In spite of the Marvel Cinematic Universe being mostly confined to Disney+, Robert Downey Jr. will soon have a major presence on Netflix. One of Downey’s other well-known properties is coming to Netflix in April, according to a list provided by the streaming service on Wednesday. Downey and Jude Law’s Sherlock Holmes flicks will soon be accessible on Netflix.
The two Downey-starring Sherlock movies are expected to come on Netflix on April 1st, the biggest day for new arrivals. On the very first day of the month, Sherlock Holmes and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows will be available in the streamer’s lineup.
Despite the fact that there have only been two Sherlock Holmes films to date, this franchise has brought Downey a lot of fame and profit. With more than $524 million in global box office for the first film, A Game of Shadows, which came out two years later, earned over $544 million in the worldwide box office. A third Sherlock Holmes film is in the works, with Downey and Law expected to reprise their roles and Dexter Fletcher taking over as director. Guy Ritchie directed the franchise’s first two installments.
