In case you forgot all the names from the [posters yesterday](https://awesomefriday.ca/2014/04/the-expendables-3-has-a-cast-of-thousands-each-with-their-own-poster/), here’s a trailer that rattles them all off.
Yippie-ki-yay, mother lover. Sylvester Stallone confirmed today ([via Twitter](https://twitter.com/TheSlyStallone/status/364831174075486208), of course) that Bruce Willis is being exchanged wholesale for Harrison Ford in the upcoming *Expendables 3*. According to further tweets, there’s quite a spat forming between Stallone and Willis, with the former calling the latter “greedy and lazy”. Fighting talk indeed.
It’s been a rumour for a long time that Mel Gibson might join the cast of The Expendables franchise, and at this point how many more old man action stars are left to cast? Anyway, Sylvester Stallone seems to have confirmed that Gibson will be the bad guy in the next installment of the franchise with a not so subtle tweet

Say what you will about Mr. Gibson but remember that this is the guy who played Mad Max, William Wallace and Ben Martin and a host of other crazy-just-under-the-surface and completely-when-pushed characters. Plus, again, old man action star, so it seems like it might be a good fit.
Expendables 1 was pretty bad and Expendables 2 was so bad it was good, so here’s hoping Expendables 3 follows on from 2 when it comes out in August 2014.
