Thor: Ragnarok to Be a "70s/80s Sci-Fi/Fantasy"
The Thor: Ragnarok logo has a decidedly retro vibe to it (seriously, it looks like something from Masters of the Universe), and it turns out there's a pretty awesome reason for that.

In a Reddit AMA, director Taika Waititi revealed that the logo is meant to reflect the old school style that the film has taken on. "The new logo suits the 70s/80s sci-fi fantasy that this film is becoming," he says. Given the current Stranger Things-fueled climate of '80s sci-fi, this certainly seems like a fun direction for the movie to take, and is just the latest piece of evidence that Ragnarok could be a surprisingly entertaining installment in the MCU.

Waititi also states that the film may be the craziest Marvel movie yet. "I think [Thor: Ragonarok] will be one of the most adventurous and most 'out there' of all the marvel movies," he says. "It's a crazy movie." And he shared that we'll see a changed for the better Thor in the movie, saying, " My favorite character is Thor. But not Thor from the previous films – Thor from Ragnarok. He's different and amazing."

So to sum up, we've got a crazy, retro sci-fi/fantasy with an improved Thor that's also a buddy road movie featuring the Hulk and co-stars Jeff Goldblum as an Elder of the Universe. Shut up and take my money, Marvel!
