Note: The following may contain major spoilers for Thor: Ragnarok
Thor: Ragnarok is one of the three #Marvel films heading out way in 2017 and we're ending 2016 with a fresh serving of rumors by ScreenGeek. While these rumors should be taken with a grain of salt, it's worth noting that ScreenGeek has released other plot leaks before that ended up being true.
These Thor: Ragnarok plot leaks place the Soul Infinity Stone in the movie and debunk three major theories surrounding it while reinforcing one theory that’s beeen lingering since 2013’s Thor.

What The Plot Leaks Have Revealed
According to ScreenGeek:
Thor, Hulk and Valkyrie have to find the Soul Gem in order to defeat Loki and Hela, who has helped Loki usurp the throne, but is also planning to destroy the Nine Realms in the Ragnarok.
Loki is eventually betrayed by Hela and helps Thor defeat her, but then betrays him as well and gives the Soul Gem to Thanos, as well as the location of the other Infinity Stones, for his own protection when Thanos launches his offensive on the universe.
Sif, the Warriors Three and Heimdall are returning. Heimdall dies.
The Theories Debunked
Theory Debunked: Hela carries the Soul Stone
If these plot leaks are true then one theory it debunks is the theory that Hela carries the Soul Stone in her head gear. Since Thor, Hulk and Valkyrie have to find the Soul Stone to defeat Loki and Hela, then the Soul Stone is definitely not within Hela’s helmet.
Especially since Loki then goes to betray Hela using the Soul Stone. This suggests that Hulk, Thor and Valkyrie succeed in finding the Stone, with Loki joining them after they find it.
Theory Debunked: Thor's Hammer stores the Soul Stone
Another theory debunked is that the Soul Stone is within Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir. Check out the theory here:
Theory Debunked: Thanos has the Soul Stone
Additionally, the theory that the Soul Stone is already in possession of Thanos is also debunked, since according to ScreenGeek Loki is the one who gives it to him.
So, Where Is The Soul Infinity Stone?
The T.H.A.N.O.S. theory suggests that the Soul Stone is within an object whose written word begins with the letter “H.” Since it’s not Hela, Hela’s helmet or Thor’s hammer, then the most likely scenario is that Heimdall has the Stone?
While the rumors don't explicitly mention it, it’s possible that Heimdall does have the Stone. Both in the mythological Ragnarok event and in these plot leaks Heimdall dies. In Norse mythology, Heimdall is killed by Loki in the Ragnarok event.
Since Loki personally delivers the Soul Stone to Thanos, what if Loki is the one that kills Heimdall, ultimately removing the Soul Stone from Heimdall?
