“The Expendables 2” San Diego Comic-Con Poster
A new ’80s action movie themed poster of The Expendables 2 for SDCC has hit the web. Radiating an aura of masculinity, this poster has it all for the action star mash-up sequel.

“The Expendables 2” (2012) Fan Trailer - “Made In America”
YouTube channel The Monocular Group return once again with a fan-made trailer for the mash-up action film, Expendables 2. This testosterone-laced fan trailer takes shots at all the recent major visual effects-heavy blockbuster films—including the likes of John Carter, The Amazing Spider-Man, The Dark Knight Rises, The Avengers and Green Lantern—in favour of the traditional action film that had its heyday in the 80’s.
With The Expendables 2 set for release later this year, and featuring both Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger along with action icons like Jean-Claude Van Damme and Chuck Norris, this trailer does its best to champion the film among all other summer blockbusters. It’s quite the fitting trailer that had my inner child smiling gleefully at how cheesy it was. Was this trailer necessary to get me to watch the movie? No, but it only helps and gives me something new to watch until a new trailer is released.
Remaining 11 Character Posters For “The Expendables 2”
As mentioned earlier in the day, Lionsgate has released the remaining eleven character posters across the net over a wide variety of news outlets including the film’s very own Facebook page.
Like Bruce Willis, the rest of the cast received their own character posters as seen above. The cast is headlined by Sylvester Stallone, the aforementioned Willis, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris, Jet Li, Jason Statham, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Dolph Lundgren and newcomers Liam Hemsworth and Nan Yu along with action icon Arnold Schwarzenegger pictured below.
Upping the testosterone levels for the upcoming sequel to The Expendables, it’s being reported that Jean Claude Van Damme and Chuck Norris have been officially confirmed to appear.
The film is apparently also trying to get Nicolas Cage and John Travolta as well.
“We’ll have a big showdown between me and Van Damme, which has been anticipated for a long time, so it should be a good one,” Sylvester Stallone said, adding, “We’ve got Chuck Norris and I think Nic Cage… We’re trying to work out different scenarios. I like using people that had a moment and then maybe have fallen on some hard times and give them another shot.”
As far as Travolta is concerned, Stallone added that the main factor, as with anyone involved, is scheduling. The Expendables 2 is slated to begin shooting soon in Bulgaria, and is aiming for an August 2, 2012 release date.
