The eternal It is based on the comic of the same name by Jack Kirby. That series introduced a group of immortals called Eternals and their rivals, the Deviants. Within the comics, Thanos and the other inhabitants of Titan were also Eternals. It is not clear if the MCU will maintain that connection.
During the 2019 CCXP, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed some details of the plot and the characters in the movie, confirming that the Celestials and the Deviants are really included in the movie. The Celestials are known as a powerful race of aliens who played a very important role in the key events of human history. These are the reasons why the Eternal and the evil counterparts of the Eternal were created.
"(The Eternals is) an epic that covers 7,000 years of human history, has cosmic connotations and changes everything we know about the MCU." Feige explained. "It's ambitious and it takes … from the present time to Mesopotamia to all kinds of locations and periods of time and it really doesn't feel like anything we've done before."
"We will see the Celestials in their full, true and enormous power in Eternals, yes." Feige said.“The deviants are in the movie. The Deviants in the mythology of the comic were … extremely important plans of the Celestials … and we will see Deviants who resemble anything we have seen in the comics. This is a new form of Deviants that we will see in the movie. "
