"(The Eternals is) an epic spanning 7,000 years of human history, has cosmic overtones and changes everything we know about the MCU," Feige explained.

When asked about the possible inclusion of Celestials and Deviants, Feige officially confirmed that Celestials and Deviants are indeed included in the movie, with Celestials defined as a "large part" of the movie's history. Heavenly is known as a powerful race of aliens that played a huge role in important events in the history of mankind. They are the reasons why the Deviants, the eternal and the evil of the Eternals, were created.
"We'll see the Celestials in all their true, enormous power in the Eternals, yes," said Feige. "Deviants are in the movie. Deviants in comic book mythology were … extremely important Celestial plans … and we'll see Deviations that look like anything we've seen in comics. This is a new form of Deviants we'll see in the movie. . "
The Eternals is based on Jack Kirby's eponymous comic. This series introduced a group of immortals named Eternals and their rivals, the Deviants. Inside the comic, Thanos and the other inhabitants of Titan were also eternal. It is not clear whether MCU will maintain this connection.
The movie will feature a star-studded cast led by Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie and Richard Madden, former Game of Thrones, who are the protagonists of Thena and Ikaris, respectively. It will also star Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick) as Kingo, Lauren Ridloff (The Walking Dead) as Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta) as Phastos, Salma Hayek (Frida) as Ajak, Lia McHugh (The Lodge) as Sprite, Don Lee (Train to Busan) as Gilgamesh, Gemma Chan as Sersi, Barry Keoghan as Druig and Kit Harrington as Dane Whitman / Black Knight.
