Take a look at Mark Strong as Lord Blackwood in this new photo of the Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes:
Lord Blackwood is the villain of the story, the evil mastermind Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) will have to defeat.
Mark Strong said about his role:
“He needed to have an element of showmanship about him by virtue of the fact that he’s trying to persuade everyone around him that he’s so in league with the Devil that he’s able to conquer death. I just wanted to make him an equal adversary of Sherlock Holmes.”
Actor Mark Strong
Here some more pictures of Sherlock Holmes:
“Detective Sherlock Holmes (Downey Jr.) and his stalwart partner Watson (Law) engage in a battle of wits and brawn with a nemesis whose plot is a threat to all of England.”
This is not going to be your grandfather’s Sherlock Holmes!
I can’t wait to see the movie, and I hope it’s as good as Doyle’s masterpiece novel!
