A 'Sherlock' Joke Almost Ended Up in 'Avengers: Infinity War'

A 'Sherlock' Joke Almost Ended Up in 'Avengers: Infinity War'

Fans of Benedict Cumberbatch may have loved this!

While doing commentary for Avengers: Infinity War, the brothers noted that they wanted to insert a Sherlock Holmes joke. The moment would have occurred when Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr) and Doctor Strange (Cumberbatch) are having a back-and-forth in the park after they meet.

“I should’ve said, ‘No sh*t, Sherlock….Everybody really wanted that joke,” one of the brothers said (via THR).

Of course, Benedict plays Sherlock Holmes on the hit BBC series Sherlock. The show ran for four seasons and it’s unclear if it will be back for a fifth. Robert also played the character in two film versions with a third to come in 2020!

    You forgot to write Russo infront of brothers. Also, you should be able to differentiate between them you can’t just write “one of the brothers” said.
