Growing up, I was a big fan of Basil Rathbone's Holmes. But then came along Jeremy Brett. Based on the trailer, Downy Jr. as Holmes is a comic book character and has nothing to do with Conan Doyle's creation.

I'm huge fan of Jeremy Brett too. Regardless of how many others have played Holmes or might play Holmes in future, I think Brett is the man. As for Guy Ritchie, the whole concept of him doing an action/mystery/period costume piece just seemed weird from the git go. His genre is the hipster/swinging London/gangster mashup and he should probably stick to it. RocknRolla, Snatch, and Lock Stock & 2 Smoking Barrels are great fun. Ritchie is very good at creating his own unusual, appealing characters-no need to try & reinvent someone else's.
