With fans of all ages excited about Netflix’s release of “Enola Holmes 2,” both actors and viewers needed to adjust to the fact that a main character from the original, Mycroft Holmes, would not be involved. In an interview with Screen Rant, co-star Henry Cavill expressed his excitement for the movie’s return, as well as the disappointment of Sam Claflin stepping away. “Absolutely love to have the whole team back together. I missed Sam [Claflin] desperately, but to have the whole team back together was wonderful,” he said. When Director Harry Bradbeer spoke with Collider, he explained why Claflin was absent, as well as the chances of his possible return.
When asked about the reasoning for Claflin skipping out on the sequel, Bradbeer explained it had nothing to do with the film’s story direction nor his performance. “Well, it was Sam’s schedule that became very clear, so Sam was not going to be in it,” he says. “We were very sorry that Sam couldn’t be in this one.” Assuming his schedule would allow it, Bradbeer declared that it’s possible for fans to see Claflin appear in a future film. ” Absolutely love him, and we would love to have him again, ” he fondly replied. This should be music to Cavill’s ears, should he become Sherlock Homes again in a future film. Until then, fans will have to patiently wait to see if he reprises his Superman role in an upcoming DC film.
