Avengers: Infinity War VFX artists have revealed that the Soul World may not be what it seems.

Fans will recall that at the end of the Marvel film, Thanos (Josh Brolin) reunites with a young Gamora (Ariana Greenblatt) shortly after his devastating finger snap.

This lead to speculation that they were meeting in the Soul Worldbut Digital Domain's Kelly Port and Marvel Studios' Dan DeLeeuw have said that there's no official name for the mysterious, orange-hued location.

Speaking to IGN, Port and DeLeeuw revealed that they actually referred to it as "the way station", Port adding: "I don’t think it’s a place that actually exists." 

DeLeeuw also elaborated: "It was interesting, because Thanos being that lead character, normally... you can get very introspective.

"The metaphysical way station came along, and we think, that would be interesting. But from a storytelling perspective, I thought it was really wonderful that that sequence stayed in there, because [it's] really a nice kind of pause.

"Like, it just goes straight from the snap to people flipping out.

"It had this moment of reflection, which I thought was really nice just in the narrative, reflecting about what he has done."
