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!

Benedict Cumberbatch Reacts to 'Sherlock' Co-Star Martin Freeman's 'Pathetic' Comments

Benedict Cumberbatch is firing back at comments made by his Sherlock co-star Martin Freeman.

Martin, who plays John Watson on the show, spoke about how starring in Sherlock wasn’t as fun for him because of the fan reaction to the show.

“Being in that show, it is a mini Beatles thing. People’s expectations, some of it’s not fun anymore. It’s not a thing to be enjoyed, it’s a thing of: ‘You better f—— do this, otherwise you’re a c—.’ That’s not fun anymore,” Martin told The Telegraph in a previous interview.

Benedict, who stars as Sherlock on the BBC show, responded in a recent interview.

“It’s pretty pathetic if that’s all it takes to let you not want to take a grip of your reality,” Benedict said. “What, because of expectations? I don’t know. I don’t necessarily agree with that.”

Is 'Sherlock' Ending? Showrunner Clarifies Benedict Cumberbatch's Season 4 Comments

Benedict Cumberbatch‘s comments on the future of Sherlock indicated that it may end with season four, upsetting fans of the show.

“It might be the end of an era,” he was quoted as saying (via EW). “It feels like the end of an era, to be honest. [Season 4] goes to a place where it will be pretty hard to follow on immediately. We never say never on the show. I’d love to revisit it, I’d love to keep revisiting it, I stand by that. But in the immediate future, we all have things that we want to crack on with and we’ve made something very complete as it is, so I think we’ll just wait and see.

Showrunner Steven Moffat is now saying Benedict was misquoted,

“This is really worth saying because it’s getting exhausting for us all. That’s not what Benedict said,” Steven said. “That’s what someone edited his words into the meaning of. It seems to be impossible these days not to be misquoted. He was quite specific about being keen to carry on. He went on to say he’s hard to get us all together. We want to keep the quality up. We haven’t even seen this [season air] yet. We don’t know. We haven’t sat down with the intent to anything yet. But we’re always aware that it could be over. But the fact is Benedict did not say that.”

The fourth season debuts on January 1 on PBS.
