Harry Styles was always our hero, but now he gets to become a Marvel superhero, too! The "Watermelon Sugar" singer has already debuted as the God of Love, Eros, who will also be known as StarFox on the movie franchise. 

If you just can not sit through the credit rolls, we advise you to wait out the one that will feature once you finish watching Eternals because it will literally have you swooning! Harry Styles has always been looking for a big heroic role for the former one Direction singer, and now seeing him as a superhero is definitely driving up the hopes of many. 

The "What Makes You Beautiful" singer has finally made his much-anticipated debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the timing could not be more perfect. While fans had been circulating the rumors of Styles getting to play Eros for a long time now, seeing the singer, aged 27, actually feature in the end credits scenes is the stuff of dreams. Of course, Harry Styles, whom now we could refer to as God of Love, commands the screen with utter grace and shows his acting prowess in his little screen time. 

The end credits scenes of Eternals feature two big show-stopping moments bound to make fams restless. The scenes begin off with the Eternals just after they have managed to evade the celestial Tiamut. Now that the planet is safe, Thena ( Angelina Jolie ), Makkari ( Lauren Ridloff ), and Druig ( Barry Keoghan ) plan to find Eternals on other planets. They have decided to let the immortal race scattered over the galactic world know the plans of Arishem. 

The Eternals, Sersi ( Gemma Chan ), Kingo ( Kumail Nanjiani ), and Sprite ( Lia McHugh ) are missing, and the former trio is in hopes of finding them. But, they do not get to hear from them soon, as they are captured by Arishem the Judge, the formidable leader of the Celestials.

Unaware, Thena, Makkari, and Druig board a spaceship and take off to find other Eternals but do not get much success. As they head back to Earth to finish their search for the missing trio, the three are greeted by an unexpected shipmate. The visitor is Pip the Troll. He boards the ship and introduces himself, and continues saying that he has an announcement to make. 

Pip, hence, introduces the "royal prince of Titan," who also happens to be The StarFox, and is named after the God of Love, Eros. Further, he also happens to be the brother of Thanos and now might be in the midst of his enemies, the Eternals, who have sworn to save the planet. Additionally, they could become his enemies if he follows Thanos. 

Cue: walks in Harry Styles, the Starfox, who introduces himself to the assembled entourage of Eternals, and drops the shocking bomb when he tells them that he is an Eternal, too. 

Obviously, Harry Styles brings in all the charisma and charm of Eros, who is the God of Love in Greek mythology. Hence, true to his name, he starts flirting with Thena. Eros remarks, "You are as beautiful as legends say," to Thena and then misses no beat as he gets to point relaying that the three missing Eternals are actually in grave danger. 

He says, "Your friends are in big trouble." "And we know how to find them," Eros assures Thena, Druig, and Makkari. Eros also possesses the magic sphere that had previously enabled Ajak, the spiritual guide of the Eternals played by Salma Hayek, and Sersei used to talk to the Celestial leader, Arishem. Thus, using the sphere, he reveals that Sersi, Kingo, and Sprite are in need of some aid and Eros is confident regarding where the trio could be.

To be kept in mind, while Eros is actually the brother of Thanos, the one all-powerful villain many previous Marvel superheroes had died fighting and who had wiped off half of the human population with a snap of his fingers, Eros is not the villain. As he is not the bad guy here, he is actually quite open to helping the Eternals. In the original Marvel comic books, Eros had joined hands with the Avengers. 

Now in the Eternals end credits scenes, Eros is seen donning a complete superhero suit to match that of the other Eternals. The suit comes with a silver and gold plating, featuring a gold V in the middle part of the torso and red metallic sleeves. As you can expect, the "Live While We're Young" singer cuts a dashing figure in the superhero suit and fits in the role just perfectly. 

Apart from the famed casting of Harry Styles as a Marvel Superhero, a second end credits scene has also become the talk of the town. This one scene features the Game of Thrones star Kit Harington, who plays Dane Whitman. The scene shows the hero in a study standing in front of an old chest that bears his family crest. 

Most probably, he is pondering opening the crest and wondering if he should take after Sersi's advice and meet his uncle. Dane opens the chest and lays the powerful Ebony Blade, but as he extends his hand to touch it, a voice fills the space asking Dane if he is ready, and cuts to a blank screen. 

If you are wondering, forged by Merlin and Sir Percy from the Starstone meteorite, the Ebony Blade is a magical blade. The sword is swung by the Black Knight and comes with the power of evading the death of the wielder, cutting through any object and also diverting magic. And because the Eternals featured just a bit too many Black Knight references, there is a slight hint that we may get to see Kit Harington starring in the Black Knight movie in the near future. 

Originally, the Black Knight has come to the aid of the Avengers, over and over again, in the comic book stories. Nevertheless, the superheroes were always critical of his presence. However, the Black Knight was able to garner the trust of the Avengers once he aided them to wield a conquest against Kang the Conqueror.

With such hefty cliffhangers balancing in the interim, the immortal race of Eternals is bound to make a comeback on the screens soon again. Wishing for Harry Styles to command the Eternals screens once again but with a major plotline destined for him!
