SHERLOCK HOLMES 3 Officially Announced For Christmas 2020; Robert Downey Jr. & Jude Law Set To Return

With Robert Downey Jr.'s time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe possibly coming to a close, it looks like he's just about ready to revive another fan-favorite character as Sherlock Holmes 3 is now official.

Nine years after his duel with Moriarty, the good Detective Holmes is finally ready for his next case.

Warner Bros. has announced today that the long-awaited Sherlock Holmes 3 will finally make its way into theaters worldwide on December 25, 2020. Both stars Robert Downey Jr. (Avengers: Infinity War) and Jude Law (Captain Marvel) are expected to reprise their fan-favorite roles as Holmes and Watson, respectively. 

While Guy Ritchie directed the first two installments, it remains to be seen whether or not he'll return for the third chapter or if the studio will seek out a new director, which seems to be the more likely scenario. Chris Brancato (Hannibal) penned the script for the upcoming installment.

Sherlock Holmes and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows both opened over the Christmas holiday in 2009 and 2011, respectively, and both performed exceptionally well at the box office with the former bringing in over $524 million worldwide on a $90 million budget and the sequel topping $545.5 million on a $125 million budget, although the latter did have to compete directly with Tom Cruise's critically-acclaimed Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol.

As for competition, the film is set to open a week after James Cameron's Avatar 2, which may seem less than ideal, but then again, the original opened a week after the first Avatar, so it should be fine. It's also set to open opposite family-friendly affairs, including an Untitled Disney live-action film and Sing 2

So, what do you guys think? Excited? Sound off with your thoughts below!
