'The Lone Ranger' trailer: Exploring the mysteries of Johnny Depp's new western -- VIDEO

(Page 8 of 9)

All we see of The Lone Ranger’s backstory is this blood-streaked badge.

We see boots lying in the sand, and some cruel buzzards hopping about, then the feet are dragged away.

In most versions of The Lone Ranger‘s origin story, he is a Texas Ranger who is part of a posse ambushed and killed by outlaws. Only he survives (hence the “lone” part of his title). He’s then discovered by Tonto, who helps him bury the bodies, and nursed back to health as the two become partners in fighting injustice in the Old West.

There’s no indication of where this fits into their story, but we then see the two heroes beside an overturned railway car, trapped in what seems to be the craziest possible train derailment in history.

A sideways locomotive, its wheels still chugging, is sliding at them at tremendous speed.

My guess is they survive. (Hmm … you think?)

Okay, so that’s the kind of thing that makes a friend for life.

But why the mask?
