During the AMA, Waititi was asked about the 1980s-style logo, which debuted at San Diego Comic-Con. He said the new logo was inspired by 1970s and 1980s sci fi fantasy art, “because our film feels like that.” Waititi also confirmed that audiences can expect a 1980s vibe from the film, “and more.”
“I think [Thor: Ragnarok] will be one of the most adventurous and most ‘out there’ of all the Marvel movies. It’s a crazy movie,” Waititi said.
After the logo first debuted, and the fact that it was teased as an intergalactic road trip, audiences speculated whether the film would take on a lighter, weirder tone than its predecessors. All signs point to an absolute yes. Waititi said in the AMA that he basically did what he wanted with the film, praising Marvel’s decision to give him massive creative freedom, and jokingly added that he didn’t even bother trying to make the movie fit in with the larger MCU.
Waititi added that he expects Bruce Banner to be the breakout star of the film, which is exciting news, considering we haven’t had a solo film starring Mark Ruffalo’s turn as The Hulk.
I’m officially excited for this now.
