Reporter lets slip Harry Styles will be ‘in a Marvel movie’

Way back in September 2020 Netflix writer Kris Tapley tweeted and deleted that Harry will star in a Marvel movie “no one knows he’s in.”

Sharing journalist Justin Kroll’s tweet about Harry joining the cast of DWD in his first acting job since Dunkirk, Kris wrote: “Second if we’re counting the Marvel movie no one knows he’s in.”

Why do fans think Harry Styles will be in The Eternals?

Since it was reported Harry would be “in a Marvel movie”, fans are adamant The Eternals is the gig in question.

The fact he follows Richard Madden, set to play Ikaris in the upcoming movie, is something Directioners are taking as a big clue, after Harry followed him on Instagram at the end of 2019.

However, this could just be an innocent addition to Richard’s following list.

Who will Harry apparently play in The Eternals?

Harry is rumoured to be playing Thanos’ brother Starfox in The Eternals after following Richard and Gemma Chan – who’s set to play Sersi in the film – on Instagram.

Movie fans have already mocked up what Harry might look like as Starfox, with an image of the ‘Watermelon Sugar’ singer looking like an IRL hero.

Marvel are yet to address the rumour, but we’ll update this page if they do!
