First picture from Expendables 2 set features epic action trio

Oct. 11, 2011by: Paul Tassi

THE EXPENDABLES 2 is currently filming in Bulgaria, and now we have the first good photo from the set courtesy of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Twitter (I have yet to spell his name right on my first try ever).

The image is of the “Big 3” so to speak, as it’s hard to find larger action stars than Arnold, Sly Stallone and Bruce Willis. Well, at least 20 years ago. But these films are their lingering shot at action glory, and hopefully Arnold and Bruce actually get to kick some ass themselves this time instead of being mere cameo set pieces.

Arnold’s Hawaiian shirt doesn’t exactly scream “combat,” but perhaps he hadn’t changed into costume yet. Or perhaps he’s assaulting a beach resort and wants to blend in, I don’t know. In any case, looking forward to seeing the gang together again in the new film.

Extra Tidbit: Chuck Norris is in this picture too, but he's so stealthy you can't even see him.

Fuck Chuck Norris. Easily the worst of the 80s-90s "stars."
Flick should be good, though. I dug the first one.

Hawaiin Shirt!

God I hope he wears it throughout the entire film. It would be amazing to see Arnie poking fun at his action hero facade, kicking some ass in a fucking HAWAIIAN SHIRT.

Can't wait for this, loved the original one a whole shedload. The fat that these guys are still at it is just a testament to the power of the movies they used to make.

This pic alone is friggin awesome. Not once in the 80's or 90's did these three get together for something like this. Now, with this film, hopefully we will be seeing them all kick major ass. I was disappointed with the first film, even a bit bored with it, but this could make up for all that by truly giving us the action epic that I think action fans have waited for: one featuring all our favorite action stars, fighting together.

Arnold should be smoking a cigar in this pic and arm wrestling Carl Weathers! Why was he not in this movie? Can't wait for a trailer!

Great picture. Three giants.
lol @ Arnold's hair and outfit
Also Stallone and Willis must be standing on a crate next to him or something because they've never been so similar in height.

Love that pic, all those testosterone-filled memories! However, I wouldnt hold my breath for Arnie doing more than a cameo, according to his twitter page hes on the set just for a couple of days before he starts shooting "Last Stand".

I'll wait

I'll hold off on my opinion of EX2 until I see the flick. Not bad so far.

Why all the hating??

dont get all the hate for the first movie, It did what it set out to do and did it well, its not like it was trying to be high art, it was strictly brainless fun. anyhow everyone is untitled to an opinion no doubt, i for one can't wait for this one and although i never cared for Norris the additions of Van Damme, Adkins and extended roles for Willis and Arnuld make me want to do a back flip. Wheres the trailer already?!

You see, that was the problem with the first film, it didn't even manage to be brainless fun. It was tedious, boring and over-hyped.

These three together in one film alone, makes it worthy a visit to the cinema.
Also to see Arnolds comeback; he looks a lot younger in this pic.
However sincerely hope the sequel will be better.

Arnold wearing a Hawaiian shirt ? Bruce wearing a scarf ? Sylvester attempting to smile ? Is this Wild Hogs 2 ?

As you can tell, I don't care about this flick. First one didn't even reach the average level, I have no faith in a sequel. Even if I like two out of those three guys.
