The opening credits roll accompanied by the voice-over of the Los Angeles police frequency, reporting a car chase in progress on the LA freeway. We are then given a shot of a white SUV being chased down the highway by a large squad of patrol cars. The Asian gang in the car proceeds to fire machine-guns wildly out of the car windows at their pursuers, and it seems that this chase will not be over any time soon. The scene cuts to our first introduction to Hancock (Will Smith) passed out sleeping on a bus bench, while a small child begins poking at him. Hancock finally awakens and the kid points to a nearby electronics store where the police chase is being televised on the TVs in the window. Hancock yells at the kid a bit for waking him up, and the kid proceeds to walk away, muttering “A**hole” (this is a running gag). Hancock sighs and reaches under the bus bench where he has a cardboard box full of whiskey bottles, and he reaches in and pulls out one of them. Hancock then proceeds to explode of the ground and into the air (causing major damage to the street and destroying the bench in the process). Hancock then flies towards the police chase, while drinking from his whiskey bottle (the best way to describe it is: flying-driving drunk). In the process he crashes through a flock of geese and nearly misses the tail-end of an airplane. Hancock moves up towards the white SUV after crashing through a billboard on the LA freeway, which crashes to the ground causing a massive pile-up of all the pursuing police cars. Hancock smashes through the roof of the white SUV and lands in the back passenger seat. He then asks the guys to give themselves up. They curse at him in their own language (complete with subtitles including ‘A**hole’) and freak out that he’s in their car. Hancock then threatens them with what will happen if they don’t give themselves up (Pointing at each of the 3 of them: Your head will go up his a**, your head will go up his a**, and you’ll have the worst of them all because your head is going up my a**). They of course don’t listen and proceed to unload machine-gun fire on him, which just bounces off him and ricochets around the car. Hancock looks down at his now broken whiskey bottle and through his bullet-hole-ridden shades and says one word, ‘Ok’. Hancock jams his feet through the floor of the car, grinding it to a halt and also tearing up the freeway. Hancock then flies out and picks up the SUV by its back bumper and proceeds to toss it around, dragging it past buildings, breaking windows, etc. Eventually Hancock impales the SUV on the steeple of the Met-Life Building, and flies away.
Cut to a nearby bar where you see the news report of “Hancock’s latest heroics”, and complains that Hancock caused almost 9 million dollars in damage already in his so-called heroics. The police chief comes on and chastises Hancock ‘wishing that he would just go to New York and bother them’. You see Hancock sadly drinking in the bar as he looks on at what the people think of him. The various old people in the bar stare at him, and Hancock finally notices this and threatens to beat up an old lady sitting at the bar if she doesn’t stop looking at him.
We are then introduced to Ray Embrey (Jason Bateman) who is a Public Relations whiz apparently (his accompanying co-workers refer to him to the corporate CEO as the ‘Bono of PR’), and he is about to pitch an idea to a big company. He pitches the idea to a large pharmaceutical company board that if they just give their new drug away for free to the people who really need it then they can use the All-Heart logo that he invented (A red circle with a heart in it), which means that that company is committed to trying to change the world (Ray’s dream). As it turns out Ray really isn’t that great a PR man as the company asks if he’s joking. You see Ray sadly driving home as he calls his wife and tells her that it didn’t go so well. We see that Ray is caught in traffic right on the railroad tracks, and the guard-rails come down with him stuck in the middle. He realizes this and begins to panic, attempting to drive forward and back-up but traffic is so congested he can’t move. He attempts to unlock the door but the door-handle breaks off. Ray shields himself from the inevitable impact when there is a knock on the hood of his car. He looks up to see Hancock lift up his car and throw it out of the way landing upside-down on top of an old lady’s car. The train then proceeds to crash right into Hancock in a rather large crunching impact. As the smoke clears Hancock pulls himself out of the front of the train and moves back where he and the audience are given a panoramic look of a train-car pile-up that was caused by him. Hancock is then surrounded by angry on-lookers who chastise him for what happened (One large man says the old lady he dropped Ray’s car on should sue him, and Hancock retorts that the large man should sue McDonalds for making him look like that, and another woman says she can smell alcohol on his breath, to which he responds ‘Cause I’ve been drinking B*tch!’). Just then Ray comes out of his wrecked car and defends Hancock, saying that because he saved him now he can go home to his family, and then he thanks Hancock. Hancock seems slightly taken aback by this comment, but his natural surly look replaces it quickly. Looking at his over-turned car, Ray turns to Hancock and says ‘You wouldn’t happen to be flying over the west-side would you?’.
Cut to a friendly suburban neighbourhood, where kids are playing and suddenly Ray’s wrecked car lands in the middle of the street with Ray in the driver’s seat. Ray gets out of the car where he is greeted by his son Aaron and his wife Mary (Charlize Theron). Aaron is immediately star-struck by Hancock, asking him many questions, who of course ignores him completely. Mary and Hancock look eyes for a moment and Mary looks in complete shock. Hancock then drags Ray’s car up by its bumper into the driveway. Ray invites Hancock in for dinner, which Mary immediately tries to get him to stop from doing, but Hancock does eventually agree to come in. While at the dinner table, it becomes clear that Mary doesn’t really like Hancock at all but still keeps looking at him with sadness and surprise. Aaron continues to barrage Hancock with questions until Ray tells him to stop. However, Aaron asks him about the eagle logo on his toque and the eagle necklace that he is wearing, and asks him if he likes eagles (IMPORTANT). Hancock says that he doesn’t like them, but this is clearly a lie. Ray tells Hancock about a bully named Michael (he’s French so its pronounced Michelle) who won’t stop bothering Aaron. Ray tells Hancock that he’s been trying to teach Aaron to ‘turn the other cheek’, to which Hancock turns to Aaron and in his own terms tells him that he should just boot him in the crotch. Hancock then asks to be excused to the bathroom and takes his whiskey bottle with him to the surprise of everyone at the table. As Hancock is leaving, Ray tries desperately to get Hancock to take one of his cards because he is in Public Relations and could fix Hancock’s image since ‘He’s supposed to be a hero and people don’t like him’. Eventually he puts a card into his vest and Hancock flies off (destroying part of the street in the process).
You then see Ray and Mary getting ready for bed. Ray is trying to convince Mary that helping Hancock is a good thing and that he owes him because he saved his life. Mary belittles and insults Hancock saying that he’s no good and shouldn’t come near their family anymore. We get a panoramic shot of the roof to reveal that Hancock is sitting on the roof of their house listening to what they’re saying with blood-shot teary eyes.
Cut to a large desert cliff next to the ocean where Hancock has his home just outside the city (two trailers crudely stuck together) where he sits on a lawn chair and looks out over the ocean. He goes in the trailer-house and you see him pay particular attention to a little green metal box, but you don’t see what is inside it.
Next morning, back in Ray’s neighbourhood, Hancock arrives and crashes back down to the street (causing more damage this time) and begins to walk towards Ray’s house. One kid who has witnessed this then proceeds to call Hancock ‘une a**hole’ (French). Hancock walks over and learns that this kid is Michael/Michelle (the kid who was bullying Aaron). Hancock asks Michael if he knows who Aaron is, and Michael says ‘Une petit a**hole (a little…). Hancock asks Michael to lay off Aaron and he calls Hancock an A**hole again. Hancock leans in very closely to the kid and asks him to “Call me an a**hole one more time”. Michael barely gets the first syllable out before Hancock throws him straight up into the air and out of sight in the clouds. After making sure that his two friends (Goggles and Thickness) will also leave Aaron alone, Hancock walks up to Ray’s house and Ray comes out of the house to greet him, happy that he came (“I knew you’d come”). Hancock half-listens to Ray as he continues to watch the sky, where Michael eventually comes crashing down and Hancock catches him and he walks away crying. Ray brings him inside the house and shows him three different comic books with three different spandex-clad superheroes on each of them and asks him what he thinks when he sees them (Hancock’s reponses; 1. Homo, 2. Homo in Red, 3. Norwegian Homo). Ray tries to explain that they’re heroes and its Hancock’s job to be a hero and people should love him. Ray then shows him two videos on Youtube to show perspective of what he’s talking about. The first one shows a bunch of kids at an ice-cream truck when suddenly Hancock lands infront of them, covered in black ash with burnt tattered clothing barely covering him (butt shot here) and he grabs an ice-cream Drumstick and proceeds to eat it half naked infront of everyone. Hancock turns to Ray and tells him that he should see what his a** feels like after putting out an apartment fire. Ray then shows him a video of a beached grey whale named Walter, where Hancock arrives and tosses him back out into the ocean taking out a sailboat in the process. Hancock claims not to remember that, and Ray responds, “People do…Walter does…Greenpeace does”.
Eventually Mary arrives home and sees Hancock there and happily turns on the TV to show (in a very funny scene) Nancy Grace on CNN Headline News angrily chastising and yelling about Hancock, complaining that he causes more problems than he solves, and saying that anybody else would be in prison now for all the damage he has caused. Ray then tells him that a DA is trying to figure out how to come up here and put him in jail. He recommends that Hancock go to jail, to make people miss him, since Ray believes that the city needs him and they take him for granted. After much debate, Hancock finally agrees.
As Hancock arrives at the prison, he gives a speech to the media that was prepared by Ray (although eventually it becomes clear that Hancock means what he is reading), in which he apologizes for all the damages that he has caused, he will be attending alcohol and anger management sessions, and that he will face the consequences (I am the only one of my kind, you expect better from me, I will be better). You see him being photographed and fingerprinted where we learn that his name is apparently ‘John Hancock’. He walks into the main hall of the prison and is immediately surrounded by 90% of the inmates. The audience quickly realizes that they are upset at him because he put most of them in this jail. Hancock tries to keep moving towards his cell but is stopped by a large man and a skinny man who won’t let him pass. He tries to ‘turn the other cheek’ and make them let him pass, but they won’t let him. Finally Hancock says, “If you don’t move then your head is going up his a**” (indicating the smaller man’s head to the large man’s butt). They don’t move and Hancock true to his word stuffs the smaller man’s head up the other guy’s butt (you don’t see it at first, just the horrified reactions of the other inmates, but eventually we are treated to a hilarious view).
The scene cuts to a plate-glass prison phone conversation between Hancock and Ray. Ray can’t believe he did that, and chastises him slightly. Hancock gets fed up with the phones and uses his fingernail to cut through the glass separating them and just talk to him that way. Ray tells him that the DA wants him to spend 8 years in prison, but Ray comments that with good behaviour that’s only 4 ?. Hancock complains that it has been five days and nobody misses him, so why should he be here. Hancock then heads for the exit, where Ray gets in his way and manages to convince him to stay. We are then treated to a montage of scenes where Hancock is trying to improve himself. He goes to anger management/alcoholics anonymous courses but everytime it comes to his turn he says ‘Pass’. He stands alone out in the prison yard, throwing a basketball into the hoop from over fifty meters away repeatedly. Ray brings Hancock a large clothing box and tells him that “This is for when they call”. Ray tries to teach Hancock superhero etiquette (not destroying everything, landing and taking off softly, etc.). This includes a funny scene where Ray tries to teach Hancock how when he arrives on the scene and after he saves the day to tell the law enforcement and rescue personnel that they did a ‘Good job’, in which Hancock refuses and Ray tries to get Hancock to say the words “Good Job”, just to try it on. We see that its a black and yellow leather suit with Hancock’s symbolic eagle on the back (think Wolverine’s outfit in the X-Men movies). Back at Ray’s house we see Mary watching the news on TV and it says that crime is up 30% since Hancock was put behind bars (it seems the city does need him after all). Mary then visits Hancock with Aaron, and Aaron happy to see him gives him a hug around the waist, and we see that there is still that weird tension between Hancock and Mary, and she looks on the verge of tears when he gives Hancock a tupperware container of spaghetti. Aaron then leaves Hancock one of his toy dinosaurs and tells him that its his favourite and he wants him to have it. Hancock is clearly touched by this encounter when they leave. Throughout all of this, we see Hancock using his fingernails to engrave symbols and pictures on the walls of his cell (we never see what he’s really drawing at this point). Eventually at the anger management circle, Hancock attempts to say ‘Pass’ again but they goad him into saying something to which he responds “I’m Hancock and um I drink”. They give him a round of applause and lots of encouragement and even manage to make him smile and give a thumbs up. Then we see Hancock outside, clearly upset and he tries to make the basketball shot again, but this time he misses and it bounces off the rim and outside the boundaries. Hancock flies outside of the boundaries, and picks up the ball, but to everyone’s surprise he eventually flies back into the compound. We then see Hancock lying on his cot, when a guard knocks on his bars and tells him that he has a phone call, and Hancock tells him to take a message. The guard responds “It’s the chief of police, he says he needs your help”. Hancock gets out of bed and walks towards the cell exit, noticing the clothing box next to him that Ray gave him. He notices his unshaven appearance in the mirror and proceeds to shave his face with his fingernails (can’t use a razor) and we finally see the intricate drawings he has made that cover all the walls (pyramids, Egyptian hieroglyphics, Greek and Roman letters, eagles, symbols, etc.).
Cut to a city street outside a building where a female police officer has been shot and is pinned down behind a busted police car as bullets fly over her head. There are many police officers pinned down behind their cars as well, as it seems the bad guys have the place holed up. It becomes apparent that there is a bank-robbery hostage situation going on where the leader of the robbers Red (Eddie Marsan) holds a detonator and we see that several of the hostages have bombs strapped to them. Just then, the police officers look up to see Hancock fly in and manage to land softly next to the police chief and a group of officers. He is dressed in the outfit and makes a comment that “Yeah it’s a little tight” when they stare at him. Hancock then proceeds to say ‘Good Job’ to them, repeating it three times to all of the surrounding officers (he did learn after all). Hancock learns that the female officer needs help and that the robbers also have a 50 caliber cannon. Hancock seems un-phased by this as he walks up to the overturned police car, reveling in that he is finally going to do well, as he waves and smiles at the passing FBI and police officers who are ducking to try and avoid being shot. The robbers shot him many times out the window but he just brushes it off his outfit. They try using the cannon, but Hancock just knocks the rounds out of the way with his hands, blowing up a nearby truck (great shot). He arrives next to the downed officer and immediately tells her ‘Good Job’. He then asks if he has permission to touch her body to save her, and that its not sexual, etc. (very funny), and she eventually gets tired of his politically correctness and yells at him to just get her out of here. He then proceeds to lift up the police car with one hand and uses it as a shield to carry her out of harm’s way. The police chief then tells Hancock that he needs him to end this now. Hancock nods and flies off into the sky. We then get the view of Red and his crew inside the bank, who are now wondering where Hancock has gone. They hear the sounds of him flying but they don’t know where he is. Suddenly there is a crash through one of the windows and one of his crew is gone in a flash. This repeats several times until Red is the only one left. Hancock finally reveals himself and asks Red to give himself up. Red explains to Hancock that he is holding a detonator with a dead man’s switch (if he lets go, all the hostages will die) and that it’s a stalemate. He says that since Hancock got rid of all his guys, that now he’s going to have to break into the vault and take out the 30 million in cash and fly him to safety. Hancock refuses and Red calls him an ‘A**hole’ which causes that familiar angry twitch from Hancock at hearing this word. Hancock reaches out and grabs a metal desk lap and flattens it into a discus shape and begins sharpening it with his fingernail. He then turns to Red and says the familiar ‘Call me an a**hole one more time’. Red gets it half out before Hancock throws his make-sift discus at Red, cutting off his hand, which still holds the detonator. Hancock then comes out of the building and tells all the police officers around ‘Good Job’. The police chief looks at him and says, ‘No’, ‘Good Job to you’. Hancock is then cheered on and applauded for while Ray who has been watching it all on TV jumps for joy. Hancock waves one last time to the public then flies off, amid loud cheers.
Cut to that evening, where Ray, Mary, and Hancock get out at a fancy restaurant to eat, and Hancock is greeted by paparazzi and screaming girls. There is a funny scene where Hancock attempts to smile for the cameras (shows his gums etc.). They go inside and sit down together, and Ray begins asking Hancock about his origins (are you an alien? Did you come in on a meteorite, etc.). Hancock laughs and says that No, he’s from Miami. We then learn where Hancock came from…He woke up in a regular hospital in Miami with a cracked skull and amnesia, and he didn’t remember anything prior to that night. All he had in his pockets was some bubblegum and two tickets to a movie (Boris Karlov Frankenstein). When he went to leave, the nurse asked him for his “John Hancock”, and he thought that that was his name, thus we learn why he is called Hancock. Ray wonders why he never read anything about this in the papers, and Hancock comments that it probably would have been in the papers 80 years ago. Thus we learn that Hancock doesn’t age at all (he’s immortal). Hancock then reveals why he is so sad and depressed all the time, as he wonders what kind of ‘bastard he must have been’ if nobody was there to claim him, he was just alone, he had nobody and no memory. Through all of this we see cuts of Mary who is listening to Hancock’s story and beginning to cry as she hears it, tears silently running down her face. That night Hancock puts Ray to bed (he is very drunk) and goes down to the kitchen where he is greeted by Mary. Mary notices that there is a bruise on Hancock’s hand and holds it. There is silence between them and then they lean into eachother and kiss. The kiss is very short as suddenly Mary tosses him off and throws him out through the wall eventually crashing into a car a good thirty meters away from the house. Hancock gets up dazed to see Mary fly through the hole in the house and land ontop of him where he tells him that if he tells Ray or Aaron anything about this that he will be sorry.
Cut to the next morning, where we see Mary calmly getting Orange Juice and breakfast foods out of the fridge. We see Ray stagger down the stairs and get some coffee, and then he notices the hole in the wall and Mary getting stuff from the fridge halfway down the street. Mary explains that the hole in the wall was caused by Hancock sneezing. Mary then tells Ray that they’re going on vacation to Australia for awhile to get away from it all. Hancock then arrives, and is greeted by Ray who tells him ‘Gasundheit’. Hancock is confused and then sees that Mary told Ray that he sneezed. Hancock says that he usually sneezes when he gets dust up there or gets really surprised. While Ray is walking around and talking to them from the other room, there is a funny exchange between Mary and Hancock as Mary silently tries to get him to leave. While this is going on, Hancock tests her invulnerability (stabbing her with a barbeque fork which bends when it contacts her skin, and smashing her across the back of the head with a rolling pin which shatters on impact). Hancock is about to smack her in the head with two frying pans when she turns around and catches him before he can do it. Finally he silently convinces her to come to his house tomorrow afternoon, and at the same time Ray reveals that he has a meeting tomorrow at exactly the same time they are supposed to meet.
Cut back to the prison where we see Red (bank robber) (who now has a hook for his left hand) sitting on a bench with the large guy on his right and the small guy on his left (the one’s who Hancock stuffed up the other’s…). Red convinces them that they need to get their power back which Hancock stole from them. All three of them hold hands (and one hook) and swear vengeance.
We then see Hancock sitting out front of his house when Mary flies in and lands infront of him. They go into the house together and Mary looks in disgust at the state of his house then her eyes get teary as she sees the contents of the green metal box from earlier; the bubblegum and the two movie tickets from that night 80 years ago. Hancock says that they’re the same, she says no they’re not, that they’re opposites. Hancock asks who are we, she says “Gods, Angels…we’ve been called different things over the ages”. Hancock asks if there are others like them, she says “That there were but they paired up and died, and now they are the last ones”. She at first claims that they’re brother and sister but Hancock says that brothers and sisters don’t kiss like they did the other night. She also tells him that she is much stronger than he is. This escalates into a fight and they fly off together, eventually crashing into the city streets. At the same time this is going on, Ray is trying to pitch his All-Heart logo to another company, but they keep trying to get him to talk about Hancock and not about the logo. Mary and Hancock face off in the city street, where suddenly Hancock realizes just how much stronger she is as she also has weather powers as tornadoes and lightning flash all around and begin to encircle them as she drops a transport truck on top of his head. Throughout this entire fight, she is yelling at him for leaving her and she doesn’t want to go through that again, etc. Their damage eventually reaches Ray’s building where they crash through the window, tearing a hole in the side of it. Eventually Hancock lands on top of her in a clearing and she is crying saying that he was mean and left her and she can’t do it again, and she’s happy with Ray. Hancock holds her down and says that he doesn’t know what she’s talking about. Mary then looks up to see Ray looking on from the broken building right at her, and Mary realizes that Ray now knows.
Cut back to Ray’s house, where Ray is sitting in a chair staring off into space, and Mary flies through the window, and Ray gets upset at her immediately for lying to him all this time, “Something you would have want to have brought up on a first date, I’m allergic to cats, I’m immortal, these things are important!” At this point Hancock arrives and like Ray asks for an explanation. She then reveals that technically Hancock is her husband, and that they are built in pairs, and the reason why Hancock is in LA now is because she is there (it’s simple physics, they are fated to be together). Mary tells Ray that she is denying that physics and fate because she loves him and wants to be with him. Mary then asks Hancock to leave, and eventually he does, sadly going away.
Hancock is very upset as he walks into a liquor store and grabs two bottles of whiskey and heads back to the front of the store. On a television set in the corner of the store, a news story reveals that Red and a bunch of prisoners broke out of the prison and have been rounding up graduate students from various fields (obviously trying to find a weakness in Hancock). Hancock brings the liquor to the cashier who then tells him that his total is $91.11. Hancock says that that is a ridiculous unfair price. Then we see that behind the counter there are two guys holding the clerk at gunpoint. The clerk leans forward and covers the last 1 on the price to reveal $91.1 (or 911). Hancock looks at him in realization and the clerk indicates with his eyes that they are on the ground next to him. Hancock sighs and leans down and punches through the barrier and pulls out one of the guys and throws him against the back wall. The second guy stands up and holds the clerk hostage. Hancock then has a revelation as he says to the guy “You’re going to take it just because you can, but does that make it okay to take it?” Hancock reaches behind himself and picks up a candy bar, and asks the guy who he thinks will win between his candy bar and his gun. The guy then shoots at Hancock twice and Hancock throws the candy bar at him which takes him out and knocks him out through the front window. Hancock smiles at the clerk and says that he’s sorry about his window. The clerk doesn’t say anything and just looks at Hancock in shock. Hancock frowns and you see two blood spots forming around his midsection where he was shot. He places his hand to the holes and it comes back covered in blood. Hancock looks up in shock and then collapses to the ground.
Cut to the hospital where Hancock is being rushed into the emergency room by many doctors. They are about to put a needle in his arm, and he groggily tells them that it wont work but surprisingly the needle goes right into his skin. We see the new story on TV wondering how Hancock could have been hurt, and we see Ray and Aaron watching it on TV at home. Hancock is lying in stable condition on the bed, when he looks up to see Mary walk in and sit next to him on his bed. He asks her what is going on, and she tells him that he’s becoming mortal the longer they are close together. That’s the catch and that’s what happened to the others, they paired off, became mortal and eventually died. She tells him that eventually he will lose all his powers and be completely mortal if he doesn’t go away from her. Hancock says that he doesn’t want to go away. Admist tears she reaches for his shoulder and exposes a scar, and tells him “Summer of 3 BC, they had swords, they tried to get me, but you saved me”. She then reaches for his left arm and exposes another scar, “1850 our house was on fire, you came in and pulled me out”. Hancock asks groggily “80 years ago?” She responds “We were in Miami going to see a movie, Frankenstein, when we were mugged, you tried to protect me, and they hit you, I’ve never seen anyone hit that hard before, there was so much blood. When I came to get you in the hospital you didn’t know who I was, so I left so that you could live”. She then tells Hancock that although they are the same, he was different than the others, he is the “insurance policy of the Gods”, it is his job to be a hero and to protect humanity. At this point Ray and Aaron come in and see them together and they wait outside for her.
At this point Red and his two cohorts come out of the elevator and proceed to shoot Mary in the chest with a shotgun blast and she falls to the ground (she is becoming mortal too). Hancock desperately pulls himself out of the bed to shield her from any more shots and he gets shot twice more. The doctors come in and pull Mary up onto a bed and begin working on her. Hancock then proceeds to throw one of the guys out the window and to his probable death. As he does this the larger guy comes from behind him and stabs him in the back with a large curved blade. Hancock screams in pain and pulls it out, and then turns around only to be beaten severely with an oxygen tank the guy is holding. Every time Hancock gets hit or hurt at this point, Mary shrieks out in pain and clutches the area where Hancock was hit on her body (further playing on their connection). The oxygen tank eventually explodes and causes a fireball that sends Hancock flying through a wall and landing on the floor next to the broken open window. The fire sets off the sprinkler system, covering everyone in water, and giving a nice rain effect for the final encounter. Hancock gains enough strength to throw the second guy out the window, but is then shot three more times by Red and he collapses. Hancock crawls on all fours near death towards Red, as he belittles and insults him, saying that he’s done. Just as Red is about to shoot Hancock in the head and finish him off, Ray appears and in a moment of comic relief cuts off Red’s other hand, just before hitting him right in the chest with the axe and knocking him to the ground. Hancock thanks Ray and tries to keep up his strength but his eyes close as Mary’s heart flatlines. The doctors rush over to Hancock and try to get his eyes to respond to light to see if he is still alive. They begin to shock Mary, but her heart isn’t beating. There is about a minute of focus on both of their dead faces, and then suddenly Hancock’s eyes open again. He looks over at Mary’s now lifeless body and begins to move away from her, crawling away and falling out the window. Hancock lands in the middle of the street and desperately pulls himself to his feet. He tries to fly away but gets only a few feet off the ground before coming back down, he tries again and again, continuing to fail but getting a little higher each time. Then Mary’s heart beat monitor beeps, and the beep gets stronger the further Hancock gets away. Finally Hancock yells out and jumps into the sky, rocketing towards the moon and out of sight. Mary’s eyes open and she gasps for air and the screen goes dark.
ONE MONTH LATER…
You see Ray and Mary walking with Aaron at a carnival in LA, while Ray is finally learning about his wife’s true nature (apparently Attila the Hun was cross-eyed and she didn’t sleep with JFK because she was in Cuba at the time). At this point Ray’s cell phone rings and he moves to get it. Then we see the other end of the phone call, and its Hancock, sitting on the edge of a building in New York City with a large golden eagle sitting next to him, wearing his suit and with a Bluetooth wireless in his ear talking to Ray. Ray is happy he called and that everything is going well and that Mary is okay, etc. Hancock then tells Ray to look up in the sky. Ray looks up and at first doesn’t see anything then he notices the full moon…with his red All-Heart logo emblazoned across it. Hancock tells him that he knew he was going to change the world. Ray tears up and says thank you, as Hancock says he has to go but he’ll keep in touch. He hangs up the phone, looks out on the city, and the eagle next to him flies away. Hancock falls off the building and spends a moment in free fall before rocketing out above the city streets…fade to black.
MID-AFTER CREDITS SCENE…
You see a mugger holding a girl hostage at gunpoint while surrounded by police cars on the streets of New York. Hancock lands next to him and tries to negotiate with him, while the mugger makes references to his costume (Wolverine wannabe, etc.). Hancock seems to be making progress with the guy until he calls him an ‘A**hole’. Hancock freezes and you see that twitch in his eye as he turns to him and says “Call me an A**hole one more time”…end.
