Harry Styles is primarily known for his associations with Britain's The X-Factor and beloved boy band One Direction, but do you recall his time with the Eternals and the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

In this case its Harry Styles as the MCU's Starfox - is it famous, infamous, or forgotten?

First reported by Variety weeks before the intended surprise reveal in the Eternals' public theatrical debut, Harry Styles debut as Thanos' brother Eros (AKA Starfox) was intended to be the latest MCU post-credits scene surprise but like a band out of tune, it failed to hit the right note.
