Henry Cavill revealed on Instagram that he wrapped filming his scenes as Sherlock Holmes for Enola Holmes 2. We can’t wait to see Cavill’s iteration as Sherlock to return to Netflix next year.

Cavill Mentioned Filming on Instagram

Cavill posted an Instagram video after a run to talk about exercise and motivation on Sunday, November 28. In it, he quickly mentioned wrapping filming on Enola Holmes 2. While this doesn’t mean the movie has wrapped, it hints that it will be done soon.

In Enola Holmes, Cavill plays Sherlock Holmes, the supportive older brother of Enola that decides to let her forge her path into adulthood as a detective. He didn’t have much screen time in the first film, and we still don’t know how much he’ll have in the sequel.

Fans, including myself, are hoping to see Holmes possibly team up with his younger sister. I’m also still waiting to see Dr. John Watson, Sherlock’s long-term mystery-solving partner, show up after being hinted at in the first film.

The portrayal of the character is extremely different from other iterations, including Robert Downey Jr. in 2009’s Sherlock Holmes and Benedict Cumberbatch in BBC’s Sherlock Holmes television series.

Cavill is best known for his roles as Superman in the DC movies and Geralt in The Witcher.

Other Cast Members Are Returning

In addition to Henry Cavill, a few actors are reprising their roles from Enola Holmes. First and foremost, Millie Bobby Brown will be returning in the title role. Brown is also well-known for her role as Eleven in Stranger Things.

Helena Bonham Carter is confirmed to return as Eudoria Holmes, Enola and Sherlock’s mother. Edith, a member of Eudoria’s secret society, will also be returning, played by Susan Wokoma. Adeel Akhtar will also be reprising the role of Inspector Lestrade.

Enola’s potential love interest, and the heart of the first movie’s mystery, Tewkesbury, played by Louis Partridge, will also be returning for the sequel. This was announced shortly after the sequel was confirmed.

Sam Claflin portrayed Sherlock and Enola’s brother, Mycroft Holmes, in Enola Holmes. However, there has been no news if he will be returning in Enola Holmes 2.

Many new cast members join in currently unnamed roles, including David Thewlis, Hannah Dodd, Abbie Hern, Gabriel Tierney, Serrana Su-Ling Bliss, and Sharon Duncan-Brewster.

What Is ‘Enola Holmes 2’ About?

Enola Holmes followed Sherlock Holmes’s teenage sister, Enola, as she embarked on her first adventure to find her mother. And while she may not have found her, she did make a name for herself as a detective by solving another missing persons case in London.

Much is still unknown about the sequel, including the official title. In terms of plot, there are many paths the Netflix film could go.

The first path, and most likely, is to adapt the second book in the series. Titled The Case of the Left-Handed Lady, Enola takes off on her second adventure to find the missing Lady Cecile while avoiding her brothers.

Another path would be to merge a few of the books to wrap up the film adaptations within three or four movies. I honestly hope this isn’t the case because each book deserves its own film. I will admit, though, I am curious how Netflix would do this.

Other paths include adapting another book in the series or creating a whole new mystery for the movie. If they choose to skip the second and adapt another book, I would hope they choose The Case of the Bizarre Bouquets so we can finally meet Dr. Watson.

Do you think the film will live up to the hype?
