Prime Video is preparing its own interpretation of the legendary detective, but fans are still eagerly awaiting news about Robert Downey Jr.’s Sherlock Holmes 3. The good news is that the Marvel actor remains close with Jude Law, and now his wife Susan Downey, a producer, has provided updates on the future of the movie franchise and their on-screen partnership.

Robert Downey Jr., who brought Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s iconic sleuth to life in the 2009 film, earned a Golden Globe for his portrayal. The film’s success led to a 2011 sequel, which also performed well at the box office. Despite strong fan demand for a third film, various challenges have delayed its production. Any updates are eagerly welcomed by fans.

Susan Downey’s Insights

In a recent interview with Screen Rant about the anticipated third season of Sweet Tooth, Susan Downey discussed the status of Sherlock Holmes 3. She confirmed that the project remains “alive in our hearts” and that they are working on the perfect approach for the next chapter. Susan emphasized:

No, there’s no update other than it’s still very much alive in our hearts. Every day we talk about, ‘What is the best next version of that?’ Because anytime I see Robert and Jude together, which fortunately, I do get to see a few times a year, we hang out, and I’m just like, ‘Can I get these guys back on screen together?’ It’s magic. There needs to be a really strong reason, it needs to be a great story, and we do have some things in the works.

Production Challenges and Future Prospects

The road to a third Sherlock Holmes film has been challenging, making recent updates more exciting. Over the past decade, numerous writers have attempted to script the film, and there has been a change in the director’s seat, with Dexter Fletcher taking over from Guy Ritchie. Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted release dates and filming schedules. However, Susan Downey and Team Downey producer Amanda Burrell have emphasized that making this movie remains a primary focus.

With Robert Downey Jr.’s commitment to the Marvel Cinematic Universe ending in 2019 with Avengers: Endgame, he now has more availability for a project like Sherlock Holmes. Downey hasn’t joined another major franchise since, making this the perfect time for a return to Baker Street.

Future Outlook

Although there’s no set release date for Sherlock Holmes 3, the ongoing commitment from Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law, along with Susan Downey’s dedication, keeps hope alive. Fans can look forward to a promising new chapter in the Holmes saga.

While the release window for the Young Sherlock Holmes series on Prime Video is not yet available, ensure your Prime Video subscription is active. Meanwhile, you can check the 2024 movie schedule for upcoming titles.
