Nancy Spinger’s young-adult novel series on Enola Holmes, the younger sister of famed literary detective Sherlock Holmes, grew popular since publication in 2006, and is now set to hit the silver screen with an all-star cast.

Stranger Things‘ Millie Bobby Brown has already been casted to play the titular character, having appeared in her feature film debut in Godzilla: King of the Monsters, with Helena Bonham Carter tapped to play Enola’s mother. And the actor to portray Sherlock Holmes? Superman himself, Henry Cavill.

Though he’s more known for action-oriented roles such as the Man of Steel in the DC Extended Universe (Man of SteelJustice League) and Mission: Impossible – Fallout, roles like in The Man from U.N.C.L.E. show he can be suave and charming – though an eccentric character like Holmes would be interesting to see.

Harry Bradbeer (Killing EveFleabag) will sit in the director’s chair while British writer Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and the Cursed ChildWonderHis Dark Materials) will work on the screenplay.

It’s time to see which of the two Holmes is the smarter one.
