Now that it is confirmed that Will Byers, played by Noah Schnapp (@noahschnapp), secretly loves Mike Wheeler, played by Finn Wolfhard (@finnwolfhardofficial), what about the chances of Mike loving Will back? Is Mike gay or bi? Well, it's clear.
Will is unlucky, as far as we've witnessed, because Mike is in a relationship with Eleven. He is clearly not gay or bi. We have witnessed Mike and Will grow before our eyes, going from playing Dungeons and Dragons in the basement to fighting with others to defend their town. And as they grow, just like other guys, they begin to draw people's attention.
Mike is busy with Eleven and his affections for her by the end of Stranger Things Season 4, leaving Will to mourn for him alone. Even though it is horrible to watch this happen in the series, it happens frequently in reality. And Will's suffering in the series is only getting started. Let's get to know more about Mike's relationship with Eleven now.
Mike Wheeler and Eleven fell for each other when they were young, but as they grew older, their friendship only became more complicated. When the mysterious, Eggo-loving Eleven arrived in Hawkins, Indiana, her quick bond with Mike kept his relationships with Dustin and Lucas in doubt. However, as the boys understand that Eleven just has their best interests in mind, they change their minds and extend an invitation for her to join their group.
However, Eleven moved to California with Will, Jonathan, and Joyce after the presumed passing of her father, Jim Hopper, just as Mike and Eleven's romance began to blossom. Eleven ultimately began to think that Mike no longer loved her despite their efforts to make their relationship work via distance. However, in the latest finale of the latest season, we see that the couple does feel and care for each other.
“We’ve grown up together. We’ve done this for nearly seven years. And it almost is like a relationship that we always come back to after however long we’re filming. And we’re like, ‘OK, this is where the characters are now. We can grow and do the scenes together.’ … It’s been really nice doing it with the same person for that long.”
Similarly, some Reddit users wanted to know if Finn Wolfhard is gay in real life and has a boyfriend. Well, he doesn't. Finn, previously, declared on his Instagram (now deleted) that he was dating his girlfriend, Elsie Richter. The couple was spotted together multiple times. While the couple has remained silent about their relationship, we can at least assume that Mike Wheeler actor is not gay in real life.
