Batman - Years Lost - Fan Film Script Pt1
Hope you enjoy, like I mentioned it will be set later in Batman's career and as the story progresses will introduce a lot of the Bat Family and fantasy elements. Oh sorry about the format, I wrote on my script software and won't transfer the correct format over.
I am writing a fan fiction script for Batman, figured now is a good time as any now that the trilogy has come to an end. Although this part focuses on some origin aspects it will actually be set several years into the Batman's career. Hope you enjoy constructive criticism welcome - I did write this on my night shift so tiredness may have caused a couple of errors.
EXT. MONARCH THEATER -- NIGHT
Monarch Theater -- Stylistic, modern and upbeat movie theater -- "Mask of Zorro" is displayed in bright lights above the doors -- people of all ages enter with smiles and excitement.
"It began here..."
EXT. MONARCH THEATER -- NIGHT
Monarch Theater -- Now rundown -- Windows smashed and front doors broken open -- "Mask of Zorro" still hangs, but missing "A" and an "R" while the "F" hangs upside down --only people outside are whores and drug dealers.
"...This is where the roots of Gotham's evil finally surfaced, finally showed itself and began spreading like a virus…"
A large shadow in the shape of a BAT moves swiftly over them.
"...and it is where I decided to become the cure..."
INT. CRIMINOLOGY STUDIES CLASSROOM -- DAY
A young BRUCE WAYNE has several books on his desk -- He is focused -- His concentration is broken by his TEACHER, grey hair, older figure who hands him a piece of paper -- It is a test with "A" stamped on it.
"...First I trained my mind to understand the sickness plaguing my city..."
INT. SCIENCE LAB -- DAY
BRUCE is mixing a varying amount of chemicals, until "BANG" -- Everyone in the classroom is stunned, but not Bruce as he scribbles down his findings.
"...Be ready for it..."
INT. ADVANCED TECH EDUCATION CENTER -- DAY
Various cuts of Bruce working on and building several devices -- Firstly the tip of what will become his grapple gun -- It looks like a silver spike until it pops open revealing 3 additional spikes all facing downwards -- Then we see Bruce strapping electrodes to his arm, with a flex of his forearm in a specific fashion launches "Ninja Star" style projectiles from under his wrist.
"...Learn how to use my knowledge to fight it..."
Lastly a small LCD which when pressed starts up an old car in front of him, which gains a small smile from Bruce.
"...With my mind ready, I trained my body and my soul..."
EXT. TIBETAN MONASTERY -- EVENING
Candles surround Bruce as he meditates -- suddenly he is attacked, but he reacts taking out his 3 would-be attackers.
"...I traveled the world..."
EXT. RUSSIAN STREET -- NIGHT
About 50 men, most shirtless are gathered in a circle -- Cheering and chanting -- Inside we find Bruce Wayne -- Bearded -- Fighting a man who looks twice his size -- There isn't the grace this time -- This is about fighting with grunt -- Wayne strikes his opponents body strategically chopping the man down before finishing the job with a swift and effective upper cut.
"...I learned how to fight, who to fight..."
INT. JAPANESE TEMPLE -- DAY
Four men, each with large swords guard a small box that is centered between them.
"...And when to use the shadows and the environment to my advantage..."
Suddenly the temples bell ring -- The men, distracted, turn and with the second chime Bruce takes one of the men down -- The three men left realise they are being taken out -- Then the lights go out -- one man lights a torch to reveal he is now alone -- Creaks are heard all around him causing him to swing wildly -- Suddenly he is grabbed from above
Bruce walks over to the box and opens it to reveal the message "YOU ARE READY"
"...All that was left was the method..."
INT. WAYNE MANOR -- NIGHT
BRUCE WAYNE stares out of a large window -- Faintly in the background Gotham can be seen -- A large Black Bat comes crashing through startling him and knocking him back on to his chair.
"...But it seemed fate already had that something planned for me to adopt."
