James McAvoy has given personality to the Comic-Con of San Diego – to be precise. On a Friday comic-con album, Universal released the trailer for "Glass," the sequel to "Split" from 2016 with McAvoy as Kevin Wendell Crumb, who uses various people to kidnap women.
In "Glass" Sarah Paulson debuts in the "Unbreakable" series as Dr. Ellie Staple, a psychologist who studies people who think they are superheroes. Bruce Willis repeats his role of "Unbreakable" as a superhuman guard David Dunn, and Samuel L. Jackson returns as Elijah Price – two of Dr. Ing. Ellie's patient, along with Wendell.
"You three have convinced yourself that you have extraordinary gifts like something out of a comic," Dr. Staple to her subjects. Much of the trailer sees McAvoy's chameleon character taking on the mannerisms of various people. Sometimes he's a woman called Patricia, sometimes he's a nervous man or a predator called Beast.
Meanwhile, Jackson's character has assumed a new identity as Mr. Glass, a man with a fragile bone structure but extraordinary intelligence.
This is not a cartoon, "says Jackson's voiceover," this is the real world. And yet some of us still do not die with bullets. Some of us can still bend steel. I was waiting for the world to see that we exist. Ms. Night Shyamalan returned and wrote the third movie in the "Unbreakable" series, while others resuming their roles for the latest installment of the saga are Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, Spencer Treat Clark Joseph Dunn and Charlayne Woodard as Elijah's Mother.
The "Glass" comic-con panel ran along with the presentation for another upcoming sequel, "Halloween," starring Judy Greer and Jamie Lee Curtis In theaters in 2019.
