We have to wait nearly two years to see Henry Cavill's Superman take on Ben Affleck's Batman on the big screen — but you can read the screenplay for another Superman/Batman movie right now.

Below is a ScribD embed of the script for Batman Vs. Superman: Asylum, as written by Andrew Kevin Walker and revised by Akiva Goldsman in 2002. This is the one where Batman's wife dies and he retires, until he teams up with a bitter, divorced Superman years later — until they're tricked into fighting. Anyway, read for yourself.

I'm only on page two (hey, I just got in from a run. I feel like sitting for a bit.), but I have to comment:

TWO SECURITY GUARDS arrive from inside the Monument. They fall back for cover as BULLETS RICOCHET! The TERRORIST ducks behind the rear of the TRUCK as the FIRST GUARD leans out, RETURNING FIRE!

Were the exclamation points necessary? I'm just imagining if they weren't there. "Okay, guys, we need to do this as boring as we can. If the writer wanted excitement in his shootout, he wouldn't have used periods."
