Before the superhero genre was honed to a fine point by Batman Begins & The Dark Knight and then weaponized into unstoppable entertainment by Marvel Studios, it wasn't such a winner. M. Night Shyamalan saw that comic books had massive mythic appeal which could be made into great stories. So he invented his very own super villains & heroes in a very real world we could recognize.
I thought that Unbreakable was a one and done sort of experience. There was no open ending for a sequel. Sixteen years later came Split. This psychological horror movie seemed to be another stand alone until David Dunn appeared at the very end of it.
And now Glass is coming to unite all of these characters and make the the rest of us whole. With the years and years of meticulous, calculated crafting of the MCU, this feels organic and free of constraints. I'm ready to see what happens next.
