Downey though has previously expressed his desire to not only continue the Sherlock Holmes series, but also his plans to take a page out of the Marvel playbook and build a shared universe. “At this point, we really feel that there is not a mystery-verse built out anywhere, and Conan Doyle is the definitive voice in that arena, I think, to this day,” he said of his hopes to build on the franchise. “So to me, why do [Sherlock Holmes 3] if you’re not going to be able to spin off into some real gems of diversity and other times and elements?”
While it sounds like a good idea on paper, not everyone is convinced that bringing back former stars is such a smart move. Don’t get me wrong, I get it. Why rehash old territory? That being said I would love nothing more than a Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse type event, just live action. Seems like it would be a no brainer to me, but I can’t imagine it’s easy to get that many big names in the same room for long.After all, Garfield has recently been busy with his upcoming film Mainstream, which will pair the actor up with Maya Hawke and Johnny Knoxville, to name a few of the bigger stars attached. While it’s certainly not a Spider-Man reprisal, the upcoming IFC film sounds like a fun venture along the lines of Garfield’s other independent work, such as Under The Silver Lake.
Jordan was happy to hear that the “Black Panther” sequel will be called “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” In fact, I broke the news to him because Marvel announced the name just minutes before we spoke.“Nice. Awesome,” Jordan said. “I like that. … Marvel does great, amazing work and the characters are awesome. We all took a hit with the loss of Chadwick, so for them trying to figure out how to move forward, I know it’s not an easy thing to do. So the fact that they settled on a title and figuring out this story, I think is truly incredible. If anybody could figure it out, it’s Ryan Coogler and Kevin Feige.”
