In a year where Captain Marvel, Shazam!, Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Joker, and many other big blockbusters are hitting, it’d be easy to forget about IT: Chapter 2. Sure, the first film managed to take in over $700 million, but given that it’s still several months away (and it doesn’t have a bunch of other related films constantly pushing it into the news cycle), it’s not a film that’s being shoved in our faces constantly…but it is coming!

The first IT saw the Losers Club in the midst of adolescence when they took on Pennywise the Dancing Clown, and Chapter 2 will see them decades later. The cast that makes up these characters have long since been revealed by the studio, but other than some random set photos, we’ve had no official ones yet…until now. Director Andy Muschietti took to Instagram to share James McAvoy as Bill Denbrough, who was played by Jaeden Lieberher as a kid in the first one.

Here’s what Muschietti said in the post:

“And a happy belated birthday to the great @jamesmcavoyrealdeal who will thrust his f-f-fists against anything that moves in September 6 #billdenbrough #itchapter2”

Yeah, I know, there’s not a lot there to dissect. It’s just James McAvoy riding a bike. It’s a pretty solid uncanniness though, and with McAvoy being such a good actor, no one is really complaining. At least I’m not. What do you think of the new photo? Let us know your thoughts down below!
