After a lot of time being spent talking about the location of the Soul Stone, the MCU fans were shown the location of this Stone in the latest movie, Avengers: Infinity War.
Spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War ahead
Gamora (Zoe Saldana) has always known where the Soul Stone was and the deadliest woman in the universe reveals this location only so that Thanos (Josh Brolin) would stop torturing Nebula (Karen Gillan).
After Gamora and Thanos reach Vormir, they are met by the stone’s storekeeper Red Skull (Ross Marquand), and he tells Thanos that the only way to get the Soul Stone is to exchange the soul for someone he loves.
Thanos then tosses Gamora off a cliff with tears in his eyes and kills her.
Near the end of the movie, after he snaps his fingers and kills half of the universe, Thanos has a vision where he meets young Gamora.
For all those who noticed, Thanos and Gamora were standing in a lake where the atmosphere was smoky orange haze. This is the Soul Stone.
So, did Gamora really dead or is her soul just trapped in the Soul Stone?
For the fans who read Infinity Gauntlet by Ji Starlin, the Soul Gem has a pocket dimension called the Soulworld.
While a few comic characters can visit the Soulworld at will — like Adam Warlock, it is the dimension where the souls which are lost by Thanos’ snap are stored.
If the place is the Soulworld, it will pave way for the remaining heroes to restore the universe to what it was before Thanos snapped his fingers.
