From "Stranger Things" superstar to Marvel superhero?
The stars of "Stranger Things" received a pay bump for the latest season, and some are making more in one episode than the average American does in a year. The sports brand and Netflix collaborated on a special Stranger Things Three sneaker edition so the fans can be "stranger" head to toe. It also gives everything a sense of momentum that's been missing all season: from the Ice Cream Team's discovery of a secret Russian bunker under the mall, to the reveal of The Mind Flayer's growing shadow army, it feels like Stranger Things 3 is done playing coy, offering a number of connective threads between its mosaic of plot threads.
Season two of Stranger Things saw Eleven (played by Millie Bobby Brown) going on an adventure where she met another girl like her with superpowers called Kali Prasad (Linnea Berthelsen). We don't know a lot, but we do know a lot of the big broad strokes.... that's sort of where we are in season four. We don't want to know too much about the new season! After a disastrous second season, we return to Hawkins for the summer of 1985 and catch up with all the members of the gang.
"We view these figures as notably positive given the potential to drive gross sub additions both at the end of 2Q19 and into 3Q19 on the back of arguably NFLX's highest-profile show", Cowen & Co.'s internet and new media analyst team wrote in a research note released on Tuesday according to Variety.
"That being said, not all of Stranger Things" cheeky nods and references to the past are obvious - or even noticeable enough to catch (especially for those of us who weren't even alive at that point in time).
He said: "The biggest thing that's going to happen is it will open up a little bit... in terms of allowing portals into areas outside of Hawkins". Smartly, "The Sauna Test" takes its time developing the big scene, which finally explodes in an exciting crescendo of action, when the possessed Billy breaks out and El steps in to fight him. Hopefully, if season 4 does take place (and it very well should) that will be one of the things explored.
