Rumours about the former One Direction star's involvement in the upcoming superhero flick first began to swirl last September when Variety reporter Kris Tapley shared a news article about Harry's casting in Olivia Wilde's new thriller Don't Worry Darling that referred to the role as his"first acting gig since Dunkirk". In Kris's now-deleted tweet, he wrote:"Second if we're counting the Marvel movie no one knows he's in". headtopics.com

To add fuel to the fire, the two Brit stars began following each other when filming for the project commenced in the summer of 2019.

Eternals will be released in UK cinemas in October 2021Although fans were left disappointed after the trailer for the film dropped last month and Harry was nowhere to be seen, some have held on to hope after realising neither was the character he's reportedly set to play, Starfox.

While there's every chance that these two very famous people working in the same industry happen to be friends, fans are convinced Salma has now subtly confirmed that Harry will be a part of the Marvel film.

What do you think? While nothing is confirmed yet, fans on social media are certainly hoping the rumours are true. Taking to Twitter, one wrote:"Please, let the rumours of Harry Styles being in Eternals be true. PLEASE," while another added:"WHAT?! Harry is in Eternals?!" A third joked: "Can't believe Salma Hayek's owl exposed one of MCU's biggest secrets." headtopics.com
