Sherlock Holmes 2 has been rolling cameras for awhile now, and aside from a first look at stars Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law and Noomi Rapace, there hasn’t been all that much to get excited about.

Well… there was that one video of Downey Jr. as Holmes dressed in drag, but I digress…

While we wait to see more of Jared Harris as the nefarious Professor Moriarty, or an official Sherlock Holmes 2 trailer, there have been some casting rumors floating around that still need to be settled, one way or another. Today, thanks to StrasTV we now have probably the most major Sherlock Holmes 2 casting rumor that can now be put to bed.

But before you take a look at the image below, you must be warned:


Yes, that is Rahcel McAdams standing next to director Guy Ritchie on the set, seemingly in costume as her character Irene Adler. There have been a lot of questions flying around about whether or not McAdams would return for Sherlock Holmes 2 and I would think it’s safe to say at this point that she will be back in some capacity.

But will her role be a major one (the damsel in distress)? Will it be a brief cameo (to aid Holmes – or, perhaps, suffer a cruel fate)? And, most importantly, will we get to see Noomi Rapace and Rachel McAdams trade hard stares and cold smiles in a battle of wills? (Fingers crossed.)

Either way, it’s pretty sweet to know that Irene Adler and/or McAdams will be back. Those who didn’t care for her in the first film – hey, no worries, maybe she’ll end up dead in this one. Everybody happy.

You can watch video shot on the Sherlock Holmes 2 set over on StrasTV. It’s not in English though, so there’s that.

Sherlock Holmes 2 will be in theaters on December 16, 2011.

  1. She was fine in the first, I never got the fuss about her.

    • When’d you change your name?

    • Agreed. I liked her in the movie. I’m also not a die-hard SH fan so maybe someone knows something I don’t because believe me, I have plenty to say about topics I’m familiar with. Like X-Men. Ugh.

  2. Yay! I’m glad she’s back!

    Now she just needs to take a trip to the Man of Steel set :)

    • I think you’d like my newest blog entry. :) It’s my top 5 picks for Lois.


      • Nice list! But yeah, Rachel is my #1 pick. I think she’d rock! She has the look and could certainly deliver the Lois attitude ;)

        • I sooo agree! Thanks for checking out my blog!

  3. I hope that they will use Colonel Sebastian Moran as the main villain in Sherlock Holmes 3.

  4. who cares about Rachel McAdams – I’M EXCITED TO SEE NOOMI!!!!!! I’ll bet she will be a better draw than McAdams any time.

    • Who cares about Rachel McAdams?!?!?! :o

      • I do!!!!

  5. who cares about Rachel McAdams??? I’m excited that Noomi Rapace is in the movie. I’ll bet she will be a better draw.

  6. Well, Noomi’s an amazing actress, so it’ll be interesting to see how well she does in her first English language film.

    As for Rachel… she’s so incredibly adorable, and it’ll be nice to see her, too.

    However, seeing RDJ in drag… can’t wait for that. :)

  7. That was the spoiler? Weak.

  8. Eh, Rachel McAdams was my only real problem with the first movie. I’m not glad that she’s returning. Hopefully it’s for only a small part. Noomi Rapace is a great actress, though. I’m looking forward to seeing her in this, and in Ridley’s Alien prequel.

  9. Lol I agree this is not much of a spoiler.. I do enjoy looking at her and I’d say shes a pretty decent actress. It makes sense to bring her character back since she had some sort of history with SH. Cheers

  10. We don’t have the same definition about major spoiler, but still a nice new thanx !

  11. I’m glad that Rachel will return as Irene Adler. She was GREAT in the first film.
    As a matter of fact, I’m watching “Red Eye” on TNT as I write this and she is
    GREAT in that flick as well. Come to think of it, she’s a pretty amazing actress.

  12. Can not wait for this. The first film was one of my favorites of that year. I hope this one can have the same result.

  13. great blog Jennifer,i was beginning think i was the only female on screen-rant cell

  14. wow 2 more females here that is great,hi Sophie/Enna was expecting an a spoiler image for Moriarti

  15. who?
