All About Sherlock Holmes 3
8 years after the last Sherlock Holmes movie hit the theaters, fans were delighted that Robert Downey Jr is coming back after imparting his Iron Man duties. (You got to save the Earth first!) And this time Robert Downey Jr will be more than dedicated to the role of Sherlock Holmes with a 4th movie already in the pipeline.
But Sherlock Holmes 3 was pushed by a whole year in March 2019. The movie that was supposed to woo fans in 2020 will now be coming in 2021. Additionally, as a tradition, Sherlock Holmes 3 will be a Christmas treat (like its prequel) when it hits cinemas on 22 December 2021. This puts the next movie in the series exactly a decade apart from the last. Well, we do hope that this is not the case with Robert Downey Jr in Sherlock Holmes 4!
No plot details for Sherlock Holmes 3 have been disclosed as of now. But with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s 56 short stories and four novels, the writers will not fall short of good and gripping content for both Sherlock Holmes 3 and 4.
Keeping aside the plot details, the only known facts about the 2021-release are that Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law will be seen as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. Apart from that, Dexter Fletcher will direct the movie.
Robert Downey Jr and Sherlock Holmes 4 are confirmed!
Even before Sherlock Holmes 3, the news that Sherlock Holmes 4 is coming with Robert Downey as it’s face yet again, is here. Undoubtedly, with his acting skills and natural enigma that compliments with Sherlock Holmes’ character, there was no doubt that the actor would bag the role.
Warner Bros reportedly wanted Robert Downey Jr for Sherlock Holmes 4. And now he is coming. What’s more, you might actually get to see see the next two movies in the series back to back. So, with Sherlock Holmes 3 scheduled for a 2021 release, Sherlock Holmes 4 would release in December 2022.
Currently, Robert Downey Jr is focused on his YouTube series The Age of AI. Surely, his Tony Stark brain cells seem like the inspiration behind this.
