Should we be sticking around after the credits roll on Marvel’s Eternals?
The ever-growing Marvel Cinematic Universe is coming back to the silver screen for the third time this year with Eternals, its first ensemble film since the groundbreaking Avengers: Endgame. With a star-studded cast featuring the likes of Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Brian Tyree Henry, Barry Keoghan, Don Lee, Harish Patel, Kit Harington, Salma Hayek, and Angelina Jolie, Eternals sees the eponymous superhero team emerge from obscurity to fight their evil counterparts, known as the Deviants.
The movie recently had its world premiere, resulting in even more excitement from fans because it means that the movie is that much closer to finally being released in theaters. The COVID pandemic has led to delays with the film, which was originally scheduled to premiere in February as The Eternals.
As with any MCU movie, now that the film is almost here, there are also some inevitable questions: Where does it sit in the MCU timeline? What ties, if any, does it have to other MCU movies or characters? Are those rumors about Harry Styles playing Eros of Titan, Thanos’s brother, true? And should we remain seated once the end credits begin to roll?
While many of the questions being asked about Eternals have not yet been answered, we can confirm that—as with so many other MCU films—Eternals does have some post-credits action. So when those credits start rolling, do not leave the movie theater until the very end.
How many post credits scenes does Eternals contain?
Eternals features two post-credits scenes. Speaking to Fandango, director Chloe Zhao confirmed that there will indeed be two big surprises after the film’s initial conclusion. "Don’t just stay for the first one," Zhao said. "Also stay for the second one, too. They are equally as important in weight, and both have big surprises for you."
Is Harry Styles In the Post-Credits Scene of Marvel’s Eternals as Eros?
There has been no confirmation as to whether Harry Styles will appear in Eternals. Rumors began swirling about a year ago that he would make a brief appearance in a post-credits scene as Starfox/Eros of Titan, the brother of Thanos. At this point, it seems as if we're just going to have to wait and see the actual film in order to know if those rumors are true.
