It's been less than 24 hours since the release of the new 'Stranger Things' trailer, but the wave of theories has already hit social media, and guess what else the trailer could be referencing.

First of all: look out for a bunch of spoilers ahead.

There is yet another interesting suggestion of a possible reference in the new 'Stranger Things' trailer, offered by a Spanish-language X-Men fan account on Twitter.

In one of the scenes in the trailer, Max is seen levitating. What if it is a reference to Jean Gray a.k.a. Phoenix, one of the characters in 'X-Men'? After all, the first episode of the Netflix beloved horror show is titled 'The Hellfire Club' – just like the group that frequently confronts X-Men in the eponymous comics.

However, it does not necessarily mean that the Duffer brothers are referencing that particular Hellfire Club.

Fans had their doubts about why Max – who was not known for having any kind of superpowers in season 3 – is even seen up in the air. Many already fear for her life, but others are also concerned that she might end up being a villain.
