Unbreakable (2000)

Buena Vista Pictures Distributution

M. Night Shyamalan did something very fun and ambitious with his follow-up to his breakthrough The Sixth Sense: He told a superhero story that wasn’t based on any previous intellectual property. Instead, it offered a dark, grounded take on the typical superhero origin story in which David Dunn (Bruce Willis) becomes a very reluctant superhero.

After surviving a train crash with no injuries, Dunn confronts the possibility that he just may be superpowered, whether he wants to be or not. Soon comic-shop owner Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson) guides him through the rules of superhero stories — but Price is not what he seems.

Jackson, a big comics fan, of course went on to anchor the MCU as Nick Fury.
