Until now, the biggest Marvel Cinematic Universe villain has been Thanos who arrived in Avengers: Infinity War after several years of story building. However, in the world of comic books, there are far greater enemies than Thanos and his Infinity Gauntlet, which makes us wonder what other cosmic villains will land in MCU now that Thanos is here.
Hopefully, Marvel will contemplate bringing in one of the villains listed below in its future movies after Avengers 4 wraps up the story that unfolded in Avengers: Infinity War. Check out these incredible and mighty Marvel villains that are still not spotted in MCU!
1. THE SKRULLS
The Skrulls first appeared in the Fantastic Four #2 written by Stan Lee and penciled by Jack Kirby in 1962. Since then they have become one of the biggest threats to Earth’s existence. They are a race of alien shape-shifters from a planet called Skrullos. They are all set to debut in the 2019 movie Captain Marvel, and hopefully, they will also be a part of the next Avengers movie.
2. THE LIVING TRIBUNAL
The Living Tribunal was also a Stan Lee creation penciled by Marie Severin and Herb Trimpe in 1967 series Strange Tales #157. He is among the mightiest omniscient beings in the Marvel Universe and has already been mentioned in the MCU. His responsibility is to monitor and maintain the balance of all reality, including all the multiverses that exist in Marvel Universe. He is the judge, jury, and executioner of anyone or anything he deems dangerous to this balance, and that includes the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
3. THE CELESTIALS
The Celestials have already been introduced in the MCU courtesy of the Guardians of the Galaxy movies. In the first Guardians movie, a rotting head of a space giant is called Knowhere and is home to scores of aliens. One of those aliens is the Collector who told the Guardians about the Infinity Stones when he mentioned a Celestial’s destruction of a planet by using the Power Stone. In the second GOTG movie, Star-Lord’s own father called Ego was a Celestial, though, unlike the Celestials from the comic books.
In the comic books, the Celestials are mightily powerful, and they created the Kree, the Skrulls, and other species. They are immortal space beings wearing cool armor. In case Marvel decides to use them as the villain in MCU, they are capable of destroying anything or anyone.
In the comic books, Eternity debuted in Strange Tales #138 by Stan Lee and penciled by Steve Ditko in 1965. Eternity is the last cosmic corner of the “four points of the cosmological compass.” Eternity, his sister Infinity, his son Entropy, and Death jointly form the cosmos and all that it contains. Eternity is top of the charts as far as powers are concerned. He exists beyond time and space. He can warp reality the way he desires. He was seen on the seal in the temple in the original Guardians of the Galaxy movie as one of the four cosmic beings who created the Infinity Stones, and after Avengers; Infinity War, he might be seen in the MCU too.
Cyttorak was first created in Doctor Strange #44 in 1992, although the first reference to the entity was in Strange Tales #124 by Stan Lee/Jack Kirby back in 1964. Cyttorak is basically a god. He has the power to create or destroy life. He exists in Marvel Cinematic Universe as we saw Doctor Strange use the spell called Crimson Bands of Cyttorak in his battle with Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War.
Magus was created by Jim Starlin in 1975’s Strange Tales #178. He is a mighty being who also wishes to get hold of the Infinity Gauntlet, but, his aim is to completely destroy the universe rather than wiping out half the life to restore the balance, the way Thanos wanted. This makes him a far more dangerous risk to existence than the one posed by Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War. While Magus hasn’t been mentioned in MCU, but, the fact that he is the dark side of Adam Warlock, who according to Kevin Feige is going to play a crucial role in future of MCU. If Adam Warlock comes to exist in MCU, his dark side would inevitably follow.
