AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR SPOILERS BELOW, TREAD CAREFULLY
It’s been a week since the domestic release of Avengers: Infinity War and people are still shocked by what the Russo brothers have accomplished. The ending of the movie is undoubtedly one of the most shocking film conclusions in recent years and many have been speculating endlessly on just what it means. If you haven’t seen this movie yet, leave now!! The following will be SPOILER heavy and I don’t want to be responsible for ruining this movie for you!
Now, let’s carry on. The end of the movie began once Thanos snapped the fingers of his fully stone-filled gauntlet and instantly wiped out half the universe. Fans have been coming up with some crazy theories that have been shot down immediately. However, one that has made its way to the directors was the one regarding that end scene with Thanos and a younger Gamora.
After the snap, we see Thanos in this empty landscape. All that’s there is a structure and a young Gamora. She proceeds to question him on his decision to wipe out half of the whole universe. This interaction occurs in this huge landscape that is lit up orange from the sky, which coincides with the color of the soul stone. While talking at his alma mater, Joe Russo was questioned on this theory, and to many people’s surprise, he gave them a direct answer. Check out the interaction below:
Yeah it’s- it’s implied 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.
So she’s there?
She’s in fact, yes.It was an attempt 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 about things and it is complicated for him to execute his plan and it cost him something. He said at the end “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.
Joe Russo has confirmed that they did indeed make that scene occur within the confines of the soul stone. After murdering his daughter, and then half the universe, Thanos ended up being confronted by her younger version in the end. The one thing he loved was the one loss he had to take, and it seemed to weigh on him heavily. The eeriness of the scene just consisting of Thanos and young Gamora was one of the most memorable.
Now that we know this is the stone, it begs the question as to if this is where half the universe will end up residing until the part two of Infinity War. What are your thoughts on the Russo’s creating a physical landscape for the soul stone? Let us know over at SuperBroMovies! – JB Baker
