We’ve got our first images of M. Night Shyamalan’s upcoming movie, Glass.
Last year fans were shocked when the ending of Split included a cameo from Bruce Willis reprising his role of David Dunn from the 2000 movie, Unbreakable. Unbreakable focused on David learning he is a superhero with the power to discover someone is going to commit a crime just by touching them. His mentor turned supervillain, Mr. Glass, played by Samuel L. Jackson, has extremely fragile bones. At the end of Split *SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS* when James McAvoy’s Kevin Wendell Crumb turns into The Horde and releases Anna Taylor-Joy’s Casey Cooke and it’s covered by the news, we are taken to a diner where diners compare The Horde to Mr. Glass, which Dunn offers the name.
Glass unites all four characters and these exclusive images from Entertainment Weekly give us a sneak peek into the upcoming movie.

In them, we see Mr. Glass, The Horde, and David Dunn in a psychiatric unit together receiving treatment from a doctor played by Sarah Paulson. M. Night Shyamalan had this to say about Paulson’s character.
She deals with people that think they’re comic-book characters…It’s kind of the modern-day equivalent of ‘I think I’m Jesus’ or ‘I’m an emperor.’ ”
Does this mean the characters don’t truly have powers as we believed? Or have they lost them?
We also get a peek at Casey Cooke visiting Kevin in the psych ward and seeming very affectionate towards him. Kevin as the Horde let her go because she had a pure heart so it’s possible she develops a sort of connection with him. She can also be seen standing behind Mr. Glass in one photo, so it’s possible that she joins team bad guys.
One thing I have to say about these images is that I love the use of color. The returning characters are surrounded and draped in bright colors while Paulson’s doctor is muted in grays. When it comes to Shamalayan, every image and decoration is key. So I’m tempted to assume the world the returning characters share is more adventurous and colorful while reality is mute.
Glass will hit the big screen in January 2019.
