Within the span of just a few films, M. Night Shyamalan went from being thought of as one of the most innovative and promising directors in Hollywood to being derided for movies such as Lady in the Water and Avatar: The Last Airbender, which failed to capture audience’s imaginations.

With his latest films Split and Glass, however, Shyamalan’s star has been on the rise again as he’s stealthily revealed himself to be the architect of one of the more fascinating superhero franchises out there.

Video: San Diego Comic-Con isn’t just about the panels. There are also a ton of cool pop-ups, special events and fun prizes for the con’s hundreds of thousands of attendees. Every year, advertisers spend millions of dollars to get fans excited about their films, shows or other cool stuff. When it’s done right, it can be a funny, cheeky or even introspective experience.

Though sometimes, it kind of sucks.

Sony brought the gorgeous-looking Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse to Comic-Con with news that Miles, Gwen, and Peter would be joined by even more Spider-heroes—but because the footage was never put online, we never got to see them. Thankfully Hasbro showed up with some upcoming action figures from the movie to make up for it.
