Robert Downey Jr. was pretty clear on the fact that he will not be doing Iron Man 4 which was an utter sad and dreadful news, but the Only You star has said yes for Sherlock Holmes upcoming part. Yes, the actor is serious about saying no to Iron Man 4 and yes to Sherlock Holmes 3.
During his promotion at Reddit AMA for his upcoming release The Judge, he said, “Looks like Sherlock Holmes 3 is going to happen.” And that one statement grabbed all the attention that was needed. The 49-year-old further stated, “Yes, we have Sherlock Holmes 3 in development. We want it to be the best of the series, so that’s pretty tall order.” The Sherlock Holmes star is also looking for Perry Mason property for future development. This will help in creating the 1931 atmosphere. A similar technique was used in the previous two Sherlock Holmes movies.
Jude Law also mentioned that they had a meeting over this in the first half of 2014 and believes that plot is written but again, the big house Warner Brothers have yet to agree to pay. Downey Jr. also went on further praising another Sherlock Holmes, Benedict Cumberbatch. “I screen envy,” said RDJ. Cumberbatch plays Holmes for the BBC.
The Iron Man star ended the interview by making a statement, “There are no plans for an Iron Man 4. That’s a valid question. Like it hasn’t made enough money? Yeah, I guess they have too much money or something. There is no script for Iron Man 4. They do have a plan and I think they’re going to announce it soon.”
