Racing along a cratered dirt road, and we are -

INT. LAND CRUISER JOSTLING OVER UNEVEN TERRAIN - DAY


Three Hooded Men guarded by East European Militia. A third Militia drives. Next to him is a nervous, bespectacled man.

EXT. AIRSTRIP, EASTERN EUROPE - DAY


An airstrip overlooking a grey city rocked by artillery fire. A bland CIA Operative, flanked by Special Forces Men, stands in front of a commuter plane. CIA Man watches the Land Cruiser pull up, hard. The Militia Men jump out of the vehicle.

The Driver shoves the bespectacled man in front of the CIA Man.

CIA MAN
Dr. Pavel, I’m CIA.



Dr. Pavel nods, nervous. CIA Man hands the Driver a briefcase.

DRIVER
He wasn’t alone.


CIA Man, confused, spots the Hooded Men. He turns to Dr. Pavel.

CIA MAN
You don’t get to bring friends.

DR. PAVEL
(shaken)
They are not my friends.

DRIVER
Don’t worry, no charge for them.

CIA MAN
Why would I want them?

DRIVER
They were trying to grab your
prize. (Smiles.) They work for the
mercenary. The masked man.

CIA MAN
(excited)

Bane?


The Driver nods. CIA Man turns to his Special Forces Men.

CIA MAN
Get ’em on board - I’ll call it in.

EXT. SKIES OVER MOUNTAIN RANGE - DAY


The commuter plane struggles over snow-capped mountains.

INT. MAIN CABIN, COMMUTER PLANE - CONTINUOUS


The three Hooded Men kneel by the cargo door, handcuffed.

CIA Man grabs Hooded Man 1.

CIA MAN
What are you doing in the middle of

my operation?


3

Hooded Man 1 says nothing. CIA Man pulls out a handgun.

The flight plan I just filed with
the Agency lists me, my men, and
Dr. Pavel here. But only one of

you.


CIA Man opens the cargo door. Special Forces hang Hooded Man 1 out into the howling wind - CIA Man shouts above the wind.

CIA MAN
FIRST ONE TO TALK GETS TO STAY ON
MY AIRCRAFT! (Cocks weapon.)
SO...WHO PAID YOU TO GRAB DR.

PAVEL?!


Nothing. CIA Man fires out the open door and the Special Forces yank Hooded Man 1 back in, clubbing him quiet.

CIA MAN
HE DIDN’T FLY SO GOOD! WHO WANTS TO

TRY NEXT?!


The Soldiers grab Hooded Man 2, hang him out the door.

CIA MAN
TELL ME ABOUT BANE! WHY DOES HE

WEAR THE MASK?!


The prisoner says nothing. CIA Man presses the gun to the man’s hood - he cocks the gun...nothing.

CIA MAN
LOT OF LOYALTY FOR A HIRED GUN!

THIRD PRISONER (O.S.)
Or he’s wondering why someone would
shoot a man before throwing him out

of an aeroplane.


CIA Man turns to the Third Prisoner. Shuts the cargo door.

CIA MAN
Wiseguy, huh? At least you can
talk. Who are you?

THIRD PRISONER
We are nothing. We are the dirt
beneath your feet. And no one cared
who I was until I put on the

mask...


CIA Man, wary, approaches the Third Prisoner - pulls off his hood, revealing a dark mask with a breathing apparatus. The eyes behind it are cold. Still. This is Bane.

BANE
Who we are does not matter. What
matters is our plan.

CIA MAN
(fascinated)
If I pull this off, will you die?

BANE
It would be extremely painful.

CIA MAN
You’re a big guy -

BANE
For you.

CIA MAN
(unnerved)
Was being caught part of your plan?

BANE
Of course. Dr. Pavel refused our
offer in favor of yours. We had to
know what he told you about us.

DR. PAVEL
Nothing! I said nothing!

CIA MAN
Why not just ask him?

BANE
He would not have told us.

CIA MAN
You have methods.

BANE
Him, I need healthy. You present no

such problem.



CIA Man laughs for the Special Forces’ benefit. A heavy bass tone is rising. The Sergeant looks out the window.

EXT. SKIES OVER MOUNTAIN RANGE - CONTINUOUS


The commuter plane is dwarfed by a massive transport plane looming over it, dangerously close...


5

INT. MAIN CABIN, COMMUTER PLANE - CONTINUOUS



The plane lurches. The noise is building.

SERGEANT
Sir?

CIA MAN
Well congratulations, you got
yourselves caught. What’s the next
step of your master plan?

BANE
Crashing this plane...

EXT. MOUNTAINS - CONTINUOUS

The ramp of the transport opens... Four men leap out on tethers - dropping towards the commuter plane, two each side...

INT. MAIN CABIN, COMMUTER PLANE - CONTINUOUS


The Spacial Forces react to the turbulence from the plane above. CIA Man looks at Bane.

BANE
(rising)

With no survivors.


A Special Forces soldier spins around - an Armed Man is outside the window. Bang -

EXT. SKIES OVER MOUNTAIN RANGE - CONTINUOUS


Two men shoot through the windows, the other two attach grapples to the fuselage - give the thumbs up - hoists start to pull and the tail of the commuter plane is lifted, unnaturally.

INT. COCKPIT, COMMUTER PLANE - CONTINUOUS


The Pilots battle the controls as the plane tilts forward.


6

INT. MAIN CABIN, COMMUTER PLANE - CONTINUOUS



Like lightning, Bane has the CIA Man is his handcuffed arms, legs wrapped around a seat back, The entire cabin upends. Tumbling chaos - Soldiers falling - Bane cracks CIA Man’s neck and drops him onto the Sergeant - they tumble down the plane, smashing into the cockpit door with a terminal thud. Dr. Pavel, strapped in, pushes against the seat in front of him - the plane vibrates, trying to tear itself apart.

EXT. ATLAS MOUNTAINS - CONTINUOUS


The men climb the tail of the smaller plane as it dangles helplessly above the mountains. Its wings shear off.

INT. MAIN CABIN, COMMUTER PLANE - CONTINUOUS


Bane breaks his handcuffs as if they were plastic, then opens his legs and drops down the cabin, somersaulting gracefully and using his arms to stop himself halfway down, by Dr. Pavel.

EXT. SKIES OVER MOUNTAIN RANGE - CONTINUOUS


The men attach explosives to the tail, then jump away, swinging out as the tail explodes.

INT. MAIN CABIN, COMMUTER PLANE - CONTINUOUS


An explosion takes off the rear door of the cabin - the Armed Men drop through the smoke on cables.

A body bag is lowered into the cabin. Bane lies it on the seat backs next to Dr. Pavel and unzips it to reveal a body the same age and build as Dr. Pavel.

Bane rips Dr. Pavel’s sleeve - pulls out a length of surgical tubing - pushes a needle into Dr. Pavel’s arm - runs the tube to the body’s arm... Dr. Pavel watches, horrified, as Bane starts compressions on the body’s chest, drawing Dr. Pavel’s blood across the tube and into the body...

An Armed Man pulls Hooded Man 1 up through the cabin and out. Bane stops Hooded Man 2.


7

BANE
Friend. They expect one of us in

the wreckage.



The man nods, unhooks himself, takes Bane’s arm.

HOODED MAN 2
Have we started the fire?

BANE
(nods)

The fire rises.


Hooded Man 2 hands Bane his line. Bane clips it around Dr. Pavel, takes out a knife and cuts Dr. Pavel’s seat belt. Dr. Pavel panics, flails. Bane takes his arms. Gentle.

BANE
Calm, Doctor. Now is not time for

fear...


Bane slides Dr. Pavel out of his seat. They hang in the vertical, windblown cabin. Bane takes out a detonator.

BANE
That comes later.


Bane presses the detonator - the cabin drops from around them, revealing the terrifying drop to the peaks below. Dr. Pavel screams as they are hoisted up towards the transport.

TriviaEdit

4U

The people at 8chan start making baneposts because of 4U9525 crashing with no survivors.

  • The plane scene takes place in Uzbekistan. However, according to the script, the scene takes place somewhere in Eastern Europe.
  • There are many theories about the scene, which includes CIA secretly hiding a parachute beneath his jacket to survive the plane crash.
  • There is a real life plane crash that is similar to this scene. It happened in March 24, 2015. The plane that crashed was called the Germanwings Flight 4U9525. For more information, look at the image aligned to the right. Click on the image for full-screen view.
  • The flight plan CIA just filed with the agency lists Smee, Maimen, Dr. Pavelheer, Button-Lee, and Juan Ovyeu.
  • According to Google, CIA's actor Aidan Gillen is actually bigger than Bane's actor Tom Hardy. This may be false information since CIA called Bane a big guy. No seriously, look it up.
