Besides the MCU, Robert Downey Jr. is the lead of the Sherlock Holmes franchise, and he\u2019s expressed recently that he would love to come back for a third movie. The good news is, the film is finally moving forward\u2014just without director Guy Ritchie.\r\n\r\nAccording to Empire, Dexter Fletcher (Rocketman) has been hired to helm the third (and probably last) movie in the Sherlock Holmes franchise. Original stars Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law are set to return as their versions of Holmes and Watson.\r\n\r\nThe first two films were actually directed by Guy Ritchie, but nothing has been said about why he\u2019s not coming back for this third movie; I don\u2019t see why he shouldn\u2019t either. I mean, sure The Man from UNCLE and King Arthur ended up bombing in the box office, but Aladdin is close to making a billion. You\u2019d think he\u2019s gain enough confidence to come back to a franchise that people actually liked.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=-t1a4anQxBA\r\n\r\nGoing back to Fletcher though, I think he\u2019ll do a decent enough job taking over for Ritchie. Then again, his style doesn\u2019t really pop out like Ritchie\u2019s does, and I thought his works on Eddie the Eagle and Bohemian Rhapsody were just fine. Then again, Rocketman did get a lot of good buzz, and I\u2019m sure that\u2019s probably what landed him the directing gig for Sherlock.\r\n\r\nNo official release date has been announced for Sherlock Holmes 3, but it\u2019s said production is aiming for the film to come out in December 2021.
