Avengers: Infinity War left us with so many questions we don’t expect to be answered until 2019’s Avengers 4.
But directors Anthony and Joe Russo have thrown us a bone concerning that vision that Thanos had right at the end of their epic Marvel movie.
When Thanos activates the Infinity Gauntlet and wipes out half the population of the universe, he is transported to a water world beneath an orange sky, where he sees a young version of his adopted daughter Gamora, who he sacrificed to acquire the Soul Stone.
We theorised that this vision takes place within the orange Soul Stone itself, which has now been confirmed by Joe Russo.
“It is [in the Soul Stone], it’s an orange world that they’re in,” he told the Happy Sad Confused podcast.
“Because he’s in the Hero’s Journey in the movie, we did point that out that there’s a correlating journey in the film between Thor and Thanos. Certain characters make very human choices in the movie that are very tragic that shift the direction of the storytelling.
“Quill makes that choice on Titan when he punches Thanos in the face. Thor makes that choice when he plunges the axe into Thanos’ chest because he wants to tell him that he got him, that this is payback. If he had not made that decision, had he gone for the kill, they wouldn’t be in this situation.
“For Thanos at the end of the movie, this is part of his Hero’s Journey – we once again put him face to face with the only thing that he cared about, where he has to own up to the emotional cost of what he’s done in the movie.”
Has Gamora’s soul survived in the Infinity Stone that Thanos traded her life for? And could she be instrumental in the events of Avengers 4? Unfortunately, that’s one question that we will have to wait for an answer to.
