The two series, on the other hand, are said to have characters other than Sherlock Holmes in the lead roles, characters who will be introduced in "Sherlock Holmes 3".
Variety reports that Robert Downey Jr. has two different spin-off series for its Sherlock Holmes movies under development at HBO Max. However, it has already been over a decade since "Sherlock Holmes" (2009) and "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows" (2011) premiered, two films that both managed to record over $ 500 million each.
But when it's finally time for the sequel "Sherlock Holmes 3" (which was supposed to premiere as early as December 2020), it seems at least that one plans to be considerably more ready to build on that "Sherlock universe "where we were able to follow Downey Jr. in the title role and Jude Law as Dr. John Watson. In recent times, both Benedict Cumberbatch (the "Sherlock" series) and Henry Cavill (the "Enola Holmes" films) have shouldered the role of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's master detective.
When it comes to the spin-off series, however, most things are still unclear. We do not even know which characters we will get to follow, especially considering that it is said that characters from the upcoming "Sherlock Holmes 3" will be in focus in these series. If the productions get the green light, Downey Jr. will. in any case, produce the new series together with his wife through their production company Team Downey, which is also behind "Perry Mason" at HBO Max and the Netflix series "Sweet Tooth".
Will you give the spin-off series a chance even if Downey Jr. only involved as a producer? Feel free to comment below!
