Speaking to IGN, Digital Domain’s Kelly Port and Marvel Studios’ Dan DeLeeuw, who worked on Avengers: Infinity War, mentioned that every Infinity Stone was associated with a color and that they were careful in coding each color every time a particular stone was being used or present in a scene.
DeLeeuw spoke about the infamous scene depicting Thanos and a young Gamora in what seems to be inside the Soul Stone, saying he thought of it as a bloody vault:
“We just explore quite a few different things and play around with the idea that it was a sort of vault, or as if we were in the Soul Stone, for example. But I think it ended up taking me playing around with the spread water as if… we had a lot of blood involved.”
He even refers to that space in the Soul Stone as “the way station”:
“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.”
After that, Port clarified that they were careful about which colors they used each time a stone was present:
“We’re always trying to color code anything the different Stones would do. Whenever you use the Power Stone it was purple, whatever you use the Space Stone it was blue, and so kind of hitting on the orange kind of tied into that.”
As a final comment, Port mentioned that she didn’t think that place, the “way station,” actually existed and the one person that really knows the nature of these kinds of scenes is Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios.

Here’s Every Hero Who Appears In The ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Trailer
Today, Marvel Studios released the first official trailer for Avengers: Endgame and revealed which heroes will likely be on hand for the re-match against Thanos.
Avengers: Infinity War united nearly every hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the showdown with Thanos and after a decade of films that proved to be an extensive roster. However, the Marvel Studios epic concluded with Thanos succeeding in his mission to acquire the Infinity Stones and use their power to erase half of the universe's population, with many of the aforementioned heroes being included among the casualties. Fortunately, the original Avengers teammates survived Thanos' decimation and it appears they will be joined by a few the new heroes who debuted since the group initially formed when they head into the second showdown with Thanos.

Iron ManAfter being spared by Thanos, Tony Stark can be seen adrift in space with limited supplies and oxygen. Although Nebula appears to be with him, the unlikely companions seem to be lost with little chance of being rescued, though it is hard to imagine that Stark will spend most of what could be his final adventure away from the action.
The First Avenger will unsurprisingly return for the conclusion of the first decade of Marvel Studios stories and he is determined to undo Thanos' decimation. Of course, many fans are concerned that reversing the decimation could come at a great cost for Captain America considering Chris Evans' contract expired with Avengers: Endgame.
Natasha Romanoff, a.k.a Black Widow, returns for Avengers: Endgame and it appears she's been assessing the consequences of Thanos' actions. Standing by Captain America's side as they head to attempt to reverse the decimation, Black Widow seems confident that their plan cannot fail.
Although Thor nearly defeated Thanos by stabbing through the chest with Stormbreaker, The Mad Titan had enough energy left to use the Infinity Stones to heal himself while erasing 50% of the population in the universe. Now, a contemplative Thor can be seen in the Avengers: Endgame trailer and one can't fault him for reflecting on the fact that victory was almost in his grasp.
Nebula and Rocket Raccoon were the only Guardians of the Galaxy characters to survive Thanos' wrath, with former being left alone on Titan with Tony Stark. With the film expected to conclude Thanos' and Nebula having more reason than most to see the Mad Titan brought to justice, fans are hoping she will have an extensive role Avengers: Endgame.
The new trailer also confirmed that Hawkeye will assume the Ronin mantle when he returns and the death of family is the likely reason for his new identity. It appears Natasha will attempt to recruit her old friend when they embark on a mission to defeat Thanos, but whether or not Hawkeye agreed to join them remains to be seen.
After the mid-credits scene for Ant-Man and the Wasp, many were theorizing that the Avengers would have to rescue Scott Lang from the Quantum Realm and subsequently use the alternate dimension to travel back in time to defeat Thanos. While it appears Scott Lang managed to escape on his own, he may have brought the van containing the way to the Quantum Realm to the Avengers' front door.
While the Hulk was absent from the first Avengers: Endgame trailer, Bruce Banner managed to make a brief appearance. The brilliant scientist could be seen assessing the list of casualties of Thanos' decimation and it has clearly taken an emotional toll.
