The Soul Stone had been a mystery for so long. It wasn’t until Infinity War that we knew where the last Infinity Stone was. Now, the Russos wanted to surprise everyone in the movie. That’s why they showed that the last Stone was at a location never before seen in the MCU. The popular speculation before that was that the Stone would lie with Heimdall. How the Russos presented the Soul Stone narrated two important things in the movie. The first was the inclusion of Red Skull and the second was the death of Gamora.
The scene also showed how determined and focused Thanos was when it came to any hindrance in his mission to save the universe. At the Infinity War screening, the Directors shed some more light on the abilities of the Soul Stone and its working. “The Soul Stone obviously has the ability to manipulate your soul, the essence of who you are. One key moment where it’s used is where Doctor Strange turns into multiple Stranges and then Thanos used the Soul Stone to eradicate all the fake Stranges and momentarily shoves Strange out of his own body, and Strange has to pull himself back in….Of course, when Thanos goes to the Soul Stone itself, to speak to his dead daughter, he obviously has an ability to resurrect, conjure the spiritual representation of the people who are dead.”
The Russos also narrated how the Soul Stone scene was one of the toughest scenes to come up with. “It was really when, the point where we decided that the movie was Thanos’ movie, we needed the lowest moment of the film to belong to him, so that’s when we started to develop the Soul Stone story. How could we create pain? How could we dimensionalize him so he went on this journey during the film.”
The trailer of Avengers 4 is speculated to arrive this Wednesday, although no confirmation has arrived from Marvel regarding this.
