We need to see some DNA test results right now.
Listen to this article
Stranger Things fans are all saying the same thing about Eddie Munson (played by Joseph Quinn). Apparently, people have noticed that he bears a striking resemblance to a young Robert Downey Jr. and you won't be able to unsee it.
In May, Netflix gifted us with Stranger Things 4 after a three-year long wait. Volume 1 (Volume 2 is coming next month, btw!!!) introduced us to a menacing new threat to Hawkins, Vecna, and some new characters including Eddie Munson. Eddie is the head of Hellfire Club and a lover of Dungeons & Dragons, who finds himself stuck right in the middle of Vecna's antics.
Fans have been loving the character and there's one thing they won't stop mentioning… Eddie's resemblance to a young Robert Downey Jr. Yes, people are convinced he's the Iron Man actor's long lost son.

Another agreed, writing: "When are we going to discuss that Eddie from #StrangerThings4 looks like a young Robert Downey Jr and Steve looks like Brendan Fraser? Hello?!"
