Stranger Things Season 4 Poster Has Vecna Watching Over Our Favorite Characters

Posted 2022/05/13 3 0

The core cast of Stranger Things Season 4 are being ominously watched over by mysterious new villain Vecna in the latest poster. Released via social media, the poster continues the series’ penchant for paying homage to movies of the 1980s in its design, with the fourth season of the hit Netflix show due to land on the streaming platform later this month.

“*screams in demogorgon*,” a caption alongside the latest, and likely last poster before Stranger Things Season 4 begins. “THE WAIT IS ALMOST OVER. Vol 1 May 27.” The promo paints a picture of the main cast of characters from Stranger Things, all of whom will be familiar to fans of the show. At the top are the main gang of kids including Finn Wolfhard as Mike Wheeler, Gaten Matarazzo as Dustin Henderson, Caleb McLaughlin as Lucas Sinclair, Noah Schnapp as Will Byers, and Sadie Sink as Max Mayfield, who appears to have either gained powers or been possessed based on the recent trailer.

Taking the top spot on the poster though is Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven, who has been transformed back into the short-haired version of the character from the very first season of Stranger Things. Season 4 is expected to further explore Eleven’s past, which could explain the look. Or will Eleven be taken back into a laboratory for experimentation?

As well as showing the rest of the large ensemble cast, including David Harbour as Jim Hopper, Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers, and Joe Keery as Steve Harrington, among others, the poster also puts at its center an eerie looking house, the Creel House, that is very reminiscent of the one inhabited by Pennywise in IT. No doubt the Stephen King tale will serve as inspiration for some of Stranger Things Season 4.

The Latest Stranger Things Villain Could Have Ties to Eleven

Overlooking all of this are the cold, blue eyes of Vecna, the latest villain from The Upside Down, who comes to Hawkins to cause all manner of chaos and nightmares. While the character remains largely a mystery at present, there are several clues that we can decipher from just the name, which once again borrows from Dungeons & Dragons.

Regarded as one of the greatest villains in the table-top game, Vecna was born human and was one of the members of the “untouchable caste in the Flan city of Fleeth on Oerth.” Trained by his mother in the art of magic, Vecna vowed revenge after his mother was executed for practicing witchcraft. In the name of vengeance, Vecna turned to the dark arts, mastering them more than anyone had before. So, if Stranger Things’ Vecna is in any way comparable to its source, they will be a formidable force indeed.

Rumors have since emerged that Vecna could have ties to Eleven, with the character perhaps being the number 1 to Eleven’s number 11, and thus the first subject experimented on at Hawkins Laboratory. Considering that season 4 is expected to delve into Eleven’s past, and with Matthew Modine due to reprise the role of scientist Martin Brenner, it stands to reason that we may go back even further to the origins of One.

Stranger Things Season 4 will be released in two parts, with the first volume set to premiere on Netflix on May 27, 2022. The second volume will be released five weeks later on July 1, 2022.
