Holy Crap. Check Out a Bulked Up Mel Gibson Getting Ready for The Expendables 3


The Expendables Movie Banner Title

You probably already know by now that “The Expendables 3″ will be pitting Mad Max (aka Mel Gibson) against Rambo (aka Sylvester Stallone), with Gibson set to play the villain in the upcoming explosion-a-thon sequel. This will be Gibson’s second major villainous role, following up on his campy villainy turn in “Machete Kills”.

So what is Gibson doing to prepare for the role? From the looks of these L.A. shots, the 57-year old actor has been hitting the gym. And I mean, HITTING THE GYM. Dude looks bulked up!

The plot of “The Expendables 3″ will find Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Jason Statham) and the rest of the team coming “face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson), who years ago co-founded The Expendables with Barney. Stonebanks subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone who Barney was forced to kill… or so he thought. Stonebanks, who eluded death once before, now is making it his mission to end The Expendables — but Barney has other plans. Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of Expendables team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise in the Expendables’ most personal battle yet.”

Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture and Terry Crews return (sans Bruce Willis). They will be joined by new/old blood Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, and Harrison Ford, along with really new blood Kellan Lutz, UFC champ Ronda Rousey and Victor Ortiz. Yup, quite a loaded cast, this.

Patrick Hughes is directing the film, due out next year.

    Can’t wait to see Mad Max take on Rambo!!!

    I’m worried about the “New Era of Expendables”.

    I don’t want the franchise to revolve around Stallone and Statham only with the rest of the cast to be replaced by eye candy youngsters.

    If any, Stallone should bring the new generation, tech-savy to be the villains, and show the world that if you want to conquer the world, you won’t do it sitting in a chair in front of a computer. YOU GOTTA GET UP AND KICK SOME ASS!!!!

    • Juggernaut

      Segal only got fat because he wanted his eyes to get squintier, everyone knows that all of his bad assery comes from the squinted eyes!

    • Skarookidoo

      It’s called Human Growth Hormone. He’s not gonna get like that naturally at his age.

      • Anubis

        Actually it is possible without human growth hormone. Its a lot harder, but it is possible.
