This is going to be a very, very long and confusing movie, isn't it? The backstory alone is... incredible.

Okay this movie looks like a continuity snarl that gets retconed in every trailer.

Every trailer I see makes me want to watch/buy the movie more.

I think that means they're good trailers. You may have a movie deal on your hands, or you would if I had any sort of authority to issue movie deals.
So Yeah.

@Joaqs: Um... no part of In Name Only canon has been retconned - not in the three existing trailers, at least.

The first trailer introduced The Detective, his badassness, and his thievery skills - The Watson also made an appearance. We discover that The Victim was killed with a model speech bubble.

The second trailer added to this, further demonstrating The Detective's badassness and his quips. It's also revealed that The Detective is, metaphorically, a tomato. The Other Victim is killed in the same manner, and The Detective accuses The Watson - almost certainly a false accusation, however.

This trailer focuses almost entirely on The Detective's backstory - which is covered in a separate section of the film from the main plot (The Victim's murder). Panel 3 does depict a present-day loss of monochromity, but this is also part of the overall, extremely complex plot.

The fact that the film will, probably, never be made means that I'll never need to get all of these separate plot threads tied into a coherent whole, fortunately.

Now all makes sense. Sadly that the film will be (probably) never be made, it would be an awesome film.

an awesome film with awesome... tomato



Narrator: In a world...
where all the trailers open with the words "in a world", followed by a minor lampshading of a feature of said world...

Narrator: All The Detective ever wanted... was to be awesome.
The Detective: I *am* awesome.

Narrator: Until the day... when everything changed.
The Detective: I'm still awesome, though.

Narrator: Take a journey... through The Detective's troubled past...

Ezio: Requiscat in pace.
The Detective-To-Be: NOOOOOOO!

The Detective-To-Be: A radioactive Templar... An omen! I shall become a Templar!
Narrator: You mean a detective, right?
The Detective-To-Be: Yes, a detective. *The* Detective.

Narrator: And then The Detective made a ring out of a green lantern...
The Detective: Rings are awesome.
Narrator: But then his home planet was destroyed and he was sent to Earth as a baby...
The Detective: I was still awesome, though.
Narrator: And then he got shrapnel in his heart and made a suit of armour in a cave. WITH A BOX OF SCRAPS!
The Detective: Mecha armour is awesome.

Narrator: Oh, and he got belted by gamma rays!
Narrator: And then inhaled the fumes from hard water!
The Way Of The Metagamer 2: In Name Only
Narrator: And was exposed to a cosmic storm!
Narrator: And then he got injected with Wolverine's DNA and his brain exploded!
