In comic book lore, the Celestials are godlike beings who seed life on worlds across the universe and are the creators of both the Eternals and their enemies the Deviants.
During the Comic Con panel, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige described Eternals as "full on Jack Kirby," referencing their creator and his bombastic, larger than life visual style.
The Celestials have already appeared in a limited role in Guardians of the Galaxy, glimpsed in the Collector's explanation of the origin of the Infinity Stones, with the head of a Celestial forming the space station Knowhere, where the Collector resided.
Likewise, Ego referred to himself as a 'Celestial' in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 - though his appearance did not resemble the Celestials' classic comic book look.
Eternals is planned for a November 6, 2020 theatrical release.
