Richie Has a Secret in 'IT Chapter 2' and Pennywise Knows What It Is (SPOILERS!)

By

The highly anticipated IT Chapter 2 is going beyond the Stephen King book. The sequel comes two years after the 2017 adaptation of the novel that starred Bill Skarsgard as Pennywise, a character who taunted a group of kids known as the "Losers Club." The sequel takes place about 30 years later, and the kids are all grown up, and still dealing with Pennywise's cruelty.

One of the biggest variations in the film from the book edition is (SPOILER) a diversion in character Richie Tozier's sexuality. Played by Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things) in the first film, Richie is played by Bill Hader in the sequel, and his character has gone through a lot in the years since. Is Richie gay in IT Chapter 2? Details on the secret the character has throughout the film, and how Pennywise tries to use it against him.
