In Avengers: Infinity War, when Thor strikes Thanos with his new axe Stormbreaker and Thanos snaps his fingers inside the gauntlet, with all 6 Infinity Stones, does Thanos go inside the soul stone?

There is a scene with Gamora (younger) after the snap

Gamora (younger): Did you do it?
Thanos: Yes.
Gamora (younger): What did it cost?
Thanos: Everything.

Is this scene taking place inside the soul stone?

  • I think its extremely hard to say for certain where Thanos is in the final scenes of the movie. Its somewhat speculative that he's in the soul-stone. – iandotkelly May 8 '18 at 20:45
  • I'm not even sure what makes you think that. Can you provide a little more context as to why you would even think that to be a possibility? Why would he "go inside the soul stone" and what does it mean to do so? – Napoleon Wilson May 8 '18 at 20:51

According to the Rousso Brothers themselves (quoted here by Nerdist), the answer is

yes. Thanos indeed went into the Soul World after his snap.

In the aforementioned interview, they said they tried to imply that this was the case (hence the orange tint of that scene), but the movie never says outright that this was the case.

    >Q&A appearance by the Russo brothers in which they confirmed the theory that Thanos’ reunion with Gamora was not a hallucination or a vision. Instead, Thanos retreated into Soul World, the realm located within the Soul Stone that in the comics has been known to keep the souls of its victims. Thanos may have reluctantly killed Gamora to obtain the Soul Stone, but her spirit still resides within it. – Mazura May 9 '18 at 1:07

    >In Marvel’s comic book universe, Thanos killed Gamora when she turned against his plans of cosmic destruction, and her soul was kept in Soul World for several years after her death. During the Infinity Gauntlet storyline, Gamora, Pip the Troll, and Adam Warlock all managed to escape Soul World and get new bodies in the process. – Mazura May 9 '18 at 1:07

    @NogShine I think my summary is enough. I don’t need a direct quotation from the article, I don’t think. – DonielF May 9 '18 at 4:04
