THE ETERNALS: Marvel Releases Better Look At D23 Celestial Concept Art

Fan pics of a banner for The Eternals were posted on social media from D23 back in August, but we now have an official release of the concept art offering a much better glimpse of the cosmic powerhouse.

We previously saw a look at this particular Celestial from Marvel's The Eternals back in August thanks to social media posts from Disney's D23 Expo. However, we now have a much better look thanks to Marvel and the Earth's Mightiest Show preview for the company's plans for 2020.

It's thought that this particular Celestial is actually the one we see in Guardians of the Galaxy, whose severed head is converted into the mining waystation, Knowhere. It's unconfirmed, but a side-by-side comparison does show some striking similarities.

The Eternals is said to be a prequel that spans 7,000 years, so it's entirely possible we may see how Knowhere came to be.

Though we don't know which Celestials from the comics met their unfortunate demise in Guardians of the Galaxy and went on to become Knowhere, it's theorized that it's Jemiah the Analyzer as the bar Star-Lord and co. visited before meeting with The Collector was called the Boot of Jemiah.

HERCULES RUMORS STILL PERSIST


There are persistent but unconfirmed rumors that Hercules will appear and that he will be depicted as LGBTQ.  The rumor originated this past Spring but continues to persist despite SDCC and D23 passing with no mention of the character's appearance.

IT'S AN EPIC THAT SPANS 7,000 YEARS


A recent interview with Kevin Feige from the Brazilian Comic-Con CCXP confirmed the time span of the film. Feige stated, "The movie, it’s ambitious, and takes place over 7000 years from present day to Mesopotamia to all sorts of locations and time periods and really feels like nothing we’ve done before. [It's] an epic that spans 7,000 years of human history, has cosmic connotations, and changes everything we know about the MCU."

THE MCU'S FIRST OPENLY GAY SUPERHERO


While The Eternals may or may not feature Hercules, the film has been confirmed to feature the studio's first openly gay superhero. Marvel Studios President Kevin Fige has revealed that the gay character is a man who is married with kids. It's rumored but unconfirmed that the character in question is Richard Madden's Ikaris.
