Promo poster released featuring official arrival of the MCU’s Celestials
The promo poster features four Celestials standing mighty on a desert planet in front of a starry background. Each of them sports a different look and color scheme.
In the comics, the Celestials are ancient cosmic beings as old as the universe itself. Their exact origin is unknown, and they are beings of near immeasurable power.

In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Celestials were first mentioned in 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy. In the film, a brief scene featured one of the cosmic giants, who used the Power Stone to wipe out life on an alien planet. What’s more, the head of one of these Celestials is featured prominently in the film, as the space port known as Knowhere.
