M Night Shyamalan reveals awesome poster for Glass and teases SDCC surprise

June 30th, 2018 by Marc Comments

M Night Shyamalan pulled an almost unheard of trick last year when his latest movie, Split, shocked fans when it turned out in the dying second of the movie that it was a sequel of sorts to Unbreakable.

He then tipped fans over the edge when he revealed that Unbreakable and Split were to come together for a concluding movie in his superhero trilogy called Glass.

The new poster features Samuel L Jackson so Mr Glass in a wheelchair, James McCoy as The Horde in a chair and, most curious of all, Bruce Willis’ David Dunn apparently captured and chained to a chair… why is Dunn chained? Has he been arrested for something? What? More questions raised in the awesome poster.

I love that the reflections show their alter egos/true personalities.

And now the writer director has revealed a new poster (above) and has teased a ‘surprise’ as he and the cast will be in Hall H on July 20th at San Diego Comic Con.

Will we get a trailer? With the movie due next January, we reckon it’s not out of the question… but if that happens, we can only hope it will get an online debut minutes later for us poor Nerds who can’t fly halfway across the globe to be there.

Following the conclusion of Split, Glass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men. This riveting culmination of his worldwide blockbusters will be produced by Shyamalan and Jason Blum.

Glass will see the return of Bruce Willis (David Dunn), Samuel L. Jackson (Elijah Price), Spencer Treat Clark (Joseph Dunn) and Charlayne Woodard (Mrs. Price) from Unbreakable and James McAvoy (Kevin Wendell Crumb) and Anya Taylor-Joy (Casey Cooke) from Split, while Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story) is also set for a role. The film is slated to hit cinemas on January 19th 2019.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
