Are M. Night Shyamalan movies related? The director talks about Shyamalanverse!

For years, it was speculated that director M. Night Shyamalan’s films could be connected or exist in the same universe as the MCU and DCEU.

Speculation increased when Shyamalan made a cross between “Closed Body” and “Fragmented” in the thriller “Glass”.

But is a Shyamalanverse possible?

In an EXCLUSIVE interview with CinePOP to promote his new thriller, ‘Tempo’ (Old), Shyamalan explained that he has no interest in connecting his films – although they may exist in the same universe.

“I have to see these films as completely different experiences. In order for me to be excited, I need to think about new things in theaters. I want to introduce new things as a human being. A connected universe seems strange, but all of my films are anchored in some sort of reality. In some ways, they can exist in the same universe. But I don’t want to carry the weight of getting the Tempo characters to face an alien invasion in ‘Signs’ 10 years ago. I don’t want this burden to be on the characters. “, did he declare.
