A new image has been released for Sherlock Holmes 2 along with some new details on the film. Hero Complex reports that currently-untitled sequel takes place a year after the events of the first film and sees Holmes in pursuit of Professor Moriarty (Mad Men’s Jared Harris), who “might be the world’s first supervillain”. The film also introduces Noomi Rapace in her first American role as a “feisty” gypsy named Sim. Along for the ride is Stephen Fry as Sherlock’s brother Mycroft Holmes, a character who is, according to producer Susan Downey, “stranger and perhaps even more brilliant,” than Sherlock. Meanwhile, as Sherlock and Watson pursue Moriarty, Watson is trying to keep his relationship with Mary Morstan (Kelly Reilly) afloat.
