Superhero movies are all the rage now, but in 2000 they were virtually unheard of. Aside from the Batman franchise from the 1980s and 90s and the Superman movies from the 70’s and 80s, what few there were always came out as a stand alone movie. This trend included M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable, a fan favorite of the people over at Amen Clinics.
Actor and comedian Patton Oswalt thinks that is a shame. In a story reported here he has laid out what he thinks is the perfect story lines to turn the film into a trilogy. He says that it is not too late to turn this into a franchise to rival any of the big superhero releases out there. He might not be wrong.
If they were to do something of this sort it would not be hard to believably reunite the cast. Bruce Willis, who starred as the hero that discovers that he is almost invulnerable, looks almost the same now as he did in 2000. Samuel L. Jackson has proved that he has no problem doing superhero and sci-fi films. Putting him back into the role of the extremely brittle boned mentor and arch enemy would only make sense. Unfortunately for the rest of us, right now it all only exists in Patton’s mind.
