15 Marvel Aliens That Are Way Too Weird For The MCU

List Rules
Vote up the Marvel aliens that are cool, but still too strange to work in the MCU.

In many ways, Guardians of the Galaxy has been Marvel’s most surprisingly successful film. While most comic book properties are inherently fantastic and a more than a bit weird, Guardians moved things in a truly bizarre direction. The movie takes place almost entirely in outer space, and the main cast are constantly surrounded by wacky and wild alien races. In fact, four of the film’s protagonists are freaky aliens themselves, ranging from green-skinned humanoid to anthropomorphic trash panda. 

That being said, there are dozens of fictional alien races to play with in the Marvel universe, and some are so weird that they definitely won’t appear in The EternalsGuardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, or any other corner of the MCU's cosmos. A few of the potential candidates are too visually bizarre to work on the silver screen, while others have traits that could only ever translate as straight-up goofy. The success of Guardians definitely broadened the potential types of stories that Marvel can get away with telling, but they’re not yet ready to explore the deepest and darkest corners of their fictional galaxy.
