When the logo for Thor: Ragnarok was first revealed, most fans were confused by the 1980s-inspired visual aesthetic. Since then, set photos have made it clear that the movie has taken cues from the artwork of Walt Simonson, but now some changes have been made it seems, bringing it more in line with the amazingly trippy 1960s artwork by Jack Kirby that’s also featured on the T-shirt down below.
It’s been apparent for a while now that Thor: Ragnarok stands a chance of being Marvel’s most unique movie to date, from a visual standpoint at least, and it honestly wouldn’t be remotely surprising to see it feature a device similar to the one highlighted by the art department in the photo below. What exactly it is is hard to say, but if you think you know, feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section.
With the highly anticipated threequel set to take place on Earth, Asgard, and a gladiatorial arena where the God of Thunder will come to blows with the Hulk, Thor: Ragnarok looks set to show us a whole new side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and we couldn’t be more excited to see what’s been cooked up here. It’s no secret that both Thor and Thor: The Dark World were slightly underwhelming, so there’s a particularly large amount of pressure on this one to deliver. From everything we’ve heard so far though, we’re feeling pretty confident that it can.
Circling back to this new image, and it seems as if Marvel Studios has been updating a lot of their logos recently – Avengers: Infinity War may even have a new moniker and Black Panther‘s title card also has a new look – and as these movies all get closer to release, you can expect to see a whole lot more from them.
Thor: Ragnarok will smash its way into theaters on November 3rd and as we learned earlier today, will feature a cameo from director Taika Waititi.
