Re: Write-A-Scene for the Superman/Batman movie
-The scene begins with a slow camera shot of the stadium,fans cheering in unison.-
Commentator: well here we are people, here to watch two rival collages play some football! Gotham vs Metropolis!
(Fans go nuts)
-inside one of the booths up in the gods, Bruce Wayne is seated with lex.-
Lex: I'm telling you Bruce, this alien is trouble. Without rules and restrictions it's a ticking time bomb my friend, and we owe it to the people to be better prepared for the inevitable.
(Bruce remains silent, watching the game unfold.)
Lex: come with me this Saturday and I'll show you something, something that will allow the people of metropolis to sleep sound in their beds.
(Bruce breaks away from the game. )
Bruce: having trouble sleeping luthor?
( lex smiles as he reminisces )
Lex: ...at first. I couldn't sleep knowing that earth was a mistake away from becoming a play ground for beings of immense power.
Bruce: this kryptonion seems different from his angry and vengeful friends.
Lex : don't let it fool you, flying around with bright colours and all, but it's not going to be "friendly" forever.
Bruce:look Lex, I've pooled my resources to help with the re building of downtown metropolis, But this Kal ha..
Lex: Alien. ( his face is dead serious)
Bruce: this KAl-El has helped rebuild and lowered metropolis' crime. In short, these are not the actions of a monster. The way I see it, as horrible as it was, he stopped our very existence from ending. From ENDING Lex.
( Lex scratches his throat )
Bruce:whatever you're doing, you're wasting valuable time. there is still plenty to do for metropolis.
( lex smiles at Bruce )
Lex: time will tell. The alien will fall from his high horse, no one is that altruistic.
( Alfred approaches with company )
Alfred: a Mr Victor Stone, master Bruce.
(Bruce swivels and opens his arms wide)
Bruce: well now this is a treat, ( gets up and looks at lex) I haven't seen this enormous mountain of a man since watching him play collage football! Too busy in the big leagues these days I bet.
( Bruce leaves an indifferent lex to shake victors hands )
Vic stone : it's nice to see you too Mr Wayne. It has been some time, your looking good for a man pushing fifty. What's in the water over in Gotham?
( Bruce gestures Vic to sit with them as lex politely introduces himself )
Bruce: how's your dad? I hear he's making all kinds of incredible things over at star labs.
( victors eyes are drawn to the game out of force of habit )
Vic stone: he's good yeah. He's still trying to get me to put on the white coat, seems being an athlete confuses him, he doesn't get why I chose a career in football over standing at his side in star labs. It's been a while since talking to him to be honest. But he's good. Crazier than usual actually.
Lex: your father is a brilliant man Mr Stone, it's thanks to his systems that lexcorp runs efficiently and flawless.
Vic stone: if he comes out of that underground bunker I'll thank him for you.
Bruce: your father understands better than you think victor. Besides, life's too short, take it from the orphan.
( Alfred cuts in )
Alfred: master Wayne, Wayne enterprise has called, they need your approval.
( Bruce nods and quickly slaps lex and Vic's shoulders )
Bruce: my apologies gentlemen, business is business.
( Bruce gets to the door then turns)
Bruce: and victor? You're a damn fine athlete, you do whatever makes you happy.
(Victor smiles and nods )
Lex: offer still stands for Saturday Bruce, don't be afraid to question the alien!
- now in the hallway-
Bruce: whatever I'm doing Saturday, cancel it.
Alfred: right you are sir. Should I prepare your "dinner suit" sir?
