Despite the disappointing expectations from the fans, the film had a promising start. While talking to The Italian Reve, the 29-year-old revealed that he “had to put on a little bit of weight” for the role. The British actor further went on to credit the beauty of the movie to the “supreme trusthe had in his costar, Saura Lightfoot Leon, and considered himself “very lucky.”

Hoard is a drama that will make the audience uncomfortable with its complex portrayal of characters. As per the critical review of Screen International, “however uncomfortable it might turn out to be… It’s a demanding watch”.

It is not just fans who are praying for the Hellfire club leader to make a comeback in the franchise. The actor himself had a discussion with Joe Keery about a plot for his character’s return, reported by Radio Times. The Stranger Things stars wanted Eddie to appear intermittently in the series through Dustin’s imagination. This was the same way Billy, played by Dacre Montgomery, returned in Season 4 through Max’s imagination.

If the time travel theory has any truth to it, fans might have a realistic return of the character in the series. The time travel theory suggests that the rift created by the destruction of gates in the upside-down could make time travel possible. And if that happens, the Hawkins saviors might be able to travel back in time and prevent the Satanic Panic mob from ruining their mission, saving Max. This would ultimately also prevent Eddie Munson’s death, spreading joy far and wide.
