Michael Bay's 'The Dark Knight' [Guitar solo]

July 20th, 2013

I can't believe I failed to notice Michael Bay's Rejected "The Dark Knight" Script when it first appeared:

EXT. A HIGHWAY – DAY

The Batmobile is gunning down the highway at over 200 miles per hour, weaving through traffic. Every time BATMAN is about to crash into a civilian, the camera enters ultra slow motion and we see him barely squeeze by, frame by frame. This happens seventeen times.

As BATMAN whizzes by cars, he attracts the attention of a young passenger in a nearby vehicle.

LITTLE KID
(pointing)

Mommy, mommy, look! Look!

MOTHER

Stop shouting, I'm trying to drive!

LITTLE KID
(watching the Batmobile)

Whoa.

The Batmobile races off into the distance. Finally, BATMAN catches up to the JOKER's zeppelin.

Good work.
