Sherlock Holmes 3: A Promising Filming Update from Robert Downey Jr.
For nearly 14 years, Robert Downey Jr. has played Tony Stark. However, before Iron Man joined The Avengers as an official member, many fans recognised him as Sherlock Holmes. The actor’s first appearance as the renowned detective came in 2009, when he faced off against Lord Henry Blackwood and Irene Adler with Jude Law’s Dr. John Watson. In 2011, Downey starred in A Game of Shadows, a sequel to that popular film in which the world’s finest detective faced off against Professor Moriarty, the character’s famous arch-nemesis. The world believed he was dead at the conclusion of the film, but viewers were let in on Holmes’ secret, as he was alive and well. Despite the fact that a third film was announced in 2011, it has yet to be completed. It was promised multiple times during the year, but nothing came of it—most likely because of Downey’s intensive commitment with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, it seems that the long-awaited threequel is finally arriving… hopefully. Another Exciting Development for Holmes? According to One Take News, various sources have told them that Sherlock Holmes 3 will begin production at the end of the year. Atlanta, Georgia is claimed to be the location of production. If this information is correct, the picture might be released in late 2023 or early 2024. Will a third Sherlock Holmes film ever be made? Some may claim that Sherlock Holmes 3 squandered its opportunity to shine. After all, the entertainment environment has changed significantly since 2011. When it comes to the renowned detective, various different versions of the role have become very popular. The BBC drama featuring Benedict Cumberbatch is the best example. While the series was already running by the time the second Sherlock Holmes was published, its popularity increased after the second season finale in 2012. Those who have seen will recognise the precise cliffhanger that triggered it. Enola Holmes, a Netflix original series starring Millie Bobbie Brown and Henry Cavil, was released lately. The picture performed well for the streaming service, becoming the most viewed film on Netflix in its first five days. In fact, a sequel will be released before the end of the year. Given the availability of both projects, can Sherlock Holmes 3 expect to attract the same audience it previously did? Its lengthy layoff may be crucial in building enough excitement and interest for the film, not to mention the return of Robert Downey Jr. to a major part. Fans will just have to cross their fingers that everything goes perfectly this time. If there are any additional delays, Downey may wind himself repeating his Tony Stark role in Avengers: Secret Wars before setting foot on a new Sherlock Holmes movie.
