Stallone responds to both critics and fans with a blunt statement regarding The Expendables 3

The Expendables 2 team explosive background

Before THE EXPENDABLES 2 even kicked down cinema doors back in August there was already talk of a third movie and what new actors might be integrated into the explosive team of awesomely-named and overly-violent mercenaries.  Director talk has been bandied about, with the likes of John Woo heading up the list of fan hopefuls.  And now Sylvester Stallone himself has decided to step in and add fuel to the fire he began back with the first movie by sharing an update on his Facebook page which covers 1) where a second sequel is now and 2) what he thinks about what fans and critics alike think of the series.  Check it out below, and strike back below that with your thoughts!

"We are preparing the film with the same passion and commitment as the previous two. We have confirmed Nicolas Cage, a master actor who gives a veneer intellectual group. Hopefully we can realize to Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes and Mickey Rourke. That is the great mission of the producer. We will continue with the same narrative scheme, the agility and the frenzy, which are inherent to the saga. What will definitely be the last? I can not guarantee. In principle it would be two deliveries, but the affection of the people encouraged us to work on a third. I guess as long as we amused ourselves by offering fun and people, we can continue playing 'The Expendables'. For now we are not as expendable as it should and as some critics want."

Do you think Stallone's just being optimistic about Ford, or does his mention of the name in this sort of public forum imply that talks are a bit further along than we all might have previously thought?

Extra Tidbit: Wish I could have been there for the initial naming session. Toll Road. Lee Christmas. Barney Ross. Great f**king names.
