Who Are the Eternals ? Marvel's Upcoming Movie Explained


The Eternals:

The fog from the story and Marvels secrets has started to shed by the time and new things are coming out shockingly. The Eternals are going to be new group of superheroes to defend the earth from different villains who want to destroy earth. Also to defeat the mightiest villain (Thanos) in MCU, some of the heroes sacrificed their lives. So new people are needed to come up with even greater powers than last heroes as most of you are aware of Captain Marvel, who is extremely powerful but still she barely stood a chance against Thanos, so, marvel is going to need far more powerful characters to defeat the upcoming dangers.

Hopefully, The first Eternal who is going to be introduced in MCU is expected to be Ikaris, he is possibly a human who evolved to posses superhuman powers, agility and strength. All the eternals are expected to be immortals, so is he. He is also ancient and expected to be living on Different planet as his actual purpose of life was unknown,but, Marvel may change the facts and present the Eternals to be different from the comics stories, which is healthy and surprising for the fans of Marvels Cinematic Universe.


According to different comic stories, The Eternals were granted powers by the Celestials to fight and defend earth in future against some danger which is probably unknown to us and also The Eternals. When Celestials came down from space, they created The Eternals to perform tasks in their place. Basically, Celestials created three species,

The Deviants — which are monstrous creatures and are supposed to be living underground.

The Humans — I hope you are aware of this specie.

The Eternals — The Powerful specie of heroes who defeated the Deviants and defended Humans.


The Eternals possess superhuman strength, telepathy, flight, teleportation, illusion-casting, transmutation of organic and inorganic matter. The can also produce force, heat, light, and other electromagnetic radiation inside their body.

The Celestials:

Celestials were Ancient Entities, who existed millions of years ago in the universe. They were so powerful that they could transform and manipulate energy & matter on their own will. They could create and destroy planets. They also had a hold of Infinity Stones and use them for different purposes of their own. Eventually, they Died in the Marvels Comic History. If you can remember Ego from The Guardian Of Galaxy, Father of Star-Lord, was a Celestial Creature.

In the MCU, the Celestials have been depicted as an antiquated and perhaps wiped out a race of incredible creatures. The principal Guardians of the Galaxy uncovered that they used to go through the universe, making decisions about whole universes; they utilized the Power Stone to crush civic establishments that they considered dishonorable to endure, and it's conceivable they used the other Infinity Stones also. Something at last happened to the Celestials, however, and they disappeared from the universe.

As per the Marvel Studios Visual Dictionary the planet Sakaar (found in Thor: Ragnarok) is covered with the bodies of Celestials.
