Harry Styles can add another accolade to his résumé: Easter egg hunter.
The former One Direction heartthrob is likely the first star to appear on-screen in the Marvel feature film “Eternals” after the credits start. Still playing his character in that scene is Marvel TV’s “Agent Carter” star Hayley Atwell, who makes a surprise return after fans accidentally discovered her next appearance during the movie’s lead-up advertising campaign.
One eagle-eyed Reddit user pointed out Styles, whose character names include Algrim the Strong and Lady Bullseye, about halfway through the movie and wiggled up the snap at the top of his butt like the other Marvel heroes do when the credits roll.
The Marvel character ensemble began with the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie and continues with new additions “The Inhumans” (actually filmed for a 2006 TV series, which failed to get picked up), “Black Panther” and next month’s “Avengers: Infinity War.” There are multiple “Eternals” films in the works, though the first — starring Elizabeth Olsen and Ben Kingsley — isn’t slated for release until 2019.
