Will Deadpool & Wolverine address the giant Celestial in the MCU.

“Eighth MCU Movie to ignore this”: Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman’s Deadpool & Wolverine Facing Backlash for Ignoring a Massive MCU Plot Hole Even the Previous 7 Films are Guilty of

Being the threequel in the Deadpool film series and the sole MCU release for the year, there has been significant anticipation surrounding Deadpool & Wolverine. However, despite the anticipation, fans are expressing dissatisfaction with the upcoming Marvel film for overlooking a significant aspect of the MCU.

Marvel has consistently ignored the fate of the Celestial Tiamut, destroyed and trapped in the ocean in the 2021 film. Despite the massive celestial body protruding from the ocean, it has received little mention in the previous films, leading to fan dissatisfaction with the studio’s persistent neglect of this aspect of the franchise.

Marvel Has Remained Silent on Celestial Body in the Post-Eternals Releases

The 2021 Marvel film introduced the immortal beings in the MCU, who have covertly inhabited Earth for millennia, preparing for the emergence of a new Celestial. However, they eventually decide to save humanity and Sersi successfully turns Celestial Tiamut into stone, leaving it stuck in the ocean.

Despite the film’s underwhelming performance, it remains part of the MCU. However, the studio has subsequently moved ahead with Phase 4 and then Phase 5, without making any notable mention of the giant celestial body sticking out of the ocean in any of the seven films released since Eternals.

Although briefly referenced in the Tatiana Maslany starrer Disney+ series She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, the lack of mention of the Celestial in previous projects has left fans questioning whether the MCU has acknowledged its existence.

The same is expected to be the case for Deadpool & Wolverine, as it seems unlikely that the film would address the “giant statue of a man sticking out of the ocean.” And fans have expressed their discontent with the studio constantly neglecting a significant element of the franchise.


Fans Express Discontent With the Overlooked Celestial in Deadpool & Wolverine

Fans have been eagerly awaiting any mention of the Celestial body since the 2021 film Eternals. With the hype and anticipation surrounding Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman’s Deadpool threequel, fans are now questioning whether it will be addressed in the upcoming film.

All I really wanna know is will this be the *eighth* MCU movie to ignore this giant thing sticking out of the Earth,” one fan said on X (Twitter). However, some fans speculate that the Celestial might be explored in the upcoming Thunderbolts film.

However, many also mentioned that after experiencing extraordinary events like the appearance of Nordic gods, alien invasions, and the snap that wiped out half of all life, there is a possibility that “people might just accept unusual occurrences as the new normal” in the MCU.

There’s a 100% chance this gets mentioned by Deadpool.

I think they will ignore this, hopping that eventually, people will forget about The Eternals movie

Or, you know, after Nordic gods descending on Earth, aliens invading New York and half of all life literally disappearing for 5 years, the people might sort of just go with it at that point.

It’s a core part of Thunderbolts

Others suggested that the studio might be avoiding addressing it in the hopes that “people will forget about The Eternals movie.” Released under Phase 4 of the franchise, the film received significant criticism. While there were discussions of a sequel, later reports revealed it had been canceled.


Eternals is available to stream on Disney+.

Deadpool & Wolverine is set to release on 26 July 2024.
