The Los Angeles Times (yes, it is still around) has news that isn’t good for the Platinum Studios Cowboys and. Aliens movie.  Robert Downey Jr. won’t be putting on a cowboy hat and fighting it out with visitors from beyond.  Instead, speculators believe Downey is gearing up for a new Sherlock Holmes film.  While Jon Favreau appears to still be on board, for now the Iron Man team of director/actor won’t be using their six shooters to stop and alien invasion.

While a sequel to Sherlock Holmes would be welcome, with the coming release of Iron Man 2, I can’t help but wonder if Downey isn’t saving himself for a third Iron Man film, or better yet, the Avengers flick.  If Sherlock Holmes 2: Gaslight Boogaloo is greenlit, it would go into production in June.
