Robert Downey has joked that the next 'Sherlock Holmes' installment will be entitled 'A Game of Trannies'.

The star, along with Jude Law and director Guy Ritchie, was asked at a London press conference - at which Entertainmentwise was present - for the film if there were any underlying homoerotic themes in the latest adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle's detective series.

He replied: "You mean onscreen, yeah? What happens in our private lives is another matter entirely. Jude and I have decided to save Warner Bros money - we've been sharing a suite during the entirety of the press junket. We asked for a small room, with a single bed."

Downey continued: "We prefer two sinks so we can wash up before and after our nuptials. As for wearing each other's clothes to please each other, that's something we're going to save for the next installment - 'Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Trannies'."

Holmes spends much of the sequel to the 2009 film in disguise, and when asked what his best disguise ever was, responded: "About 20 years ago, I went on a tear, and put on a 'Planet of the Apes' mask thinking that would prevent people from knowing how blitzed I was. It worked for about the first 15 seconds. 'It's me, Cornelius!'"

Downey has admitted that he struggles to cross-dress for a role in front of his wife.

'Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows' is released on December 16.
