A crashed spaceship is smoldering in a city car park, people getting up from hiding spaces to look
A figure enters a hole in the ship.
The figure has reached the pilot, gravely wounded.
It holds out a green glowing object to the person
PILOT: Take it.
The green glow reveals the face of the figure; Rocky Balboa.
Day - Rocky is hovering above the city, his face revealing his astonishment
NEWSCASTER: (OS) Breaking news - former two-time heavyweight championship boxer Rocky Balboa has been recruited as part of the elite intergalactic peacekeeping force known as The Green Lanterns.
A green comet is speeding over the ocean
NEWSCASTER: (OS) (CONT'D) Every Green Lantern receives a device known as a Power Ring that creates 'energy constructs' ...
Rocky is trying to create a sphere - it splutters and fizzles, like a badly recieved TV image.
NEWSCASTER: (OS) (CONT'D) - limited only by the user's imagination and willpower.
Rocky's apartment - Paulie is examining the ring, Rocky holding his head in his hands.
PAULIE: At least you got a nice piece of bling.
A darkened office - Rocky is seated in front of an anonymous man in black, and two men in officer's uniforms.
MIB: We want that ring, Mr. Balboa.
ROCKY: I don' wanna give away any gifts. It's kinda embarrassing if whoever gave it to you turns up later and -
MIB: Who do you think could serve your country better; a specially selected, trained and conditioned agent of the United States - or an old, washed up fighter?
OFFICER: Face it - it's for the good of your country.
ROCKY: Call me crazy - but I don't believe you.
Rocky is hovering over the ocean.
VOICE: Mr. Balboa?
Rocky turns to see a man in a Green Lantern uniform (Hal Jordan) hovering a few feet away.
Rocky and Jordan are in a scrap yard.
JORDAN: I've seen all your fights sir, and ... I can help you get the hang of that ring.
Rocky is performing a series of tasks with the ring, under Jordan's supervision.
JORDAN: It's about focus. Concentrating on a method, an action, a concept, and using everything in your heart and mind to make it happen.
Rocky is creating more and more complex geometic shapes.
The White House - the MIB is leaving the Oval Office. The Officers are waiting for him
OFFICER: Did he agree?
A bunch of commandos are being outfitted in high tech gear and weaponry.
MIB: (OS) When I told him we could solve the Iraq problem in three days with that ring, he signed every dotted line. We go tonight.
Rocky is flying above the city.
ROCKY: (OS) I used to fight because I thought 'that's what I am'. I also fought for respect. I fought for a friend.
Rocky is flying over the world.
ROCKY: (OS) (CONT'D) For the first time - I'm fighting for Everybody.
CAPS: ROCKY - FINDING THE LIGHT
Night. A cityscape. Rocky is on his knees, two commandos holding him down, one hitting him in the face
COMMANDO: STAY DOWN!
The MIB is in a control room, a headset on his ear.
MIB: We got him
Cityscape - Rocky looks up, angry.
He swings with his left -
- and a burst of green energy sends the commandos and several vehicles flying.
Control Room - the MIB is visibly stunned.
OFFICER: (Contemptuous) Haven't you seen one of his fights?
