INT. WAREHOUSE - HALLWAY
BATMAN walks down the hall cautiously.
INT. WAREHOUSE - MAIN ROOM
RACHEL DAWES is bound to an operating table.
A riddle for you, Batman.
THE RIDDLER steps out of the shadows, pointing a sub-machine
gun at Rachel. This isn't your comic-book campy version of
the Riddler, he's twisted and clearly insane. He has self
inflicted scars of question marks all over his face and
body. He wears a dirty green fedora and has dark circles
around his eyes. He wears a green necktie and a purple shirt
with the sleeves rolled up, so we see his scars.
Batman starts to approach Riddler. Riddler puts the gun
directly to Rachel's head. Batman stops in his tracks.
Don't you want to know what it is?
Don't hurt her, Riddler.
Okay then. If you aim to give us a
shot, we can riddle you. What are
repeat the question?
If you AIM to give us a SHOT we can
Yes, what would you be riddled
No, let him answer.
How did you come to that.
I thought that's what she said.
No,it's not bulls.
You know what? I have no idea.
Seriously? I have ten more of these
and they get harder. This one was
just to get us started.
Is it helicopters?
What? How does that work?
You know cause they...
I don't know.
Okay, lets try this again. If you
(motions with his gun)
To give us a shot...POW, you know.
We can riddle you...with us, you
can be riddled by us.
Is it you? You're riddling me.
(takes a moment to collect
Riddle doesn't necessarily mean a
joke or brainteaser in this
Batman, some words have multiple
meanings so in this case...
No hints! I'll get it. If you aim
to give us a shot we can riddle
What do you see in him?
At the moment I'm not sure.
I got it! It's me!
Oh my god no. You can get riddled
with something that you aim and
shoot. It's really all right there
for you. Just put it together.
Batman puts his hand to his ear.
Lucius. Come in. I'm spelunking and
I need help.
LUCIUS FOX (O.C.)
(Morgan Freeman voice)
Spelunking. Of course. Go ahead.
It's a riddle: If you aim to give
us a shot we can riddle you. What
Hmmm...is it helicopters?
No, that's what I thought.
Let me check the
supercomputer...It's doing the
little spinny ball thing.
Okay, I'll wait.
OH MY GOD IT'S BULLETS! BULLETS!
You AIM, you give them a SHOT and
then you are RIDDLED with bullets.
How could a bullet riddle me?
Bullets don't talk.
OH MY GOD. THEN I WAS GOING TO
SHOOT YOU, LIKE THIS!
Riddler shoots batman. The bullet ricochets off of his armor
and hits Riddler in the leg, causing him to collapse. Batman
goes over to him and starts to cuff him.
You know, it's no fun if you give
away the answer.
Let's go Rachel.
You know what, I'll find my own way
LUCIUS FOX (O.C.)
Okay the spinny ball went
away...the answer is....oh it's
