Will there be a spot for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in Expendables 3?

Mar. 14, 2013by: Niki Stephens

One of my favorite people on Twitter, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson should have been in one of the EXPENDABLES films by now, right? I mean, he's sort of a gimme. I get how the first was basically a big reunion of awesome 80s/90s action heroes, but why didn't Johnson make the cut for the second? Also, why has no one called Vin Diesel? Are we waiting for THE EXPENDABLES 4 which will probably be for action stars of the 2000s?

Regardless, I think we'd all love to see Johnson trade flexes amongst his fellow action peers. Collider asked Johnson if Sylvester Stallone called him up for a role in THE EXPENDABLES 3, would he take it, this is what he said:

It all depends. Yeah, sure. I like Sly. Hes been a buddy for some time. That continues to grow, too and Im excited about that and I know a lot of guys are. I love the first one and Im excited about the second one. Sure, if he needs somebody to hunt somebody down, he knows where Im at.

I would like more of The Rock in my life. I also can't wait to see Jackie Chan in the next one. He's so freaking awesome. I'm sure they will gather up some good names for the third installment. You can catch Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson next in G.I. JOE: RETALIATION on March 28th and PAIN & GAIN on April 26th.

I like the idea however having the Rock and Vin Diesel in EX3 would make it feel too much like Fast & Furious. The one actor they truly need for this franchise is Christopher Lambert.

EX3 NEEDS THE PEOPLE CHAMP!

If hes serious about killing some people off to bring in new guys, kill of crews and randy and replace them with the Rock, or hell make the Rock a bad guy, anything really to get him in there, it would be great to see the Rock and Sly throw down

Gotta' respect The Rock for being a multitasking badass. There was a time when no one took him seriously because of his wrestling background. He proved them wrong by being consistent, by sticking to his guns, and by constantly challenging himself. Today, he's not only a major action star, he's also the current WWE Champion and a main-eventer at WrestleMania 29. He kicks ass in the ring, out of the ring, does reality TV, dominates social media, and most of all is a modest, friendly,

I'd really pay to see any of his films on the big screen.

Nice!

About time, very welcome edition. I just wish he would have had the good sense to call Rock up first so we could have had an action film version of a Rock/Stone Cold Steve Austin match.

This is one guy I actually wouldn't mind being in every action franchise out there.

I'm cool with this...

...at first I didn't think he belonged in the Expendables films because it's mostly about 80's and 90's action stars while the Rock and Diesel are known more for their movies in the past decade or so. But I always seem to like him in any action movie he's in, he does have a lot of charisma. Plus I'm really glad he and Diesel came to their senses and started doing action films again instead of awful kid comedies.

Dwayne Johnson's a damn good actor and a genuine action star

I was pleasantly surprised at how good he was in SNITCH. He deserves a well-made action film that'll do for his career what DIE HARD did for Bruce Willis or TERMINATOR for Arnold Schwarzenegger.

I'm stoked on Jackie Chan being in the next one. I just wish he'd stop talking shit on the United States.

I agree with Rukas. The Rock is the closet thing we have to Arnold these days. I've become a huge fan.

The Rock is the total package. He has the physique, the acting chops, and the charisma. He's the Arnold of our generation, but a better actor.

I will see ANYTHING the man is in as long as it isn't the Toothfairy.

This is such an easy decision for Stallone. Having the Rock in the film would make said film thy much better and badass. I mean, why wouldn't he NOT want him in the film.
