Brief Synopsis:
Main Changes:
• Remove and much “Comic Book” exposition as possible
• Hide Dr. Staple’s POV and motives until Kevin is shot (to make her seem synonymous with the public view of these people)
• Remove Dr. Staple trying to work with Casey to save Kevin (the Black Clover Society simply plans to kill him)
• Keep the question about the validity of the Kevin and David’s superhero claims in question as long as possible
• Changed the ending to make Mr. Glass the cause of the worldwide video release
Intention:
Another movie I wanted to love.

But it wasn't nearly as good as Unbreakable, and the ending left a bad taste in my mouth.
Additional Notes:
I went into this movie with expectations for a super hero story about David Dunn taking on two super villains. That's not what this movie is about and the original feels like it takes a dump on that right away. Dr. Staple always seems like she had an ulterior motive, and the pacing felt like it was deflated of all suspense. So here we try to keep that suspense throughout the movie, using Dr. Staple as a stand-in for the public (and frankly rational) view of superheroes, and only reveal Dr. Staple's motives at the end, in true M. Night form. We also give power back to Mr. Glass in the end, letting him orchestrate the final video footage proof rather than hope others do. Mr. Glass himself truly wins in the end.
