In "Split", McAvoy played a kidnapper named Kevin Wendell Crumb with multiple personalities, including "The Beast", with superhuman strength. He revealed the film is called Glass, and that Bruce Willis (as David Dunn) and Samuel L. Jackson (as Mr. Glass/Elijah Price) will return.

"I got the news just like the audience". I'm very excited to see what Shyamalan can do with Glass. For almost 20 years, cinephiles have argued over the strengths and weaknesses of the writer/director's work, but the biggest twist yet came just this year with the release of Split, his latest feature effort.
