View Full Version : Write your own scene for The Dark Knight Sequel!
07-22-2008, 11:03 PM
A while back there was a similar thread made for The Dark Knight where you could write a fan scene that you would like to see included in the next Batman film. I thought that thread was a ton of fun, and since The Dark Knight is now out in theaters, speculation has begun about the third Nolan film. I thought it would be fun to start a similar thread, but this time writing scenes for The Dark Knight sequel, and since no villain has officially been announced, and neither has the film, you are free to write the scene based around any villain or scenario. In order to show what I'm talking about, I'll start with a scene I just quickly came up with.
EXT. APARTMENT COMPLEX - NIGHT
COP CARS are swarming around the rundown apartment complex. The complex is cut off with POLICE TAPE. Surrounding the crime scene is a swarm of cops, some actually doing some investigating, others chatting up gawking civilians on the sidewalk. A CAR rolls up on the street in front of the complex. Out of the car emerges a middle-aged man, hair graying, with a thick mustache and horn-rimmed glasses, this man is no other than COMMISSIONER GORDON. Gordon looks the building up-and-down.
Gordon wheels around to see the source of the voice, an overweight man with unkempt black hair, pinned beneath a battered gray fedora; this man is DETECTIVE HARVEY BULLOCK.
Bullock approaches Gordon's side.
Evening Bullock! What's the situation?
Two men stabbed to death, both employees of Wayne Enterprises. They were found by their landlord, who claims that he heard shouts emitting from the apartment late at night. He went to their door to shut them up, but when no one answered he forced his way in, and that's when he found them, along with THIS. It looks as if it's the same weirdo as before.
Bullock hands Gordon a BLOOD STAINED PIECE of PAPER inside an EVIDENCE BAG. Gordon surveys the page to find scribbled upon it the writing, " A FOX treads upon a delicate magnolia. A simple boy, CRUSHED, grows to become a hunter. Amidst the forest the FOX runs, but nowhere can the PRAY hide." .
Is the landlord still in custody?
What type of cop do ya think I am commish?
Gordon gives him a scathing look.
Don't answer that.
Take the landlord back to MCU for further questioning.
Be my pleasure!
Bullock begins to strut off towards the commotion in front of the apartment complex.
But there is to be no interrogation till I arrive, ya understand Bullock?
Bullock turns and looks at Gordon indifferently, and swats his arm at thin air.
I mean it!
Gordon, with the page encased in the evidence bag still clutched firmly in his hand, walks off towards.....
EXT. ALLEY - NIGHT
an alley on the side opposite the apartment complex. Gordon pauses underneath a FIRE ESCAPE.
You know these rendezvous used to be a heck of a lot easier.
A FIGURE, cloaked in shadow, shuffles along the fire escape above Gordon. A brief flash of light, from a car driving by on the adjacent road, reveals the figure to be the BATMAN.
Is it him?
Seems to be. He left another clue, but it's gibberish, just like the others.
Gordon slips the piece of paper through the grates of the fire escape. Batman scoops up the page and begins to scan it.
I tell ya, a sociopath who deals through riddles is almost as bad as one who blatantly tells ya his next move. It's almost as if he wants to get caught, but knows that he wont. What can you make of it?
Seems to be the same as the last. Looks to be another threat on Lucius Fox's life.
Did ya check the Wayne Enterprises databases for any recently laid off workers who may have felt they were wronged in any way?
Wayne and Fox both recently laid off countless workers as a result of the drop in the stock market. The list was many, each as unlikely as the next.
So who could this Riddler be?
As I said, the list of suspects goes on.
Do ya still think it's a former Wayne employee?
Possibly, but it-
What is it?
This riddle. The words "PRAY" and "CRUSHED", they're both in complete capitalization, just like the word "FOX". It's as if he is drawing emphasis to these three words. Fox obviously means Lucius, but the words crushed and pray, they must relate in some way to how and where he plans to attempt and murder Fox. Crushed is simple, but pray, it is used within the sentence as in a hunter hunting his prey, but is spelt with an 'A' instead of an 'E', so that makes it pray like a prayer.
So what's it mean?
It means that the Riddler has just told us where he plans to kill Lucius.
Batman slips the piece of paper back down through the bottom of the fire escape to Gordon.
Notice the word "magnolia", it's underlined. The Riddler is referring to the St. John's Cathedral on Magnolia Avenue.
That's where the wake for Reese is being held, this very evening! A man like Lucius wouldn't miss an employee's wake.
Gordon looks up to the fire escape to see that the shadow that was Batman is no longer there. Gordon runs out of the alley, and...
EXT. APARTMENT COMPLEX - NIGHT
carries himself over to the array of cops encompassing the scene. Bullock is charming up a slightly overweight WOMAN standing beside the crime scene.
Everyone to your cars! We know exactly where the Riddler is going to strike next, details on the way! Turn your radios to channel five and follow me.
All of the cops begin to shuffle around the scene, all except Bullock, who is still chatting up the woman.
Sure thing commish! (To the other cops, halfway to their cars.) You heard him you scumbags! To your cars!
Gordon hops in his car and drives off. The rest of the cops, including Bullock, follow suit and drive off after Gordon.

Here's how I imagine the third movie beginning (i call it "The Batman")
EXT. BACK LOT, 250 52nd STREET BUILDING, NIGHT
As BATMAN runs off into the night, COMMISSIONER JAMES GORDON clicks a POLICE RADIO.
ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE BUILDING
An officer holds his German Shepherd in check.
Harvey Dent is down, I repeat, Harvey Dent is down. Pursue the Batman, PURSUE THE BATMAN.
OK, let's go! Let's go!!
Batman jumps on the BATPOD and the vehicle ROARS to life just as we hear BARKING close behind him.
Gordon pulls out his cellphone and dials a number.
This is Commissioner Gordon...I need a secure medical transport unit at 250 52nd Street immediately. Top priority.
Waiting in a squad car, police officers' radios crackle to life.
Attention all units, Batman sighted on Lower Fifth, pursue and arrest.
The squad car RUMBLES to life, and the SIRENS WAIL as the cop car zooms down the street.
INT. ARKHAM ASYLUM
Gordon enters the medical facility just as EMTs bring in a BODYBAG. They set it on a gurney and unzip it, revealing HARVEY DENT. An ELDERLY MAN, DOCTOR LEHMAN, walks over and begins examining him.
Please tell me he has a pulse.
It's faint, but it's there, Commissioner.
Get him on life support, I want him alive.
Sure thing, Commissioner.
Maybe i'll write a fanscript, who knows? Lemme know if you like
07-23-2008, 05:23 AM
**** YEAH!!! THANK YOU MYSTERIOUS ABOVE POSTER!!!! TWO-FACE IS JUST TOO AWESOME TO DIE!!! Mind if I continue?
TIME LAPSE: 2 WEEKS
INT. ARKHAM ASYLUM
Harvey Dent or rather Two-Face lies in a coma in of the many hospital wards. Not knowing whether he will come out of it and what will be his mental state, Gordon has him declared dead and plans to rehabilitate and eventually relocate him. Suddenly, the good eye opens
WHAT THE? GORDON? GORDON! YOU SON OF A B*TCH! WHERE ARE YOU?
Gordon at the receptions when Dr. Harleen Quinzel asks him to come with her to Harve's ward. He is visibly shocked and troubled
Harvey please! Calm down, we are doing everything we can. WE..
By locking me up in Arkham? You should have left me to die. WHERE'S YOUR PARTNER?
Referring to Batman
He's gone, no one has seen him in two weeks
LET ME OUT!
GORDON (visibly nervous)
We.. we can't... We had to declare you dead because you...
YOU WHAT?! YOU MONSTER!!! HOW DARE YOU!!! YOU HAVE NO JURISDICTION!!
Harvey, Calm down. We can't realease you in this state. You don't know what you have done. Your image is too important for this city and if anyone found out...
SHUT UP! But you know something? Your right! Your absolutely right! Harvey Dent is dead. And now there is only Two-Face. When I get out of here, you better pray that the chances are in your favor
07-23-2008, 10:56 AM
Good, but here's how i envision the scene:
INT. MEDICAL HOLDING CELL, ARKHAM ASYLUM
Harvey "Two-Face" lies semiconscious in a hospital bed. His damaged eye is constantly twitching, his breathing is ragged and strained. An EKG machine beeps steadily behind him.
Gordon stands JUST BEYOND THE DOOR, looking into the room.
How's he doing?
Gordon turns around, and standing beside him is THE BATMAN.
Stable..it's a good thing you're here. I told my men you were spotted on Peppling Avenue. Far enough away that they won't bother us for a while.
Has he said anything yet?
No, and that's why I'm thankful you're here..Doctor Lehman is afraid that Harvey's psychological damage will outweigh his physical damage. He won't trust anyone, especially us.
07-23-2008, 11:11 AM
OOH! ME LIKELY!
I guess we could have my scene later with Harvey accusing them both of being worse than the Joker and sacrificed their humanity just so his "image" can live on
Would you mind if I put Robin/Nightwing into the mix?
I have sot of a pseudo-script ready
It's pretty much a summary of how things would go
Might as well put it in
The movie begins at old warehouse by the docks where Two-Face has gathered all his hired guns to discuss an important matter. It appears that one of his men is actually a police informant and Two-Face wants to make an example out of him. The informant's name is Michael Drake and he pleads with Two-Face to forgive him saying that he has a wife and son. Two-Face replies with, "How sad, I had face. I am neither judge nor jury, *shows coin* THIS! is what decides the ultimate fate of all men. I am merely the executioner"
He flips his trademark coin, it lands on the scarred side and just as he is about to shoot him dead, a temporary wooden wall of the warehouse is blown apart as the Dark Knight roars in on his Bat-Pod (The informant had a final meeting with Gordon prior to this). A massive fight ensues and as Christian Bale dispatches all the thugs, the informant is unfortunately gunned down in the struggle and Aaron Eckhart escapes. The Batman checks his surroundings and curses himself for being so foolish as to jump right into the fray without prior planning. He was merely trying to save the life of the informant. As he kneels over his body, he hears a sound and sees a pair of eyes (of a young boy) looking towards him with fear. A terrible sense of Deja-Vu overcomes him and he leaves. The boy comes into full view, barely 18. He silently walks over to the body of William Drake and begins to cry. Only the surrounding darkness knows his grief. This boy is none other than Tim Drake.
Tim’s grief soon turns to anger as he vows to take revenge on his father’s killers and the Batman himself. He heads home but instead of sharing his grief with his mother, he decides to take a page out of the Batman’s book. He puts on some a leather jacket, jeans and a “Red Hood” (mask) to conceal his face. He grabs his father’s gun and a large butcher knife. Finally, he takes out a needle and a bottle labeled “Adrenaline” and injects it into his arm. Apparently, he is also a drug addict and the high he would receive would negate any physical pain. He sets of for an old hangout of Two Face’s thugs.
As one would suspect, he jumps into the fray. After the initial shock of getting attacked by a scrawny kid called the “Red Hood” had gone and one dead thug later. Tim Drake is brutally beaten up and left to die in a pool of his own blood.
Hours later, Batman sees him lying in the same comatose state. He removes his mask and recognizes him as the same boy from the docks. He checks for a pulse and after confirming that he was still alive has him rushed into a hospital. Tim Drake wakes up screaming and is surprised to find himself alive and well. He franticly turns around and notices none other than Bruce Wayne staring intently at him. Drake’s reaction, “Who the **** are you? What am I doing here?”
Bruce tells him about how he was merely driving around the city and found him lying in the middle of the road half-dead. He hoped someone was watching and decided to commit a good deed to fix his reputation with the public. Tim tells him he is a bigger bastard in person than on TV and Bruce thanks him for that. Keeping up with his spoilt good for nothing playboy image, Bruce decides to make big show telling everyone the “truth” and personally escorting him back to his mother (with a gaggle of reporters) so that the people see him as a hero. However, it all falls flat when it turns out his mother had committed suicide when her son did not return the previous night. Taking advantage of the fact that Mr. Wayne would no want to get his reputation tarnished, Tim turns to him with his hands folded and says, “OW pweese Meester Wayne. I gots no place to go. Won’t you take me to your beeg house.”
He says it with an extreme amount of sarcasm and disgust in his voice that only Bruce manages to catch. His motive was to merely find a safe place to stay, to think things over.
Thus, Bruce is now stuck with him and takes him to the Wayne Manor, which is still receiving the finishing touches. Bruce rarely speaks to him politely and Alfred hauls him up for it. At the same time Tim and Alfred become good friends since the latter feels Tim reminds him of Master Wayne before his parents died. Let’s cut it short and say Tim accidentally finds the Batcave and is naturally shocked by what he sees. Both exited and disgusted, Tim decides to steal some of his equipment and sabotage the others in his rage but not before Bruce finds him there and the two duke it out with Tim proving to be an able fighter considering he grew up on the streets, however he is no match for the Dark Knight who gives him a sound thrashing. Alfred is disturbed by this and breaking up the fight accusing Bruce of becoming what he hates the most.
Bruce tells Alfred that he is afraid Tim will end up on the same path he did or even worse in his path for revenge. It would consume him. Alfred tells Bruce that the only way out of this would be to groom him into someone who could compliment Bruce’s own crusade against the criminal element. He may look like a child but his mind is akin to that of a hitman. Bruce reluctantly agrees and trains him in the martial arts, criminology and detective skills. Considering his smaller stature Bruce decides to give a battle staff similar to those used by several martial artists. Lucius Fox presents him with a stealthier version (read more flexible and less heavy) of the Batsuit armor which was intended to be worn by pilots and recon troops. Finally a name is chosen, Robin is considered but after Tim complains that, “You want me to kill thugs by making them laugh?”
He is thus christened ‘Nightwing’
Also, the mask would cover his entire face with only his hair visible

INT. COLEMAN REESE'S HOUSE- NIGHT
REESE, looking somewhat disheveled and needing a coffee, is typing on a computer, copies of WAYNETECH and similar company documents, pan over these documents to show blueprints for the TUMBLER, the NOMEX SURVIVAL SUIT and GAS POWERED GRAPPLE GUN. Camera ends pan of REESE's DESK by focusing on his COMPUTER SCREEN, where visible words show that he is typing a manuscript, titled "KNIGHT TIME: THE IDENTITY OF THE BATMAN OF GOTHAM". Suddenly-
The off-screen SOUND OF A WINDOW BREAKING.
REESE gets up.
Who's there? What was that?
REESE gets out of his CHAIR and walks towards the DOOR to his living room, brushing up against a CANE.
INT. REESE'S LIVING ROOM- NIGHT
Full of books on Accounting, with a COUCH and a TELEVISION. Windows are letting in lights from the SUBURBAN STREET nearby. Reese comes in, and looks surprised, looking at a off-screen figure.
Who the hell are you?
Just a fellow seeker of truth and knowledge. Are you Coleman Reese?
CUT TO a early-to-mid thirties man standing next to a BROKEN WINDOW, standing a little over six feet tall and wearing a DARK GREEN BUSINESS SUIT with a BRIGHT GREEN TIE. He is wearing rubber gloves. This man is EDWARD NIGMA, alias THE RIDDLER.
REESE clinches his hands into a fist and looks agitated at the sight of the man.
Leave now or I'll call the cops.
Wait, I'm just hear to ask you if you know the answer to the ultimate riddle?
Listen, I'm just an accountant, I'm not gonna be able to tell you the meaning of life.
THE RIDDLER grabs at his hair and walks towards REESE and begins to speak
No, No, not that. The answer to that is obviously the number forty-two. I am looking for the answer to the riddle: Who is the Batman?
Read the damn book when it comes out.
But I want to know NOW!
REESE becomes extremely ticked off and walks back into his office to call the cops.
REESE'S OFFICE- NIGHT
REESE comes into the room and picks up the phone. The RIDDLER comes in after him and, grabbing the CANE, smashes the PHONE into bits. REESE, now scared for his safety, takes out his CELL PHONE. The RIDDLER holds up the cane like a baseball bat and swings it at REESE, knocking him clean across the head and knocking him down to the ground. The RIDDLER proceeds to continue to beat REESE, ranting all the way.
I must KNOW! I must KNOW THE SECRET! WHO IS HE! HOW DID YOU FIND OUT!
REESE, passed out on the floor, stops breathing. The RIDDLER, taking the CANE, then smashes the COMPUTER MONITOR and the COMPUTER ITSELF. He then stops and has a sad realization. He then looks over the DOCUMENTS. Taking out a TAPE RECORDER, he speaks into it.
Wayne theory may be bolstered by this evidence. I don't know how this sonuva-***** figured any of this out. Of course, it might not be Wayne, it could merely mean he's sponsoring him. This requires more investigation. I also killed Reese. I would've had to anyway, because I can't let anyone find out the true identity of Batman and spoil it for me by showing it to the world. I guess the game is afoot...
RIDDLER puts away the TAPE RECORDER. He then grabs most of the DOCUMENTS and stuffs them into a SUIT-POCKET. Straightening his tie, the RIDDLER begins to leave. Turning to REESE'S CORPSE, he stops.
Sorry, Mr. Reese. Huh, Mister Reese. Mysteries. Perhaps you were a kindred spirit.
The RIDDLER then turns to leave, but once again turns back. Appearing frustrated, he runs over to the DESK, grabs a piece of blank paper, takes out a PEN and writes down a puzzle. An ANAGRAM. It reads: "Oh Wow! Mushiest Ink.". The viewer is unable to read this though.
Figure this out, Batman.
The RIDDLER then finally leaves (taking the CANE with him), the camera pans down to the DESK and shows us the ANAGRAM.

EXT. SOUTH GOTHAM - BAY SIDE - THE DOCKS - NIGHT
The FOG is slowly rolling in from the bay. Countless ships are tied to the pier. Lying adjacent to the many boats on the pier is a WAREHOUSE.
EXT. SOUTH GOTHAM - BAY SIDE - THE DOCKS - WAREHOUSE ROOFTOP - NIGHT
Our attention is now drawn to the roof of this warehouse, where standing alone on its edge is the shadowy figure of the night, BATMAN.
(From behind Batman)
I almost thought you weren't going to show.
Batman turns around to see a voluptuous woman standing before him. The woman is wearing a tight black leather suit showing off all of her curves on her slender body, especially her gigantic breasts protruding from the zipper going down the front of her provocative suit. A top her head is a firmly placed mask, with two cat ears mounted on top. This sexy creature of the night is the infamous CATWOMAN.
Catwoman walks to the side of Batman. Slowly she begins to caress his chest with her claw adorned gloves.
I thought I'd have to do this one without you. Too big of a job to handle all by my little self.
Batman grabs Catwoman's arms and throws them off his chest.
Please, we have work to do.
Catwoman gingerly leans on the ledge of the rooftop.
Typical with you, all work and no play. I can tell you want to play as much as I do, but something is holding you back. What is it?
My interest in you is purely professional.
Professional. Everytime a man says that he's thinking about something else. So tell me Bats, what're you thinking about right now?
She shoves her BREASTS towards his face.
Direct, as always.
You expect anything different. Come on, I know you want me.
I've never had good luck with women.
Because none of them are in your league. You see Batman, you and I are a lot alike. Ordinary people give us no thrill, we need someone who can keep up, keep us on our toes. You and I, we're those people.
We have no time for this, they're here.
Batman looks down to the street below. At least five black cars come to a stop. Out of the cars emerge countless GANGSTERS. Suddenly a small black car pulls up, out of this car emerges a man. The man is medium build, wearing a nice three-piece suit, but his face is hidden beneath a black wooden mask. This man is the notorious mobster BLACK MASK. He motions for his gangsters.
Lets get a move on boys! There's no tellin' how little time we have.
The gangsters, led by Black Mask move onto the nearest cargo ship tied to the dock.
It's showtime, keep up if you can.
Catwoman jumps off of the rooftop, in mid jump she pulls out a WHIP, and "!CRACK!" Catwoman glides across the pier over to.....
EXT. SOUTH GOTHAM - BAY SIDE - THE DOCKS - CARGO SHIP DECK - NIGHT
the deck of the cargo ship. The gangsters are all startled at her arrival. Before they can pull their guns, Catwoman springs to action. Clawing, kicking, and whipping, she dispatches all of the gangsters.
Suddenly, Black Mask emerges from behind a crate, with his gun drawn, aiming for the now lone figure of Catwoman. Catwoman sees the gun and freezes in terror.
So, tell me kitty, just exactly how many lives can ya spare.
Batman flies out of the sky and kicks Black Mask firmly in the face.
Not as many as you're gonna need!
Black Mask falls to the ground, at the same time Catwoman whips his GUN out of his hand and into her own. Batman begins to advance towards Black Mask, then "!CLICK!", the two both turn their attention to Catwoman, who is aiming Black Mask's gun straight at him.
Shut up Bats, you had your chance! (To Black Mask.) Where's the Jewel?
I don' know wha' ya talkin' abou'!
Catwoman shoots Black Mask in the leg. He SCREAMS in agony.
Hmm, I wonder how many lives you have Mask?
Catwoman, stop it now!!! You're no murderer.
Just try me. (To Black Mask.) The jewel now!
Black Mask pulls a gigantic, shining JEWEL out of his pocket. He slides it across the deck of the ship to Catwoman. She slowly picks up the jewel, gun still pointed at Black Mask.
BLACK MASK (cont.)
that's it, that's what ya was lookin' for wasn' it?
Catwoman puts the jewel in a SATCHEL she has attached to the side of her suit.
You have been most kind. Now, if you'll excuse me.
She looks over at Batman.
Till the next time my love.
Catwoman throws a small SMOKE PELLET to the ground, out of the pellet billows smoke. Batman cannot see beyond his own hand, he surveys the surroundings. When the smoke clears, Catwoman is gone, as well as Black Mask. Police sirens are WHIRRING in the distance. Batman fires his grappling hook and soars off the ship into the sky.
INT. GOTHAM CITY POLICE HEADQUARTERS - COMMISSIONER GORDON'S OFFICE - NIGHT
GORDON is sitting down behind his desk, rifling through multiple reports. He lets out a frustrated sigh.
(From behind Gordon)
Gordon wheels around in his chair to see a cloaked figure in the shadowy corner of his office, this cloaked figure is no other than BATMAN.
No more than the usual. What have you got?
Batman slides a TABBED MANILA FOLDER across the floor to the foot of Gordon's desk. Gordon reaches down and retrieves the folder. He opens the folder and thumbs through the pages enclosed.
Not much. Black Mask got away.
What else is new? And that cat lady, do ya still think she can be trusted?
No, but she's definitely not on the mob's side either.
In this town, who isn't! It's gotten to where ya can't even trust yourself nowadays. What happened to the shipment?
Most of it's still there, Black Mask fled before he could get any of it.
What d'ya mean by most of it?
Batman remains silent.
Aahh. So did ya let her go this time or did she pull another grand escape?
Batman moves out of the shadows and crosses to the window behind Gordon.
I don't have time to discuss the way I do things.
Gordon stands up and grabs Batman's shoulder, wheeling him around to face him.
You had better make time! Your trusting this woman is outrageous! She's- She's-
A thief! Yes, like you she operates outside the law, but unlike you her morals are skewed.
I'm late for another appointment.
Please, just listen to me! Don't let your feelings for her get in the way, no good can come of it.
I wont Jim, you have my promise.
Batman opens the window and jumps out the open pane. Gordon runs to the sill and looks out on the streets below to see Batman soaring off into the distance.
the amazing fro
07-23-2008, 12:14 PM
Here is a scene I would like in the next one:
Gordon is in a cell in arkham. He is having a conversation with someone but it is not shown who as the camera stays firmly a bout ten feet from Gordon’s face. He is facing towards the camera apparently facing away from the other person.
Gordon: Its funny. Back when I started being a cop here I thought it would be easy (he chuckles nervously). Then years after the Wayne murders happened. I thought, “Who would have the guts- have the- have the nerve to kill two of the kindest people in the whole city in front of their 8 year old kid?” Then I realised that this isn’t Chicago anymore. This is Gotham. It eats you up and spits you out. I never had friends in the force. I was a one. The only good cop in a whole town of freaking rotten ones. Then he came. Batman. I’d encountered vigilantes before but they never got as far as taking a crime boss down. They never lasted long enough. He was breaking the law but I felt that- that he could make a difference. He could help y’know? I don’t know how to put it. So I allied with him and then you came along. I thought we could really go all the way (His voice becomes shaky). Seriously. I thought we would make this town clean again. I was wrong though. The joker had to come right when were getting somewhere. He killed Rachel and he-
Gordon stops and turns round to face the person he is speaking to
I’m alone again now. Fighting the war alone. Batman’s still there but I can’t rely on him anymore. (In a hushed tone) Since he can’t rely on me.
There is a long silence
FOR GODS SAKE HARVEY TALK TO ME!!!
The camera pans to the other person. It is Harvey dent/ two face in a chair with a straightjacket on. His face has zero emotion whatsoever.
Harvey stares at Gordon vengefully. He licks his lips.
Dent: Get out and go to hell.
Gordon stares at Harvey sadly. He slowly turns round and exits the room.
Not saying Harvey is alive. Just if he was it would be cool to have a scene like that.
07-23-2008, 06:00 PM
The new BATCAVE under Wayne Manor is lit by fluorescent lights, with spotlights on ten displays cases. The BAT-COMPUTER sits in a corner, covered from condensation and other waters by a hood. Next to the computer is the case holding the BATSUIT. Near the waterfall is the BAT-POD, as there is no current BATMOBILE. BRUCE WAYNE stands near the DISPLAY CASES, ALFRED enters.
CUT TO- Bruce looking at the contents of the DISPLAY cases. He walks past them. In one, the ORGINAL BATSUIT he wore during his first months as THE BATMAN. In the next, the MASK OF THE SCARECROW. In the third, an empty vial of the FEAR TOXIN ANTIDOTE. The fourth contains THE CALLING CARD OF THE JOKER. Wayne stops.
Miss Kyle called, she said she would be unable to make it to dinner tonight.
Just as well, since this Riddler figure. I haven't seen anyone so obsessed with Batman since....
BRUCE looks at the CALLING CARD.
Since him. I still hear his laugh in my dreams, Alfred. I still hear the echo of the things he said to me.
Then why, sir, do you place trophies from your adventures in such plain sight? Some would say you are honoring them.
BRUCE hesitates, walks to the next (fifth) DISPLAY CASE. Inside is the COIN that belonged to HARVEY DENT, as well as a "I BELIEVE IN HARVEY DENT" BUTTON.
No, I've made this little museum to remember... what I've faced.
CUT-TO: WAYNE facing the five still-empty DISPLAY CASES.
And what I still have to face. I worry I'm going to need more then ten cases...
07-23-2008, 09:38 PM
This scene takes place a few days after Dick is taken in by Bruce. Up to this Dick has refused to eat or really talk to anyone.
INT. WAYNE MANOR - BEDROOM - DUSK
DICK GRAYSON is sitting a top a WINDOW SEAT, peering out the WINDOW down at the DRIVEWAY below. There we see BRUCE WAYNE hopping into an ITALIAN SPORTS CAR and peeling out down the lane. The young boy turns his attention away to the distance, where at the horizon the SUN is SETTING. At this moment the bedroom door OPENS behind the boy, and in comes ALFRED PENNYWORTH carrying a DINNER TRAY in hand.
The sunsets from the Palisades are simply beautiful, you will not find a better sunset in the entire city.
Alfred moves to a ROUND TABLE and sets down the dinner tray.
I feel obtrusive for barging in like this, but I couldn't help but feel that you might be wanting a little supper.
(In a melancholy tone)
No thanks, I'm not really hungry.
Alfred reaches down to grab the dinner tray off of the table, and out of the corner of his eye he sees a small HARDBACK BOOK lying on the other side. Alfred sets the tray back down and picks up the book, reading its cover: THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD.
The Adventures of Robin Hood! Wonderful book! Was one of my favorites when I was your age. They just don't make stories quite like this anymore.
My dad used to read me that book, but (pause) it's just a stupid kid's book!
Alfred moves to Dick's side at the window seat.
I wouldn't necessarily call the story of a man fighting corruption and stealing from the rich and giving to the poor stupid.
Well thats what it is, I mean how can one man be so powerful and influential. It's very unrealistic.
Now I wouldn't say that it is entirely unrealistic.
Well, anyway, there's no such things as good guys, only bad ones.
Now what makes you say that?
Because any world with good would have not let my mom and dad die! (pause) I'm sorry Alfred.
At this time TEARS begin to stream down Dick's face. Alfred EMBRACES Dick in a nurturing manner.
That's quite alright Master Dick, you have a right to feel this way. Sometimes bad things happen, bad things to good people, and this was no ones fault, you must not blame all people for the actions of a few. It's times like this when you need to believe in a hero, a virtuous person who stands for good. Always striving for what's right, and fighting against what's wrong. Now,
Alfred pulls Dick back to where he can see his face. Alfred gingerly begins to WIPE the tears from Dick's eyes.
look at me.
Dick looks up at Alfred and SMILES.
That's much better.
Thank you Alfred. Do you think that food is still hot?
(While chuckling under his breath)
Well I should still say that it is.
Alfred and Dick move over to the round table, here Dick pulls up a chair and sits down. Then, all of a sudden, he pulls the dinner tray over to him and begins to eat as if he has never eaten before.
Is the food to your liking?
Dick quickly nods and then returns to his food.
Well it seems that my service here is done! I'll leave you to your supper.
Alfred sets the book down upon the table next to the tray. Alfred turns to head for the door. Here the book catches Dick's attention.
Alfred turns around.
Yes Master Dick?
Do you think that I could someday be like Robin Hood? Helping the unfortunate and fighting evil?
I do believe so.
