The report suggests that the filming will take place in Atlanta, Georgia. If the reports are correct, ideally the film should release in the year 2024. Fans have long awaited the third part of the detective series to release. However, the franchise has released a Tv show as well of the great fictional detective.
The third part of the movie was revealed back in 2011 only. But, the film has not begun. The promise of the third movie was made several years over the years but no reports confirmed the actual commencement of the film. Many assume the reason for the postponing of the movie is mainly due to Downey’s close connection to the MCu for so many years.
The Tv show starred Benedict Cumberbatch in the role of Sherlock and ran for four seasons on Netflix. 2011 era of cinemas saw a different type of cinemas. It was after the release of the web series that the franchise gained even more popularity.
Apart from this, we have also got another famous interpretation of Sherlock Holmes which is Elona Holmes. Elona Holmes starred Millie Bobbie brown in the lead alongside Henry Cavill as her elder brother. Enola is supposedly Sherlock’s sister who is as smart as him and takes a deep interest in solving mysteries.
However, even after so many years, many people’s favorite Sherlock remains to be Robert Downey Jr. and Benedict as well. Regardless of the fact, it would be exciting to relish Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock Holmes on the big screen after all these years. No confirmation of the movie has been officially made yet.
