Henry Cavill has been great in the role of Sherlock Holmes in the Enola Holmes franchise. He just fits the role perfectly, and fans seem to love the way he has brought this most iconic character to life.
Many fans of Sherlock Holmes have been wondering if Cavill would get his own Sherlock Holmes solo movie, and there was a post-credits scene in Enola Holmes 2 that got fans thinking that could be the case and the rumors started.
In the post-credits scenes, we see Sherlock Holmes and John Watson meet for the first time. It was a great moment, and it really get me excited about the buzz for a potential solo film. But, according to Cavill, that’s not the direction that this is all going. He drove home the fact that this world of Enola Holmes is still very much about Enola.
“This universe is very much Enola’s, so she’ll always be involved. I think it’s important to make that connection between the two characters.”
Cavill went on to say that Millie Bobby Brown’s Enola character is crucial to the story, and she’s what makes this whole franchise unique:
“It wasn’t a deliberate attempt to make it my own. I think living within the Enola universe, in all the literature and all the other mediums, he doesn’t have an Enola. He has a Watson, but that’s very different from having an Enola. There’s a strong emotional connection to Enola there, there’s a similarity in how they’re raised. It allows for a slightly different viewpoint. When it comes to Enola, there’s always this emotionality with the connection, which is otherwise unique to the Enola universe.”
In Enola Homes 2, “Fresh off the triumph of solving her first case, Enola Holmes follows in the footsteps of her famous brother, Sherlock, and opens her own agency — only to find that life as a female detective-for-hire isn’t as easy as it seems,” reads the synopsis. “Resigned to accepting the cold realities of adulthood, she is about to close shop when a penniless matchstick girl offers Enola her first official job: to find her missing sister. But this case proves to be far more puzzling than expected, as Enola is thrown into a dangerous new world — from London’s sinister factories and colorful music halls to the highest echelons of society and 221B Baker Street itself. As the sparks of a deadly conspiracy ignite, Enola must call upon the help of friends — and Sherlock himself — to unravel her mystery. The game, it seems, has found its feet again!”
