The Eye is an ancient and powerful organization that was introduced in the movie Now You See Me. It is a secret society made up of the most skilled magicians from around the world; illusionists, mentalists, escapists, psychics, hypnotists, card-trickers and mediums.
The Eye originated from ancient Egypt, where they used sleight of hand to fool the pharaohs and steal food from them to give to the slaves. Their stated purpose is to use magic and illusion to even the scales of justice. They were first introduced in the first movie "Now You See Me", and developed slightly more in "Now You See Me 2."
