Avengers: Infinity War is a film which has had a tremendous emotional impact on its viewers. It was also a massive hit from a financial and critical perspective and it leaves the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) in a much different place than it was before. Fan theories and speculation about what will happen in Avengers 4 is abound in addition to discussion about some of the more mysterious aspects in Avengers: Infinity War.
Indeed, the nature of the Soul Stone is being heavily talked about, particularly when it comes to a scene between Thanos and young Gamora which may have took place within the Soul Stone. According to the Iowa City Press-Citizen, Joe Russo, co-director of Avengers: Infinity War, apparently told children at Iowa City’s City High that this was the case. Here is what he specifically said:
“Yeah, it’s implied [that] it’s the Soul Stone. It’s all orange around, then he’s inside the Soul Stone with the amount of power that it took to snap his fingers – he has this out of body experience with Thanos. When he goes inside the Soul Stone he has this kind of conversation with the younger version of his Gamora.”
Joe Russo also stated that Gamora is indeed alive within the Soul Stone:
“She in fact is, yes. It was an attempt on our part – because we don’t like two dimensional roles or three dimensional villains every villain is a hero in their own story and as insane and psychotic and brutal and violent as Thanos is he’s a more complex villain if you go on a journey with him emotionally. He does care for things and it is complicated for him to execute his plan and it cost him something. He said at the end that it cost him everything and that it was the only thing he loved which was Gamora which is why we put him back with her at the end. I just want to reiterate with the audience that he does feel true emotion even though he is a monster.”
