Endgame Writers Reveal What Happened With The Soul Stone

Endgame Writers Reveal What Happened With The Soul Stone


Of the six Infinity Stones, the Soul Stone
is arguably the trickiest to wrap your head around. Of particular concern is the question of what
happens to the stone if it’s returned to the place from which it was taken. Thankfully, the writers of Avengers: Endgame
have come forward to explain exactly what happened to the Soul Stone in the film. First, a little refresher. Avengers: Endgame sees Black Widow and Hawkeye
take a trip to the mysterious planet of Vormir on a mission to pluck the Soul Stone out of
time before Thanos or his minions can acquire it. Hawkeye ultimately obtains the Stone after
Black Widow heroically throws herself off the planet’s massive cliff, echoing the same
sequence from Infinity War in which Thanos killed Gamora for the stone. Before he retires to a life of slow dancing
with Peggy Carter at the end of the movie, Captain America travels back to the past to
place the Stone in the same spot it was in before Black Widow sacrificed herself. As MCU fans now know, there are pretty specific
rules for what has to happen before someone can take the Soul Stone from Vormir. “In order to take the stone, you must lose
that which you love. A soul…for a soul.” After Infinity War and Endgame, we’ve seen
that part of the process go down twice. But we’ve never before seen anyone try to
put that Soul Stone back. How did Cap successfully return the Soul Stone? And, perhaps more importantly, would putting
the Soul Stone back revive the person who died for it? Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely explained
during a recent episode of CinemaBlend’s HeroBlend podcast that Captain America faced no trouble
returning the Soul Stone, but sadly, the soul-for-a-soul exchange that Black Widow and Hawkeye made
with the keeper of the Stone, Red Skull, wasn’t reversed in that moment. “How does one return the Soul Stone?” “It’s a good question. I think it is an everlasting exchange.” “There’s a slot.” “That’s right. That’s right, it’s like an old-time bank.” Unfortunately, this shows that just because
the Soul Stone was returned doesn’t mean that those who were sacrificed to retrieve it get
to come back to life. The exchange is permanent, and the soul that
was sacrificed can’t be retrieved. As Markus put it, While fans held onto the hope that Black Widow
could perhaps be resurrected once Captain America put the Soul Stone back on Vormir,
that’s apparently not going to happen, as it’s simply not the way the Soul Stone works. Cap returning the Soul Stone only patched
up the timeline, it didn’t undo Black Widow’s death. This has a huge repercussion on the future
of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, since Marvel Studios is currently developing a Black Widow
solo movie. How that’s going to work with a dead Black
Widow is sort of up in the air. It’s possible the movie will be a prequel,
giving us the backstory for Black Widow that the other MCU movies have only ever teased
at. It’s also possible that she really is alive
out there somewhere, brought back by Hulk’s use of the Infinity Stones without him or
anyone else knowing about it. It’s also possible that the movie will focus
on an entirely different Black Widow; at this point, we just don’t know. While Marvel has kept quiet about the film,
there have been some clues as to when Black Widow’s solo adventure might be set. Past reports pin the film as being a period
piece, set partially in Natasha Romanoff’s younger years working with the KGB, and then
jumping forward to 15 years after the fall of the KGB. If Markus and McFeely are to be believed,
and there truly is no way that Nat can be resurrected, then there isn’t any other point
in time that Black Widow screenwriter Jac Schaeffer can place the film other than years
before the events of Avengers: Endgame. Losing Black Widow in Avengers: Endgame was
a painful experience. And though she may never come back to life
in the present day to join the Avengers who lived through the film, it looks like super-spy
is all set to make at least one more appearance on the big screen before fans say goodbye. Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Looper videos about the MCU

  1. What exactly can ot do? I meam we've seen space, power time and reality stones work by themselves, but what about the soul stone itself?

  2. Hold on if Black Widow is dead does the Black Widow solo movie a pre-quel or an alternate universe Black Widow movie.

  3. They didn't even mention red skull was captain America's arch enemy? How's that work there just chill now?

  4. Why do people make such a big deal about this nonsense? We all know widow is dead dead and everyone already knew her movie was being set in the past.

  5. I'm gonna go ahead and say it, they waited too long to release a solo Black Widow Movie. It's already been stated that it's going to be set in the past, and at this point, so what? Unless her past has a significant universal item/entity/threat it's gonna be underwhelming.

    What I do care about and wished they placed in the movie was Steve's interaction with Red Skull, and him returning the mind stone to Hydra Nazis.

  6. I think cap could’ve gone back before she died and brought her to the future and everything would’ve stayed the same bc in another timeline she did sacrifice herself for the stone

  7. I have these question. How did the mind stone return to the staff of Loki? the space stone to the tesseract cube form? and the reality stone to ether form?

  8. What happen to Steve Rogers – Sharon Carter love angle? How about the Past Gamora living in the future? Where did Valkyrie get Pegasus (flying horse)? Why did Black Widow did not get a decent burial?

  9. Losing Black Widow was a painful experience? It's a frickin movie! Americans are so sheltered. No idea what pain is.

  10. Since the Black Widow move is set in the past maybe we’ll see Hulk go back to that time to bring her to the present boom Black widow is reborn

  11. 3:47 . subscribe as even more mcu videos are coming soon
    People stop making endgame videos two weeks before
    Looper: But not us

  12. That's bollocks. A soul for a soul. To put it back you have to take the place of red skull. A soul for a soul.

  13. sometimes watching these videos I think about "really how dumb we all are"
    To really think about stuff that is indeed not even true!!!

  14. How does it work with a dead Black Widow? They already confirmed it was a prequel a while ago πŸ˜‚

  15. I am happy that at least one of the good old Avengers is coming to the big screen after the Endgame

  16. Easy solution to this. Captain was in possession of the space-stone and could made a portal to go to Vormir, and dropped off the soul-stone. He could have used the space-stone to go anywhere to return the stones.

  17. This was great idea as much as we wanted her solo movie before captain marvel. Capt marvel having no links with avengers wasnt going to be that good. But her appearing in endgame made that movie blockbuster bcz ppl wanted to know about her. Now ppl are more emotionally linked with black widow and she got way more fans while earlier she was side character. So this sets her movie to be blockbuster

  18. What a useless video. Endgame writers reveal what happened with the soul stone. There's a slot. Really? I wish people wouldn't waste our time like this. We really do have other things to do.

  19. Cap did not put the soul stone back. He gave it Hawkeye before Nat sacrifices herself. That is why he never says what happens and didn't insist the have a funeral. Nat the jumps into the future. That is who the see over shoot when they're waiting for Cap to return.

  20. Captain America and Red Skull must’ve had a very awkward encounter when he came to return the soul stone.

  21. So it cant be reversed? Then why is Gamora alive? If Cap returned stone before The Black Widow throws herself into pit that wouldnt that save her? Becuase if thats a NO, then Gamora should be dead too! Yet shes alive?Lololololl dumb writers.

  22. How about the possibility of a Black Widow story in a different universe, dealing with different conflicts that are new to the audience? 346? 940? 905? Doesn't have to be 616. With Endgame, we're seeing the birth of Disney's Marvel Cinematic MULTIverse.

  23. You know it was a bad movie when they have to explain a thousand and 1 different reason why this happened

  24. Russo's lost a great opportunity – to take the soul stone you must lose that which you love. To return it you must regain a love that you had lost. That's exactly what Captain America did – and would make his decision to stay not just for his own fulfillment but necessary to save the timeline.

  25. ironman is missed, but somehow i feel that everyone forgot abt black widow. i'm looking forward to see her in the bigscreen again.

  26. Honestly, I'm banking on the Black Widow film being a prequel film. In fact, I'm hoping it is, and they need to add what the fuck happened in Budapest I mean they've brought it up in two Avengers movies now.

  27. Black widow:kills herself
    Looper: 10 THINGS YOU MISSED WHEN BLACK WIDOW DIED
    1.she blinked
    2.she has the big gay
    3.hawkeye tried to kill her
    4.die
    5.die
    6.her soul is in the soul stone

    8.i need to get some money
    9.i need to get a job
    10.where's gamora?

  28. Here is the problem, they broke time and a multiverse has been set in motion, If marvel adheres to proper quantum theory and philosophy, their infinity stones were destroyed and the and they borrowed the stones from an alternate time line, assuming Cap was even able to return the stones to the correct reality (which could be argued if Stark had coded the armbands to move through the multiverse in a certain way (I.E. the next reality over, or 2 realities over so on so forth) Cap could have returned all the stones except the Tesseract because Loki stole the other realities Tesseract and they traveled to the past in a 3rd reality. To further complicate the issue, since they have demonstrated that this is the variation of time travel they are using which was confirmed by The Ancient One, the Steve Rodgers at the end of the move that left, never returned, he failed somewhere and the Old Steve Rodgers that shows up and spent his life with Peggy Carter probably wasn't from the MCU's reality but a 4th reality. For it to be the same Steve Rodger's he would have had to return to the 2nd reality returned all the stones from there save the Tesseract, and then time hopped again to return that stone back. Had he stayed there he would not have returned to the MCU's continuity, for it to be the same Rodgers he would of had to alter the armband after delivering the Tesseract which was beyond his means unless he traveled back to the 2nd reality, had Tony Stark modify it to return to his own reality when traveling through the quantum realm, and then he would of had to have remained hidden from himself and anyone else who would have recognized him through out history to the current point time.

  29. how did captain america get to vormir and how was the reunion between red skull and captain america?

  30. They should have given him the gauntlet with just the time stone in it and he reversed time until she came back

  31. What happen when there are hundred of pairs of people lining up for the soul stone ? Who will get the soul stone?

  32. So he didn't need to replace it? Also was Cap suppose to return the stone before the advengers changed the past and took the stones? They clear would have prevented the guardians of the galaxy from getting together. With stopping quill from getting the power stone and gamora lots of stuff? Time travel is tricky to make work plot-wise

  33. Hulk should go fight for her soul in a hulk solo movie that sees him team with dr strange and ghost rider to fight the devil for her soul.

  34. I wasn't curious about this one. I was curious about the stone made up of the ether…Did he injected back into Jane?

  35. That may not be the case. The answer came during Endgame.. The fact that Thor still has his hammer Mjolnir.
    It is also clear that because Captain America stayed in the past he was in an alternative timeline. We also
    can come to a conclusion that they could have messed up the matrix of the timeline and even bring back Tony
    Stark alternative timeline. However in the comics there is the good Tony Stark and then the bad Tony Stark.

  36. If Deadpool was in Endgame, for fetching the Soul Stone

    Deadpool : Oh Redskull, Did I ever told you, How much I love you

  37. I love black widow. Ps: I love Scarlett Johansson in fact I didn't know who she really was until she was playing the character Black Widow in fact I did a photoshoot impersonating her as for my character acting photoshoot.

  38. If the exchange for the soul stone is irreversible regardless of time travel or alternate universes, how is Gamora still alive? Does she have two souls?

  39. Yes true but how about the fact that Nat sacrificed herself? πŸ€” Does she get it by default once it's returned? 🀣

  40. I Wish Adam Warlock Brings Black Widow and Gamora Back From the Soul Stone Alive in Vormir after Mysterio Makes Her Alive in Spider Man Far From Home and Black Widow movie and Guardians of the galaxy vol.3 and the Incredible hulk 2 2028 film With Hulk's Time Machine Forever!πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™β€β€β€β€β€β€β€β€β€β€β€β€β€β€β€β€β€β€β€β€β€β€β€β€

  41. They can do whatever they want. Different writer and directors moving forward. I think we will see Widow again at some point. Plus they only said that returning the soul stone can't bring her back. Cap has the other stones including the time stone.

  42. Possible plot hole: 2 soul stones

    In MCU’s timeline, no Avenger knows about Thanos in 2014 (Guardians of the Galaxy). So when Thanos travels to the future (Endgame), Infinity War event would not have happened in that timeline. Thus, rendering Endgame from existence as well. Meaning, Black Widow and Hawkeye would not have gone to Vormir to retrieve the soul stone. Same goes for Thanos, as he already β€˜died’ in the future.

    When Captain America travels back in time to return the Soul Stone, he would have met Red Skull. Wouldn’t that leaves us with 2 Soul Stones in that timeline?

  43. so putting the stone back WITHOUT the retrieval of a soul AUTOMATICALLY creates an alternate timeline cuz that "missing soul" is now a permanent change of events..

  44. I don't feel you answered the question. How does he return the soul stone when it only appears for a sacrifice of a soul you love?

  45. Ok so how come ebony maw, captain America, iron man, Hawkeye and many more were able to hold the infinity stone even though in guardians of the galaxy the collector said the creators held the power stone for seconds then perished and the big deal in guardians of the galaxy was when they all held the stone together then ebony maw just passed it to Thanos at the start of infinity war and before you say it’s because he’s magic then how come Hawkeye held it and the others???

  46. =vvvvvvvvvvvvvhhv. πŸ§πŸ™πŸ™πŸ˜©πŸ˜‘πŸ₯΅πŸ˜’πŸ˜›πŸ˜•πŸ˜ŸπŸ˜ŸπŸ˜ŸπŸ˜ŸπŸ˜ŸπŸ˜ŸπŸ˜’πŸ€“πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ”πŸ‘‘πŸ˜„πŸΌπŸΌπŸ‘‘πŸ‘‘πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜‚πŸ€¨πŸ˜”πŸ€¬πŸ€¬πŸ˜ΆπŸ˜¦πŸ˜πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘πŸ˜¬πŸ˜ πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜«πŸ˜–πŸ˜«πŸ˜•πŸ˜–πŸ˜¨πŸ˜πŸ˜±πŸ€¬πŸ€¬πŸ€¬πŸ€¬πŸ€¬πŸ€¬πŸ€¬

  47. Think about this. What if Hulk actually did accomplish what he was trying to do and he did actually bring Widow back. BUT she was brought back on Vormir where she died at the base of the cliff and she has no way to get off the planet and no way to contact anyone to help her get off the planet.
    This movie that is coming out for Black Widow could be her wandering around Vormir trying to find a way off the planet and reminiscing about her life.

  48. After endgame –
    Hulk gets the time stone
    Iron man gets the soul stone
    Cap gets reality stone
    Natasha gets soul stone
    Hawkeye gets power stone

  49. what about the other thanos, if the other thanos kill his daughter again in another time then if thanos snaps again he would see black widow and him self because in end game thanos gets snaped by iron man an who ever gets snaped gets traped in the soal stone so thanos would be weird.

  50. Let’s not be stupid obviously it’s before why would it be after??? Anyways time travel back in time and get Natasha & Iron Man back

  51. Still doesnt make sense. It's made clear that changing the past doesnt affect the future. If cap travels back to the past, to the point where Hawkeye and Black widow arrive on Voramir, he could give past nat the same coordinates he was supposed to use to return and the present would still remain unaffected

  52. The black widow movie will either be a prequel, a movie about her escaping the soul stone, or a movie about a black from a different timeline coming to ours like 2014 gamora

  53. How did cap put the space Stone back in the tesseract put the Mind Stone back in the sceptre the time Stone back in the eye the reality Stone back in Thor's girlfriend and the power steering well I guess the orb would be easy if it still exists
