From Unbreakable, Bruce Willis returns as David Dunn as does Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, known also by his pseudonym Mr. Glass. Joining from Split are James McAvoy, reprising his role as Kevin Wendell Crumb and the multiple identities who reside within, and Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast.
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.
Joining the all-star cast are Unbreakable’s Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard, who reprise their roles as Dunn’s son and Price’s mother, as well as Golden Globe Award winner Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story series).
“In a cinematic landscape drowning in superheroes, I’ve never seen anything quite like it.”
— David Sims, The Atlantic
“With his new film, Glass, [Shyamalan] concludes his grand essay on superheroes (and villains) and their place in American lore. In doing so, he makes an argument for reining in the fantastic spectacle of these juggernaut films, seeking a kind of superhero purity—one only he, of course, can truly realize.”
— Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair
