Justice League (2017)
Ben Affleck: Batman, Bruce Wayne
Arthur Curry : So, let me get this straight. You do it dressed like a bat? Like an actual bat.
Bruce Wayne : It worked for 20 years in Gotham.
Arthur Curry : Oh, that shit hole.
Bruce Wayne : When the fight comes, we'll need you.
Arthur Curry : Don't count on it, Batman
Bruce Wayne : Why not?
Arthur Curry : 'Cause I don't like you coming here, digging into my business and getting into my life. People from Atlantis tell me, "Do this." Now you say, "Do that." I wanna be left alone.
Bruce Wayne : Is that why you help these people out here in the middle of nowhere? 'Cause you can just leave?
Arthur Curry : I help them 'cause no one else does.
Bruce Wayne : If you want to protect them, you need to work with me.
Arthur Curry : "Strong man is strongest alone." You ever heard of that?
Bruce Wayne : That's not a saying. That's the opposite of what the saying is.
Arthur Curry : Yeah... Doesn't mean I'm wrong.
Bruce Wayne : You ever heard of Superman? He died fighting next to me.
Arthur Curry : My point exactly.
Bruce Wayne : [sees the Flash suit] Silica-based quartz sand fabric. Abrasion resistant. Heat resistant.
Barry Allen : Uh... yeah, I do... competitive ice dancing.
Bruce Wayne : It's what they use on the space shuttle to prevent it from burning up on re-entry.
Barry Allen : I do... very competitive ice dancing.
Bruce Wayne : I'm putting together a team of people with special abilities. See, I believe enemies are coming...
Barry Allen : Stop right there. I'm in.
Bruce Wayne : You are?
Barry Allen : Yeah, I... I need... friends. People are difficult, they require a lot of focus. They, uh... they have a rhythm that I haven't quite been able to - like brunch! What is brunch? You wait in line for an hour for, essentially, lunch. I mean... I don't know. People are... a little slow.
Bruce Wayne : [smiles] I'll try to keep up.
Barry Allen : [holds up batarang] Can I keep this?
Bruce Wayne : I need your help. There is a stranger who comes to this village from the sea. He comes in the winter when people are hungry. Brings fish. He comes on the king tide. That was last night.
[a man speaks Icelandic]
Arthur Curry : Icebergs in the harbor, four months since the last ship got through.
Bruce Wayne : Well, this stranger doesn't come by ship. There are enemies coming from far away. I need warriors. I'm building an alliance to defend ourselves. Look, I'll give you 25,000 to talk to this man right now. Outside.
Arthur Curry : [speaks Icelandic to the others] Pretty sure he'll give it to me anyway.
[the others laugh]
Bruce Wayne : [sees a picture of the 3 Mother Boxes] Tell me what those threes boxes are and I'll make it 30.
Arthur Curry : You should get out.
Bruce Wayne : Can you at least point me to Atlantis?
Bruce Wayne : The world needs Superman... the team needs Clark. He's more human I am. He lived in this world, fell in love, had a job. In spite of all that power.
Bruce Wayne : I believe that an enemy is coming from far away. I'm looking for warriors, this stranger. Others like him. I'm building an alliance to defend us. It's very important that I see this man.
Alfred Pennyworth : Facial recognition is a bit dodgy on this one. But they've got a partial match. A Victor Stone. Genius IQ, football scholarship to GCU and deceased.
Bruce Wayne : Figures. Fairy tales and ghost stories.
Alfred Pennyworth : One misses the days whens one's biggest concern is exploding wind-up penguins.
Bruce Wayne : The simple life.
Bruce Wayne : Superman was a beacon to the world. He didn't just save people, he made them see the best parts of themselves.
Bruce Wayne : Arthur Curry. Also known as Protector of the Oceans. The Aquaman. I hear you can talk to fish.
Bruce Wayne : What's in the three boxes?
Arthur Curry : [walks in the water] It's ancient history.
Bruce Wayne : What is it? Mankind's melting the polar ice caps, destroying the ecosystem. They had it coming?
Arthur Curry : Hey, I don't mind if the ocean's rise.
Bruce Wayne : How about if they boil?
Arthur Curry : Dressed like a bat. You're our of your mind, Bruce Wayne.
[Arthur dives in the water and swims off]
Bruce Wayne : It doesn't mean I'm wrong.
[after been beaten by Superman and is thrown to the ground]
Batman : I think something is definitely bleeding.
Bruce Wayne : [to Wonder Woman] Superman was a beacon to the world... Why aren't you? You're an inspiration, Diana. You don't just save people; you make them see their better selves. And yet, I'd never even heard of you until Luthor lured you out by stealing a picture of your dead boyfriend. You shut yourself down for a century, so let's not talk about me moving on!
Aquaman : Honestly... I think we're gonna be dead way before that. And you know what? I don't mind. It's an honorable end. But we've gotta shut Steppenwolf down. Superman's a no-show. You've got no powers, no offense. This guy might be working for the enemy. We don't now. You're tripping over your feet, and mine... whuf, you're gorgeous, and fierce... and strong. I know we went to war with the Amazons, but that was before my time. You know what? I don't wanna die. I'm young. There's shit that I wanna do. I just feel like... I didn't really embrace the sea or the land. I've been a loner my whole life. But being part of something bigger, like this... maybe I'm scared because... I'm meant to...
Bruce Wayne : [Smiles, gestures to Aquaman who pulls Diana's lasso out from under his butt and tosses it back to her]
Diana Prince : I think that was beautiful.
Aquaman : [to Barry] You say a word about this, you'll meet every piranha I know.
Cyborg : [attempting to separate the three Motherboxes] Superman, we gotta pull these things apart. A couple more seconds, you'll see your opening.
Superman : Any blowback?
Cyborg : Big time. But I think we can take it.
Superman : Good... 'cause I really like being alive.
Cyborg : So do I.
[Both separate the Motherboxes, resulting in a huge explosion, knocking them both back]
Batman : Clark...
Superman : [groaning] I take it back - I wanna die.
Cyborg : [both laughing in pain] Man, my TOES hurt! I don't even understand the physics of how my toes hurt!
Wonder Woman : Children. I work with children.
Batman : [Parademon about to attack him] Son of a bitch!
Wonder Woman : AHH
[knocks parademon from batmobile]
The Flash : [running by] Oh snap!
Cyborg : [finishes several parademons] You're welcome!
Aquaman : [Jumps onto batmobile fender] YEAH!
Batman : This isn't the plan.
Alfred Pennyworth : No, Master Wayne! This is the team!
Cyborg : Hey, Blame the lady. We would've left you but she didn't ask for a vote.
Bruce Wayne : I had a dream. It was the end of the world.
Bruce Wayne : Did Steve Trevor tell you that?
