Sherlock Holmes 3 has been one of those films that just can’t lock in a release date for one reason or another. A lot of that has to do with the fact that Robert Downey Jr. (Sherlock Holmes) and Jude Law (John Watson) are busy people working on various projects, and the script is being worked out. As such, the capper to the trilogy has been pushed back from time to time.
So it comes as no surprise that the final chapter in that trilogy has now been pushed back to a 2021 release. More on the report below.
The game is afoot for the Sherlock Holmes film franchise. Shortly after Robert Downey Jr. starred as Iron Man in the titular film, the actor moved onto yet another title role in 2009 in Guy Ritchie‘s Sherlock Holmes, and then reprised the role once more in the 2011 sequel, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. Though the sequel wasn’t as much of a hit as its predecessor, both films were enough of a commercial success that Warner Bros wanted more. News regarding Sherlock Holmes 3 has been slow going, but with Downey Jr. currently on the press tour for Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War, journalists will undoubtedly be asking the actor not only about the film he stars in, but others as well.

Reddit AMAs are a great place for fans to gather and have their questions answered by a host who is often busy. Which makes Robert Downey Jr.‘s AMA so intriguing. To help promote the upcoming The Judge, Downey Jr. participated in the AMA, where he was asked a variety of questions about his involvement in Marvel properties like Avengers: Age of Ultron, Avengers 3, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and other successful franchises like Sherlock Holmes 3 and popular shows like Doctor Who and Sherlock. He also spoke of potential upcoming projects such as Perry Mason.
Not only that, but the actor appeared on Ellen, and confirmed that Iron Man 4 is under development, something that he and Gwyneth Paltrow have denied in the past. So what happened.
Hit the jump to see what he had to say on the AMA and a video of his Ellen appearance.
Where there’s one sequel, there is likely to be even more. And while Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows hasn’t even hit theaters yet, WB is looking to move forward on a third film in the burgeoning franchise.
Deadline is reporting that WB has tapped Drew Pearce to pen a third film in the franchise, which is interesting, if only for the fact that Pearce is also the man behind the pen for the third film in the Iron Man franchise.
