What does Braun Strowman have to do with Sherlock Holmes?
The plot sees Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson trying to solve the riddles of Moriarty’s crimes before he kills Queen Victoria.
The movie was supposed to hit theaters on Aug. 3 but was pushed back to Nov. 9 and then again moved to Dec. 21. This could mean good and bad things as a Christmas release will bring in more eyes but also present more competition.
As for Braun Strowman’s Sherlock Holmes role, it seems that the movie is trying to make present-day jokes set in the historical settings.
Not only is there Braun Strowman and professional wrestling but there is also a moment where Watson creates a selfie stick for a photo opp with Sherlock Holmes and Queen Victoria.
