Eternals Mid-Credit Scene Explained
Our movie ends with some of the surviving actors of Thena, Makkari, and Druig heading out into space in search of more of the Eternals. The three converse in the Domo, fearing that they have found no other Eternal, with Arishem the judge looming in their future. While their hopes are low, a beam of light shines through the Domo.

The not-so-well-kept secret has been confirmed, as Harry Styles graced our screens. Styles perfectly sums up the charm required to play Eros, aka Starfox, as he immediately begins flirting with Thena after his introduction. At the end of his exchange, Eros offers his help to the Eternals. He suggests he knows where to find their friends and reveals a surprise to the group. Starfox, like Sersi and Ajak before, had a Golden Sphere to communicate with the Celestials.
Who is Eros?
Created by Jim Starlin in the 70s, Eros of Titan is one of the strongest and most charming Eternals. Referred to by Pip as the “Prince of Titan,” Eros is depicted in Greek mythology as the god of love and in the Marvel Universe as the brother of Thanos. In addition to his usual abilities as Eternal, Starfox’s powers include controlling the emotions of others. As you can imagine, this led to an incredibly problematic comedic story. Usually reckless, Eros will usually only become stern when in conflict with his older brother, Thanos.
What does this mean for the MCU?
Starfox and Pip the Troll both have ties to various pivotal characters in Marvel history. Among them, Adam Warlock and the Guardians of the Galaxy could pay immediate dividends in the MCU. While we can’t totally rule out the reintroduction of Thanos-related stories, the debut of another Marvel Cosmic powerhouse seems inevitable. Starfox, and more specifically Pip the Troll, both have ties to the Silver Surfer in Marvel Comics. With powerful celestial enemies among them, it would make sense for our Marvel heroes to seek out the Silver Surfer.
