Cast and Characters
More to be added
The film is intended to spawn a trilogy of superhero films similar to the Eastrail 177 Trilogy.
- Trail was influenced to create this film after seeing the Eastrail 177 Trilogy films Unbreakable, Split, and Glass.
- The film's plot was originally conceived by Trail as a continuation of Glass, however, upon being added to the LMMCU Wiki, this was changed to merely be an inspiration of it.
- The film was originally planned to be set in the same universe as another Trail Blazer Studios film, Blitz. However, these plans were scrapped as Trail felt the films didn't work well together, with two other superhero films being developed alongside the film in collaboration with MilesRS677 and his company Marty McCorps. Trail initially gave the film to Miles on October 10th, 2019, however, on October 19th, 2019, Trail chose to abandon the partnership with Marty McCorps and pursued developing the film as a standalone project.
