What can we expect to see in Sherlock Holmes 3?
Sherlock Holmes is expected to be back in his sneaky detective mode in this movie, after surviving the ‘great fall’. People thought Sherlock Holmes killed himself in an attempt to eliminate Professor Moriarty. But at the end of the second movie we are relieved to see that he indeed is still well and alive. It will be compelling to see whether Professor Moriarty will return or not for the third film in the franchise. Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock Holmes and the rivalry between Sherlock Holmes and Professor Moriarty are equally important for the successful run of this wonderful film series.
