Glass Theory: James McAvoy's Split Character Was In Unbreakable All Along

Were there even more secrets hidden in Unbreakable than we thought?! Subscribe to our channel: /> James McAvoy is one of the most talented blockbuster actors working today. Throw him into a movie with Samuel L. Jackson and Bruce Willis, tied together with a storyline by M. Night Shyamalan and you have a recipe for success - as long as they bake this film just right. Well, we’re about to pull a Shyamalan and blow your mind. We guess you probably never thought that James McAvoy’s character from Split was in Unbreakable this whole time, but what if… HE WAS?? Join ScreenRant as we try to uncover a hidden theme lurking in the background of the shared universe of M. Night Shyamalan’s films. Shyamalan loves to throw twists into all of his movies. Now we know some are more successful than others - just check out the box office receipts and reviews to prove it. But what if he’s been pulling a long con all this time, slowly deceiving us by purposefully waiting many years between the releases of Unbreakable, Split and Glass. If this was his plan all along, to have a macro twist hidden among a series of films - that we didn’t even know were meant to even be a series until they were released - then M. Night have proven himself to be a master of the long con. As we look forward to the last installment of this unofficially titled “Eastrail 177” trilogy, let’s take a look back at the two films that set up the events of Glass and see if we can connect the dots between David Dunn, Elijah Price and Kevin Wendell Crumb.

Yeah this isn't a theory anymore. It was already confirmed before Glass by Shyamalan.
Marwan Joundi
Shyamalan was waiting for Mcavoy to get older so he could play Kevin, he predicted everything
Jordan Denny
This isn't your theory, it's been around for awhile, Shyamalan actually addressed it in an interview.
Joe V
Glass is a classic anti-villain, like Hunter Zolomon
Alan Caddie
This isn't a theory this is a fact 😂
Comix Hub
I loved Glass. Definitely one of my favourite movies
Hm, I always thought it was odd how Kevin lays flowers down near the trains in Split. I remember back in the day, M. Night mentioned Unbreakable was supposed to be a Trilogy and the names of the other two films was “Breakable” and “Broken”
Toy Insanity
Yeah and Lucas envisioned a trilogy of Star Wars trilogies back in 1959.
G Deck
First name Mr last name...GLASS
Who the hell makes these thumbnails lmaooooo
Malik Arran
Is or me or did Mr Glass' outfit get more elaborate and poofy in Glass?
ANdy Reacts
Yawn. M. Night already confirmed that. A bit late to create a "theory" about it.
jmar kedron
I got a feeling that mr. Glass is going to end up being Nick Fury🤔🤦🏾‍♂️
Brandon Simpson
F*@k the critics, Glass was awesome! They lack vision and imagination. This was a great mystery/action/dramatic triology.
So what ur saying is Sam L Jackson is Nick Fury and Mr. Glass 🤔
ReiMourr Power
That was clever with by and mother i Unbreakable; I sure as hell didn't recall that. And I hopr a new universe is opened up after Glass.
Minecraft Player
Cool theory! Can u do Endgame theory! 😉
Wanda Cardec
I thought he said there would be no more of these movies? I hope there will be!!!

My theory: During his nearly two decades in the institution, Mr. Glass somehow managed to discover the existence of the secret organization and converted some of it's members to his side.
Glass just didn't live up to the hype. Wasn't that good.
I'm beginning to wonder if Kacey has powers. In Glass they mention the comic where the villain was named something akin to The Whisperer. A villain who can manipulate the minds of those he chooses. What if there was a person that exists on the opposite end who can convince people to do things, but for good? It struck me very odd in Glass where Kacey is talking to Dr. Staple about the possibility of being able to talk to Kevin. Dr. Staple is very adamant that she should not and would not talk to Kevin. And what happens in the very next scene? You see Dr. Staple taking Kacey to go talk to Kevin! Kacey also had the ability to calm the Beast, to make him relinquish the light. She was ultimately able to let Kevin take hold of the light. Yes they are most likely two kindred souls who have gone through a lot of tragedy in their childhood(both lost a father and both were abused) so that may be most likely why she was able to get through to Kevin... however I still think it is fun to dream that Kacey has powers she is unaware of. The power of persuasion, manipulation. For good purposes. Just my thoughts!

Jim Butcher
He’d have been about six. Jesus.
Noah Heninger
Loved this trilogy. Haters gonna hate.
Terrence Summerour
He said it ain't over this was an origin story
Jayden Marvel
Wow you just blew my mind
Shagbark Sheriff
This is great and adds to the lore. Bravo
STP Productions
11:28 ...Well, David Dunn did have a son...Who's father was unjustly killed right in front of his eyes 😉
Justin Melecio
I thought if I sped up the spoiler I wouldn't hear the spoiler clearly. I have never failed so hard.
Mike Warnke
He was supposed to be.
The whole universe and movies are brilliant. M. Night created a fantastic story with these movies.
Kacey Kace
I'm just glad that the twist ending wasn't "everything after the laser lobotomy is a fantasy in Glass' mind as he undergoes the procedure."
Joycelyn Kerecz
Yeah.. it was a let down. I think he was sticking to that film budget. Sorry
Ale Fab
Sooo.. shortly after Crumb's father dies in the train crash, his mom takes him to the stadium, presumably to watch a game. Got it!
mel s.
James McAvoy is everything, everywhere
Prime Prince
Rah his son is gonna inherit the ability callling it
Kyle Patrick
That kid in the stadium was Kevin it's been confirmed by m night
Jordan Martinez
A better orgin story for split would be good
Media Maniac!
Shyamalan always intended to have Kevin in Unbreakable, but didn’t have the time to tell both stories, so that glimpse of him as an abused boy works. Glass as a finale? Not so much.
shane cholewa
Dang that was a bigger spoiler than I was expecting had to turn it off lol
Gnot a Gnoblin
Kevin krendell wumb
Victor dARKO
Hahah delete this video! He’s been in unbreakable. They already confirmed that
Lori Michelle
Brittani Jackson
.....positive Endgames
Charlie Stabile
The more days that go by, the more I find myself ok with the ending to Glass. Hell of a film.
Glass was amazing!
Giovanni P.
This is an old theory 😂
7:53 its been a long time.. we hear this from a friend.. especially watch in any movie.. true?
Thanks for taking the time to put this presentation together. It’s a good discussion, and I appreciate your hard work.
Tony Young
Hidden secrets? More like undeveloped plot points. We know metas exist, so we should have seen more at the end.
Sergio Rodriguez
João Pedro Auriemo
7:53 Mark Ruffalo in that one infinity war interview
Bryan Mason
At the end of Split, was David having a Peter Parker/Uncle Ben moment. He might have remembered those multiple voices in the boy after being bumped by the woman. And thought to himself, "All of this could've been avoided if I looked into his situation." With great power comes great responsibility.
James Moore
Kevin's father was on the train that mr. Glass derailed to find David Dunn
Nerds network
But like, who cares if it's just one scene? It will be cooler if there were more scenes
Ruben Coppoolse
This is not a theory, also Kevin would get this multiple persona later after his abuse. But that said, his father new about Kevin's DIS, this we learn in Glass.
ana silva
I think no one is paying attention to the girl that in the split movie keving/the beast let's it go... He says you are broken as well... He sees something in her..
Jon Marsh
you do not need to give us movie backstories or background info on the movies leading up to your point or theory. weve seen them all dude. weve seen the movies. learn when and how to edit your content in order to get straight too and deliver your point or subject.
Rorend Faye
Sixth Sense is actually purgatory after Mr. Glass.
Byron Kennedy
Ant Man was there too
Carlos Garza
Haha i knew it!
The boy wasn't a problem when he was young. David wasn't aware of him at he time.
Konrad Badowski
9:53 wtf its not a stadion
15 years pass between unbreakable and split, not 17. At the end of split some woman mentions mr glass and says it was 15 years ago.
Nathan Martinez
You dont need a spoil alert you already said most of happed in the movie
Austin Santiago-Edenfield
Glass trilogy is my favorite movies
WTF!!!!!! That was a super spoiler! If you haven't seen the movie, stop watching this video!
The huntress. Undetectable in split, embraces an animal/beast rythm. Casey might be back.
That makes total sense. You cracked the code!!!
You told spoilers before the spoiler alert
Glass was beautiful....
Joshua Kim
You just BLEW MY MIND.
The Twist!!!
lol what i thought the easter egg was that this”kids” mother is abusive just like Kevin’s mother she was abusive
bailin maxwell
Did someone say endgame?
Shawn Berry
There are no coincidences. If you look at the comic book mr. glass’s mom gave him in unbreakable, the characters resemble Dunn and Crumb in their personas. Great video!
Dave Adams
if this theory was right krumb should be in his twenties. macavoy is like 40. next
Josh Bermudez
Dont get caught up with the fact shyamalan created his universe before anyone else and he did the entire universe by himself
Alpha Wolf
Pedro Pizarro
WAKE UP!!!!!!!!! It’s not a theory.
Dahvon Colon
Glass was a great movie.
When i saw glass and they show that the theory is real i get so confused becasuse in that case, kevin wendell crumb is really younger than joseph dunn, joseph is aroun 31 years and kevin... 23 years or somethibg like that
Omar Carranza
Yeah he’s in unbreakable but he’s a kid
i live in philadelphia

It was SOOO bitter sweet this movie. I wanted at least something alluding to the organization more then Kevin in Unbreakable. I felt seeing David's dad moments before seeing Bruce at the end of Glass was enough. I'm OK with the Elijah n David connections for the trilogy. If only at the zoo at the end of SPLIT you see one car or one person with a damn CLOVER.
A little late on this one but cool vid/explanation.
Maria Soldi
But in glass Kevin said goodbye to his father before he entered the train and he was much older. And in that scene at the stadium the train incident already happened
Ramon Gonzalez
Ok first of all after watching this movie... I approve but could have had a slightly better ending. Now I don't believe this is the end, after seeing the ending sceneof the security video being leaked, we can expect a sequel. So I'll be patient enough and wait to see what M Knight has in-store for us!!!
Kevin Thai
This was all mentioned in the movie... Why is it a theory?
Tanja Buchholz
Glass said the events of this movie were an "origin story"...doesnt that mean there have to be sequels?
Eric Kutepow
It would have been awesome if Shyamalan made a connection between the unbreakable trilogy and the village through the Walker corporation. After all who is funding the black clover society?
Lohkie2_ _3
He didn't touch the boy he touched the mom so he would have seen what he did to the kid
Just Lewis
Why do you put a spoiler alert after you say Kevin's dad died in the Unbreakable train, which is revelaled in Glass?
I don't get it... He touched the mother not the kid... Did she have the same condition as her child?
Italo Ayala
Orange man bad
Old news lol
Dave Andersen
Well sorry about you but he was a kid during this time so no he wasn't.
Metro Customer
Nah he would b a really big kid
