Galactus is rumoured to be in The Eternals 2 and we have all the juicy details regarding this supposed leak. Click on to read it all
If there’s one villain MCU fans are eagerly waiting to see on the big screen, then it’s Galactus. Many thought that The Eternals will introduce the character. But that didn’t happen. However, as per fans there were a lot of hints left regarding the character in the movie. And if a new rumour is to be believed, then we will get to see Galactus in The Eternals 2. Scroll a little to know the details.
New rumours say that Galactus will arrive in The Eternals 2. He will apparently have a rivalry with the celestials or hate them outright. What’s more interesting is that, if this rumour is to believed, then Galactus gets his powers by eating all the celestials that are growing in the host planets.
So the celestials are certainly not going to be happy about this. And predictably, the leak also says that there’s going to be a big battle between Galactus and the Celestials. It’s easy to assume that the two will presumably fight for the right to destroy Earth.
It’s possible that the Eternals saving Earth by freezing the celestial growing there in the first film could have brought Galactus’ attention towards it. After all, now he doesn’t have a celestial to feed on.
Also, Marvel comic book fans will know that this idea of Galactus of being the counter to the celestials isn’t anything new. In the Earth X comics by Alex Ross and Jim Kreuger, the same idea is presented. And since the first movie heavily drew from those comics, it’s easy to presume that the sequel will continue doing so and will introduce Galactus as well.
In an interview with MCU Direct, The Eternals screenwriter Kaz Firpo had this to say about the character eventually entering to the MCU:
“Galactus is an amazing, amazing character, and villain. We are, you know, obviously setting the stage for intergalactic, cosmic, megalith confrontations, especially when you kill a space god—and then the space god comes and kidnaps you and plans to judge Earth, I think the door is very much open for world-eating villains… Galactus is one of those iconic figures of the Marvel Universe that [they’re] excited to see.”
We aren’t sure if we will get to see Galactus for the first time in Eternals 2 or if we will see him in the rumoured Silver Surfer special first. But either way, he isn’t coming to the MCU soon as first the heroes will have to deal with Kang before they move on to bigger threats.
What do you think about this Galactus rumour? Is he going to show up in The Eternals 2? Let us know.
