- Warning: There are major spoilers ahead for “Eternals”.
- Lauren Ridloff appears in one of the two scenes in the film’s end credits.

Harry Styles made his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe at the end of “Eternals”. Its end credits scene was so secret that even one of the stars in the movie wasn’t sure what they were about.
“In January, we were doing a few covers and that’s when they added that scene,” Lauren Ridloff, who plays speedster Makkari, told Insider. “I was shocked because I didn’t even know exactly what we were shooting until we got on set that day.”
“It was really fun,” Ridloff added.
In the end credits scene, which you can read more about here, Eros (Styles) confronts Makkari, Thena (Angelina Jolie) and Druig (Barry Keoghan) claiming their friends are having trouble and he knows where to find them. .
Ridloff might not be sure what they were going to film because “Eternals” writer Kaz Firpo says Metro they wrote many versions of the film’s two post-credits sequences.
“We wrote about nine versions before deciding on the content of the film,” Firpo said. “There are very spicy ones that are always changing. It’s an evolutionary process.”
In an interview with CinemablendDirector Chloe Zhao said she has “been keeping an eye” on Styles since appearing in “Dunkirk” in 2017 and pitched the idea of pitching him as Starfox with Pip the Troll to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige “he some time ago “.
“I love the idea of getting to know Thanos’ brother,” Zhao said. “He’s an Eternal, our version of him… The idea that he went through what the Eternals went through, doing their job for the Celestials, is very interesting. And how that could have affected Thanos to become what he is. it is today, I love this idea. “

Ridloff told Insider that she doesn’t know what the next step will be for her character in the MCU.
