Is Glass Really the End of M. Night Shyamalan's Superhero Universe? Let's Investigate

Is Glass Really the End of M. Night Shyamalan's Superhero Universe? Let's Investigate
Warning: big ol' spoilers for the ending of Glass below!

Well, folks, the final film in M. Night Shyamalan's Eastrail 177 Trilogy, Glass, has arrived, and we have a few questions. For instance, what in the world makes Casey (Anya Taylor-Joy) think hanging out with Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy) again would be a good idea? Why doesn't David (Bruce Willis) carry a snorkel with him at all times? And why, why oh why, did Sarah Paulson let someone dye her hair that particular shade of orange?!

Although we don't have the answers to those questions and likely never will, there is one thing that we can answer for you: is Glass actually the end of Shyamalan's trilogy or is another film in the works? At the moment, the director himself has asserted that yes, the Eastrail 177 series is done. For good.

Bow Down, Westeros - How Game of Thrones Has Been Prepping Sansa Stark to Be Queen All Along
When it comes to the kings and queens of Game of Thrones, it seems like everyone and their mother is gunning for the throne in some shape or form. We've seen three Baratheons (though one actually was king), four Lannisters, House Tyrell, and what I'm assuming was all of Dorne go down in the battle for the Iron Throne, and the only person who's made any progress is Cersei Lannister - and we all know that's not going to end well. Now that we're quickly approaching the final season, the question on everyone's mind - even the characters themselves - is who will finally claim the Iron Throne? The answer may have been under our noses all along: Sansa Stark.

Since her first introduction, Sansa's narrative centers on queenship. As a tween, she's preparing to be a southern princess and marry Prince Joffrey. She's admittedly at her worst during the beginning of season one,

Don't Worry - It's Not Hard to Spot M. Night Shyamalan's Cameo in Glass

Don't Worry - It's Not Hard to Spot M. Night Shyamalan's Cameo in Glass
Warning: a few light spoilers for Glass ahead!

Ready or not, Glass has finally arrived in theaters to leave you with fresh inspiration for your nightmares and another reason to avoid Philadelphia. But, while some moments of the sci-fi superhero film are unexpected to the point of being distracting, there's one element of M. Night Shyamalan's movie that we were expecting from the get-go: a cameo from the writer-director himself.

For whatever reason, Shyamalan has made it a point to appear in all of his films in some way or another. His appearances range from blink-and-you'll-miss-them cameos to full-on roles, like in Lady in the Water when he plays a writer who essentially brings about the messiah. From national park guards to doctors, he's played a number of small roles over the years. But in Glass, it shouldn't be hard to spot him whatsoever.

These Are Black Mirror's Best Episodes of All Time, Ranked
Black Mirror is the modern-day equivalent of The Twilight Zone, except darker, scarier, and of course, more bent on technology. With four well-received seasons under its belt, the British Netflix series has captured the zeitgeist of anxieties around the Information Age. The show is known for connecting its standalone stories through subtle Easter eggs in each installation, recently evidenced in its choose-your-own-adventure film Bandersnatch. Fans can't help but keep coming back for more, even though the show is made of the stuff of your tech-fueled nightmares.

Needless to say, many of its episodes have become pop culture icons, such as "San Junipero," which features an uplifting love story, and "Nosedive," which nods at the dark side of social media through an aggressively cheerful pastel color palette. Here, we've ranked the best Black Mirror episodes of all time - whether you want to rewatch the greatest hits to satisfy your pangs

Kim Kardashian Effectively Makes Peace With Taylor Swift by Listening to Her Music
Kim Kardashian has clearly moved on from the Taylor Swift drama. For those who don't have Snapchat or who don't follow the cosmetics mogul, a Taylor fan account on Twitter caught Kim jamming out to the pop star's hit song "Delicate." Putting things delicately (pun intended), the reality TV star is definitely sending a message to the singer or at least that's what fans think.
