Wait, is Harry Styles starring in the upcoming Marvel movie, The Eternals?! That seems to be the question on everyone’s minds these days. For those who missed it, rumors first started spreading that he was cast in the new flick back in September, but now, a new Google search has seemingly confirmed the role.
Yep, if you search The Eternals on Google, the results list the One Direction member (who made his acting debut back in 2017 when he starred in the war movie Dunkirk) as part of the cast. See for yourself:
OK, so wait — is this the proof we’ve been waiting for?! Is the singer officially heading to the big screen again?! What else do we know about the movie? And are there any other new flicks that Styles starring in? Here’s everything you need to know…

But aside from the Google search, why do people think he is going to star in The Eternals, you ask? Well, back in September, after it was announced that Styles had been cast in a different new movie called Don’t Worry Darling, journalist Justin Kroll referred to it as his “first acting gig since Dunkirk.” But when podcast host Kris Tapley added in a now-deleted tweet, “Second if we’re counting the Marvel movie no one knows he’s in,” it sent the internet into a frenzy.

To make things even more suspicious, fans quickly noticed that the pop star had recently followed some members of the cast —Gemma Chan and Richard Madden – on Instagram.
Who Else Is Starring In It?
Aside from Styles, Chan and Madden, some other big names have also been cast in the movie, including Angelina Jolie, Kit Harington, Kumail Nanjiani, Lauren Ridloff, Brian Tyree Henry, Lia McHugh, Don Lee and Barry Keoghan.
When Will The Movie Come Out?
The movie was originally supposed to come out in February 12, 2021, but the release date was pushed to November 5, 2021. And get this — filming officially wrapped on February 4, 2020, so if Styles is starring in the new movie, that means he kept the entire production a secret from his fans!
What Else Is Harry Styles Starring In?
As we mentioned earlier, the musician was cast in another upcoming movie called Don’t Worry Darling. That’s right, for those who missed it, it was announced last month that Styles was going to star in the flick alongside Florence Pugh (who fans may recognize from Little Women, Midsommar, Black Widow and more), Chris Pine (who is most known for his role in Star Trek, but also acted in Wonder Woman, Into the Woods and others) and Fifty Shades of Grey‘s Dakota Johnson. But want to know the best part? Drum roll please… Olivia Wilde is directing the movie! Plus, Katie Silberman (who was behind films like Isn’t It Romantic, the Netflix movie Set It Up and more) wrote the screenplay. Wow, talk about a dream team.
Deadline reported that the film “is set in an isolated, utopian community in the 1950s California desert.” According to Collider, Pugh will play “an unhappy housewife who slowly begins to question her own sanity when she starts to notice strange occurrences.” As for Pine, he will star as “the leader of a mysterious worksite.” The outlet adds, “All the men are employed just outside of town, and Pine’s character is revered by all of his staffers and their wives, almost in a cult-like fashion.”
Johnson’s character reportedly lives next door to Pugh, and “will begins to exhibit strange, paranoid behavior and tries to warn Pugh that everything in their community is not what it seems.” But what about the 1D heartthrob, you ask? Well, Collider reported that the 26-year-old will play “Pugh’s picture-perfect husband, who loves her dearly, but is hiding a dark secret from her.” Sounds intense!
That’s not all. According to Deadline, Styles is reportedly being eyed to star in another movie! This one is still untitled, but it’s going to be based off a novel called My Policeman by Bethan Roberts.
“The story takes place in the late 1990s, when the arrival of elderly invalid Patrick into Marion and Tom’s home, triggers the exploration of seismic events from 40 years previous: the passionate relationship between Tom and Patrick at a time when homosexuality was illegal,” the synopsis reads, according to the outlet.
What About His Music?
It’s also been rumored that the 26-year-old has been hard at work on his third studio album! Yep, you guys might want to brace yourselves for some new tunes from Styles because he was spotted in Bath, England, earlier this year. Now, it’s still unclear what he was doing there, but some fans were quick to point out that his last LP, Fine Line, was recorded at a studio right near Bath. Coincidence? We hope not.
