It has been a mystery worthy of Sherlock Holmes whether Rachel McAdams and her Adler character would return in the sequel to Sherlock Holmes. Now that a second trailer for Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows has arrived, the mystery has been solved: McAdams is indeed back. As a certain someone would say, “Elementary!”
Robert Downey Jr. is back as Holmes and of course Jude Law returns as his sidekick Watson. What has us most excited about Game of Shadows is the debut of the notorious nemesis of Holmes, Moriarty, played by Jared Harris.
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows hits theaters December 16.
