Re: Write-A-Scene for the Superman/Batman movie
Here's a scene I have in mind.
Batman's First Appearance
INT. LEX LUTHOR'S OFFICE - NIGHT
Lex Luthor is sitting in his office at night. Several of his goons - at least thirteen - patrol the lower floors - he can see all of them from a series of computer screens.
All of a sudden, the lights begin to flicker in his office. This is only happening here - the other floors are still lit. Lex goes to call maintenance, but the phone is dead. So is his intercom. Lex gets up and tries to exit the door, but his emergency lock has been enabled.
Going back to his computer screen, he looks at the various security screens. On the lowest floor, the lights go dead. It's dark for about two minutes. The lights come back on, and the room is empty. The guards are gone.
The same thing happens on the next floor. It advances. Lex feels dread building up inside him. He has no idea what's going on. Instinctively, he reaches for a pistol he has hidden under his desk.
Then all the floors below him are clear.
His heart rate goes up. He breathes faster, shorter. Adrenaline is pumping. He waits forever.
A thump behind the locked door. It sounds like someone is coming. He slowly advances towards it.
The door unlocks.
Just as it swings open, seemingly of its own accord, Lex hears the window smash behind him. He turns around.
The lights begin to flicker back on. He can make out a dark figure in front of him. But when the light turns back on, he's gone.
Lex looks out of the broken window - and something pulls him up onto the roof.
Lex looks into its eyes - its unnaturally cold eyes.
Then it speaks, in a voice that chills him to the very core.
FIGURE: I'm Batman.
