Robert Downey Jr. is finally coming back to take on the role of the world’s most famous detective, Sherlock Holmes. We last saw him in this iconic character in Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. This periodic action mystery film is a sequel to the 2011 film Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. Sherlock Holmes 3 is the third installment of this franchise. Dexter Fletcher is the new director of this film. Just a month after the release of the 2nd film, in January 2012 the rumbles of a third film started. In October 2014, producer Susan Downey confirmed that the development of a new film is in progress. But production had to hold up a little longer for actor Robert Downey Jr. to finish his Iron Man 3. This film is set to hit cinemas on December 21, 2021. Warner Bros. Pictures is distributing Sherlock Holmes 3.

Synopsis of Sherlock Holmes 3 (2021):

The events of Sherlock Holmes 3 are going to take place many years after the second film, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. This film will reunite detective Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) with Dr. John Watson (Jude Law) again. These two characters have not seen each other for a long time. So, this film will be a reunion event for this most iconic pair after quite some time of separation. They will be seen on the screen exactly 10 years after they were last on screen together.

Robert Downey Jr. is returning back to reprise his role of Sherlock Holmes. And to make pair with him Jude Law will be there in the role of Dr. John Watson. We do not know whether Kelly Reilly will return in this third installment. She portrayed the role of Watson’s wife Mary in the previous film. The returning of Stephen Fry (Sherlock’s brother Mycroft) and Eddie Marsan (Inspector Lestrade) is uncertain too. There is a talk of Johnny Depp has been offered to take a role in Sherlock Holmes 3. But this news has not been confirmed yet. Peaky Blinders star Paul Anderson is joining the cast. He is best known for his role as Arthur Shelby in the historical crime series Peaky Blinders. The first two movies of this franchise were filmed somewhere in England. But this third installment will take place in California.

Story of Sherlock Holmes 3 (2021)

Production of this film has not started yet. So, there is no footage to make any trailer or teaser. Without any teaser trailer or theatrical trailer, it’s hard to guess what is really going to happen in this threequel. The previous movie of this franchise was titled Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. But at this moment the threequel has not a proper name. It is simply known as Sherlock Holmes 3. It makes it harder to guess the story detail of Sherlock Holmes 3

All the story of the Sherlock Holmes saga shows us the relationship between detective Sherlock Holmes and his sidekick Dr, John Watson. We cannot think of a single movie without having Dr, John Watson beside Sherlock Holmes. They are always dependent on each other. Even in the previous film, we saw how Sherlock Holmes interrupted Watson’s personal life. But it was nothing but their strong bonding and co-independency. Jude Law has already stated that “We hope to propel the story forward. As always, the essence of the story is their codependency.

We’re going to examine — since it’s been several years since we’ve seen them — we’re going to play up the fact that they haven’t seen each other for a long time either’. This third film will be more about their friendship and reunion after a long break. There is almost nine years break between the second and the third installment. In these nine years, they have not been out for any adventure. So, this third installment will be a reunion program for these two. 

Sherlock Holmes 3 is going to introduce us to a new character. She is a young woman named Sidney Bloom. Sidney Bloom will be in a lot of scenes in this film as she is an important character. Sidney is an undercover agent. She may appear as the new love interest of Sherlock Holmes. Sherlock’s previous lover Irene Adler (Rachel McAdams) died in the second installment, Sherlock Holmes: The Game of Shadows. The main protagonist of this film is an American named Senator Cornelius Guest. He is somehow connected with a robbery. So, it makes more sense that Sherlock Holmes 3 can be a heist film. Jared Harris may return to reprise his role of Moriarty though he was supposed to be dead in the second film. But it seems like his never-ending rivalry with Sherlock Holmes will bring him back.
