‘Who asked for a sequel?’: Netflix reportedly paying a whopping $10M to Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown for Enola Holmes 2

We’re all very aware of the movie about Sherlock Holmes’s sister, Enola Holmes. The movie released in September of 2020 starred the incredible young actress of Stranger Things, Millie Bobby Brown.

Millie Bobby Brown is very well known for her role as Eleven in the supernatural and science fiction Netflix show, Stranger Things which is also awaiting its fifth and last season.  She is considered to be one of the most talented young actresses in Hollywood and she is most likely getting more projects than any other actress her age.

Enola Holmes And Her Brother Sherlock

The first Enola Holmes movie features the original character from Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes series, Sherlock Holmes himself. Apart from these two, there is also both of their elder brother, Mycroft Holmes who was played by actor Sam Claflin.

However, the movie was criticized by the fans of Arthur Conan Doyle’s books and by the general public when it was announced that Superman from DC comics would be playing the legendary detective, Sherlock Holmes.

The choice of Henry Cavill as Sherlock Holmes was seen as amateurish by some parts of the audience and brilliant by others.

It truly was confusing since no one was sure about the casting as Henry Cavill’s Sherlock played a supporting role and wasn’t as dominant.

It’s true. Millie Bobby Brown is brilliant. But is she brilliant enough to be paid a whopping amount of $10 million for a role?

We won’t know if this payment is well deserved or not until we watch the upcoming Enola Holmes Sequel.

A considerable part of the Sherlock Fandom is highly unsure about the decision to make another Enola Holmes. The reason could be anything, from failed casting to a mediocre story but some part of the audience has had mixed feelings about this.

Netflix is now being accused of putting valuable money in the wrong place (especially with so many pending projects that fans have been asking for) and this seems to be rubbing the audience the wrong way.

Well, we can’t really judge the public’s decision. They have thoughtfully produced their opinions on these subjects and we can trust their judgment. If Netflix can have the budget for Enola Holmes 2, maybe another season of The Society should be considered as well?

Enola Holmes 2 is set to release later this year. No confirmed release date has been shared yet.
