Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions have released their must-see TV spot to the highly anticipated comic book thriller, Glass, starring Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, and James McAvoy. Writer/director M. Night Shyamalan reunites the cast in the upcoming crossover of his popular films, Unbreakable, and Split.
Following the conclusion of Split, David Dunn [Wills] pursues Kevin Wendell Crumb [McAvoy]’s superhuman figure of The Beast. During their series of escalating encounters, the shadowy presence of Elijah Price [Jackson] emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.”
Here are 5 reasons we love the TV spot to Glass:
5) She Has A Secret!
As we previously mentioned, the trio appear to be receiving treatment from a psychiatrist played by Dr. Ellie Staple (Sarah Paulson). She’s amazed by the three, even thrilled by the way to meet them, but what are her true intentions? Admitting to her secret, Ellie wants to believe in the extraordinary, in superheroes.
4) The Comic Book!
Anya Taylor-Joy reprises her role as Casey Cooke, who continues to show kindness to Crumb. She appears to holding a comic book, which recreates a terrifying scene from Split. The comic is calling out to her!
3) The Bad Guys!
The loss of @TheRealStanLee is profound on so many levels. He was a voice for me as a child and an artistic inspiration as an adult. I never had the honor of meeting him and lavishing praise on him. Wish I did. R.I.P

Showing off his Lex Luthor prowess, Elijah (Jackson) has been biding his time, waiting for The Beast’s arrival. Elijah appears to be even manipulating the guard at the hospital. Has Elijah found a way to defeat David?
2) Macho Man!
I’s a big battle between David and Kevin aka The Beast. Is it just me or did James McAvoy fbluk up for his fight scene with Bruce Willis? The clothing looks a little tight on James McCoy’s muscles. Look at how he pounds his chest in the TV spot!
1) Are You Ready?
