Some more sequel news!  
Warner Bros has announced a December 16th 2011 release date for the Guy Ritchie-directed sequel Sherlock Holmes 2, starring Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law.

The film will be going head to head with the Brad Bird-directed Mission: Impossible IV, one week after Martin Scorsese’s 3D movie The Invention of Hugo Cabret , and one week before Steven Spielberg’s 3D performance capture adaptation of The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn and Cameron Crowe’s adaptation of We Bought A Zoo.

Also, Producer Joel Silver confirmed to Sci-Fi Wire that Rachel McAdams will return for the sequel, stating that “she’ll be present”. But I wouldn’t expect her to have a large role as the actress is tentatively scheduled to begin filming on Terrence Malick’s untitled next film in the fall.

Silver also confirms that the next film will pay off and revolve around Sherlock’s archnemesis Moriarty. Brad Pitt had previously rumored to be in line for the role.

I'm thrilled, but also skeptical about how they're going to use Irene's character again. I liked her in the first one but obviously the dynamic between Holmes and Watson has always been the main focus in the stories. A third person just sort of unbalances it. MOAR BROMANCE PLX

The rumors I read (and I sadly cannot remember where I read them, otherwise I would link) suggested that another leading lady would take Irene's place, which, um, NO PLEASE. I mean, I get Irene's presence, she's THE woman for pete's sake, so it's not to bad. But she's THE woman for a reason. Sherlock DOESN'T LIKE LADIES. So if they try to give him another love interest I will be pissed.

So, Hollywood, you need a female lead to sell tickets and fight off the OMG GAY? Give Mary a bigger part. She kicks enough ass, and I'd like to see some of Watson's married life. Mostly for the

"Oh dear, Holmes seems to require my assistance at this late hour, but I feel terribly rude just leaving and--"

"Jesus, dear, just go have adventures with your boyfriend."

I'm skeptical about how they'll use Irene, too. I'll be cautiously optimistic, though, especially if it'll be a small part. I'll look forward to it based on both the Holmes-Irene banter and also UNF RACHEL. And who knows, maybe she'll get Holmes naked again. ;D

The thing I'm hoping for in the sequel? MYCROFT. MYCROFT MYCROFT AND MORE MYCROFT. RDJ has hinted at it, so I hope we get something.

Hot damn this comment got longer than I anticipated. I HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS.
