- Kevin Feige hints at Harry Styles’ potential return to the MCU as Starfox/Eros when the right time comes.
- Feige suggests that Eros and Pip could introduce other supernatural characters like Ghost Rider in the future.
- Patton Oswalt, who portrays Pip, expresses enthusiasm for a potential Eros and Pip movie with Styles, despite not hearing any news about their return.
Marvel’s Kevin Feige recently discussed the possible return of Harry Styles to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Starfox/Eros after his cameo in the post-credits scene of Eternals. Since that appearance in 2021, there has not been much information about the future of the Eternals franchise or if Styles’ character will make any further appearances. Feige mentioned both parties are excited and waiting for the right time for a return.
At the red carpet premiere of The Marvels, Feige spoke to ET about Styles’ Marvel comeback, stating, “He’s excited. We’re excited. We will see. You introduce a lot of new characters in a lot of movies and a lot of tags. Where do the tag folk reappear? That’s a good question.”
Directed by Chloé Zhao and released in 2021, Eternals featured an ensemble cast including Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Kit Harington, and others. The film follows the story of the Eternals, a race of immortals shaping Earth’s history and civilizations. In the post-credits scene, Eros and Pip the Troll (played by Patton Oswalt) appear to help the remaining Eternals face judgment before the Celestials.
Feige has previously discussed the introduction of Eros and Pip, suggesting they could pave the way for other supernatural characters, such as Ghost Rider: “The adventures of Eros and Pip is something that is very exciting for us. 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, Spider-Man, and that’s where our friends Eros and Pip live.”
In 2022, Oswalt told ComicBook.com that he hadn’t heard any news about a Pip and Eros return but expressed excitement about the possibility of joining Styles for an Eros and Pip movie, comparing it to successful projects like Guardian of the Galaxy and Ms. Marvel. Eternals is currently available for streaming on Disney+.
