It’s been revealed that Henry Cavill will be playing Sherlock Holmes in Netflix’s upcoming Enola Holmes movie which is coming out very soon.
First off, let me say that Henry Cavill would make for a very interesting Sherlock Holmes.
He’d be a bit bigger than what we’ve come to expect from the Arthur Conan Doyle character.
However, I think he’d be pretty darn good.
That said, this upcoming Netflix movie isn’t about Sherlock.
It’s actually about his and Mycroft Holmes’ rebellious teen sister, Enola Holmes.
She’s going to be played by Stranger Things’ Millie Bobbie Brown in the movie.
Netflix recently revealed via Twitter that the movie was going to be coming to the streaming platform very soon.

Sam Claflin will be playing Mycroft and Helena Bonham Carter will be starring as their mother.
It all sounds very interesting and the whole thing is based on a book by Nancy Springer
Jack Thorne wrote the film’s screenplay and the movie will be directed by Harry Bradbeer who directed all of Fleabag’s episodes.
Here’s a synopsis of the movie:
Based on the beloved Edgar-nominated book series, Enola Holmes tells the story of Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes’ rebellious teen sister Enola, a gifted super-sleuth in her own right who often outsmarts her brilliant siblings.
When her mother mysteriously disappears on her 16th birthday, Enola seeks help from her older brothers. But soon realizing they’re less interested in solving the case than in packing her off to finishing school, Enola does the only thing a smart, resourceful and fearless young 1880s woman can do… she runs away to London to find her.
Meeting a cast of memorable characters along the way, Enola’s caught in the middle of a conspiracy that could alter the course of political history.
Enola Holmes puts a dynamic new female twist on the world’s greatest detective and his brilliant family.
