Could This Power Rangers Star Play The New Wolverine?

If you’ve seen Stranger Things, which, let’s face it, you likely have, you’ve probably had the thought: “Hey, this is a bit like X-Men.” Apparently, that’s something which digital artist/uberfan Boss Logic seems to have thought of as well, as he’s now taken the similarity and run with it, creating a bunch of images that reimagine the cast of Netflix’s hit sci-fi show as Marvel heroes.

Last week, he began with the obvious mash-up of Millie Bobby Brown’s Eleven and Jean Grey Aka Phoenix, two hugely powerful telepaths. Other efforts are slightly more out there, but no less fun. In the gallery down below you’ll see, Mike (Finn Wolfhard) as Cyclops, Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) as Beast, Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) as Cable, Bob (Sean Astin) as Colossus, Joyce (Winona Ryder) as Mystique, Max (Sadie Sink) as Emma Frost, Jonathan (Charlie Heaton) as

Kali may return for Stranger Things Season 3, says co-creator Matt Duffer

Stranger Things season 2 was very well-received all around, but there was one particular episode of the season that was not so adored. Reviled, one could say. Entire articles were dedicated to it, with words like “embarrassing” not uncommon to read. That episode was “The Lost Sister”, and it’s been trashed so heavily by viewers that The Duffer Brothers actually had to go on record to defend it.

Now, was it that bad? Depends on who you ask. But one thing is for certain: that plot-line isn’t going anywhere. At the Vulture Film Festival, Matt Duffer talked a little about Kali, Jane’s — a.k.a. Eleven’s — “sister”. Will she show up in Season 3? Here’s what he said (via Deadline):

“It feels weird to me that we wouldn’t solve [Kali’s] storyline. I would say chances are very high she comes back… We are [in] very early days

‘Stranger Things’ Season 3: ‘Chances Are High’ Kali Will Be Back
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “Stranger Things” Season 2.]

Eleven’s sister may make Season 3 of “Stranger Things” a sibling affair. At the “Stranger Things: Inside the Upside Down” panel at Vulture Festival in Los Angeles on Saturday, the cast and crew of the Netflix series were on hand to reveal behind-the-scenes info from Season 2 and tease what might lie ahead.

In particular, brothers Matt and Ross Duffer revealed that Kali (Linnea Berthelsen) will most likely return for Season 3. “It would feel weird that we would’n’t resolve that storyline,” said Matt Duffer. “Chances are high that she comes back.”

Ross Duffer added, “We’re in very early days of Season 3… That’s not an official announcement.”

In the second season, “Chapter 7: The Lost Sister” was one of the most divisive episodes among fans and critics alike because it was a standalone adventure that took place outside of the action of Hawkins, Indiana. Even IndieWire’s

This ‘Stranger Things 2’ Detail Provides More Insight into Hopper and Eleven’s Relationship
The first season of Netflix’s Stranger Things ends with Chief Jim Hopper (David Harbour) leaving some Eggos in a box in the woods. The implication: he’s the only person who knows Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) survived her battle with the Demogorgon, and that’s going to factor into season 2 in a big way. Those two characters have […]

‘Stranger Things’ Season 3: What to Fix When the Show Returns to Hawkins
The Duffer Brothers brought a bigger, cinematic feeling to “Stranger Things” in its second season, but that also meant that some characters were given the short shrift when it came to meaty storylines and development. While Steve (Joe Keery) became the unlikely hero of the new season and Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) became the standout among the boys, the rest were less defined. Fortunately, the Duffers told IndieWire that they were already planning on focusing on more character-based stories in Season 3. Below are a few suggestions for what we’d like to see when the show returns to Hawkins, Indiana.

I Have a Crazy Theory About Hopper's Daughter on Stranger Things

  • BuzzSugar
In the wake of Stranger Things's second season, we've had quite a bit of time to ruminate on everything we witnessed. Of course, it's natural to wonder when season three will be released, and it's even more natural to wonder what will happen as the story moves forward. Will Eleven's "sister" Kali be back? Are Dustin and Hopper Ok? Is Dr. Brenner alive? While there are plenty of obvious questions, there's actually a much less obvious predicament nestled under our noses. We're talking about Hopper's presumably dead daughter, Sara. Yeah. You read that right. Presumably! As a refresher, Hopper talks about losing his daughter in the season one finale. We watch her death in a series of flashbacks: first, she has some kind of panic attack or breathing problem at the park. Later, she's in a hospital bed, completely bald, while Hopper reads her a book. Next thing we know,

Awesome Fan Art Reimagines Stranger Things Cast As X-Men Characters

If you’ve seen Stranger Things, which, let’s face it, you likely have, you’ve probably had the thought: “Hey, this is a bit like X-Men.” Apparently, that’s something which digital artist/uberfan Boss Logic seems to have thought of as well, as he’s now taken the similarity and run with it, creating a couple of images that reimagine the kids of Netflix’s hit sci-fi show as Marvel heroes.

Unsurprisingly, one picture sees Eleven merged with Jean Grey/Phoenix, as there’s a lot of crossover between the two characters. For instance, both struggle to control their growing telekinetic abilities but could be hugely powerful if they let go. In Stranger Things season 2, for example, Eleven managed to close the gate to the Upside Down, even levitating off the ground in the process. It recalled a similar moment when Jean unleashed her powers in 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse.

Stranger Things’ David Harbour on Hopper and Joyce Byers getting together: “We’ll have to see where that goes”

Ever since Stranger Things Season 2 released last month, the internet has been busy “shipping” series mainstays Sheriff Jim Hopper (David Harbour), and Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder). The potential for a relationship has been present since season 1, but the introduction of alpha-male Bob Newby as Joyce’s love interest put that romance to rest. For now. What does actor David Harbour think about Hopper, and Joyce getting together in future seasons? Chatting with Variety, the actor shared his thoughts:

“These are two lost, broken people who need each other but are so prideful and messed up that they’ll never admit it. It’s great to allow that to play out over several seasons…I don’t know that ultimately they’re quite right for each other. Talk about problems! If Eleven is difficult, imagine him and Joyce. There would be nightmare fights! Him being prideful and emotionally shut down and unavailable.

Before He Was Will, This Stranger Things Star Voiced an Iconic Character

  • BuzzSugar
One of the best things about the Stranger Things cast is that most of the stars are (relatively) fresh faces. We're not talking about the adults. After all, Winona Ryder is an icon, David Harbour has been in a ton of things, Sean Astin is an '80s and fantasy legend, and the list goes on. But the teens and kids have much smaller acting histories. Natalia Dyer only has a handful of titles to her name, and for stars like Charlie Heaton, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, and newcomer Dacre Montgomery, Stranger Things is more of a breakout role. The same goes for our beloved "zombie boy" Will Byers, played by Noah Schnapp. RelatedYou Can See the Stranger Things Cast in Other Things Before Next Season Aside from Stranger Things, Schnapp only has one other feature-length film in his history: Bridge of Spies, the 2015 drama starring Tom Hanks.

The Duffer Brothers on whether we will see Dr. Brenner return in future seasons of Stranger Things

There’s an old rule in television stating that if you don’t see someone die on screen, then they aren’t dead. Now, there are always examples to the contrary, but still, this is a pretty safe bet when it comes to TV. Take Matthew Modine’s Dr. Brenner from Season 1 of Stranger Things, for example. We can assume that he’s dead, but we did not explicitly see it. In fact, if you have finished Season 2 of the hit Netflix series, you will know that his fate is very much up in the air.

So what do Stranger Things creators Matt, and Ross Duffer have to say on the matter? While attending a master-class event at Chapman University, The Duffer Brothers were asked about the fate of the Season 1 antagonist, to which they replied (via Cinemablend):

“I think we’ll leave Brenner’s fate, you know…We wanted to hint at that,

Sean Astin originally auditioned for a different part in Stranger Things season 2

Sean Astin read for a part other than Bob when he auditioned for Stranger Things season 2.

Bob, a character played by Astin in season 2 of the hit sci-fi Netflix series, has quickly become a fan favourite thanks to his heroic antics, polite sensibility, lame jokes, and overall likeability.

But Astin actually auditioned for another role, only to be given the part of Bob because of how suited he was for the character.

Astin read for the part of Murray Bauman, the conspiracy theorist who helps the kids get the word out about the experiments and cover ups happening in their town.

“I got a call right away saying they thought it was fantastic, but they actually think you’re more right for another character, Bob,” he told Variety. “I went back the next day and auditioned again for 10 minutes, and then I got a call saying they loved me for it.

[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from the first two seasons of “Stranger Things.”]

Stranger Things” isn’t afraid to kill off certain expendable characters, but in Season 2, the show almost bumped off one beloved person even earlier. While fans were horrified to see nerdy good guy Bob (Sean Astin) become a snack for a pack of hungry demodogs in the penultimate episode, the Duffer Brothers had actually considered a different storyline in which he would’ve died much earlier… and at the hands of someone he knew.

On the Netflix after-show “Beyond Stranger Things,” the Duffers revealed that originally, Will Byers (Noah Schnapps) was going to become gradually evil as he was possessed, be fully evil by Episode 4, and then kill someone midway through the season.

Stranger Things creators talk season 3 plot, and what may carry over from the current season

Stranger Things 2 is officially on Netflix, and while the wait was excruciating, this season has ended up being sweeter than a Three Musketeers bar. There has been several days to finish the season a this point, and while many are waiting for that nostalgia buzz to wear off, thoughts may naturally shift to Season 3. What’s it going to look like? There was a hint of something at the end of this current season, but that’s all. Talking to Slashfilm, The Duffer Brothers themselves talked a bit about their decision to include that tease:

“There were discussions about that, but then we went, ‘Nah, we have to hint at what’s to come.’ The hope we wanted people to get out of it is that this thing [is still out there]. They’ve shut the door on the Mind Flayer, but not only is it still there in the Upside Down, it

Stranger Things Season Two Stays Strong (Spoilers)

  • Cinelinx
The critically lauded Netflix web-series Stranger Things has returned for a second season and it’s an entertainingly odd sophomore year. Most of the first-year cast is back, along with a few newbies, as the town of Hawkins, Indiana faces more Domogorgons from the Upside-Down. Beware of spoilers.

Many shows that have such a popular first season often start to drop in quality during the second year. Fans will be glad to know that the second season of Stranger Things is just as good as the first. Better in some ways, worse in others, but overall, on the same level, which is good. Since fan expectations were higher this year than they were when the show started, it’s a relief that they didn’t drop the ball. The Spielberg/Steven King quality is still there, and the continuity from year one is good, without rehashing too much.

Spoilers ahead…

How 'Stranger Things' Accidentally Became a Great Teen TV Show
Maybe you tuned in for the nostalgia factor, basking in the way a half-decade's worth of pop-cultural raw material and fortysomething geek touchstones were deftly turned into an I-Heart-the-'80s mixtape. Maybe you dug the way the first season mined an old-fashioned thrills-spills-chills feeling that left the multiplex eons ago. Maybe you were just curious to see what happened next in this oddball story of psychic kids, government spooks, bad scientists, mirror-image dimensions, monsters and a magnificently stressed-out Winona Ryder.
