David S. Goyer - Knightmare lyrics
CUT TO MANSION
Diana, in her job as an antiques dealer, is shown an ancient sword while visiting a mansion.
It's the sword of Alexander. It's the blade that cut the Gordian Knot. It's a triumph.
As Diana stares at the sword, Bruce comes from behind her.
It's a fake. The real was sold in '98 on the black market. Now it hangs...
Over the bed of the Sultan of Hajar. Excuse me.
Diana tries to walk away, but Bruce grabs her by the arm.
Excuse me, Miss. The other night, you took something that doesn't belong to you. Stealing's not polite.
Is it stealing if you steal from another thief?
Who are you?
Someone interested in the same man you are.
Is that right?
I believe Mr. Luthor has a photo that belongs to me.
Did you get it?
As it happens, no, I didn't. The data you copied is military grade encryption.
You know. I bet with that dress 9 out of 10 men would let you get away with anything.
But, you're the 10th.
[Lyrics from: https:/lyrics.az/david-s-goyer/-/knightmare.html]
Mmm. I guess I am the first, to see through that babe in the woods act. You don't know me, but, I've known a few women like you.
Oh, I don't think you've ever known a woman like me. You know, it's true what they say about little boys: Born with no natural inclination to share. I didn't steal your drive. I borrowed it. You'll find it in the glove compartment of your car. Mr. Wayne.
She then walks away, Bruce stares.
Cut to BATCAVE
Bruce connects the drive to a computer, the screen reads [ INITIATING DECRYPTION ]. As the decryption is on 2%, we cut to black…
…and a metal door opens. A visibly more aged Batman steps out of it, in desert clothing over his cowl.
Cut to RUINS
The door was that of a stone bunker in a seemingly desertic location, covered in ruins and barbed wire. Pillars of fire similar to volcanos surround the area. Batman looks through a pair of binoculars.
A fleet of truck arrives in the ruin compound. Batman approaches a truck as its back door opens.
Did you get it? The rock?
Yeah, we got it.
Batman enters the truck, opens a LexCorp box, and finds only green light bulbs.
Stormtroopers with Superman's shield as shoulder patches reveal themselves to Batman and his allies.
Get down! Get down! Now!
Another soldier points his rifle at Batman. He holds his hands up, and by turning around sees his men being executed.
Angered, he begins a k**ing spree, gunning down and brutally beating the multiple stormtroopers working for Superman. Although he manages to take down most of the stormtroopers while Parademons invade the area and abduct many of his resistance fighters, Batman is eventually overwhelmed by the remaining stormtroopers there who could barely restrain him. He snaps one of their necks but then is brutally (but barely) beaten down and restrained by the other stormtroopers. Seeing the damage that Batman was inflicting on the stormtroopers and their inability to restrain him, a Parademon knocks him unconscious.
Cut to UNDERGROUND BUNKER
Batman recuperates chained up in the bunker with his remaining allies, eyeing them helplessly. Superman himself then lands in the bunker, and his stormtroopers reverently bow before their leader. He approaches Batman, swiftly murdering the latter's other allies with his heat vision. Superman then unmasks the infuriated vigilante.
She was my world. And you took her from me.
Superman then rips out Batman's heart.
CUT TO: BATCAVE
Bruce awoke from this nightmare to find a distorted and unstable blue portal of electricity right in front of him. Inside it is a mysterious time traveler...
Bruce! Bruce! Listen to me now! It's Lois! It's Lois Lane! She's the key! Am I too soon? DAMN! I'm too soon! You're right about him! You've always been right about him! Fear him! Fear him! Find us, Bruce! You have to find us... find us...!
Bruce wakes up again. That was all a dream. The computer reads DECRYPTING [100%] - [DECRYPTION COMPLETE ] before opening a LexCorp branded interface.
