Glass is set to close M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘Eastrail 177’ trilogy, following in the footsteps of Unbreakable and Split. Fans didn’t even know they were getting an Unbreakable sequel until the final moments of Split when it was revealed that it was the same world of grounded-reality superheroes and supervillains.
After that shock reveal, audiences at least now know that they are getting a sequel to both Unbreakable and Split in Glass. Bringing together Elijah Price/Mr Glass (Samuel L. Jackson), David Dunn (Bruce Willis), and Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy), Glass is a crossover movie that could be the anti-Avengers, and you can get the full story on it in the latest issue of our sister publication Total Film magazine. The new issue features exclusive interviews with director M. Night Shyamalan and cast members including Jackson, McAvoy, Willis, Sarah Paulson, and Anya Taylor-Joy.
On shelves from November 16, the new issue also features an exclusive look at Creed 2, the lowdown on Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, a new look at Bumblebee, and interviews with Joel Edgerton, John C. Reilly, Steve Coogan, Timothée Chalamet, Steve Carell, and many more.
