There was a wide variety of statues in the Temple of Eternity in Thor: Love and Thunder, and here’s an explanation for each character they portray. It should be noted that the statues are no indication that the characters will appear in the MCU any time soon, if at all; all that is done is to establish and confirm their existence. Also, there’s no guarantee that the MCU versions of the characters will be the same as they were in the comics, but the comics have to provide most of their framework, so it’s still worth addressing.


eternity


Eternity in Marvel Comics

Of course, since the statues are in the Temple of Eternity, there is a statue that represents Eternity itself. In both the comics and the MCU, Eternity is a cosmic entity embodying the aspect of creation in the multiverse, both emphasized by its wish-granting status Thor: Love and Thunder and the implication that he helped create the Infinity Stones Guardians of the Galaxy. As an abstract concept of the multiverse, Eternity is one of the most powerful characters in the Marvel Universe, and that should still be the case in the MCU, although it’s unknown if he’ll appear again after that love and thunder.


infinity


Another statue to appear in Thor: Love and Thunder is one of the sisters of Eternity, Infinity. Like Eternity, Infinity is the embodiment of an abstract concept of the Multiverse, in this case the infinite space of the Multiverse, and was also credited with being one of the creators of the Infinity Stones; All of this means that Infinity is one of the most powerful Marvel characters out there, both inside and outside the MCU. before love and thunderInfinity had only appeared in a mural Guardians of the Galaxybut that she has a statue affirming her existence nearly a decade later may help her make a full appearance later in the MCU.


Death


Besides Eternity and Infinity, the cosmic entity Death also has a statue in the Temple of Eternity; Of all the cosmic entities said to have created the Infinity Stones, Entropy is the only one not to have a statue. As her name would imply, Death embodies decay and actively works to cause destruction in the universe, although she does so primarily to maintain balance as opposed to outright villainy. In the comics, Thanos’ motivation for all the destruction he causes in many stories is to impress Death, and while that aspect of his character was written out of the MCU, despite being mentioned in 2012 The AvengersDeath with a statue could mean that its existence is fully confirmed and that it could appear somewhere in the future.

The Observer


What if Watcher Protector Multiverse

A notable statue in the Temple of Eternity is that of a Guardian, the race of beings who spend their time observing the events of different universes without interfering with them. While the Watcher depicted is unknown, it is most likely Uatu as he is the most prolific of the Watchers in the comics and is already involved through his appearance in the MCU What happened if…? If that’s the case, then Uatu the Guardian, who has a statue in the Temple of Eternity, would work to cement its prominence for the broader MCU beyond that What happened if…?possibly even setting up an appearance of him in live action.

The Living Court


living dish

Another cosmic entity that has a statue is the Living Tribunal, the multiverse’s supreme authority, which judges multiverse threats when all other options have failed. The Living Tribunal isn’t very active in the comics, but he still stands as a being whose authority and power is virtually surpassed by all but the One Above All, the god of the Marvel Universe. The Living Tribunal appeared briefly in it Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, so his statue is further evidence of his existence in the MCU and a potential vehicle to establish a future appearance; The MCU’s Phase 4 focus on the multiverse supports the idea of ​​the Living Tribunal appearing at some point.


aeon


Of all the statues that will appear in the Temple of Eternity, Eon is one of the few characters that has never appeared before. In the comics, Eon is one of the children of Eternity who embodies the concept of time and created the quantum bands used by the original Captain Marvel. Eon was a relatively minor character in the comics and his role was taken over by his daughter Epoch after his death, so it’s unknown what kind of role he will have in the MCU, if any outside Thor: Love & Thunder Cameo in the form of a statue. Given his connections to the Captain Marvel Myth Eon could appear in phase 4 The wondersor at least be referenced in some way.

The one above everything


The one above all celestials

The last statue seen in it Thor: Love and Thunder is that of the one above all. While sharing a name with the God of the Marvel Universe, this One Above All is the leader of the Celestials and the most powerful of them all. Since the One Above All was a supporting character in the comics, it is unknown what role he would play in the MCU, but if he does appear it would likely fit into Arishem’s plans for the succession of Earth eternal.
