Benedict Cumberbatch isn’t the only high-profile actor to be playing Sherlock Holmes in popular culture, and the last we saw of Robert Downey Jr.’s iteration, he had faked his own death in a final chess match with his nemesis, Moriarity, and was spending his free time blending into common pieces of furniture.
As the Marvel Cinematic Universe has grown in its interconnectivity over the past few years as well, there hasn’t been much movement made on a third installment in the film franchise, though it looks like we may not know about it until it starts shooting, according to Downey, that is.
During a recent interview with Shortlist, the actor revealed that he, Ritchie, Jude Law, and the rest of the film’s creative team are currently discussing a third installment right now, with a possible shooting schedule later this year:
“We’re talking about it right now. If we could shoot it on Skype, we could have the whole [movie] done in a week. When we’re making those Sherlock movies it is off the hook. [So] we’ll attempt to make one this year. It really is a big deal to go and do those movies. I’m tired all the time, but I’m so excited about it.”
So basically, we may see a Sherlock Holmes 3 sometime in the near future… or we may not, I guess. It doesn’t sound like RDJ is really all that confident about any details or confirmations regarding the project anyways though, and since he’s gonna be a bit busy over the next few months with both Avengers: Infinity War and Spider-Man: Homecoming, I suppose it might be a bit difficult fitting a third Sherlock Holmes in as well.
Then again, who knows? It could happen.
