With the sequel Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows opening later this month, The Avengers opening next May, Iron Man 3 set to to shoot next year, writer Drew Pearce recently hired to write Sherlock Holmes 3, and Avengers 2 already in the works, it's safe to consider actor Robert Downey Jr. the king of movie franchises.
Add to that another potential franchise in Perry Mason, a project that was just recently announced as another acting and producing vehicle for Downey Jr. In an interview with Extra, Downey Jr. confirmed that Perry Mason was a possibility, though he has a pretty busy, aforementioned schedule to work on first.

Yeah [it's happening], but it doesn't have to happen right away. I'll come to talk to you about The Avengers next spring and then I'll shoot Iron Man 3 and then I think I'll, you know, take a pause there.
