Synopsis: The Dark Knight is a 2008 superhero film directed, co-produced, and co-written by Christopher Nolan. Featuring the DC Comics character Batman, the film is the second part of Nolan's The Dark Knight Trilogy and a sequel to 2005's Batman Begins, starring an ensemble cast including Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Heath Ledger, Gary Oldman, Aaron Eckhart, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Morgan Freeman.

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.
