Reports have Steven Seagal joining The Expendables 3 to help fight bad guy Mel Gibson

Jul. 5, 2013by: Alex Maidy

Take this as a rumor until we get confirmation from more sources, but fansite EXBlog is reporting that Bulgarian news outlets have re-confirmed that Mel Gibson will be playing the main villain in THE EXPENDABLES 3. The interesting note is they also confirm that Steven Seagal will be joining Wesley Snipes, Jackie Chan, Nicolas Cage, Milla Jovovich and the rest of Sylvester Stallone's crew for the latest chapter in the action franchise.

Seagal memorably played the bad guy in MACHETE for Robert Rodriguez, a role that Mel Gibson will also partake in the upcoming MACHETE KILLS. If this turns out to be true, this would mark Seagal's first theatrical release since MACHETE. I like the prospect of adding these stars to the movie but it also is sounding a bit like X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. Are they cramming too many actors into the movie?

The blog is also reporting that the screenplay for THE EXPENDABLES 3 is being rewritten to account for the bevvy of new characters, which hopefully means they are being included as substantial roles and not just another Chuck Norris/Deus Ex Machina part like in the second film.

I like THE EXPENDABLES series as pure mindless fun. While Stallone and Schwarzenegger seem to be floundering in their movies outside of this series, it is nice to know they can always come back and kick some ass.

Trailer

That trailer is awesome... until it leaves out the most important person:

MEL!

(also, where's Kurt Russell???)

What about Jeff Speakman, Billy Blanks, Olivier Gruner, Rutger Hauer, Jesse Ventura, Michael Dudikoff and the Barbarian Brothers?

May be they're secretly making 3 and 4 together?

I'll be glad to see Mel back on the big screen, but this also makes me feel a bit sad. The guy should be directing Oscar-worthy epics, and is probably still capable of some great performances... and yet with this and Machete Kills it looks like his A-list career really is dead and buried. Van Damme proved with JCVD & EX2 that he is a very capable (and popular) star, but it did nothing for his standing in Hollywood - I think Sly has missed a trick by not having him in EX3 as Vilain's twin.

Woah wait, Wesley Snipes will be in this? I thought he was still in jail.
Oh and Seagal has to hit the gym and lose the pony tail otherwise i'm not interested.

Meh. I'd much rather see someone like Chow Yun Fat, or Kurt Russell. I just never liked Steven Seagal one bit (he starred in like one or two good movies, at most). Hell, bring back JCVD, now he is awesome. If this happens I guess I won't be too upset, since he has a lot of fans and I know they'll be pleased, but I personally won't be too enthused.

I finally caught 'Expendables 2.'

There is no bigger of a boner kill than the ham-handed way they wedge Chuck Norris into it. Arnold and Bruce aren't worked in much better, but Norris's appearance is so, so so lame and nonsensical. A talentless, charmless hack who never had a legitimately good movie and owes all his money to the liberal internet hipsters he claims to despise.

Here's the rule Sly...unless they're committed to making an actual movie, don't just toss them in.

Wow, don´t be so rude to good old chuck. After Bruce Lee´s passing he´s been the only highkicking badass around. He´s the grand daddy of Lundgren, Stallone and Van Damme. And while his movie were not "good" from a critics standpoint, they were always entertaining for action fans.

Can we just get the Expendables to square off against a team of Asian Expendables which would consist of a rehired Jet li, Jackie Chan, CYF, Bolo Yeung, Tony Leong, and Michele Yeoh? Directed by John Woo naturally

Although it isn't specified here, I was hoping a rumor was true Cage would also be playing a bad guy, just to see him and Mel as a team against the meatheads of the title. Don't really feel one way or the other about Seagal.

I agree, I want to see Cage in bug nuts villain mode, he's kindve of a bland hero but give him a chance to chew up the scenery and he ll steal all the scenes.

Seagal really is not much more than a joke at this point, he's just really unlikeable. With the rest of the crew, I think lots of us have fond, nostalgic memories of them. Nobody in all honestly really dislikes Stallone, Lundgren, Van Damme or Schwarzengger. But Seagal, there's plenty to dislike and not a lot to be nostalgic for. Apparently he had a big falling out with Millennium Pictures, the studio behind the Expendables films, which might prevent him from appearing in any of these. Not a

I would rather then have gotten Carl Weathers instead.

stallone will never forgive Weathers about being a douche and asking for a bucketload just to use footage of him in the last Rocky. It would be cool to see him but it will never happen.

WTF, I never considered Steven Segal to be a great action hero, in the sense I would never put him in the class of Arnold, Stallone, VanDamme, etc...why? because Segal never had a series of hit movies...I mean you are hard pressed to think of a series of classic action movies from Segal..and once Segal faded from the picture, he started making direct to DVD movies....I have nothing really against him, I am just saying he shouldnt be in Expendables 3.

Please no!

They should just save their money and hire on of Seagals dozen or so body doubles who did all his action scenes the last 10 years!

Asylum Expendables

I think Asylum needs to do with their own Expendables with all the B-movie stars like Lorenzo Lamas, Patrick Bergin, Dean Cain, Mario Van Peebles, Casper Van Dien, Marc Singer, C. Thompson Howell, Antonio Sabato Jr., Richard Greico, etc.

I hope this is true. Segal is still a bad ass motherfucker, even with his weight. Shit on Arnie all you want, while Last Stand didnt bank much at the box office its still a pretty damn good flick.

The more the merrier

Expendables can get away with too many characters compared to X-Men. Didn't mind the Norris screen time, he's my favorite, but he did more than enough with his screen time. Now if they could just find a way to bring Adkins back to life!
