The Dark Knight Rises (2012) Poster

Alon Aboutboul: Dr. Pavel



  • CIA Agent : [to three prisoners]  The flight plan I just filed with the agency lists me, my men, Dr. Pavel here but only one of you! First one to talk gets to stay on my aircraft!

    [grabs a hood] 

    CIA Agent : Who paid you to grab Dr. Pavel?

    [No answer, the agent fires his gun away from the prisoner's head] 

    CIA Agent : He didn't fly so good!

    [pulls the hood back into the plane] 

    CIA Agent : Who wants to try next?

    [grabs another prisoner] 

    CIA Agent : Tell me about Bane! Why does he wear the mask? A lot of loyalty, for a hired gun!

    Bane : Or perhaps he's wondering why someone would shoot a man, before throwing him out of a plane?

    CIA Agent : At least you can talk. Who are you?

    Bane : It doesn't matter who we are, what matters is our plan.

    [the Agent removes the hood] 

    Bane : No one cared who I was until I put on the mask.

    CIA Agent : If I pull that off, would you die?

    Bane : It would be extremely painful.

    CIA Agent : You're a big guy!

    Bane : For you.

    CIA Agent : Was getting caught part of your plan?

    Bane : Of course... Dr. Pavel refused our offer in favor of yours, we had to find out what he told you.

    Dr. Pavel : Nothing! I said nothing!

    CIA Agent : Well, congratulations! You got yourself caught! Now what's the next step in your master plan?

    Bane : Crashing this plane... with no survivors!

  • [after imploding the football field, Bane and his mercenaries appear, and Bane picks up a microphone off one of the coaches] 

    Bane : Gotham, take control! Take control of your city. This... this is the instrument of your liberation!

    [His mercenaries bring Dr. Pavel forward and make him kneel in front of Bane] 

    Bane : Identify yourself to the world.

    [holds microphone in front of Dr. Pavel, as if he is conducting a news interview] 

    Dr. Pavel : Dr. Leonid Pavel, nuclear physicist.

    Bane : And what... what is this?

    Dr. Pavel : It's a... fully primed neutron bomb, with a blast radius of six miles.

    Bane : And who is capable of disarming such a device?

    Dr. Pavel : Only me.

    Bane : Only you. Thank you, doctor.

    [snaps Dr. Pavel's neck. The crowd screams in terror] 

    Bane : Now, this bomb is armed! This bomb is mobile! And the identity of the triggerman is a mystery. For one of you holds the detonator! And we came here not as conquerors, but as liberators to return control of this city to the people. And at the first sign of interference from the outside world, or for those people attempting to flee, this anonymous Gothamite - this unsung hero - will trigger the bomb. For now, martial law is in effect. Return to your homes, hold your families close, and wait. Tomorrow you claim what is rightfully yours.

    [Bane drops the mike, turns, and leaves the playing field] 

  • [Uzbekistani Army soldiers carrying Dr. Pavel greet a CIA agent and several Special Ops soldiers] 

    CIA Agent : Dr. Pavel, I'm CIA.

    [shakes hands with Dr. Pavel] 

    Barsad : He wasn't alone.

    [motions to three hooded prisoners he has brought alone] 

    CIA Agent : Uh... you don't get to bring friends.

    Dr. Pavel : They are not my friends.

    Barsad : Don't worry, no charge for them.

    CIA Agent : And why would I want them?

    Barsad : They were trying to grab your prize. They work for the mercenary. The masked man...

    CIA Agent : Bane?

    [the driver nods] 

    CIA Agent : Get him on board, I'll call it in.
