Enola Holmes 2 featuring Millie Bobby Brown and Henry Cavill, premiered on Netflix on November 4, 2022. The film is a direct sequel to the 2020 Netflix original, Enola Holmes. The movie introduced Millie Bobby Brown as Enola Holmes, the younger sister of Sherlock Holmes. It is based on Nancy Springer’s The Enola Holmes Mysteries and follows Enola Holmes’ journey to becoming a great spy like her brother, Sherlock Holmes. The star cast of the film has returned with the sequel and the film once again successfully impressed the audience.
Henry Cavill appeared as Sherlock Holmes in the 2020 film for the first time. The Man of Steel star has a bigger role in the sequel as he goes on to work with his younger sister to solve a case. Following the release of the film, Cavill shares his thoughts on a potential Enola Holmes spin-off focused on Sherlock Holmes.
Henry Cavill Could Feature in a Spin-off Focused on Sherlock Holmes
Henry Cavill has played a number of roles throughout his Hollywood career. The actor first appeared as Sherlock Holmes in the 2020 Netflix original, Enola Holmes. Its sequel Enola Holmes 2 was recently released on the platform following Enola Holmes’ adventure as a detective.
The sequel starts right after the events of the first film. Enola attempts to start her own detective agency. However, she struggles to get cases as people are not interested to hire a female detective. Eventually, a young girl comes to her asking Enola to find her missing sister.
While the first film focused on Enola and Sherlock Holmes working separately, the events of the sequel lead them to work together. Both of their investigations lead them to solve the case together.
Enola Holmes 2 star Millie Bobby Brown has already shared her ideas regarding a threequel to the franchise. This may hint towards Enola Holmes 3. However, the ending of Enola Holmes 2 does a perfect setup for a spin-off based on Cavill’s character, with the introduction of Dr. John Watson.
Following the film, there have been assumptions that Netflix might be planning an Enola Holmes spin-off. The spin-off would focus on Henry Cavill as Sherlock Holmes and follow his journey as the great fictional detective.
However, there have been no confirmations on the spin-off, but fans would love to see the Mission Impossible star as Sherlock Holmes.
Henry Cavill’s Busy Schedule May Delay the Spin-off
In his recent interview with Collider, Henry Cavill addressed the possibilities of an Enola Holmes spin-off focused on his character in the film. Talking about the spinoff he said that his busy schedule will be a major factor in deciding whether such a spinoff could actually happen.
“As we know, I’m getting busier, and my plate is becoming slightly more full, so I think it’s all about making sure that I have the time to serve the characters as I need to,” Cavill said.
The Justice League star also mentioned that it is important for him to give everything he can, to every character he plays. Cavill has recently made his comeback as Superman and is set to return with a sequel to the 2013 Man of Steel.
Other than Man of Steel 2, the British actor is also cast in many upcoming movies, including Argylle, The Rosie Project, The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, Highlander, and reportedly Squadron 42. Following his comeback, the actor has also declared that he would no longer be a part of Netflix’s action-adventure series, The Witcher .
Henry Cavill currently appears as Sherlock Holmes in Netflix’s Enola Holmes 2. Enola Holmes and Enola Holmes 2 are available to stream on Netflix.
