Mel Gibson to play the villain in Expendables 3?

June 10th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

You might remember when Sylvester Stallone was setting up The Expendables 3, he asked his Twitter followers what they thought of the possibility of Mel Gibson directing the movie. We posted it on FB. For the most part, the response was positive, and a lot of people would have liked to see him do it. But then Stallone went on to hire Patrick Hughes to direct the movie. But apparently that doesn’t mean Gibson isn’t going to be a part of it. In fact, he could end very well up playing the villain! 

According to Roger Friedman at Showbiz411:

“I’m told that Gibson will appear inTheExpendables 3, the third installment of Sylvester Stallone’s shoot em up series that also features his former Planet Hollywood buddies and partners Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger. There’s no confirmation, but the source seemed serious.”

He’s careful to say that there is no confirmation. The site goes on to say that if the rumor is true, he will play the villain. It’s no secret that Mel Gibson’s career has taken a hit due to his exploits. The man has some issues, as we all do, but the guy is still incredibly talented. I think almost everyone deserves a second chance. Remember when no one wanted to work with Robert Downey Jr.?
