A cloudy sky, that slowly sways and moves with the wind. The iconic S -Symbol is formed in the clouds. The wind again chills and we - INT. SKY - AFTERNOON A red and blue blur burst through the clouds much faster than we can follow. We are over the Atlantic ocean. The reflection of the blur barley resonates in the water as ripples flow back as the blur burst faster back into the air. The blur moves with a purpose, a quickness that means business. Suddenly,... A rumble loud and growling with twisted metal. An explosion, rocks the sky. The blur moves without hesitation. A plane is falling out of the sky, turning and sway in discord. It’s right engine burst into flames, spilling debris. Smoke, black, spews from the flames a trailing path of destruction. The red and blue blur, never stopping attaches himself to the bottom of the plane. No, longer a blur. A man. A Superman. He digs his hands into the metal with ease getting a firm grip on the twirling plane. He twirls with it until his hands find a grip. His red cape swirls and turns with the plane. He strains, shaking, lifting. The whole plane shakes from the turbulence. The plane slows gradually in descent. It no longer twirls and sways. It levels, burning engine and all. The Superman has has the plane. He stares down, fifteen feet below is the sea. His reflection and the plane he holds staring back at him. People on the plane screaming, staring out the window for sight of what is happening to them. (CONTINUED)
CONTINUED: 2. SUPERMAN (to himself) A bit close. He strains as he and the plane slowly lifts into the air. He pushes himself forward gaining some speed. MAN (OS) Were saved! Were flying! The peoples panic subsides. Superman can’t help, but smile. EXT. SMALLVILLE ROAD - AFTERNOON An empty road between a row of cornfields. A sign reads. "Welcome to Smallville" Superman comes into view, hovering over the field he eases down lower and lower, laying the plane on the street. He comes out from the bottom. The plane making a THUD noise. He slowly flies to the plane door, ripping it off its hinges. He pulls the rip cords for the emergency landing, and the yellow slide fills with air and touches ground. A stewardess sitting on the floor out of her seat belt stares at the floating, Superman, who slowly hovers back. STEWARDESS (shocked) Who, who are you? He just smiles at her and slowly floats back. SUPERMAN I trust you can get the people to safety? The stewardess nods still in shock. The people in the plane badger the windows with their faces, peeking out to catch a glimpse of this stranger, of The Superman. Their voice carry. WOMAN Is he flying? (CONTINUED)
CONTINUED: 3. KID It’s a superhero! Superman eases back and takes off with boom into the clouds. A brunette rushes to the front of the plane in front of the stewardess looking up into the sky. LOIS LANE He saved us. INT. PERRY WHITES OFFICE - AFTERNOON Perry White,55, dressed in a comfortable suit stares out the window into Metropolis. They are on the highest floor. PERRY WHITE I can’t, Lois. Perry turns towards his desk, various folders and important papers along the desk. Standing looking aggrivated is, Lois Lane,30. LOIS LANE Perry! I was there. Okay! This guy came out of nowhere, picked up the plane. I mean, it was amazing. Perry half believes her its on his face, he has some disbelief. PERRY WHITE I’m not arguing that something happened. He picks up a couple pages, Lois wrote. PERRY WHITE But, this? Were not a gossip column and we don’t do unfounded stories about flying men. LOIS LANE Everyone on the plane including me is a witness! PERRY WHITE Okay, Lois I’ll bite. What did you see? What did the passengers see? Lois is hesitant. (CONTINUED)
CONTINUED: 4. LOIS LANE The only person who got a good look at him, was the stewardess. PERRY WHITE Well, next time something like this happens, bring Jimmy with you and get a picture. Until than I can’t run this. Lois is dissapointed. LOIS LANE We have an obligation to report headline news. This is news! A knock on the door. Perry gestures his secretary, Alice, in. ALICE Sir, Clark Kent’s here for the interview. PERRY WHITE Send him in. Lois gives Perry the (what am I chopped liver look) Perry comes pass the desk and shakes, Clarks hand. Clark stands in button shirt, and tie, glasses on his face and the charming smile.
