- "Hey, fellas! Hey, wait, where are you going? Hey, you were supposed to be my lift home! How will I get out of here? Hey! Oh, gee, I've got so many more stories to tell! Oh, guys! Oh, gee..."
- ―Watcher Informant to the Watchers
The Watchers are an ancient godlike alien race that watch over the universe.
The Watchers gathered to meet with their informant, who told them stories of his travels across the universe. They were briefly interrupted when the Quadrant passed through their world on its way to Ego's planet. They later grew tired of his stories and left, despite his pleas for them to stay.

Behind the Scenes
- Kevin Feige has confirmed that while the cinematic rights to the Watchers are shared between Marvel Studios and 20th Century Fox, Uatu was owned solely by Fox, hence why he was not featured in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. However, with the acquisition of 20th Century Fox by Walt Disney Studios in December 2017, Marvel Studios have regained sole cinematic rights to all Marvel properties previously owned by Fox, including Uatu.
