You’re gonna have to wait a little bit longer for ‘Sherlock Holmes 3,’ as Warner Bros. pushes the film back a year. The long-gestating sequel will now release December 21, 2021, ten years after the second film.

Also, both Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law will be reprising their roles, as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson respectfully.

The screenplay is from Chris Brancato, the creator of ‘Narcos’ and ‘Narcos: Mexico,’ as well as a writer on NBC’s ‘Hannibal. However, there is no director set as of now. Which is to say, Guy Ritchie, the director of the previous two films, has not signed on yet.

Meanwhile, ‘Sherlock Holmes 3’ will now compete against Sony’s ‘Hotel Transylvania 4.’ James Cameron’s ‘Avatar 3’ is also releasing five days before.

Also, the ‘Untitled Animation Event Film’ is no longer on the December 2021 date, because of the ‘Holmes’ shift.

Moreover, the original ‘Holmes’ date of December 25, 2020 will now go to an ‘Untitled Event Film.’ What could it be? Best guess: the ‘Aquaman’ spin-off ‘The Trench.’ The film is currently in the writing stage, and it will be a lower-budget horror film. Not only that, it would be right in the middle of the mainline ‘Aquaman’ films, 2 years after the first and 2 years before the second. If you ask me, this date is perfect for it.
