove box-office successes, his pay package with profit bonuses could be as much as $100 million.
Again, with all rumors/reports from a tabloid, The Sun is a British tabloid and most tabloids are known for news stories that are over-exaggerated, sensationalized, or falsified for the sake of grabbing readers’ attention and generating higher profit. We have seen on numerous occasions rumors like this happening, most recently the rumor that Millie Bobby Brown had a “secret meeting” with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, about joining the Star Wars universe. That said, there have been numerous occasions where the tabloids have put out accurate reports. This should be taken with a massive grain of salt.
Let’s say the report is true, Last weekend at San Diego Comic-Con Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige revealed Harry Styles will return as Eros. In a conversation with MTV News at the San Diego Comic-Con, Kevin revealed, “The adventures of Eros and Pip (voiced by Patton Oswalt) is something that is very exciting for us,” he added, “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.”
Again there is no confirmation from Marvel Studios that this report is true. One tall tell sign will be the Marvel Studios panel at Disney’s D23 Expo in September. If the studio indeed signed him to a deal, announcing his return to the thousands of fans that’ll be in attendance would blow the roof off the Anaheim Convention Center.
