Fan-Favorite Robert Downey Jr. Movie Series Coming to Netflix

The Marvel Cinematic Universe may exist almost exclusively on Disney+, but fan-favorite star and franchise originator Robert Downey Jr. is about to have a big presence on Netflix. On Wednesday, Netflix released the complete list of movies and TV shows being added to the streamer's roster through the month of April, and one of Downey's other popular franchises is on its way. The Sherlock Holmes movies starring Downey and Jude Law will soon be available to stream on Netflix.

The biggest day for new additions on Netflix next month is on April 1st, and that's when both of the Downey-starring Sherlock movies are set to arrive. Sherlock Holmes and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows are being added to the streamer's lineup on the very first day of the month.

Sherlock Holmes has been a popular and successful franchise for Downey, even though there have only been two films to this point. The original film from 2009 made more than $524 million at the worldwide box office, and A Game of Shadows followed two years later, raking in nearly $544 million. A third Sherlock Holmes movie is currently in development, with both Downey and Law set to return and Dexter Fletcher stepping in to direct. Guy Ritchie directed the first two movies in the franchise.

In addition to the two Sherlock Holmes films, Netflix is adding quite a few other titles at the start of next month. Here's the full list of movies and shows coming to the streaming service on April 1st:
