6. The Soul Stone
Most theories leading up to Thor: Ragnarok had positioned it as the most likely story for the Soul Stone, the final Infinity Stone, to be introduced. Theories of where it is ranged from Heimdall or Odin having it all along, using it as the source of their unique individual powers, or the Goddess of Death, Hela, having it, but these were all wrong.
The Soul Stone is not in Thor: Ragnarok, leaving only two movies left for it to be introduced. Our money is on the Soul Stone being introduced in Black Panther and we explore the reasons why here. It boils down to Black Panther’s secretive and highly advanced nation of Wakanda having access to Vibranium which came from a meteor and also embracing spiritually in such a way where Black Panther also reigns over Necropolis, the City of the Dead. The Soul Stone being attached to the extraterrestrial source of power and the Black Panthers being able to commune and draw power from their ancestors seems perfectly connected for what the Soul Stone can do.
However, this would mean three of the six Infinity Stones were already here on Earth, bringing us back to the big question of how and why this could be.
Soon, these stones will all be located and recovered as Thanos seeks to prove himself to audiences why he's the ultimate villain that 22 movies built towards. Share your thoughts and theories in the comments!
In Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok, Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok—the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization—at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk!
