Stallone! Willis! Arnold!! Chuck Norris!!! An exclusive look at the Expendables 2 poster!

Nov. 18, 2011by: Mike Sampson

It's hard to imagine a movie like THE EXPENDABLES getting more star-studded but somehow Sylvester Stallone has done just that for the sequel. In addition to beefed up roles for Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger (who will no longer be resorted to a simple cameo), the sequel boasts Jean Claude Van-Damme, Liam Hemsworth and CHUCK NORRIS. [Insert your favorite CHUCK NORRIS joke here.]

While the original film looked like a police lineup of old action stars, the sequel doesn't make that same mistake. We've got an exclusive look at the poster for THE EXPENDABLES 2 (or EX2 as they're now calling it) and the cast is bringing the big guns. Literally.

I'm hoping that with a poster upon us that means a teaser trailer should be hitting theaters soon (with MISSION:IMPOSSIBLE maybe?). For now enjoy the sheer testosterone laden audacity of having Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Chuck Norris, Jason Statham, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren and Terry Crews all on the same poster.

[Ed. note: Aware the poster has gibberish text in the billing block. That's standard Lorem Ipsum text the artists use to layout the design when the credits aren't final.]

Chuck Norris made this poster just to tell us who are the ones he's going to kill first.

BTW... we are not on it, does it mean we are next??

How many of those people are going to be in the movie for 15 seconds like Bruce and Arnold were last time? Even though their faces were plastered all over the posters and trailer.

This looks spectacular!

...unfortunately, Lionsgate has declared this poster to be a photoshop fake, which explains why Sly is wearing the beret from Demolition man, and the Arnie and JCVD pictures look all too familiar.

u have a link to that confirmation? Its a bit of a confusing statement considering some of these dudes are wearing outfits the on set photos captured (e.g Norris, Van Damme, Lundgren) anyway even if its a fake its still masterly, no doubt.

the link didnt work unfortuntly but after looking at the Stallone image i can see your right, its an image from Demolition Man with a painted on mustache, that sucks. thanks anyway and glad you like the name "Point Blank" was a masterpiece no doubt.

Oh, no jet li or randy courture on the poster?

Say what? they should have been killed by dolph lundgren and stone cold in the first one since their screen time was limited anyways? Yeah, i thought so to.

Especially with jet li. Rather have a shocking and epic death rather than a cool actor being underused.

I like the look it's miles better than the lineup poster from Expendables 1. I hate the name "EX2 ?", also where's Jet Li? 3rd billing and he doesn't even show up on the poster?

This is the manliest poster ever created. There's so much testosterone, muscle, and automatic firepower on that poster that it's about to explode. I'd love to have this poster on my wall, but I'm afraid that no wall in my place could contain it. Just too much machismo on one surface.

wow! Like a who's who of action stars. Terry Crews seems a little out of place. Would have liked to see Jet Li in there somewhere. Hope he still has a substantial role in this movie. Digging Sly's handle bar mustache. Can you believe Chuck Norris is in his 70's?

Why does Hollywood gotta keep an Asian brother down??? That's why we need an Asian spin-off of the The Expendables! Jet Li, Donnie Yen, Chow Yun Fat, Tony Jaa, Sonny Chiba... Hell it'd probably be even better than the Expendables.
