Synopsis:

This is a fanedit the combines elements from American Psycho, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Machinist into one cohesive story.


Intentions:

To create a more comprehensive story of the creation, rise and fall Patrick Bateman by Bruce Wayne. While on a seven-year long self-imposed exile from his wealth and riches, billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne meets a mysterious figure named Henri Ducard. Ducard trains Bruce in the ways of the ninja and offers him a place in the League of Shadows – a covert organization of vigilantes and assassins. Bruce rejects his offer and returns to Gotham City, now overrun with corruption and greed. He vows to take on an alternate persona to clean up the streets of Gotham. But what he becomes is much worse than even he could have imagined. Much, much worse…


Change List:

-Removed Willem Dafoe from American Psycho -Re-ordered/recut some scenes from American Psycho to make the body count higher -Removed Batman from Batman Begins -Removed Bruce returning home from school from Batman Begins -Removed Joe Chill subplot from Batman Begins -Rachael and her relationship with Bruce is (almost) completely removed -Removed all but 2 short scenes from The Dark Knight -Removed everything from the Machinist that dealt with Trevor’s job, co-workers, the accident and Ivan -Added some clips from Christian Bale’s rant on the set of the new Terminator to illustrate Bruce/Patrick’s inner dialogue with himself to show his growing insanity.


Additional Notes:

I think I’ve tied up any loose ends or plot holes. Some aspects may require a leap of faith. If you have any questions, just remember that Bruce is crazy. Bat-shit crazy, so to speak. His actions aren’t always rational. He jumps between his different personalities as a result (or maybe as a cause) of his psychosis. There are a few hard audio cuts in the American Psycho footage. These are in the original and I didn’t see anything wrong with having them in there.
