THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN [Script Exercise]

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN

CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?

Another P.BRAIN PROJECT
BY P.B. DEBERRY

PAGE ONE:

1. A shadowy figure has just entered into New York sewer systems.

2. The figure is Peter Parker - AKA THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN!

(1) “WHY IS IT EVERY TIME THERE IS A LIZARD SIGHTING IT’S ALWAYS IN THE SEWERS?”

3. Spidey is crawling along the top of the tunnel.

(2) “ANY SECOND I HALF EXPECT TO RUN INTO ONE OF THOSE MUTANT TURTLES.”

4. Spidey now crawling along the other side other tunnel. Garbage of all sorts fills the drainage, old couches, tires and New York size rats chewing on lunch.

(3) “GEESH…

5. Underneath Spidey costume, his cell phone sings out a Beyonce song.

(4) “TO THE LEFT, TO THE LEFT, TO THE LEFT, TO THE LEFT ”

(5) “YIKES!!”

PAGE TWO:

1. Open panel – Spidey is doing one of his trademarked acrobatics moves to get out of the way of a very pissed off Lizard. I liked to see the lines over Spidey head used for his Spider-Senses and some action lines for the phone ringing.

(6) “MMMMMM, TO THE LEFT, EVERYTHING YOU OWN IN THE BOX TO THE LEFT.”

(7) “GROAR!”

(8) “YIKES AGAIN!!”

2. Spidey is clinging to the side of the tunnels walls just out of the temporary reach of Lizard. Peter is now holding his phone to his ear.

(9) “THIS BETTER BE CAPTAIN AMERICA!

3. Lizard has just smashed the area Spidey was perched on and the Amazing Spider-Man dodges.

(10) “YIKES ALL OVER AGAIN!”

PAGE THREE:

1. This page is going to be nine panels – three boxes across and three rows down. First panel is of Mary Jane Parker pretty as can be, she misses Peter…

(11) “CAPTAIN AMERICA?”

2. Spidey’s head is upside down in this panel.

(12) “UM-HEH…HI HONEY.”

3. Mary Jane again…

(13) “WHATCHA DOIN’ SWEETIE?”

4. Head shot of Spider-man again this time he’s sideways in the panel.

(14) “REMEMBER HEARING ON THE NEWS THAT THE LIZARD WAS SPOTTED IN THE SEWERS?”

5. MJ once again…

(15) “UH-HUH.”

6. Same as four but Spidey is on the opposite side.

(16) “WHELP! I FOUND HIM.”

7. MJ again sweet as sugar.

(17) “THAT’S NICE. WOULD YOU MIND, WHEN YOU’RE DONE, BRINGING HOME A FEW THINGS?”

8. Normal head shot of Spidey.

(18) “I WAS PLANNING ON PICKING UP A COUPLE THINGS LATER.”

9. One more head shot of MJ

(19) “PETER?”


PAGE FOUR:

1. Spidey is still holding the phone and is in a bad way now. Lizard has him and is trying desperately to eat his face.

(20) “I’LL HAVE TO CALL YOU LATER…”

(21) “URGH!”

(22) “HISSSSSS”

2. Mary Jane has pulled the phone away from her ear and looks a little confused.

(23) “…i love you.”

(24) “BEEEEE”

3. The phone Spidey been using is underneath the huge scalee foot of Lizard - smashed into a million pieces.

(25) “CRUSH”

4. Peter is not happy with Lizard right now. Spidey has created a giant fist with his web fluid and has just connected squarely on Lizard’s chin.

(26) “I STILL HAD MINUTES ON THAT PHONE!”

(27) “SMASH!”

5. Peter in his civilian clothes is walking home, bag of groceries in one hand milk in the other. Coming towards him a police car lights on, sirens wailing.

(28) “MJ IS GOING TO KILL ME WHEN I TELL HER ABOUT MY PHONE.”

THANK GOD THE END…
