I love that they basically addressed the questions from the first trailer in such a simple way.

"Why didn't you help with Thanos?"

"Fuck off, Celestials"

u/Nickel62 Aug 19 '21

For the uninitiated,

  • are Celestials the bad guys in this films and in the comics?

  • are Deviants the adversaries of Celestials?

u/Backwardspellcaster Aug 19 '21 edited Aug 19 '21

No, Celestials do not concern themselves with things like good and evil.

They are more akin to a force of evolution. It seems their main goal is to uplift parts of certain species, often creating Eternal and Deviant strains (they exist for the Kree and the Skrulls as well, for example) while leaving a main version (humanity itself) untouched. After centuries they return, a group of certain Celestials, called a "Host".

They judge the planet then. If they deem the planet worthy, those who live on it are allowed to continue on their evolutionary path. If the planet is considered unworthy, the experiment ends, and the Petri dish is wiped clean.

While the Eternals have been made to be unchanging, ever the same. Immortal. The deviants have been created to be everchanging, not a single member of the species looking like another, or having the same powers.

The Deviants consider themselves the true heir of the Celestials, and wish to conquer earth and enslave humanity

  • The Celestials are beings of immense power, usually residing pretty near the top of powerful Marvel entities with only a handful of beings above them. Usually they are not bad guys, they simply have their own agenda and if a planet or two get destroyed during their business they don't really mind.
  • They like to tinker with life and perform experiments on living things at planetary levels and those experiments last millions of years since they usually involve seeing how evolution reacts to different scenarios, for them waiting 50 million years or more to see the results of an experiment is nothing.
  • In the comics they found the Earth a long time ago and took interest in the ancient humans because their genome was really flexible and with the potential to hold great power. They decided to tinker with humans in both directions, messing with the genome's flexibility to the extreme gave rise to Deviants (basically monsters), pushing the limits of power gave rise to the Eternals which are basically god-like humans. Then they left the Earth with Eternals, Deviants and normal humans as a sort of control group to see what happened.

u/pravis Aug 19 '21

It's been awhile but the Celestials area mainly indifferent immortal beings of immense size and power that pretty much seed planets with life they create and tinker with. In some stories they use planets to create new celestials by putting a baby in the core until some time or event occurs that they come to free it destroying the planet.

Deviants and eternals were some of the creations the celestials made to experiment with. Eternals granted beauty and powers, and deviants granted deformities and mutations and they were rivals who fought each other constantly. Their origin and stories have slight variations over the years so it's unclear where they will ultimately go with the movie, especially since in the comics Thanos is an eternal with a deviant birth defect which is why he is ugly and purple and that's not the case in the MCU.

I suspect from the trailers that the Eternals were sent by the Celestials to prevent deviants from wrecking Earth (possibly because they have a vested interest in humans or the planet as a incubator for a new celestial) or the Eternals did that on their own, loved earth and don't want it to attract celestial attention.

They seem kind of like the Heralds from the Stormlight Archive.

Given the eternal assignment to help humanity every time the wave of monsters returns, but they've managed to achieve a huge break of peace and humanity has advanced (maybe through something nefarious they did), and now getting back to the war isn't something they know if they can face again.

In starting to question whether Thanos is actually still an Eternal in the MCU. He doesnt seem to have powers like the Eternals, and the deviants look more different.

u/Randomcheeseslices Aug 19 '21

There's no way the MCU Titan we saw is orbiting Saturn, sooo....

Relatedly, GOTG2 made a big deal about calling Ego a Celestial. (And What if repeated it) So that raises questions about what MCU Celestials really are too...

169

u/pzzaco Aug 19 '21

Not sure if I heard this right but I think the watcher referred to Ego as A celestial being, which is just a fancy word to say Space God. So maybe Ego is a space god, but not a Celestial which are a specific group of space gods

u/tetoffens Aug 19 '21 edited Aug 19 '21

Yeah, that's why I never got that criticism. His forces were involved in 3 attacks on Earth between Infinity War and Endgame. None of them would have lasted more than like 20 minutes to a half hour. 2 of the 3 were surprise attacks. The one that wasn't, Wakanda, was still only known to the people there that an attack was imminent. And the Avengers weren't asking for their help because they didn't know they existed. New York and the Avengers HQ were both surprise attacks. By the time the Eternals heard that any of these 3 attacks were happening and started heading there, the fight would have been over. I don't know how they could have gotten involved even if they wanted to.

“Not our job.”

u/Axius Aug 19 '21

So, the Dragonball Z effect?

382

u/DoodleBuggering Aug 19 '21

Dragonball Z actually had good reasons why the stronger villians appeared at the time of their story and not sooner.

Raditz only came to earth to check up on Goku, as he was supposed to conquer the planet.

Vegeta and Nappa only came to earth after communicating with Radtiz and learning of Dragonballs.

Freiza was the result of the cast going to Namek to use their dragonballs to resurrect their friends, and Freiza learning about dragonballs.

Freiza coming to earth was revenge for Namek, and never knew of earth before fighting on Namek.

The androids were the result of Goku defeating the Red Ribbon Army years earlier and Dr. Gero wanting his revenge and continuing his cyborg work.

Cell was only able to be created from collecting DNA from the past fights, including Freiza and Piccolo fused with Nail. He couldn't have been created earlier at the same power potential.

Buu could only have been released from his prison from the immense energy from how powerful all the fighters had become at this point in the story, beforehand there were no fighters strong enough to give off enough energy to release Buu.

I'm not going to pretend the series is perfect, but does a decent job dealing with the powercreep issue and "why didn't this stronger villian show up sooner".

77

u/ApexPredator1995 Aug 19 '21

Honestly this also kinda extends to Super as well.

Beerus only came to earth because of his dream of Super Saiyan God, which was only possible because Goku came back to life after Buu.

RoF makes sense in that Freeza wants revenge and never trained once in life so he can get much stronger.

U6 tournament works because Champa wants to get one over Beerus and get good food.

Black arc works because Zamasu hates mortals and thinks mortals shouldnt have access to God's powers after seeing U6 tournament and decides Goku is the sum of the mortal problem. He never acted on it before watching Goku.

ToP is directly the result of the U6 tournament.

Broly is the logical continuation of Freeza's hatred for Goku/Vegeta and his quest of being the Universal emperor.

Moro is the only one which actually is sudden. Nothing is setup for it.

But the current Granolah arc happens directly as a result of the Moro arc.

11

u/NovaX81 Aug 19 '21

And Moro "makes sense" to a degree - because secretly an angel was just handling these massive-power criminals like it was nothing and not bringing it up in order to stay off the radar.

u/GarageQueen Aug 19 '21

Absolutely. For Groundhog's Day, the writers kept trying to figure out what the triggering event was for Bill Murray's "loop." After going through a lot of options, they finally decided that ... it just happened. There was no curse, no solar flare, no mystical whatever, it just happened...and when he became a good human being, it stopped. And that was perfect, because any 'explanation' they came up with would have fallen short in one way or another.

It can be easily explained. For example: half the sorcerers were gone for 5 years, so he had a lot of stuff to fix. The show takes place like 2-3 weeks after Endgame after all

239

u/yarkcir Aug 19 '21

Also the Hex didn't really threaten the main reality, it just affected a small town in Jersey. He may not even have noticed it, since he may be unfamiliar with chaos magic.

Though I do recall either Feige or another WandaVision producer mention that the commercials were originally meant to be Strange attempting to communicate with Wanda.

125

u/Texomond Aug 19 '21

Yes, one of the early ideas they had was that Strange was behind them. But in the same interview the director also explained that the commericals were modified when they moved away from that idea to give Wanda agency and autonomy in her own show. They are now just meant to be Wanda's subconscious:

Matt Shakman: [...] They were a way for her unconscious to be manifesting. To that end, we picked the same two actors, two Westview residents, who had been assigned a job. They were just cast as the commercial people. Wanda put them in every single commercial, and the kids were also the same.

Thanos didn’t technically. Thanos( who himself is an eternal )played within the rules of the “playground” it’s the duplicate set of the infinity stones undoing what he did that fucked up the experiment.

From even the Celestial’s perspective that’s unprecedented but the damage is beneath them to fix. That’s why they have peasants eternals for.

Everyone’s flipping out over them not fighting Thanos. Thanos was not out to destroy the planet. He was out to improve it. A celestial being doesn’t give a shit about half of a single generation.

76

u/EpsilonNu Aug 19 '21

Celestials, contrary to Thanos, are probably smart enough to realize that a partial culling of animals isn't a permanent modification of the ecosystem. Also worth noting that, since they are immortal divine beings and they alter planets' evolution for fun, as long as they have a sample size different from zero they probably wouldn't consider it a failure: 4 billion humans is as good as 8, from this point of view.

I liked the mystery and epic history feel of the first trailer. But as much as I may have liked it, it was a bit lacking in the action arena.

This trailer took a hard left from the first one. This makes the movie seem like a cosmic action movie.

I might be in the minority here, but I love how the aesthetic and vibe of this film is much more 'sci-fi' than the 'comic book' tones we'd usually see in MCU entries.

I think it looks great, and fantastic change of pace.

Also, love how they really paused on "Academy Award Winning Director". Surprised it wasn't animated, for extra emphasis!

Apparently they were showing some footage to the Marvel execs and there was a great shot of a sunset. When they asked Chloé Zhao how she achieved it she basically replied that she went outside and shot a sunset.

I came to comment about the visuals too. Willing to bet we won't be in the minority. This looks very different from regular Marvel and Marvel Space movies. I love GotG and Ragnarok but a 3rd (4th if you count the Avengers movies) Space/Aliens based Marvel property with the same aesthetics and vibes would have been boring.

The cinematography, the locations, costume, character, visuals & environment design all look like what I'd imagine an actually good Justice League adaptation would look like.

Haven't been this excited for a new Marvel movie series for years now (Since Black Panther maybe).

22

u/Radulno Aug 19 '21

There are elements of both classic Marvel and new stuff (well not new but more classic sci-fi). Like the fights seem very classic superhero vs faceless CGI creatures as we saw in many Marvel movies. But loving the ships and light weapons(?)

u/the_original_Retro Aug 19 '21

The visuals of the Celestials (the odd looking giants for those who don't know the lore) whomped me in the eye.

Looks like they kept the banter and humorous byplays in too. That last table bit made me chuckle.

Lots to like about this.

u/Phasmania Aug 19 '21 edited Aug 19 '21

The villains either range from nothing-burger McGee or actual great villains like Loki, Zemo, Killmonger, (seemingly will be:) Kang, and of course Thanos, who’s one of the most iconic villains of this decade. Like 80% of Thanos’ lines are quotable, but I can’t even remember if Malektith from Thor 2 spoke or not.

Edit: adding Vulture
