WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD FOR ETERNALS ENDING. The 26th Marvel movie has been released today and featured two very exciting end credits scenes. The first saw Thena, Makkari and Druig visited by a surprise new MCU star.

The mid-credits saw the arrival of One Direction’s Harry Styles into the MCU as Thanos’ brother Eros.

A fellow Eternal, he also goes by the name of Starfox and is more of a fun-loving womanising adventurer than his Mad Titan sibling.

In the scene, the new Marvel movie character complements Angelina Jolie’s Thena on her beauty and offers his help.

Starfox was also accompanied by his sidekick Pip the Troll, who is voiced by Patton Oswalt.

According to Giant Freakin Robot’s sources, Styles has signed a five-movie deal with Marvel, so we could be seeing a lot more of his Starfox in the MCU’s future.

Meanwhile, the post-credits scene for Eternals involved Kit Harington’s Dane Whitman.

The moment saw him open up an old chest he inherited from his ancestor, which contained the Ebony Blade.

In Marvel Comics, Dane is one of the characters to be known as the Black Knight.

The Black Knight, who is a member of The Avengers, inherits and then wields a mystical sword carrying a curse.

Carved from a meteor, the Ebony Blade was enchanted by the wizard Merlin for the first Black Knight known as Sir Percy of Scandia.

He went on to shed much blood with the sword, hence it acquired a terrible curse that slowly corrupts its user into a lust for violence and death.

In Marvel Comics, Dane inherited the blade from his ancestor Sir Percy and used it for many years.

At one point the Ebony Blade passed to Valkyrie when Dane was turned to stone and his soul was sent back into time to the 13th century, before it was later returned to him.

But because of the curse, the Black Knight eventually gave up the sword and drove it back into the same meteor from whence it came.

In the Eternals post-credits scene, Kit’s Dane approached the wrapped Ebony Blade saying: “I’m sorry, I have to try.”

But just before he grabbed, it a voice from off-screen interrupted him saying: “Are you sure you’re ready for that, Mr Whitman?”

So just who was that voice talking to Kit’s character in the Eternals end credits scene? Well according to director Chloe Zhao it was Blade himself.

She told Fandom: “That was the voice of one of my favourite superheroes, Mr Blade himself. Blade, Blade, Blade, yeah!”

The actor playing the vampire hunter in the MCU is none other than Mahershala Ali, who is also getting his own Blade solo movie in the MCU.

Eternals is out now in cinemas.
