The Soul Infinity Stone is not in Black Panther so where the hell is it?

SPOILER ALERT: I'm talking about Black Panther.

It's called the Soul Stone. It's colored orange in the comics, and it grants the user the ability to steal, control, and manipulate living and dead souls, plus it serves as a gateway to a pocket universe. At full power, you could use the soul stone to control all life in the universe. I thought we were going to see it in Black Panther, and I eagerly waited to catch a glimpse of it. But the family drama that played out on screen, although very good and highly entertaining, did not once show me the infinity stone. This is the last solo movie to be released before Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters later this year. So where the hell is the stone? How does Thanos find it?

Over the last decade or so, Marvel/Disney has bounced five of the stones around the movies. We know the space stone is in Loki's hand, and from the ending of Ragnarok we can almost surely guess it gets turned over to Thanos in short order. The other was entrusted to the Nova Corps at the end of the Guardians of the Galaxy first film so getting it from them should be short work for a titan the likes of Thanos. Then there's the reality stone, which was in the possession of the Collector. Again, it shouldn't be hard for Thanos to get his hands on that one either.

Maybe the heart-shaped herbs are formed in proximity of the soul stone? But if so, they certainly weren't orange. However, I probably shouldn't get so caught up on color. It's possible that the soul stone could have been trapped inside the vibranium meteor that crashed in Wakanda millions of yars ago, and it created the spiritual plane that T'challa goes to when having conversations with his father.

Or could the soul stone be in an entirely different place? Some people online think it could be in Heimdall's sword, which is why his sword could power the Bifrost Bridge.

It feels odd that the location of the stone hasn't been revealed. Leaving this task for a big reveal in Infinity War just makes me think that Infinity War might actually suck as a movie, because it already has a TON of stuff to fit into its allotted time.

  1. Maybe Thanos already has it? Or maybe it will be revealed in the next movie - ore maybe even the one after that? That might be the one thing that stops Thanos from becoming unbeatable - he can't find the last stone.
    I've not read the comics, so no idea otherwise.
    Seeing it at lunch today and looking forward to it!

  2. That might be something they fight over in the movie though I'm sure by the end Thanos will have it.

  3. That's why it's two movies.

    I'm hoping Adam Warlock shows up with it. It wouldn't be a bad way to start off the story.

  4. Oh, I'm disappointed that it wasn't in Black Panther. I was hoping it would tie Black Panther in with the other Marvel movies and that we would see him in Infinity War.

    1. You know when someone who become the next king or the next black panther will buried in sand then they saw the "SOUL" of the previous black pantern so maybe it were plant next to the tree where the first black panther gets his power or maybe near the place where they found the sand that used to buried the next black panther


      Just my theory

  5. I agreed that Infinity War might really suck - ensemble movies aren't easy which is why the first Avengers is such an anomaly. It's really hard to do any character development with that many heroes. My guess is in Infinity War we will see various teams working together and focus on 2 or 3 of them. The key as always will be the bad guys and while Thanos seems off I'm loving the trailers of his Black Order. They might save it.

    As the Soul Stone wasn't revealed in Black Panther, I'm now doubting there are 3 Infinity Stones on Earth. The first Infinity War movie is going to be dense enough without adding more complications like the search for another stone. My bet is they will reveal the backstory and location of the Soul Stone in Captain Marvel. They hinted at Adam Warlock at the end of GotG2 so he may play a part as well. They certainly need to leave some mystery for Infinity War Part 2 and I highly doubt Antman2 will touch the subject.

    It makes sense to me that completing the set would be the first act in the 2nd Infinity Wars movie.

  6. They certainly are packing a lot in for the fans. I've been watching these hit or miss, mostly miss, and I have not caught on to all of this.

  7. Okay, I swear I left a comment here over the weekend. Maybe not? There's always the possibility that I'm losing my mind...

    Anyway, the gist of my comment was that, sadly, I had to skip most of your post because I really want to be surprised by the story when I see the movie. Sorry, Mike.

  8. Soul stone is most likely in Wakanda, even tho we didn't see it in Black Panther. It's probably responsible for allowing T'Challa and Killmonger to converse with the souls of their respective ancestors
