Is this from Sherlock Holmes or Chaplin: The Lost Years? Am I too wedded to the deerstalker cap and pipe? Should I come to just be happy with the bowler and venti coffee?
JustJared has snagged the first shots of Robert Downey Jr in his crime fighting clothes as Sherlock Holmes, and I just don’t know what to feel about them. They certainly go against the general vision of Holmes as a proper and well-together British gentlemen, but that image is probably pretty wrong. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle envisioned Holmes as ‘Bohemian’ and quite disorganized, leaving Watson to clean up after him.
So it’s a look that’s going to be jarring… and yet it’s probably more true to the source material than what we’ve seen in the past.
Or maybe he’s doing undercover work and he’ll have the deerhunter cap later. Who knows.
