Who Is Vecna? 'Stranger Things' Fans Think They Found The Answer In The Trailer (No, It's Not Billy)

Finally – a Stranger Things monster that can talk! After the Stranger Things season 4 trailer dropped, fans couldn't help but speculate on this season's big bad, Vecna. While everyone was talking about the new Freddy Krueger-like villain, Redditor u/andrewp317 was deciphering a code hidden in one of the frames from the trailer. It was only shown for a split second, but the fans are already using this to validate their theories on Vecna's origins.

    Here is where it gets cool. If you overlay the 1:59 frame with each of the other frames there is a secret message that appears in the white spaces.
