I've been developing this movie script for some time now with my friends and we plan on making this our college movie project; It was sort of an idea I had while watching a Street Fighter movie based on Balrog and some shows like the Office and Parks & Recreation.
It's a DC Fanfilm Mockumentary that explores a bit of the DC Mythology based on the civilians' views, with characters like Jimmy Olsen, Steve Trevors, Lois and the Gray Ghost sharing their views on the Superheroes.
So tell me what you guys think about it (NOTE: This is mostly an amalgam of a lot of DC Comics elements, it has a main focus on the early post-crisis versions but still has refferences to shows like Smallville and Arrow, universes like the Pre-Crisis and Earth-One comics and one-shot stories too.)
[Based on the DC Universe]

PEDRO: What I saw wasn’t a superhero or a human being for the matter; What I saw was an angel with the appearence of a monster, I couldn’t tell if it was man or animal with his distinguishable appearence; Pointy ears, blank eyes, black wings and claws located close to his arms.
OFF-SCREEN: So what you’re saying is Batman is some sort of mythological being?
PEDRO gets closer to the camera.
PEDRO: You call him Batman; but I call him Azrael, the Archangel of death.
JOE: I was one of the first people to interact with the Atlantians; In particular, their king Aquaman.
OFF-CAMERA: Could you tell us about your first encounter with your said hero?
JIMMY: It was around 1987, where Superman first popped up, but at the time he wasn’t a Superman; He was a Superboy.
LOIS: Me and Jimmy, we were tasked by our boss to mee this new worker, who nowadays, just happens to be my husband.
OFF-CAMERA: So, the day you met this guy you also met Superman?
LOIS looking nervous: Yeah, it just happens to be an odd coincidence; Now let’s get to the main details, shall we?
JIMMY: The guy we’re talking about is my highschool friend, Clark Kent or as Lois calls him “Smallville”.
LOIS: So by the time Clark was with us, We decided to take him to do his first job on reporting, it just happens that Lex Luthor was announcing this new Military Battle Armour on a private convention; The power armour was huge, almost the size of a small building and was powered by this strange green mineral.
JIMMY: This “LEXO-SUIT” codenamed Metallo was piloted by John Corben, this demented war reporter that once worked for our newspaper and whom his other occupations included being a major jackass was offered a chance to, quote on quote, redeem his sins by working for Lex Luthor.
JIMMY coughs: Also a jackass
JIMMY: Whew, I think I’m gonna have a cold.
JIMMY has a smile on his face as the Documentary people laugh.
LOIS: For some reason, Corben went out of control and started killing everyone; It was terrifying, I saw smashed corpses, people from all ages running away in despair; It was a frightening experience, and…
LOIS: I’m sorry, I’m sorry; Could you give me a second.
JIMMY: Corben was a douche but I never knew he was a homicidal maniac; Me and Lois we were running for our lives, for a moment I remembered Clark but I thought it was already too late for that.
LOIS: I somehow tripped on the floor and Corben was about to smash me...When suddenly, He appeared.
JIMMY: Superman. The very primitive one, around 16 years old at the time; He managed to hold an entire fist from the battle armour with just two fingers, his power was unbelievable.
LOIS: He suddenly blasted from the ground to the sky with Corben and ripped the power armour bit-by-bit before arresting Corben by making a nearby lamp-post into a handcuff.
JIMMY: He went flying away after this, leaving our sight with a sonic boom; No one knew what he was, one people said that he was jesus, another person told that he was the Flash; He was a strange being.
LOIS: But what me and Jimmy were worried about was Clark; We thought that he was a goner and suddenly *lois puts her palm in her hand* Clark pooped up, with his underpants exposed.
“I needed to use the bathroom Lois, that thing got me scared to death” Good old Smallvile, what a figure.
JIMMY: *laughs* Thinking about it, my day when Superman popped up was fueled with mixed feelings. We were scared at the sight of Corben, relieved when we saw the Man of Steel and we laughed at Clark’s comedic nature.
LOIS: And with Superman’s act of justice, we got our scoop. But our newspaper needed a name for this guy, what was he gonna call?
JIMMY: All sorts of names popped up in our studios: Powerhouse, Destroyer, The Blur, Golden Boy, Hercules, Marveller, heck someone even said Lion Man at some point.
LOIS: But, then Clark stated that this “Man” was actually close to his age, so there was no point at calling this superhuman a “Superman”; And that’s when it hit me, Maybe he wasn’t a Superman, he was a Superboy. And that’s how the name Superman came up.
