Robert Downey Jr. Wants To Turn The Sherlock Holmes Movies Into A Cinematic Universe

Robert Downey Jr. has revealed that he wants to turn the Sherlock Holmes movies into a shared cinematic universe, so the SHCU if you will.

We already know that Robert Downey Jr. is getting ready to be in a third Sherlock Holmes movie.

This third film won’t be directed by Guy Ritchie who made the first film.

It was revealed a while back that Dexter Fletcher will be helming the next Sherlock Holmes film.

He’ll be working off a script written by Chris Brancato.

I do love the idea of them changing things up a bit.

I really enjoyed the Ritchie movies, yet it’s never a bad idea to get some new blood into a franchise like this one.

And it seems as though Robert Downey Jr. likes the idea of this becoming an almost MCU-like cinematic universe.

“Why do a third movie if you’re not going to be able to spin off into some real gems of diversity and other times and elements?” said Downey (via Collider), speaking to a panel about the possibility of simply making a third Sherlock Holmes film.

“At this point, we really feel that there is not a mystery-verse built out anywhere, and Conan Doyle is the definitive voice in that arena, I think, to this day.”

Honestly, this sounds interesting as far as I’m concerned.

I like Robert Doweny Jr.’s version of Sherlock Holmes and would love to see more of these movies in the future.
